Why won't some people support a minimum wage? They claim it will take jobs from others who could also earn a pittance. Why won't the billionaire class take just a little less and so pay more and at the same time employ more? Why do they continue to live off the blood of the poor?
Why are CEO's paid such enormous sums yet refuse to pay their workers any more? Why do billionaires need the very first billion let alone the rest? Is not one billion more than enough? Are they so deserving above others that they can sit on gold toilets while others starve outside their doors? Nobody is worth that much that they cannot share a few more pennies for the poor. Nobody needs to live off of more than just one million let alone a thousand million. What is our choice? Could your choice be as simple as give it away or go to hell like the greedy guy in the Parable of Lazarus and the Rich Man?
Why do we refuse what is within our powers to do? Why do we have such asinine politicians and billionaires who insist that everyone could be wealthy if they just got some motivation and worked harder. Such damnable lies are told so often that many actually believe it, especially among those who prefer not to be told how greedy they are and that they fired the first shots in class warfare, not the poor.
Poverty is sometimes caused by ignorance and laziness, but that is only a small part of the problem. The biggest causes of poverty are generations of exploitation and privation by people who take billions from the poor and the government while depriving the labor of just and fair wages. There are so many immoral evils committed against the poor by the wealthy that we lose count. One such evil is the lies we call advertising. Let's call a spade a spade. Advertising may as well be called temptation which entices the poor to spend money mostly for useless items for which they are willing to sell their honor and freedom. As such, so much advertising entices us to family destruction by making the rich richer and the poor poorer.
The rich and less poor have been exploiting the poor for far too long. It's time for justice. It's time for us to become what we pretend to be, a land of real equality.
