obscene wealth inequality

Several news reports today highlight the growing domination of wealth, power and economic/banking control by the few.
obscene wealth inequality


The Oxfam plea:
 "Oxfam calls on governments to take action to reverse this trend. It wants workers paid a living wage and the gap with executive rewards to be narrowed. It calls for an end to the gender pay gap, compensation for unpaid care and the promotion of equal land and inheritance rights for women. And it wants governments to take action on lobbying, reducing the price of medicines, taxing wealth rather than consumption and using progressive public spending to tackle inequality."

 The report doesn't seem to mention the strategies used by the pathologically wealthy to enslave nearly everyone for ever, but inflated house prices (forcing the vulnerable into a lifetime of extortionate rents and governments into sometimes naive benefits); corporate media and advertising to encourage loans, hire purchase and destructive consumerism.

    I say, this Oxfam entity must be the Anti-Christ. As I look out upon the grounds of my palatial estate here in Kensington on Trent I can't imagine that any people are having money woes. Why, all they have to do if they require more money is to contact their accountant and have an under butler fetch the cash from the bank. It's all so very easy. Good day.
