The ever widening gap between the rich and poor







http://policy-practice.oxfam.org.uk/...ng-more-338125

A new study by Oxfam found that the richest 1% of the world's population will own 50% of the planetís wealth by the year 2016! It shows the ever widening gap between the rich and the poor in capitalist countries. This contradiction is prevented from exploding through the following means: 1) an abundant technical capacity that is spent in the production and distribution of waste, planned obsolescence, environmental destruction, military products, space junk, cheap gadgets, low-cost technology, and affordable luxury goods that are spread to the broad strata of the Earthís population, thereby increasing the overall standard of living but at the same time concealing the radical inequality and anarchy at the heart of the capitalist system; 2) the concentration and expansion of the police and military state to protect and preserve the rich as well as an anarchic obsolete capitalist system is accomplished through the monopolization and mobilization of economic, political, and technological power, which is combined with a high degree of governmental intervention in the economy and in the private spheres of human life; 3) the passivity and indifference of the masses is further achieved through the scientific manipulation of private and group behavior, both at work and at leisure, including consciousness and the unconscious, for political and economic purposes by a massive propaganda machine that works day and night in support of the capitalist system (i.e., Internet, TV, news media, mass advertising for the latest and fastest gadgets and technology, satellite radio, Hollywood movies, constant political lies and manipulation, the spread of the so-called "terror" threat, atheist diversion from the class struggle, etc, etc,).

I wonder if the natural state of our species in large populations is to have a small upper class 1% or so that owns like 95% or higher of the society's accumulated wealth, with an even smaller marginally well off servant class, and every one else is slave class. This seems to have been the state for most of the recorded civilizations, and our brief time approaching some measure of equity was but a dream within a dream...

Well well - Hello Dennis!
Looks like Mr Markuzie is breaking the conditions of his police order again.
Can we have some more big yellow ducks? I likes me some duck.

All he's done is link his crazy shit with 3 high trending issues on the web. The Oxfam study is very interesting though.

Oh come on Dennis - I don't do walls of tedious looking shite.
How about a few goats or nucular exploshuns if we can't have yellow ducks.
Do they put you in a comfy jacket when they take you away from mommy?

I checked it out so others wouldn't have to.

The link seems to be a reproduction of the article from the Rosenhan Experiment. You've likely heard if it before - it's the one where a bunch of (sane) psych majors went undercover in different psych wards by pretending to have symptoms and then acting normal once admitted.
From what I understand from it, the study exposed major flaws in diagnosis of mental illness at the time.

However, I think our friend here has misunderstood the relevance of the study and is trying to point to it as being some sort of evidence sane/insane being the same thing. Spoiler Alert: it's not.

Well well - looks like the twat won't be able to deliver on my long lost fatwa ...
... not when he'll probably be banged up for a few months.

I really do feel quite sorry for the obviously sick fucker - but then again, when he was offered help and he decided to do things his own way - he can go fester and lick the windows till the next time. Wanker.

Did anyone notice he is wearing a Depeche Mode t-shirt under his coat? It's one of his quaint obsessions.

Poor ol' Dennis has a stay of execution.

The sentence hearing for a man who threatened people online and then ignored a court order by further harassing one of his victims has been delayed because a psychiatrist wants to testify in the case.
I'd like to testify as well - I can do it tomorrow, and it won't take long!

Maybe this time they'll order him to receive psychological help.

Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.
