I started this forum last year when Sciforums was down for the count: http://www.thescienceforum.com/viewtopic.php?t=850&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0 Here are some factoids: 1. The rich are far better educated than the poor. 2. The rich have more freedom to choose what they want to do. A rich person can choose whether he wants to go on a cruise or build a natural food center. The poor person does not have this choice. 3. The poor people in USA are rich relative to poor people in other countries. Poor people in USA are still poor nonetheless because they are oppress by the rich. 4. Everything the rich have and consume come from the backs of the poor. 5. There are 3 general systems. A - A system devoted to the elimination of desperation. B - A system that turns a blind eye to desperation. C - A system that ensures desperation exists in order to function. System-A proceeds to be highly functional. System-C is extremely disfuctional. Capitalism portrays itself to abide by System-B, but is really System-C. Capitalism does not work. It is an archaic system that has no concept of technology. In order for a capitalist system to function, desperation is necessary. Therefore, a capitalist system is flawed. A system in which desperation is unecessary, and even more so is set up to reduce or eliminate desperation proceeds to be highly functional. 6. The rich have great influence over the masses through their control over the media. 7. The law does not uphold human rights. It upholds the rights of the rich over the poor. It is based on might makes right. Whatever is beneficial to the rich is what the law is right according to the law.
