Almost half the super-rich individuals are from the United States

And we’re worried about refugees? Are we being played by the uber-rich? They keep us fighting amongst ourselves so we don’t see what’s actually going on. They own the media that publishes the stories that keep us distracted. They are VERY AFRAID OF US. Do you think they care if half the world’s population dies? That would just solve global warming and pollution problems for THE WORLD THEY THINK THEY OWN. It was 85 people just a couple of years ago. Soon it will be ONE.

You could tax away 99% of their wealth and they would still be wealthier than 99.99% of the world population. Thank you Globalization for making that nearly impossible, globalization promoted by the world’s wealthiest…
