I will be writing the next few articles about oligarchy and oligarchs. Please stay tune because you will be hearing about the last dozen years where the one percent has grown tremendously financial. The top quarter percent of the one percent has reached financial success in the thousands of percent.
What I’m saying Ted (myself) here again why you will be reading about the super rich (this nation’s oligarchs). Let’s look at the meaning of oligarchy, a structure in which power rests with a small number of people. These people might be distinguished by nobility, wealth, family ties, education, corporate, religious or military control, all these powerfully rich entities can be distinguished as the oligarchs.
Let me just say this, I am not against or jealous, nor envious of these powerfully rich people, super rich, or their oligarch status. This is what I truly believe, most of us if we were given ten billion dollars we would give most of that money away. I’ve watch and read a lot about these oligarchs for many years on t.v., youtube, and magazines and they don’t look happy.
First of all they probably spend more money in a week for security than most us make in a year. They have no privacy and most of them don’t have peace of mind. They are always looking over their shoulders thinking someone is trying to rip them off. Most of these oligarchs are always trying figure out how I can make this deal and continue to make more money. It’s probably like filling a empty hole that never ever seems to overflow. The good book says what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul. In the words of Snoop Dogg I’ve got my mind on my money and my money on my mind.
Who are this oligarchs that reside within our borders?? We’ve all heard of the Russian oligarchs.
One of our American oligarch according Anne Applebaum a Washington Post columnist said Donald Trump “an oligarch in Russian style— a rich man who aspires to combine business with politics and has an entirely cynical and instrumental attitude toward both. Let me give you two more just for the fun of it.
The Koch Brothers Charles and David net worth combine is over 90 billion. They have $50,000 plate dinners for presidential candidates and give millions to their favorite politicians. The Koch Brothers have a corporation called Koch Industries, Inc.
In the words of Steve Forbes, Editor-In-Chief of Forbes magazine, the number of global billionaires would be 20,000 times the 2.043 listed in this issue. ‘If the government especially the U.S., had sensible monetary, fiscal and regulatory policies over the past forty years’ From the article “Why Don’t We Have More Billionaires”? I can give you a dozen answers but one will do capitalism is about competition. I going to take you out before you take me out simple as that. This is the making of the oligarchs in America combine business, government, and religion. This is the many faces of capitalism, next corporate oligarchs you don’t know what you don’t know.
