Yes, the rich live in a different world. And no, information won’t change them. But a revolution will. Revolutions build slowly over a long time. Then, suddenly, a critical mass, a flash point, something totally unexpected ignites the ticking bomb.
It happened recently in a remote Tunisian village. Mohamed Bouazizi, a 26-year-old college graduate, unable to pay bribes, set himself on fire to protest police confiscation of his unlicensed vegetable cart. That triggered a revolution. And his death rapidly led to the collapse of a 24-year dictatorship.
Today we have four hot time bombs, tick-ticking, soon to make history; any one can easily accelerate the revolution that’s already killing Wall Street from within.
I'll list them but I urge you to go to Market Watch and read the descriptions in full:
- Wealth gap: Super-Rich vs class wars, death of democracy
- Wall Street’s doomsday capitalism vs rule by anarchy
- Pentagon’s perpetual war machine vs America’s budget time bomb
- Global population explosion vs resources, jobs, better lifestyles
