What we need is a "21st Century Full Employment Act for Peace and Prosperity" which would make it a mandatory requirement that the president and Congress attain and maintain full employment.

When wealth creates poverty.

Hoarding the wealth created by the working class:

http://www.forbes.com/billionaires/

The wealth they hoard amongst such massive poverty across the world is not the end of their criminality... it is their ownership and control of the mines, mills and factories where workers collectively labor to continue producing this wealth that is the real crime.

The crime is capitalism.


The criminals are the parasitical Wall Street capitalist coupon clippers who hoard this tremendous wealth they derive from exploiting labor and raping Mother Nature--- the only two sources of wealth.

Minnesota Democrats have declared war on those who hoard junk when we should be declaring war on those Minnesota millionaires and billionaires who hoard wealth.

A look at the companies listed on the various stock exchanges gives us a better understanding of who owns the wealth created by the working class but the very fact that a political and economic system of capitalism which enables the few to hoard such massive wealth while so many people who create this wealth live in such poverty without even the access to the very necessities of life as articulated in the United Nations' Universal Declaration of Human Rights is what we need to be considering: http://unudhr.blogspot.com/

Justice requires these billionaires should be behind bars for grand theft but most people would be satisfied just to see them relieved of their wealth and provided with a job working alongside those they have been exploiting daily with their wealth and all future wealth being used to improve the lives and livelihoods for the rest of the people in the world.

There simply is no excuse for the continued toleration of this kind of obscene and insane hoarding of so much wealth, which, ironically--- and as this rotten capitalist system works--- creates so much poverty.

Something to think about:

These billionaires are so wealthy BECAUSE so many people are so poor.

Question:

What is the definition of "insanity?"

Answer:

Doing something over and over expecting different results
-Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein presented the solution to this "insanity" over 60 years ago in his essay--- Why Socialism?
