    Very insightful in regard to manipulating people & income in order to pay less taxes. True, it’s up to us only to take this country back & set it straight.

    yeah I kind of get what he talkin about but I don’t really think the majority of wealthy people are doing bad things it’s just a few that’s doing bad things or doing stuff so bad that it’s making all of them look badit’s kind of like a few of the 1-percenters doing stuff that’s so bad that get on the news that is throwing dirt on the other one percenters that’s doing good and not doing anything bad 💯😓😓😓😓😓

    To remove their power, the answer is simple…Don’t consume or buy goods unnecessarily. Raise your kids “to be self contained” and “giving respect to all the living things and nature”. More importantly everyone must understand that “Good or Bad won’t come from outside or caused by others”

    All the billionaires need to pay heavily for us allowing them to exist, if they don’t it will end badly for them !

    I dont think taxing billionaires is gonna change anything. Just tax all the wealth Transfers/Inheritance to 50%. No One needs to hoard more and has no reason to anymore. Even if one hoards good for him because he will pay when he leaves the earth.

    Sounds like people don’t want everyone to get rich, they just want everyone to equally poor. The statement “loss of power” when it applies to self-made billionaires like Gates, Zuckerberg or Musk reeks of negativity and jealousy. The only advantage they were born with is immense intelligence. All of them are really hardworking, and they deserve the success they have. What they are doing with the money they earn is also upto them. The fact that people like Bill Gates are trying so hard to give back is something that should be looked at positively. Thinking about free/subsidized education and opportunities vs curbing individual progress because it’s too much are two different schools of thought. It is sad that people feel so hopeless that they fail to see how much struggle goes into earning that money from absolutely nothing.

    “I’ll keep my billionaire friends.” That’s what happens when millionaires work for billionaires.

    My solution would be to increase taxes on the 100 corporations that are responsible for 71% of all carbon emissions until they reduce their carbon footprint and use that money to redistribute wealth to close the gap in the separation of wealth. Then remove tax loopholes like those in Ireland and investigate tax free offshore accounts and fine the corporations and people using those tax havens.

    It all comes down to sacrificing the power to everyone equally and that’s something that seems to me no one on top is willing to do.
