    I immediately liked this guy! Tax the rich! 1981 ronald Reagan lowers tax rate for the rich from 30% to 9% while my income level rate went from 14% to 30%! Trickle down is complete BS!

    Utopia for realists is an incredible read…proof positive that the rich are indeed our parasite class; handed everything at the earners expense

    even in the book Lord of the flies, it takes them several months to get to the point of violence, and they only do at all because they see wreckage of a fighter pilot from the war and they get extremely paranoid about a monster coming. everyone needs to reread that book lmao.

    People can be basically good but they need to share the experience and understanding of living under or with problems, in order to work with others to fix them.
    Meanwhile, the rich and powerful are so physically detached from the real world of the 99%, that it literally diminishes their empathy and basic human decency; they literally CAN’T and WON’T fix what doesn’t affect them eventhough, they are the only people who can.

    In conclusion, we need to help these poor super rich and powerful, by taking away their money and power so as to cure them of their sociopathy.

    Why was the ‘real’ shipwreck experience different to Lord of the Flies? Because no religion (even pig-worship) was involved. Religious (i.e. paranormal) belief has always been the cause of most human strife.

  • Dejay Rezme 5 months ago

    Yeah I agree. But humanity is kind of “infected” by parasites. Or possessed by idiotic ideology. The parasites have absolutely won by making people believe they are just normal. And now they are dominating our society and steering us towards extinction.
    It’s not really “good and evil” but the weak broken inhuman people who are leading us towards our doom.

    I haven’t lost any faith in humanity, I have lost it in the capitalist/socialist bubble which near all humanity is enthralled to. They are both authoritarian systems which let the arseholes take over.

    The biggest tragedy of our time is going to be the sterilization and mutilation of the next few generations…in the name of inclusivity and being ones “authentic self”. 💔💔💔

    So to sum up the 400-page treatise:
    1. Most people are mostly decent;
    2. Most people are pretty dense.
    3. It’s complicated.
