The ME Generation
I would like to bring to the attention of your readers the new generation of Billionaires. If you haven't noticed lately, a few of them have come into public view and I hope you are paying attention. This is a new Breed of The Wealthy. They are young, goal oriented, and seem to view conscience, morality, and ethics as weaknesses.
The New Breed of Billionaires are young. It seems they were born into the seventies and eighties. This was a period of change in our society and the change seems to have helped form their personalities and ambitions. They were molded by science fiction, dysfunctional families, lack of community cohesiveness, the ME generation, drug enhancement, consumption, and technology. They are a product of our society at it's worst.
The New Breed of Billionaires have formed a group, a loyal group with a goal, it seems to me World Domination and Consumption. I would like to be able to say at this point that this new direction is for the benefit of mankind, but unfortunately it seems to be for the destruction of mankind. From my own personal viewpoint, it seems to be a game, a game to see who will have the most toys before they die. You may ask me," Why do you believe this?". The new generation has more wealth than could be used in many lifetimes, yet they continue to rape and harvest the world of it's labor force and natural resources. Ask yourself, "WHY?" Why do they want a one world government? Why do they want to continue to make enormous profits? What IS the point?
I think the point is, because they can.
What would you think of being governed by a group of people, who don't have a collective conscience, collective religious beliefs, collective compassion for human suffering, a collective idea of the impact of their actions on the human race, and even more importantly, collective indifference?
It is eye opening, to hear the United States of America CEOs and their respective companies are viewing the world as an open playground. American consumers are being laid to waste, because there is globally, a world of ninety something percent of unharvested consumers and workers. This is a huge marketplace for our CEOs to plunder.
The CEOs and their respective corporations are moving on, leaving America, the country that gave birth to their wealth, a third world country. They seem to be smug, untouchable, and unconsciencable. They seem to be playing the game to win.
I only see one flaw in their plan, human nature. When people are oppressed through lack of food and housing, they become unstable toward the group who is oppressing them. Many a dictator or Royal Family have had to come to terms with revolution. They have failed to see the human nature side of survival. They have miscalculated the power of the down-trodden. They have lost all of their wealth and power to find themselves evicted from the society they planned to dominate. This is history, and could also be the future.
So our New Royals, who refer to themselves as WE, need to look beyond the comfort of their existences and really take a look at what their actions are accruing in human suffering. Human Suffering will put an early end to their game of toys. Not only will the HUMAN NATURE OF SURVIVAL in the United States of America pull together it's citizens,as we are seeing come to pass, but other countries will also go into the HUMAN NATURE OF SURVIVAL mode, and touch the untouchable, remove the smugness, and teach a harsh lesson in morality and ethics. It will be an eye-opening experience for the Royal WE when they are not just slapped on the hand by our Congress, but are confronted by people from other countries, who still believe in an eye for an eye, and exact such punishment.
