    Anyone for trickle-down economics? Lick the arses of these 26 billionaires and wait for something to trickle-down!

    Can you imagine how frightened they are? Childhood monopoly transformed into cannibal capitalism. What a nightmare. Who will fall out when the number drops to 23, and then 22. Insatiable want unleashed in a free market neomalthusian snarlathon.

    I used to sing a song the had this refrain; “And we all gotta duck, when the shit hits the fan.” I believe it was called ten kids in a cadillac.

    Economaths using game theory can probably figure out when nobody will own everything.

    The trickle-up process started a long time ago. Even if the 26 richest people decease in number, they will ensure that the proxy dealings and wheelings they conduct confine a greater proportion of the poorest to increasing poverty. The final aim is to make them, once again, appreciate the downward effect of potential charity and curtail others from protesting about real issues.

    This is Extreme level of inequality, but not sure why it is labelled “sickening”. Seems moralistic.

      If you don’t know, then no-one will be able to explain it to you.

        On that basis you could not possibly verify whether the claim has the same meaning as the one intended by the author, let alone defend the claim against objections. The claim is meaningless.

        Not being able to verify the meaning of a claim does not mean it is meaningless, it means it is ambiguous. Like the gestalt figure in which some people see an old lady, others a young one. The verification issue only arises wheen one seeks to defend one interpretation by denying (or sneering at) another, as Culturalanalyst does here with the issue being a moral one.
