How does this makes you feel?
The wealthiest 1 percent of the world's population now owns more than half of the world's wealth. There's a high probability that you will be in debt and work your whole life for a low salary until the day you die. And there's a high probability that your kids and kids of their kids will live the same.
Crushing poverty and brutal oppression is the eventual and obvious end of capitalism unless governments start fighting for the people.
But, governments are being co-opted by billionaires to pass legislation tilting the balance even more in favor of the ultra-wealthy
Personally, I'm just stacking my chips and trying to set up a "family UBI program" for any descendants I have so they can at least eat and be sheltered somewhat from what's to come. Still, even a fund of a couple of million is a drop in the bucket and even with good safeguards, all it takes is one bad apple to co-opt the system.
Sad reality, welcome to the prison planet.

Money is amazing and its a good tool for accessing an amazing life.
The problem is the richest people in the world don't care about their lives. They just desperately scrape a pile of money, property, gold and stuff until they die. They will never be satisfied. They will never be happy. They will never have enough.
The will compromise everything to get more money. Especially their family life suffers. They create fucked up trust fund babies who hate their parents because they were never loved. The trust fund babies become people who live theier lives to buy things, get high and then die alone and miserable.
All rich people are in a panic about others trying to take their money. They can trust no one and if they do trust others they get money stolen and they're left heartbroken.
Rich people spend half of their life in court suing people and getting sued.
Do I want money? Yes. Am I jealous of people like Bezos? Nope. That's a shit life too.
My life is like a good meal at a good restaurant. People like bezos have to go to the same buffet every night and eat the whole fucking thing. Fuck that
