How the Wall Street Bail Out Affects America

The government just bailed out Wall Street – You are now poorer!
President Bush said: “without the bail-out, America could "slip into an economic panic", an economic panic created by the elite, to increase their wealth. As the Alpha male predator Bush is demanding unlimited authority to implement a massive financial bailout. The Secretary of the Treasury now becomes an economic dictator, with unlimited power to engineer the economy to plunder Middle America.
You would have $10 billion if America’s wealth were evenly shared.
A well publicized economic report showed Americans how wealthy they would be if the nation‘s wealth were evenly shared. Each man, woman and child would have $10 million dollars.
But, the nation’s wealth is not evenly shared and a tiny handful of families have all the wealth. You have only enough to get by month to month. And, your tiny share is shrinking as the share of the wealthy is expanding.
How did this economic situation develop? How do we change it?
How did our modern economy develop?
Our modern economy has not developed at all. It is a continuation of the basic economy that has been part of the world from the very beginning. The basic way that the ancient economy worked was for brutal people to simply steal things from others. In that way the worst people rose in society to be the wealthiest and to have the most power.
This is called the predator economy because this is the way that animals behave in the wild. An alpha male steals from lesser males. And dominant females keep lesser females in pecking orders. This behavior basically describes our modern economic system. Inside tall office buildings that are made of glass and steel are people that are no better than predatory beasts. Almost every human since Adam and Eve has made a conscious decision to be a predator in the way that beasts are predators.
It is no surprise then that a handful of alpha males have stolen all the wealth of the nation. It is no wonder that dominant females keep other females and their offspring in regimented class systems.
See you at the bank (your local food bank) America!
