Re: Brain Structure Drives The Consequent Effects Of Economic Inequality

Thank you Doctor A for clarifying why past activist rules of engagement regarding economic inequality with the 1% are impotent at best. Your articulation and clarity as to the mechanisms holding the 99% in bondage is refreshing to see. I too have similar thoughts as to why my activism is not working...

Re: FirstRateCrowd's EIRA

Elizabeth Warren"s plan to tax the rich may be unconstitutional because only certain types of taxes can be levied and her plan does not meet the constitutional criteria. No matter how much I like the idea, it may never get out of the starting gate. Jewish World Review Elizabeth Warren's popular plan...

Re: Brain Structure Drives The Consequent Effects Of Economic Inequality

I wish to point out a profound aspect regarding one's thoughts on the formation of economic inequality. The speed at which the subconscious processes information compared to the conscious mind is dramatic. Whereas mental process at the conscious level operate in the realm of seconds, the subconsciou...

Re: New Age Slavery

Give me a break! Nobel Prize winner Robert Schiller says Senator Warrens Wealth Tax probably will not work and proposes a plan that would kick in 10 years into the future should inequality "become catastrophic." Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren has just proposed a wealth tax on Americans worth...

Re: Brain Structure Drives The Consequent Effects Of Economic Inequality

From my undergraduate days in college I learned we are only aware of 5% of our brain activity and the other 95% is subconscious. Economic inequality works the same way; neuroscience research indicates most of our thoughts on the matter have been preordained by the unconscious portion of our brains a...

Re: Don't be fooled by the wealthy's economic research deception

Growing economic inequality is a significant factor killing the Social Security program. Because the rich are exempt from paying into the system after an income cap of $132,900 (in 2019), the burden to maintain the system falls onto the shoulders of those who are poorer. As noted in the previous pos...

Re: The Community Business Venture (A GENERAL OVERVIEW DISCUSSION)

From my previous post, I have have decided to add food insecurity (increased) to my list of the detrimental effects of income and economic inequality. Here is the updated list. Seems everything in the world I do not like is related to these concepts. Wars (increased) Terrorism (increased) Life expec...

Re: FirstRateCrowd's EIRA

I would like to focus on climate change as a form of homicide perpetuated by the rich upon the poor. It is one of the elite's weapons to commit murder. Yes, murder! It may be a slow form of murder, but so can be poisonings, knifings, or torture, some of which can make an individual suffer prolonged ...

Re: Pitchforks And Torches Will No Longer Be Able To Stop The 1%

Talk about money influencing politics; people regardless of political party are hampered from running for office unless they are wealthy. Economic inequality once again rears its ugly head to suppress the less fortunate. It subjugates the poor and financially disadvantaged by not allowing them a rea...
