America the beloved is almost lost…. by Mena7

The USA is becoming a feudal country or a Latin American country with a small super wealthy class, a small middle class and a large poor class.

40% of the American people make less then $20,000 a year.

50 million USA people are poor.

The Forbes 400 richest American have a net worth of $1.7 trillion.

10% of the rich in the USA take 80% of the USA wealth every year.

The reason for the inequality in the USA is the rich class and corporations control of the political system. American business and corporations were advised by Wall Street banks to send USA jobs oversea. 42 million good paying USA jobs were sent to China, India and other places.

Offshoring of good paying job create poverty. Corporations double and quadruple their profits by sending good paying job in low wage countries. Offshoring of jobs transformed rich businessmen, corporate shareholders and CEOs into super rich people.

The solution to the underclass working poor is for the USA government to subsidize the salary of the working poor. If a worker make less then $25,000 a year the USA government should send him a monthly check to boost her low salary to $25,000. There was a time the Saudi and Kuwaiti government use to send money to their citizen to support their lifestyle just because they were Arab citizen of the country.

  1. There is also the aspect of the IT revolution and mechanization.

    I remember when I was a kid there was this notion propagated about; that in the future (beyond 2000), all drudgery would have been erased from the face of the earth (the moderrn developed west with America at the front): you will not need to do the tedious activities like slicing your morning bread for example. No more boring, unedifying jobs like puting up parts of a car in the assembly line…and so forth.

    The pitch for this futuristic lazy self-indulgence was that humans would have more time for things that actually interest them (never mind the fact that most normal adults would enjoy working if treated with respect and paid a living pay) like “culture”, travel and such like. As Mena 7 has highlighted here this was just a joke. A huge fraud to erase the worker/union/cost-centre problem of the capitalist class.

    Today from factories needing a handful (compared to hundreds in the 50s), the trend is on to services like supermarkets where cashiers are really “unecessary” and banks too. Almost all jobs can be “de-skilled” or rendered unecessary except perhaps the protection (cops/soldiers etc) and care (doctors/nurses)-for now?

    So-apart from the west sending jobs to india/china/bangladesh (how does a pair of jeans cost $7? Because somebody in asia is a slave), the robots are taking over too.
    Marxists would say capitalism has reached its paradox.

    As Mena 7 says-the solution then is for the capitalists to be taxed to “subsidize” the rest of the people. But they call this “socialism” which is theft/dirty-never mind the the Fed rescue of banks “too Big to Fail”. Hypocrisy and capitalism are birds of a feather.

    A common sense wo/man would say balance and justice is life. This system is an evil, death-worship brandished as “freedom” and many still believe in it because of the carrot dangled on their faces by relentless corporate media that happiness and success is being a killer and the hope that one day, they too will join the killers.

    This is Babylon. Pure evil.
