The One Percent



El video:

This 80-minute documentary focuses on the growing "wealth gap" in America, as seen through the eyes of filmmaker Jamie Johnson, a 27-year-old heir to the Johnson & Johnson pharmaceutical fortune. Johnson, who cut his film teeth at NYU and made the Emmy®-nominated 2003 HBO documentary Born Rich, here sets his sights on exploring the political, moral and emotional rationale that enables a tiny percentage of Americans - the one percent - to control nearly half the wealth of the entire United States. The film Includes interviews with Nicole Buffett, Bill Gates Sr., Adnan Khashoggi, Milton Friedman, Robert Reich, Ralph Nader and other luminaries. http://www.theonepercentdocume...

"I'm not advocating socialism", says Jamie, while suggesting that the most wealthy could pay more taxes to help support the poorest. Brilliant! Not quite sure what I'm supposed to have learnt from watching this documentary though.

These "1 Percent are not crooks", they are just people that understood AMERICA is a CAPITALIST nation and took advantage of that just like the rest of the population was supposed to as well. The people who need to be locked up are the general public for being to stupid to realize that they cannot live a socialist life in a capitalist country, its too expensive, they expect the government to take care of them, for someone to spoon feed them. It doesn't matter if you are a blue or white collar worker, that doesn't prevent you from buying stocks, investing in property or businesses. Wake the fuck up idiots

I love the idea of living in a free market. Who knows, maybe one day i'll be sitting in class, most likely daydreaming as usual, and i'll come up with a great idea for an app. I'll spend maybe 3 hours coding this simple game, and i'll sell it to the public for $0.99, and before you know, 50 million people would have downloaded my game in a month. Yes, even though i set myself up for life in a matter of hours, i would have provided 50 million people with maybe an hour of entertainment. a portion of your mere $0.99 is now mine, while an hour entertainment is all yours. If i can't take away a portion of your hour of entertainment, then you can't take away my portion on your $0.99. The moral of my fictional story is: don't get butthurt over my luck. attempt to create your own.

Quit worrying about the rich and their wealth. Worry not about the wealth gap. Worry only about how to improve the lot of the rest of the population. Here are some things that can be done. 1) School choice/voucher system. Let people choose their child's school so that the child gets a better education. 2) Energy independence. We should stop paying money to countries that are hostile to us and get our energy from those countries, including the US, that are proper functioning democracies with good human rights records. 3) Welfare reform. Stop paying people to not work. Stop paying people to have babies out of wedlock. Stop taking responsibility away from people so that they become dependent on the government i.e. the taxpayer. 4) Taxation reform. Throw out the entire tax code. Institute a flat rate tax system so that everyone pays the same percentage of their income in taxes. This is equal, and fair. This would eliminate the favouritism that the elites enjoy from favourable treatment by politicians in return for campaign contributions. 5) Eliminate the minimum wage. People would therefore be able to get jobs at their fair market rates instead of being unemployed, on welfare, and possibly getting into mischief and criminal activities. On the job training would give people the skills for better paying work that the educational system failed to provide. There are many more things that can be done to be sure that I will have to add to the list later.
