Oxfam, an international organization with the aim of curtailing global poverty, has just issued a new report which states that the world’s richest 1% will own more than the rest of the world combined by 2016.
Oxfam bases its data on the annual Credit Suisse Global Wealth datebook which takes into consideration both financial and non-financial assests, so in reality the top 1% will own more land, money, resources, and precious metals than the rest of the world does collectively.
The same organization made headlines last year when they reported that the 85 richest billionaires owned more than the poorest 50% of the world’s population combined.
Wealth Gap Built into the System
The World Economic Forum met last week with the purported goal of stymieing economic crisis and easing the wealth gap. This gathering of the world’s nation states is looked at by most people as a serious attempt at solving financial disparity.
However, these heads of state, acting on behalf of the corporatocracy, further exacerbate the problems by interfering with their aid projects that merely create more debt. Whether it is the World Economic Forum, the UN, the IMF, the World Bank, or any other for-profit institution, their poverty relief programs exist to create further dependency. Don’t take my word for it. The front page of the World Economic Forum’s home page asserts that we need institutions to rescue us (ie. the same institutions that created this mess).
For you see, the system itself has a built in wealth gap mechanism that no one on the world’s stage discusses. When a poor individual, driven by lack of resources, takes out a loan, he almost inevitably must pay it back with interest. When a rich individual has a hoard of money sitting in a checking account, he makes extra money from interest just by having extra money.
The plutocrats have established the rules so that the poor become poorer and the rich become richer. This reverse Robin Hood has eroded the middle class, made potholes out of once prosperous nations, and left 50 million Americans on social welfare programs.

Malthus, Social Darwinism, & Agenda 21
Reverend Thomas Robert Malthus wrote in An Essay on the Principle of Population, in 1798, the ideological torch that would later be carried by John Meynard Keynes and other notorious anti-humanists.
Poverty, war, famine, disease, and premature death were seen as “positive checks” by Malthus who believed the root of social entropy was overpopulation. Therefore, he did not agree with charity as it rewarded and encouraged the poor to continue reproducing. He also expounded on “preventative checks” such as abstinence and banning marriage for low income families. Had abortion been available, he would have supported it.
Charles Darwin’s evolution theory was inspired by Malthusianism. Eventually, Malthusians were inspired by Darwin’s work and proposed the concept of Social Darwinism. Both schools of thought were foundational for the Eugenics movement.
Neo-Malthusianism has largely been revived by the Club of Rome’s book entitled The Limits to Growth (1972) and Al Gore’s film An Inconvenient Truth (2006) and the subsequent global warming movement. Humans are the problem, the enemy, the virus, and need to be taxed, sterilized, and finally eradicated from the planet. This has been used to champion and fund programs like Agenda 21 and Bill H. Gates Sr.’s Planned Parenthood. Conservative estimates say Planned Parenthood has aborted over 6.6 million babies since 1970. Planned Parenthood has been caught performing post-birth abortions, also known as infanticide, and advocates for women’s right to choose to kill her child up to several years after birth.
The 99% Has More Power than All the World’s Billionaires
Baneful misanthropes who prevaricate the populace with guile and premeditated misdeeds are not the source of man’s woes, nor are the tyrannical institutions preying on the hearts, minds, and wallets of the masses. If man wishes to remove his shackles he must first realize they are only psychological shackles and that he is the only possessor of the key. That key is cast in the fires of intuitive discernment and resides deep within the cavernous hollows of his soul where he dares not look.
