How can we end this slavery? What can the people do?
I can't even take off for work to protest!
And if I did protest I'd probably be fired!
It seems the rich always manage to get richer.
The golden rule always seems to apply:
"He who has the gold makes the rules."

But it does create freedom. There are probably multitudes of unhappy billionaires. But the gobshites continue to accumulate wealth and have the leisure to pursue other interest. Rather than spend their days toiling for crumbs.

I always thought that if you pay your employees more they will in turn go out and spend more, invest more and increase the economy. But simply paying CEOs and Corporatist more does little to stimulate the economy because those types tend to acumulate weath but not spread it around. I could be wrong though.
