    What about 7 billion

    "What about 700 billion?

    What about 7 trillion

    None of which is real money, it's only fiat - which is what the world is in the process of re-learning.

  2. We are dupes in our own lives, hey?

    Although none more so than the world's impoverished, who wouldn't comprehend how these actions, all of them, collectively, help to ensure they have short and cruel lives.

    We, the rich, get over it and move on.

    It doesn't change.

    The "99 per cent" were mocked all over the world for their tiny little protests.

    What a fearful and deluded lot we are. The 99 per cent would rather side with the powerful, under the believe that they're protecting themselves. It's exactly the same as women who side with men, lest they be accused of being a feminist, or black people siding with white fella's, lest they be thought of as inferior.
