“We should do away with the absolutely specious notion that everybody has to earn a living. It is a fact today that one in ten thousand of us can make a technological breakthrough capable of supporting all the rest. The youth of today are absolutely right in recognizing this nonsense of earning a living. We keep inventing jobs because of this false idea that everybody has to be employed at some kind of drudgery because, according to Malthusian-Darwinian theory he must justify his right to exist. So we have inspectors of inspectors and people making instruments for inspectors to inspect inspectors. The true business of people should be to go back to school and think about whatever it was they were thinking about before somebody came along and told them they had to earn a living.” -R Buckminster Fuller
Government hasn’t worked for the little people since Jimmy Carter, roughly 36 years, and it ain’t going to work in the future for them either – YET – these wealthy so called Liberals and Christians have done little to nothing that helps the poor – they all seem fine with keeping a broken government, course they profit large off of the dream to fix it, their money invested in the stock-market they criticize, but we all know it will never be fixed and they will continue to profit. Is it a lie they tell themselves? Only human after all.
So here’s my challenge to all the upper 20% of liberal left, progressives, democrats – whatever you call yourselves these days – and those who call themselves Good Christians, GIVE YOUR MONEY AWAY CHALLENGE #GYMAC.
Make being greedy rich shameful again (#MGRSA? too many acronyms?). See who can give the most away to as many people as possible who can work to live their dream and not go completely broke. Bypass the wealthy bankers and stockholders, invest directly in real live people.
What the giver will receive: the incalculable adoration of most of the human species. Is that not enough?
Spread Joy and call it an Art Project.
Add conditions to the funds if you like, pay people to work at something they love to do, that will benefit others. Mentor a student, sponsor a protégé. Y’all got lawyers/agents to draw up a contracts, right? Be like Christ or Buddha and just GIVE IT AWAY lottery style if you must! You can spread it out, use it as a tax write off, promote yourself as the best human being on the planet. Become a real entrepreneur, a mensch, show the republicans you can do great things for business, the planet AND real people by allowing those who receive the funds to keep their dignity, maybe actually work towards fixing that broken government you’ve been talking about, all at the same time.
Don’t you think it’s time?
Unless, that’s not what you really want? We know keeping the status quo keeps your pockets full. Is that what you’re all about? We wonder…
The Industrial Revolution is Over – Technology has changed everything, it should also change our burdens; so we were told. Time to share the wealth! Move Forward! Onward and Upward as a species. Face it, most of you just got lucky, right time, right place, a little drive.
Regardless of how you got there,
Just Do It! Please, do something good.
Find some hard working people, lost people, desperate people, good people hanging by a thread and reach out, give them a helping hand or a leg up, throw a lottery; luck be a lady, or fund some good idea; get 10% of the profits if it works and then fund more people.
Honestly, what’s $15k/$20k a year to a multi-millionaire or billionaire?
Promote #basicincome, DO SOMETHING instead of always profiting off our misery.
It’s a win win for you anyway you look at it.
don’t be greedy, share it!
at least try
p.s. I don’t mean to be harsh or sarcastic, but people are committing suicide because they see no hope, mostly because of debt; medical, student and otherwise. They no longer have job security, they live in constant fear and anxiety, no way to plan ahead or reach for greater goals. No longer do we see an increase in wages for average people, not even for the cost of living, and the loss of benefits, health care, no holiday pay or vacations wages, even after years of service, why go on? Many people’s greatest hope is winning the lottery that’s what it has come down to – pure luck. It’s understandable to wonder what is the point of going on, or to even bring a child into such a world and it is an even harsher reality when people see crooked bankers bailed out with their labor, and still receiving bonuses, CEOs making 1000 time more than the average worker as their income falls, and of course the endless wars which diminished all of our standard of living, with the shame that the slaughter of innocent people is being done in our name, we have lost our moral compass. If you have the means you really need to start giving back or grant these people final peace and honestly state openly that you are a Malthusian Darwinist – but please do not call yourself a liberal or Christian, that is a horrible trick and a sin to play on another human being.
Here’s The Real Deal Folks
Albeit he’s not giving it all away, but he’s doing a pretty darn good job of reaching out, giving people a needed hand up and following through. He could actually form a coalition that will unite the little people to start getting things down, help each other out, bring back our humanity. I’m wondering if maybe he’ll start putting together and reinvigorating the idea of The John Doe Clubs. Maybe we are looking at the reincarnation of Huey Long. Finger’s crossed he’s one of the good guys.
Become A Random Actor:
p.p.s. Someone asked me how do you get on the Random Actors List?
I say click on the links and that will give you a pretty good idea of what makes a random actor, a real mensch. I don’t have a scientific method set up to analyze it, but I figure at least 50% of your time and wealth is probably a good start. I would also say a hand written letter (typed is okay too) or some token of appreciation, from the people you have helped would become priceless works of art. I personally have a story of a token given to me a long time ago, I’ll share that story here .
p.p.p.s. YES, YES and YES, I was raised in a hard core FDR, JFK, LBJ, Jimmy Carter Democrat environment, but I’ve seen the democratic party become a corporate owned entity conglomerate starting with the Clintons and now Obama. I saw the DNC work to destroy the Greens and cheat Bernie Sanders. This is not the party of FDR, JFK, LBJ or Jimmy Carter any more, those days have been over for decades, you need to face that fact. The little people no longer have a voice anywhere in government. Both parties are controlled by banks and corporations. The only way to even try and restore it is for wealthy liberals to put up the fund that restores the life and dignity of the little guy, the voiceless, the working people again. Your protests will do little to nothing, they have already put you in cages, tapped the phones of activist organizers, made whistle-blowers criminals. How can you not see this? If the wealthy liberals do not do this act I’m afraid then we can only assume they are in on the deal, their own personal profits mean more to them than their fellow citizens. Let’s hope they get on the correct side of history.
Can’t just bitch any more, you have to build.
If you know someone else who should be put on the list, please let me know. Thanks
