The world has changed, people are happy and distracted by materialism, they live happily being in debt to the rich with nice cars, houses, and fancy degrees. But let's be real, thats only first world countries where the rich have rights as much as poor people do. They are allowed to be rich and not have anyone bother them.
What would it accomplish? Poor people are poor because of their own deficiencies in skill, intelligence, talent, and ambition. Overthrowing the current social model won't make them better people. In a few years, the cream will rise to the top again, and the poor will still be poor.
Stop clinging to the myth that poor are just as capable and have just as much potential as anyone else. Everyone is not created equal. Some people will always have skills, talents, and attributes that make them superior to most. Society will always value these people, and they will always accumulate wealth as a result. Its biology, not sociology.
Well I think they've successfully made it so that the poor people are fed and too fat to revolt. reducing their effective numbers tremendously. the agile and swift leaders of business would overtake their servile swinelings. The owners own the means of true energy production and horde it meanwhile keeping the poor on just enough energy to survive but to tired to do anything like revolt.
>>928062 I came from a shit school/area and used my resources to become better while my old friends are still being retarded and have no goals. You just need to grow up and take some responsibility for yourself. Settling for a B is stupid when you could have easily gotten an A.
Lots of people have a poor problem (and I feel bad for pregnant teenagers and morons who didn't get into a trade/go to college), but the people who work at full time for $10+ an hour are usually overspending not harmed by the rich.
>Friend constantly complaining that she can't get ahead in life >Smokes a pack of cigarettes a day >She's a single mother to a complete dead beat >Uses credit to buy the newest iphone every year. >Financed a $1400 Macbook >Financed a brand new car >Is a nurse working 70 hours a week >Got fired from her last two jobs because she couldn't find a baby sitter to watch her tazmanian devil son and all of the other sitters refuse to watch him because he's borderline dangerous for 6 year old >Constantly saying shit about how capitalism doesn't work and hard working people like her are trapped in debt. >Victim mentality gets so bad that I have to stop hanging out with her.
I literally know a dozen different people like this and the story barely changes. This is why the I won't even engage with the basic income and "economic justice" debate. It's nothing but consumer debt masquerading as class warfare.
As long as a wealth gradient exists, and the possibility to advance and become rich exists, no such revolution will occur, since people perceive freedom, and a chance at equity.
When the divide and barriers get big enough the people will revolt. It has happened many times in the past.
I think if our current predicament in the USA were to get much worse, we could have a potential revolt, but thankfully Democrats will control Washington for at least the next decade and beat the fucking fatcats down.
> Making $250k+ a year > HOW DARE YOU TAX ME AND GIVE MY MONEY TO PEOPLE WHO HAVENT "EARNED" IT > Sits in an air conditioned office
Every fucking person should have to go through poverty for a fucking month, so they know just what it is like.

Assuming you absolutely need education to get rich
