from Washington’s Blog:
This fact occurs simultaneously while 30,000 children die daily from preventable poverty, despite since 1969 these 1% and above wealth and political “leaders” of so-called “developed” and “former” colonial powers have promised to “end poverty once and for all, forever.” The total poverty deaths since just 1995 are ~400 million; more than all wars and violent deaths in recorded human history.
Please take a moment to experience that death from poverty is almost always gruesomely slow and painful, both for the victim and all who love them.
- Please also note that “inhumane acts intentionally causing great suffering or serious bodily injury” is the legal definition of “Crimes against humanity.” Given several world summits for presidents, prime ministers, and royalty that all global poverty can be ended with provable and simple methods, and for less than 1% of developed nations’ income (appropriately less than 1% of profits extracted from areas suffering poverty during colonialism), and that the end of poverty has been promised at the highest levels of government multiple times only to be reneged, current policies that allow ongoing poverty-deaths are intentional and therefore criminal.
For Americans still zombiefied to “believe” in America, please embrace the reality that 40% of US children live at least one year of their lives in under-measured poverty, while oligarchs most responsible literally laugh in grandiose glee of the poverty they euphemise as “income inequality.” Please absorb this 1-minute reality check:
To visualize this pyramid of wealth inequality/poverty, imagine a room of 100 people with a total of 100 M&Ms to be divided among them. This is the approximate wealth breakdown reported by Bank Suisse:
