  •  THhat means the greediest, wealthiest people (8+ / 0-)

    will need to remain the richest and most powerful . . . with less money.

    My 6 year-old asked if that meant we had to go to war.

      •  I told him we fight back by knowing who these (8+ / 0-)

        mean, greedy people are, then telling them why we will give them no more of our money and backing that up with action . . . that we then tell our friends and neighbors about.

        I told him the richest people want a war, because their money and ownership rights can buy even the loyalties of people who are our friends.  So, we need to fight without guns, whenever possible - we each need to have a conscience.

        He does not deserve to grow into a world that will hurt him for simply not being born into a rich family, or that will hurt all human existence because the richest make their money by not caring about how their money leads to environmental disaster.

        There is strife akin to what I described to him the world over today, but he's never experienced it first-hand.  I don't want him to live a life of constant struggle for survival because 1% of the population has no collective soul.

          I like very much that you speak to him with your adult voice about adult topics. It's his future for which we will continue to fight the greed of the 1-2%.
