After decades of bleeding wealth from the middle class and channeling it to a few wealthy Corporatists, we have reached the breaking point. Workers have no disposable income left. Products and services are going unpurchased. Rental homes and commercial space is being abandoned. The leeches have sucked the hosts they need to survive dry.
Wealth has no value when it is held by a few. In a social structure where there are no jobs for people, dreams vanish in the dust of empty wallets. When field workers can’t live on poverty wages, they don’t raise crops. When people can’t afford housing prices, the value of property collapses and cash flows dry up.
A healthy economy can’t afford to pay financial robber barons to broker deals, when the essentials of family existence are already beyond grasp of workers and small, community businesses.
It’s time that property and wealth are redistributed to the working class. If you have more than you can personally maintain and spend, you have more than you need. There are too many of our people with nothing or worse.
