Who Can’t Be Criticized?

In America it is a taboo to criticize rich people. We are encouraged to adore the rich and it is acceptable for us to be envious of them. It is acceptable for us to want to be like them. But it is a taboo to dislike them. It is an even greater taboo to dislike them because of their wealth.

The reason it is a taboo to criticize the wealthy is because it is money which rules our power structure and those who are rich are the stewards of this system.

The truth is is if someone has accumulated vast amounts of wealth they had to commit crimes in order to get that money and they mistreated people in the process of getting that money.

Accumulating vast amounts of wealth is the product of a spiritual imbalance. The government has a right to tax very heavily the assets of people who are ultra wealthy and use those assets to help strengthen the community through financing things like public parks and public transportation.

In America we are taught to think in terms of race, this distracts us from the oppression of the working class by the rich. Not only are the working classes not given adequate pay. The working classes also resort to prostitution and pornography where they become the exploited play-things of the wealthy.

    China is even more extreme on that issue right now. Money IS God. But this is changing. People cannot accept this as a meaning to life for very long. At some point even the most average person has to wonder if life is really worth living for money.

    I really enjoy your posts, BrotherCatfish, and I feel a genuine respect for your thoughts.

    But I disagree with what you wrote. The rich are constantly bashed and demonized. I see it all the time, not just by individuals, but also in the media. (I’m not saying they don’t deserve it. Maybe they do.)

    I think a lot of people seek money because they don’t want to live in poverty; they believe that by acquiring wealth, they can buy peace and leisure time and not have to work two jobs just to survive. People associate money with security and stability. So it’s not necessarily that they are seeking fancy clothes or cars, a lot of people just want that elusive sense of security in a chaotic, insecure world.
