We hate the rich in France.
We hate the rich more.
No, I don’t get paid to love or defend the rich, and I’m not a billionaire, I don’t sell lipstick on Youtube, but I’m talking about economics, which I can assure you does not attract cheerleaders!
Following Oxfam’s report, Challenges magazine reported that “544.5 French billionaires are worth billions of euros in total. According to our Challenges ranking published in the summer of 2022, France has more than a hundred billionaires. All rankings of French billionaires here on the Challenges website.
Let’s steal all this money.
“Abolish the billionaires.”
Approximately, based on 68 million people, you will receive a huge, astronomical sum of 8,000 euros for a Frenchman. Or €666 per month for a year.
So what will we do after we’ve all spent our RSA billionaires?
How many years will we last at 8000 euros each.
With our billionaire’s income of $8,000 and an average of 10% inflation and 20% inflation in the grocery department?
Again, the problem is not to hate the rich, even if they are billionaires.
It was important to put these numbers so that taking money from billionaires, even if it is inappropriate, will not make anyone rich.
This is a page.
On the other hand, we can make moral judgments.
In this case, you are in moral denial, but not in economic reality.
The challenge is to control their power to avoid abuses and allow as many people as possible to live the life they want, and preferably a life of comfort and abundance.
In addition, for example, comfort has greatly improved for everyone.
The fight against the rich is a facile social idea of those who have no idea how to improve people’s lives and daily lives and don’t have the guts to tell the truth.
The truth is that we are the sum of our decisions and efforts.
It’s that simple.
Our life is the sum of our decisions and efforts.
Sometimes accidents happen in life. In this situation, the necessary and just solidarity must support those who have just fallen, and this can happen to anyone. Illness, accident, etc.
Finally, a final consideration.
“From each according to his ability, to each according to his need”
“From each according to his ability, to each according to his need” – from each according to his ability, to each according to his need or From each according to his ability, to each according to his need – are also available. In the original sense of the term, it is an expression that summarizes the principles of a socialist or communist society.
This maxim is bewilderingly naive, and you will never be able to base policy on it because it is completely non-objective and has no possible measure.
Indeed, my needs are as subjective as my means!
I always think that the guy next door must work harder than me or pay more taxes than me. I never have a lot of money. If you put the question to a Norman, surely you are talking only to the poorest of the poor, and in the Caux country it is, but in the Ouche country (where I am) even so. worse! We are even poorer than all the poor. So we have no way. We have no financiers here! We only save me first!
As for our needs, they are enormous. I need a dacha…sorry, a country house to feel better, I need a nice car to feel like I’ve arrived, a chalet in Megève to calm down and clear my head in the winter. I need a big swimming pool, I need a private jet, I need the biggest Tesla model with hair-raising performance (if I’ve tried it, it’s incredible that a friend bought it on the spot). Try it and you will need it too. I need the latest PS4 or 5, and I’m talking about a gaming console, not a Socialist Party. I need the latest flat screen and a new i-phone. Yes yes. They all need this item. All.
Good feelings never make good policy!
Start by de-advertising the stars of the left and you will end up de-advertising a large number of billionaires! Both unnecessary consumption and pollution and you will save the planet and raw materials!
Being on the left is not throwing up the rich.
To be on the left is to understand how the “rich” have taken over the wealth of the poor.
The answer is simple.
By selling them things they don’t need, which they buy with money they don’t have and which the banks will lend them, will forever alienate the poor and force them to sell their labor.
Eliminate advertising, then we can start talking about equality, the distribution of wealth or the environment.
