    We seem to have accepted who ever gets there first owns it all.  The raw materials of Our planet need to be made available to all humans.  We The People.  Not My Corporation.
    Capital investment is a shibboleth for greed and mayhem.
    The same workers who created the industrial revolution created automation and product design and robots and capital investment.  They drove on the roads I helped pay for, drank the water I helped pay to clean, lived safely because my father fought for them, printed ideas on someone elses machines and paper etc.  They don't deserve 93% of my labor or this planets resources.
    Please don't fall for their misdirection and distortions.

    What percentage we deserve is up for negotiation, but let's not start by saying the independent, inventors of things did it by themselves.  

    We All stand on the shoulders of those who came before us.  And the unborn of our planet deserve a chance to create and advance  civilization w/o the concept that they don't deserve a first class education so they too can do great things for future generations.

    How? Instead of focusing on distractions, focus on who is causing and benefiting from the darkness.  Focus on how to shine the spotlight on the few dozen sociopath billionaires like the Koch's, Simmons', Peterson's, Walton's, de Vos' etc.  

    Instead of reacting to the fires they start w/their billions, focus on them personally.  Who are they talking too? Where are they today?  Why do the Koch's have over four hundred 'small businesses.
    How can Linda and Pete Peterson ... Paul Blumenthal reports...
    "According to a review of tax documents from 2007 through 2011, Peterson has personally contributed at least $458 million to the Peter G. Peterson Foundation to cast Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and government spending as in a state of crisis, in desperate need of dramatic cuts. "
    That's the real problem...spending half a billion dollars by one man to turn us into wage slaves and the Koch family has contributed even more and that's only two families.
    It's not by accident or serendipity we are under siege.
