The Embarrassment of Riches | The Smirking Chimp

The game is rigged and the room at the top is getting smaller. 90% of that 1% isn’t made up of innovators or genius hard workers it’s made up of inherited wealth handed down through generations. Whose only interest is to maintain it. If for a few years the rest of us believe for a moment we are going up in the world it was to the 1%’s benefit. That however, sure isn’t the case currently and the Global Pandemic is revealing the cracks and inequality once again. While Climate Change is revealing the reality that we are all on this one planet.  Wealth won’t save the hell faced living with a 3 degree plus rise in temperature and the changes that will come with it.

The rich are clearly embarrassed by their riches, so much so that they are going to great lengths to keep their transactions a secret. Now, can we embarrass them even more so that they pay what is necessary to save the planet?
