The case for expropriation: Billionaires’ wealth surged 60 percent in first year of pandemic

“COVID-19 brought terrible suffering, economic pain, geopolitical tension—and the greatest acceleration of wealth in human history,” Forbes writes.

{Amid a raging pandemic, every country in Europe and the Americas has refused to shut down nonessential production, claiming the cost would be too high. This policy, which has led to the deaths of over three million people, has the deliberate aim of expanding the wealth of the financial oligarchy.}

Virtually, sanctions were applied to sacrifice lives for ruling class profits. If you lost a family member to this systemic blunder, you now have a virtual window into what people of other countries are going through who refuse to bow to westernized "civilization". Their deaths now have a gross profit margin of $1.7 million you'll never get a part of.

{As Karl Marx noted more than 150 years ago in Capital, it is a basic law of capitalism that “Accumulation of wealth at one pole is, therefore, at the same time accumulation of misery, agony of toil slavery, ignorance, brutality, mental degradation, at the opposite pole.”}
