How Can The World's Citizens Stand Up To Earth's Billionaire Overloards? Bernie? [View all]

Being part of Bernie's Campaign, I started to have a dream / idea. My idea began to take shape.

Imagine the people of the planet demanding our billionaire overlords play by the same rules we play by. Our country is ran by rich people who basically corrupt elections with their super pacs. They own the media which controls the message, and control literal brainwashing of the population with propaganda and outright lies.

Or media rarely mentions tens of thousands dying from pollution, lack of medical care, or climate change. I watched a month of hurricane coverage on the MSM and heard the term climate change maybe three times.

Then I see Chris Christie leaving office, without being charged. I see people like Donald Trump spend decades laundering money for the Oligarch Criminals across the planet, and even if he pays a price, they won't. The wealthy rarely get prosecuted, regardless of the crimes they commit. They run the world as their piggy bank. English tea shops have to pay taxes, but the Starbucks next door is a Luxembourg company and doesn't. This is insane.

Six people have more wealth then half the world's population. This is truly insane. These six should pay half the world's taxes. Like that will happen.

Someday "the world" will have to stand up to this.

Any thoughts?
