Credit Suisse documents in Global Wealth Report 2015 that the world’s wealthiest 1% now own more assets than Earth’s 99% combined.
This fact occurs simultaneously while 30,000 children die daily from preventable poverty, despite since 1969 these 1% and above wealth and political “leaders” of so-called “developed” and “former” colonial powers have promised to “end poverty once and for all, forever.” The total poverty deaths since just 1995 are ~400 million; more than all wars and violent deaths in recorded human history.
Please take a moment to experience that death from poverty is almost always gruesomely slow and painful, both for the victim and all who love them.
Please also note that “inhumane acts intentionally causing great suffering or serious bodily injury” is the legal definition of “Crimes against humanity.”
