Richest !% Will Own 2/3's of Global Wealth.

The reason why the 'left' (the other 99%) want to take other people's money. It doesn't appear that the 1% are running out of their money (other people's money) any time soon.

The big lie that the right and their libertarian allies have been using for far too long. The poor and the middle class ran out of money quite a long time ago.

How did you come to believe that the 1%er's money "belongs" to someone else?

Does this somehow relate to the Marxist construct that all wealth should be equally distributed by government?

It's fascinating how some people feel they have a right to lay claim on the wealth of others.

What conclusion would a libertarian come to when 2/3's of the global wealth will soon be in the hands of 1% of the world's people?

Somebody has definitely been laying claim on the wealth of others.

Your kind of libertarians appear to be promoting that. I never will.

Don't worry about it right now. Your efforts need to be antiwar at the moment. Your agenda can wait.

What, in your philosophy, constitutes legitimate ownership? It seems to me it's a matter of everyone else having enough of it.

I can't really own a teddy bear unless everyone else has a teddy bear, and if they don't I must be somehow taking the teddy bears of others.
  

This moral relativism of yours is exactly what lets government take this freedom, then that freedom, until we have lost them all.

OK, Chinese Oligarchs, Russian Oligarchs, European Oligarchs, roving Oligarchs like George Soros, U.S Oligarchs...

I know there are lots more, but aren't government crony Oligarchs the richest?

Isn't wealth in all modern nations states concentrated around the capitals?

Yet this sort of statistic is presented as an indictment of free markets and individual economic Liberty. What a shameful lie.

Everyone at birth has exactly equal amounts of ownership.

Every person, first and foremost, from birth (or conception if you prefer) owns their own person, by Right.

Beyond that, you are talking about using government force to be sure, by government standards, that everyone has "enough"... and the Party Elite live in palaces with lots of protection.
