[Xmca-l] Re: 62:3.5 billion

I do not glorify the bottom half of the world's population as cornel west does because, as I see it, they are complicit in the perpetuation of the system established by the top 1 percent.... the bottom half want to be billionaires  (I had to spend hours in line at the grocery store last week while the poor brown, black, and white folks of my neighborhood in south florida stood in line discussing the luxury items they are going to purchase should they win the power ball).

Oxfam report: The world's 62 richest billionaires have as much wealth as
the bottom
half of the world's population.

Literally unimaginable.
