6 Degrees of Separation

6deg

 

The proposition of 6 Degrees of separation, that we are never more than six people by acquaintance, away from anyone on the planet, has a certain intrigue when you consider there are nigh on 7 billion citizens of Planet Earth. It reinforces the notion that we are all related regardless of ethnicity, religion, or politics.

What about the Banks, remember to mention the Banks.

Meanwhile a metaphysical tsunami sweeps the earth, surfs up for the multinationals so the greedy have just got greedier. Current figures suggest since the crash of 2008 the 1% of super rich in the US saw an 11.6% increase in income while the 99% saw a 0.6% increase.

The Banks, remember.

Here in Britain there have been a slew of stories of corporate and personal tax avoidance schemes, offshore accounts where Nutkin can squirrel away a fortune, and European stars and celebs who opted to become tax exiles rather than contribute to the community purse. No doubt all fully paid up members of the Ivana Trump ”Only the little people pay taxes” Society. All the more unfortunate as some who were hailed for their leadership have proven to be self-serving and advocates of double standards. In common parlance, shysters.

Now the Banks.

As if that weren’t enough to deal with before breakfast, Communism is being challenged or has failed while Capitalism seems to be a crumbling edifice. Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear, what a pickle we are in.

Come on man, the Banks.

Mr. and Mrs. Greedy will probably never read this but if you happen upon, or know the whereabouts of, the Greedys pass on the regards of those who survive on less than $10 a day, that’s 2.5 billion human beings, a conservative estimate upwardly adjustable like the Greedys amassed fortune. They wont be sending a card.

ET if you happen upon Voyager out there in the universe, and can decipher the Planet Earth Promotion disc on-board, now 25 years old, celebrating human creativity, a postscript to content, destruction is trending. So don’t visit just yet we’re doing a spot of spring-cleaning, well the little people are.

Sorry out of time on the Banks.
