Put this question to yourself: should I use everyone else to attain happiness, or should I help others gain happiness? — Dalai Lama
The difference between the corrupt elite and looters is that looters are more direct and get caught!
Greedy bankers contribute nothing to society, but award themselves multimillion pound bonuses.
Worthless celebrities are just that.
We rape and pillage the earth.
Workers toil all their life for very little reward.
Parliament was recalled, but apart from those who gave first hand accounts, those who spoke in the debate simply showed how out of touch with reality they are.
A rare example of measured words of wisdom was the Archbishop of Canterbury speaking in the House of Lords.
Yes, we need to clamp down hard on the looters and the thugs that terrorise the slum estates, but what of Vodafone who avoid their tax, all £6 billion of it, or Sir Philip Green?
It is said the looters do not know the difference between right and wrong. They do know the difference, but the moral lesson they are taught is that greed rules ok and and they want a piece of the cake. They see hard working folk who are paid a pittance and see them as losers. The ones they have personal experience of with money are the drug dealers. They see corrupt police, corrupt elites supping at the table of the evil Murdoch Empire.
Looting is the new late night shopping. Are we not told shopping makes you happy, that you should shop until you drop, that wanton consumerism is the new religion?
