Problematische Ungleichheit und Spaltung der Rangstufen

Siehe Gleichheit

  • Wollt ihr dem Staat Bestand verleihen, dann
    ➢ nähert die äußeren Rangstufen einander so weit wie möglich an.
    Duldet weder übermäßig Reiche noch Bettler.
    Diese beiden ihrem Wesen nach nicht voneinander zu trennenden Stände sind für das Gemeinwohl gleichermaßen verhängnisvoll. Aus dem einen gehen die Förderer der Tyrannei, aus dem anderen die Tyrannen hervor. Sie verschachern untereinander die öffentliche Freiheit, der eine kauft, der andere verkauft sie. Jean-Jacques Rousseau [BW 465] (1712-1778) Schweiz-französischer Aufklärer, Wegbereiter der Französischen Revolution, Kulturphilosoph, Pädagoge, Naturforscher, Schriftsteller, Vom Gesellschaftsvertrag oder Prinzipien des Staatsrechtes, 1762

 

  • Wir müssen wählen. Wir können eine Demokratie haben, oder wir können eine Konzentration von Reichtümern in den Händen einiger Weniger haben, aber wir können nicht beides haben. Louis Brandeis (1856-1941) US-amerikanischer Jurist, erster jüdischer Richter am Obersten Gerichtshof der Vereinigten Staaten (1916-1939)
  • Frauen, gleichgestellt, wären überlegen. Sokrates (469-399 v. Chr.) altgriechischer vorchristlicher Philosoph, Quelle unbekannt

 


Rad der Fortuna
Boccaccio, De Casibus Virorum Illustrium, 1467

 

  • In der Gegenwart eines echten spirituellen Freundes fühlst du dich gleichwertig und erfährst die wahre Ebenbürtigkeit der Seele. Es ist das unschätzbare Geschenk eines Menschen, der im Zustand der Demut weilt. Es ist, als ob eine Rose aufblüht und ihren Duft verströmt. Interview mit Andrew Harvey (*1952) indisch-britischer Religionswissenschaftler, Rumi-Übersetzer, Visionär, Lehrer der mystischen Traditionen, Architekt des heiligen Aktivismus, Dichter, Autor, Teachers and Seekers: An Interview with Andrew Harvey, präsentiert von der US-amerikanischen Mediengesellschaft Yoga Journal, Catherine Ingram, Ausgabe 123, S. 60, Juli/August 1995

 

  • Keine Staatsform bietet ein Bild hässlicherer Entartung, als wenn die Wohlhabendsten auch für die Besten gehalten werden. Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43 v. Chr.) römischer Politiker, Konsul, 63 v. Chr., Anwalt, Philosoph, berühmter Redner, Schriftsteller, Aphorismus

  • Gleichheit ohne Freiheit ist Unterdrückung.
    Freiheit ohne Gleichheit ist Ausbeutung.
    Freiheit und Gleichheit haben eine gemeinsame Wurzel: Solidarität.

Women's leadership

  • I have a belief for which some people may call me a feminist. Millions of years ago there was no idea of leadership in the human society. Everybody was equal. People worked together and whatever they had they shared with each other. Eventually the population increased. Some mischievous people then started with the concept of leadership.
    The main quality of leadership is the physical status. I believe, the male dominance [= pride culture] started from that. Then eventually education took an important role. That created more equality between men and women. Video presentation by H.H. 14th Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso (*1935) Tibetan monk, leader of the Gelug or "Yellow Hat" branch of Tibetan Buddhism, Nobel Peace Prize laureate, 1989, Peace Summit, presented by CTV.ca, video clip 2 of 4 last section, minute 14:53-17:59, Vancouver, Canada, Sunday 27.

Aluminum, mass-produced steelyard balance
  • [M]y decision to sever my ties with the Southern Baptist Convention, after six decades, was painful and difficult. It was, however, an unavoidable decision when the convention's leaders, quoting a few carefully selected Bible verses and claiming that Eve was created second to Adam and was responsible for original sin, ordained that women must be "subservient" to their husbands and prohibited from serving as deacons, pastors or chaplains in the military service.
    This view that women are somehow inferior to men is not restricted to one religion or belief. Women are prevented from playing a full and equal role in many faiths. Nor, tragically, does its influence stop at the walls of the church, mosque, synagogue or temple. This discrimination, unjustifiably attributed to a Higher Authority, has provided a reason or excuse for the deprivation of women's equal rights across the world for centuries.
    At its most repugnant, the belief that women must be subjugated to the wishes of men excuses slavery, violence, forced prostitution, genital mutilation and national laws that omit rape as a crime. But it also costs many millions of girls and women control over their own bodies and lives, and continues to deny them fair access to education, health, employment and influence within their own communities. Article by Jimmy Carter (*1924) US American politician, 39th US president (1977-1981), Losing my religion for equality, presented by The Age, 15. July 2009

 

Churchill, Roosevelt, and Stalin met in order to talk about Europe's Post War reorganization. When Roosevelt left
the room during a break Stalin turned to Churchill and made a comment about FDR being a pig.

  • I like pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals. Winston Churchill (1874-1965) British prime minister of the United Kingdom during the 2nd World War (1940-1945) and (1951-1955), racist war criminal, in reference to Franklin D. Roosevelt, Yalta Conference, 1945

 

Appeals

  • It is important to insist […] that equality is a higher social goal than peace. Reinhold Niebuhr (1892-1971) US American professor of theology, Union Theological Seminary, ethicist, public intellectual, commentator on politics and public affairs, Moral Man and Immoral Society. A Study in Ethics and Politics , Charles Scribner's Sons, 1932, S. 235, Westminster John Knox Press, 2002, 2nd edition 18. January 2013

 

  • We must learn to balance the material wonders of technology with the spiritual demands of our human race. John Naisbitt (*1929) US American futurologist, China expert living in Europe and China, author of Megatrends, 1982, source unknown

 

  • There's no race, no religion, no class system, no color, nothing, no sexual orientation that makes us better than anyone else. We are all deserving of love. Sandra Bullock (*1964) US American actress, movie producer, acceptance speech for the Oscar as Best Actress Award, Academy Awards. 7. March 2010

 

Conclusions

 

  • We migrated up to the male perspective. We are living in a story that is dominated by a male perspective that has cut itself of from, turned its back on the female perspective. We are living in one half of our consciousness. The solution is not to abandon the male strength, the solution is to bring them [male and female perspectives] into accord. When the head is balanced with the genius in the belly we’re no longer in survival mode. In that balanced relationship the belly is home. There are so many gifts that the head has to offer, but those gifts are not to be horded in the head, they are to be brought down to the belly and nurtured and integrated. Video interview with Philip Shepherd, Canadian expert on embodiment, actor, teacher, speaker, author, Bringing clarity to a chaotic world host, presented by Lilou Macé TV, host Lilou Macé, French-American webTV host, international Internet video blogger (*2005), author, YouTube video, minute 18:55, 31:47 minutes duration, posted 2.

Women's equality

  • Women's equality is not just a moral issue, it's not just a humanitarian issue, it is not just a fairness issue. It is a security issue, it is a prosperity issue, and it is a peace issue.
    Therefore when I talk about why we need to integrate women's issues into discussions at the highest levels everywhere in the world, I'm not doing it just because I have a personal commitment or because President Obama cares about it. I'm doing it because it's in the vital interests of the United States of America. Hillary Clinton (*1947) 67th United States Secretary of State under president Barack Obama, US senator for New York (2001-2009), wife of the 42nd US president Bill Clinton presented by TEDWomen Talks, Washington, D.C., 8.

Future outlook

  • A day will come when there will be no battlefields, but markets opening to commerce and minds opening to ideas. A day will come when the bullets and bombs are replaced by votes, by universal suffrage, by the venerable arbitration of a great supreme senate which will be to Europe what Parliament is to England, the Diet to Germany, and the Legislative Assembly to France.
    A day will come when a cannon will be a museum-piece, as instruments of torture are today. And we will be amazed to think that these things once existed!
    A day will come when we shall see those two immense groups, the United States of America and the United States of Europe, facing one another, stretching out their hands across the sea, exchanging their products, their arts, their works of genius, clearing up the globe, making deserts fruitful, ameliorating creation under the eyes of the Creator, and joining together, to reap the well-being of all, these two infinite forces,
    1. the fraternity of men
    2. and the power of God.
Victor Hugo (1802-1885) French statesman, human rights activist, exponent of the Romantic movement in France, visual artist, playwright, poet, essayist, novelist, opening address, Peace Congress, Paris, 21 August 1849; cited in: Actes et paroles. Avant l'exil, 1875

Invocations

  • God never intended for one group of people to live in superfluous inordinate wealth, while others live in abject deadening poverty. God intends for all of his children to have the basic necessities of life, and he has left in this universe "enough and to spare" for that purpose. So I call upon you to bridge the gulf between abject poverty and superfluous wealth. Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929-1968) US American Baptist minister, activist, leader of the African American civil rights movement, Nobel Peace Prize laureate, 1964, Paul’s Letter to American Christians, Dexter Avenue Baptist Church, Montgomery, Alabama, 4. November 1956
  • Awe should be reserved for revelation, to which it is perfectly and correctly applicable. It is not appropriate for miracles because a state of awe is worshipful, implying that one of a lesser order stands before his Creator. You are a perfect creation, and should experience awe only in the presence of the Creator of perfection. The miracle is therefore a sign of love among equals. Equals should not be in awe of one another because awe implies inequality. It is therefore an inappropriate reaction to me. An elder brother is entitled to respect for his greater experience, and obedience for his greater wisdom. He is also entitled to love because he is a brother, and to devotion if he is devoted. It is only my devotion that entitles me to yours. There is nothing about me that you cannot attain. I have nothing that does not come from God. The difference between us now is that I have nothing else. This leaves me in a state which is only potential in you. A Course in Miracles (ACIM), textbook, chapter 1 The Meaning of Miracles, section 2 Revelation, Time and Miracles, first page, 3rd paragraph

 

  • Once made equal to man, woman becomes his superior. Socrates (469-399 BC) ancient Greek pre-Christian philosopher

 

  • Even the weak become strong when they are united. Friedrich von Schiller (1759-1805) German philosopher, historian, poet, playwright, William Tell, character Stauffacher, 3rd scene, 1804

 

  • I have been a brother, I have been a father, I’m going to be a grandfather, I have never been a sister or a mother or a grandmother, so this is why I wrote it really about little boys. […]
    If you – as it were – scaled down human beings, scaled down society, if you land with a group of little boys, they are more like a scaled-down version of society1 than a group of little girls would be. Don't ask me why, and this is a terrible thing to say because I'm going to be chased from hell to breakfast by all the women who talk about equality – this is nothing to do with equality at all. I think women are foolish to pretend they are equal to men, they are far superior and always have been. But one thing you can't do with them is take a bunch of them and boil them down, so to speak, into a set of little girls who would then become a kind of image of civilisation, of society. The other thing is – why aren't they little boys AND little girls? Well, if they'd been little boys and little girls, we being who we are, sex would have raised its lovely head, and I didn't want this to be about sex. Sex is too trivial a thing to get in with a story like this, which was about the problem of evil and the problem of how people are to live together in a society, not just as lovers or man and wife. William Golding (1911-1993) English playwright, poet, novelist, Nobel laureate in literature, 1983, dystopian novel Lord of the Flies, Faber and Faber, part 2, Introduction, United Kingdom, 17. September 1954

Income inequality hurts democracy.

  • SPIEGEL: The level of income inequality in advanced nations is greater than ever before. What effect does that have on our societies?
    Fukuyama: It is not good for democracy. If income is relatively evenly distributed and there are not very sharp differences between rich and poor, you have a greater sense of community. You have a greater sense of trust. You do not have parts of the community that have superior access to the political system that they can use to advance their own interests.
Interview with Francis Fukuyama (*1952) US American political scientist, author of The End of History, Where Is the Uprising from the Left?, presented by Spiegel, 2. February 2012

  • Whenever the issue of compensatory treatment for the Negro is raised, some of our friends recoil in horror. The Negro should be granted equality, they agree; but he should ask nothing more. On the surface, this appears reasonable, but it is not realistic. Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929-1968) US American Baptist minister, activist, leader of the African American civil rights movement, Nobel Peace Prize laureate, 1964, Why We Can't Wait, 1963

 

  • What you feel in the presence of a true spiritual friend is equality, the real equality of soul. That is the priceless gift of somebody who is in that state of humilty. It is like a rose opening and sending it's fragrance. Interview with Andrew Harvey (*1952) Indian-British religious scholar, Rumi translator and explicator, teacher of mystic traditions, architect of Sacred Activism, poet, novelist, author, Teachers and Seekers: An Interview with Andrew Harvey, presented by the US American media company Yoga Journal, Catherine Ingram, issue 123, S. 60, July/August 1995

"Worshippers of present civilization vs. worshippers of independence"

  • [T]he contrast between the narrow mechanical understanding, produced by a life spent in executing by fixed rules a fixed task, and the varied powers of the man of the woods, whose subsistence and safety depend at each instant upon his capacity of extemporarily adapting means to ends; the demoralizing effect of great inequalities in wealth and social rank; and the sufferings of the great mass of the people of civilized countries, whose wants are scarcely better provided for than those of the savage, while they are bound by a thousand fetters in lieu of the freedom and excitement which are his compensations. One who attends to these things, and to these exclusively, will be apt to infer that savage life is preferable to civilized; that the work of civilization should as far as possible be undone. John Stuart Mill (1806-1873) English philosopher, economist, co-author Jeremy Bentham (1748-1832) British philosopher, jurist, social reformer, founder of modern utilitarianism, Utilitarianism and Other Essays, chapter 'Coleridge', first published in the London and Westminster Review, March 1840, S. 182, Penguin Classics, Paperback, 4.

  • [E]qual interchange of goods and services between buyer and seller is the keynote of tomorrow's business world when the vision of the modern business man awakens him to the wisdom of writing that policy into his code of ethics. Walter Russell (1871-1963) US American polymath, natural philosopher, mystic, architect, painter, sculptor, builder, author (unified theory in physics and cosmogony)], cited in: Glenn Clark, The Man who Tapped the Secrets of the Universe, S. 37, University of Science and Philosophy, 15th edition June 1989

 

  • Democracy extends the sphere of individual freedom, socialism restricts it.
    Democracy attaches all possible value to each man; socialism makes each man a mere agent, a mere number.
    Democracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word: equality. But notice the difference:
    ➤ while democracy seeks equality in liberty,
    ➤ socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude.
    Alexis de Tocqueville (1805-1859) French historian, political thinker, publicist, author, translated by Hayek, The Road to Serfdom, "Discours prononcé à l'assemblée constituante le 12 Septembre 1848 sur la question du droit au travail", Oeuvres complètes, vol. IX, S. 546, M. Lévy Frères, 1866

 

  • No man can call himself liberal, or radical, or even a conservative advocate of fair play, if his work depends in any way on the unpaid or underpaid labor of women at home, or in the office.

  • [Mitt Romney] has the nerve to say he is for job creation. His entire career has been job elimination. He is not even willing to say he is for equal pay. And it happens that equal pay for women of all races is the greatest economic stimulus this country could ever have.
    Equal pay, and I mean for equal work, would put $200 billion more into the economy every year. That means about $137 for every white woman per pay check – something like $300 for every woman of color who are doubly discriminated against. And you know that those women are not going to put that money into a Cayman Islands bank account – they are going to spend that money, and that is going to create jobs. Gloria Steinem gloriasteinem.com (*1934) leading US American feminist of the new women's movement, visionary and political activist, journalist, writer, Gloria Steinem: Transcript of her speech in St. Petersburg, FL 10/20/2012, sponsored by I Am Choice, 22.

Equal pay for women will recover the economy.

  • Equal pay for comparable work for women would be the greatest economic stimulus this country could ever have. It would put $200 billion more into the economy every year.

Definition of feminism

  • Question WW: What is your definition of feminism now?
    Gloria Steinem: The dictionary's.
    Question WW: Hasn't it changed?
    Gloria Steinem: No, not at all. It is the belief in the social, economic, political equality of males and females. A feminist is the person, male or female, who believes in that. I would like to add acts on it. There are other words that mean the same thing: womanism, women’s liberation, girrls – with two r's, which I love – and mujerista.

  • The most important problem that we are facing now today, I think, is rising inequality in the United States and elsewhere in the world. Robert J.

Equal pairs of opposites

  • Every pair of opposites is divided by an equilibrium which is a balance between the two, but that balance is not either of the two. Sodium-chloride is an equilibrium which voids both sodium and chlorine, for neither is present in it. Likewise, water is the equator which voids hydrogen and oxygen.
    All opposites of all kinds extend from a mutual equator which is their common unity, and to that equator they must eventually return in order to repeat. Every pair must become one in order to again become two. Men and women do not escape this two-way reciprocatve law. Each becomes what the other is. Both are always compromising each other’s unbalance. If the two unbalances are equal and opposite, each type will survive and grow mentally, spiritually and physically. If the two unbalanced mates are unequal in their opposition, the penalty is degeneration – mentally, spiritually and physically. The quality of one mate is a compromise with the quality of the other. The pattern resulting from this spiritual, mental and moral development is compromised for good or bad by every contact between them – no matter how slight. This is true even outside the sex union. Walter Russell (1871-1963) US American polymath, natural philosopher, mystic, architect, painter, sculptor, builder, author (unified theory in physics and cosmogony), Message of the Divine Iliad Vol. 2, S. 168-169, University of Science and Philosophy, June 1971

Research shows:

Among developed countries, the healthiest and happiest aren't those with the highest incomes but those with the most equality.

  • [A]lmost any animal species, there is a huge potential for conflict amongst members of the same species, because they have all the same needs. They eat the same food stuffs, they need the same nesting sites, they value the same feeding grounds or territories, they compete for sexual partners. It was that recognition in human populations that made the political philosopher Thomas Hobbes in the 17th century say that human beings, without a sovereign power to keep the peace, would war against each other and have "nasty, brutish, and short" lives.
    ➤ Amongst monkeys, inequality takes the form of dominance hierarchies, based on power and coercion and privileged access to resources: "I get it first because I'm stronger, and I don't care if you're hungry."
    ➤ Human hierarchies are similar – it's why power, status, and wealth all go together at the top and why powerlessness, hunger, and poverty go together at the bottom. Richard Wilkinson, Ph.D. (*1943) British retired social epidemiologist, University of Nottingham, economic historian, Why Everyone Suffers in Unequal Societies, presented by YES magazine, Brooke Jarvis, posted 4. March 2010

 


Social network diagram, meso-level
  • More unequal countries, the ones with the bigger income differences between rich and poor have
    ⚑ much more violence,
    ⚑ worse life expectancy,
    ⚑ more mental illness,
    ⚑ more obesity,
    ⚑ more people in prison, and
    ⚑ more teenage births.
All these problems get worse with greater inequality, because it damages the social fabric of a society.
In more unequal societies, the levels of trust — the number of people who feel they can trust others — drops to about fifteen or twenty percent.
But in more equal societies, more like sixty or sixty-five percent feel they can trust others.
When the U.S. was one of the more equal countries, its health was amongst the better, not quite at the top, but — in the top few. Now, it comes behind all the other developed countries. And it swapped places with Japan, which used to be one of the more unequal countries, had bad health, but then from the ’50s through the ’80s, they became more equal. Their health outstripped every other country in the world. Their crime rates went down. But the U.S.’s position relative to others has slipped all through that period.

  • If you had the same income or education and lived in a more equal society
    ➤ you'd probably live a little bit longer.
    ➤ You'd be less likely to become a victim of violence.
    ➤ Your children might do a bit better at school.
    ➤ They'd be less likely to become involved in drugs or
    ➤ to become teenage parents.
In terms of the really important measures of human wellbeing greater equality is good for us all. Economic growth no longer drives
➤ improvement in life expectancy
➤ or measures of wellbeing
➤ or happiness.
What does make a difference to all of us is the quality of social relationships.
What the data shows us is that we can improve the quality of human relationships in whole societies by reducing the scale of income differences.

  • [A] new report published by the Economic Policy Institute showing that in 2012, CEO pay was 202.3 times more than typical worker pay2, illustrates that inequality likely isn’t a topic that will be solved any time soon. But Wilkinson believes that the continued groundswell of unrest with the ruling classes and large corporations surging through so many societies could provide the political will for systemic change.

  • The moral crisis of our age has nothing to do with gay marriage or abortion; it’s insider trading, obscene CEO pay, wage theft from ordinary workers, Wall Street's continued gambling addiction, corporate payoffs to friendly politicians, and the billionaire takeover of our democracy.   Robert Reich, Ph.D. (*1946) US American professor of economics and public politics, University of California, Berkeley, 22nd US secretary of labor (1993-1997), political commentator, author, Facebook comment, 29.

  • People of privilege will always risk their complete destruction rather than surrender any material part of their advantage. Intellectual myopia, often called stupidity, is no doubt a reason. But the privileged also feel that their privileges, however egregious they may seem to others, are a solemn, basic, God-given right. The sensitivity of the poor to injustice is a trivial thing compared with that of the rich.

  • That's what nobody gets, that the two approaches to justice may individually make a kind of sense, but side by side they’re a dystopia, where common city courts become factories for turning poor people into prisoners, while federal prosecutors on the white-collar beat turn into overpriced garbage men, who behind closed doors quietly dispose of the sins of the rich for a fee. And it's evolved this way over time and for a thousand reasons, so that almost nobody is aware of the whole picture, the two worlds so separate that they're barely visible to each other. The usual political descriptors like 'unfairness' and 'injustice' don't really apply. It's more like a breakdown into madness. Matt Taibbi (*1970) US American journalist, author, The Divide. American Injustice in the Age of the Wealth Gap, presented by truth-out.org, 4. May 2014

The money system makes increasing inequality a mathematical certainty.

3% of all money worldwide is minted, 97% is digitally issued fiat money by private bankers.

  • In most countries, about 3% of our money originates from government-owned mints that make notes and coins. The rest is digital and created by private banks, out of nothing, when they issue loans. […]
    This monetary system also means that although individually we might pay off our debts, collectively we are in debt forever, paying interest to the banks. So this money system makes increasing inequality a mathematical certainty. Trading without money? Why a new system can address the economic spiral, presetented by guardian.co.uk, Jem Bendell, 12.

True forms of equality – necessity of inequal diversity

  • Conservatives pay attention to the principle of variety. They feel affection for the proliferating intricacy of long-established social institutions and modes of life, as distinguished from the narrowing uniformity and deadening egalitarianism of radical systems. For the preservation of a healthy diversity in any civilization, there must survive orders and classes, differences in material condition, and many sorts of inequality. The only true forms of equality are
    ➤ equality at the Last Judgment and
    ➤ equality before a just court of law;
all other attempts at levelling must lead, at best, to social stagnation.
Society requires honest and able leadership;
and if natural and institutional differences are destroyed, presently some tyrant or host of squalid oligarchs will create new forms of inequality. Russell Kirk (1918-1994) influencial US American political theorist on 20th century Anglo-American conservatism, historian, moralist, social critic, literary critic, fiction author, Ten Conservative Principles, adapted from The Politics of Prudence, ISI Books, 1993

  • When men share housework and childcare, their children do better in school. Their children have lower rates of absenteeism, higher rates of achievement. They are less likely to be diagnosed with ADHD. They are less likely to see a child psychiatrist. They are less likely to be put on medication.
    So when men share housework and childcare, their children are happier and healthier, and men want this.
    When men share housework and childcare, their wives are happier. Duh. Not only that, their wives are healthier. Their wives are less likely to see a therapist, less likely to be diagnosed with depression, less likely to be put on medication, more likely to go to the gym, report higher levels of marital satisfaction. So when men share housework and childcare, their wives are happier and healthier, and men certainly want this as well. When men share housework and childcare, the men are healthier. They smoke less, drink less, take recreational drugs less often. They are less likely to go to the ER but more like to go to a doctor for routine screenings. They are less likely to see a therapist, less likely to be diagnosed with depression, less likely to be taking prescription medication. So when men share housework and childcare, the men are happier and healthier.

  • Three stages of rationalization of inequality
    1. Denial"Rising inequality? What rise in inequality?"
    2. OK but there is social mobility"OK, inequality has been rising, but it doesn't matter, because we have lots of social mobility."
    3. OK but the right kind of people are in power"OK, we don't have lots of social mobility. But that's a good thing."

  • [T]he entire business model for something like Chase's credit card business is not much more than a gigantic welfare fraud scheme. These companies borrow hundreds of billions of dollars from the Fed at rock-bottom rates, then turn around and lend it out to the world at 5, 10, 15, 20 percent, as credit cards and mortgages, boat loans and aircraft loans, and so on. If you pay it back, great, it's a 500 percent or 1,000 percent or 4,000 percent profit for the bank. If you don't pay it back, the company can put your name in the hopper to be sued. A $5,000 debt on a credit card for the now-defunct Circuit City, which was actually a Chase card, became a $13,000 or $14,000 debt by the time the bank finished applying fees and penalties. Just like a welfare application, you have to read the fine print.

Literary quotes

  • Some animals are more equal than others. George Orwell [Eric Arthur Blair] (1903-1950) English journalist, essayist, writer, Animal Farm, Secker and Warburg, London, 17. August 1945

 

  • But there is one way in this country in which all men are created equal – there is one human institution that makes
    • a pauper the equal of a Rockefeller,
    • the stupid man the equal of an Einstein,
    • and the ignorant man the equal of any college president.
That institution, gentlemen, is a court. It can be the Supreme Court of the United States or the humblest J.P. court in the land, or this honourable court which you serve. Our courts have their faults, as does any human institution, but in this country our courts are the great levellers, and in our courts all men are created equal. Harper Lee (1926-2016) US American author, To Kill a Mockingbird, part 2, chapter 20, J. B. Lippincott & Co., 1960

Noblesse oblige – among equals.

 

  • That which is the Absolute Reality has no needs, as it already is All That Is.
    • There is no need for power when one is power itself.
    • Infinite Power has no need to control anything.
By analogy, the sky does not need the clouds nor does it create or destroy them. They arise within its all encompassing, boundless space. The sky does not kill, retaliate, or punish clouds. The sky provides equality to all clouds as well as the context for their formation of perceptual appearance and disappearance.

Effects of attractor fields: The formerly poor can become rich.

  • Actualization is an option and a choice as an aspect of the will. Each positive choice increases the likelihood and probability of additional positive choices (which is also in accordance with quantum theory). Each positive choice moves one closer to a higher attractor field of consciousness. In the secular world where 'the rich get richer and the poor get poorer', it is equally true that by integrity and effort, the formerly poor can become rich, and the formerly rich, through error, can become bankrupt. Human life offers a great value as being the optimum opportunity for spiritual evolution. By choice, the 'iron filing' of the spirit is drawn to the various regions of the great omnipotent, omnipresent field of consciousness itself. This is analogous to the effect of a giant electromagnetic field of infinite power. Dr. David R. Hawkins, Transcending Levels of Consciousness. The Stairway to Enlightenment, S. 358, 2006

The term "Creator" in the US Constitution guarantees the equality of each citizen.

  • Why is the United States [of America] so powerful?
    It's the foremost nation in the world. It's the most evolved society that has ever been on the globe. […] If you calibrate the United States Constitution [LoC 720] it is the highest of any country in the world. It's carefully crafted. It came about as a result of thousands of years of research on the subject [of democracy]. [...] It's extremely complex in its development.
    The Constitution guarantees the freedom of everyone. It says, the equality of the citizens is a derivative of the Divinity of their Creator. By the virtue of the Divinity of creation we are all equal.
    Therefore, equality is guaranteed by spiritual Reality. That we are all created equal by God, that is a very powerful statement. […]
    The Constitution by being spiritual in orientation guarantees two things: the freedom of religion and freedom from religion. That's quite an accomplishment and extremely brilliant.

Biblical forgiveness myths – Turning the other cheek as a sign of equality

"If anyone strikes you on the cheek, offer the other also." Luke 6, 29 (NT)

 

"Do not resist an evil person. If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also." Matthew 5, 39 (NT)

 

  • "Turning one's cheek when slapped" is not the antithesis to the Old Testament "eye for an eye" policy which served as a check for vengeance.
    "Turning one's cheek when slapped" is neither an act of forgiveness nor was it a sign of acquiescence in the days of Jesus. Turning the cheek would challenge the aggressor to strike with their left unclean hand, or else with the open right hand, which would signal equality. Thus, turning the other cheek was an act of nonviolent resistance.
    When faced with (verbal) aggression Jesus suggested first to ignore it. When attacked with corporeal violence He recommended to directly challenge the opponent as described above. At any rate, He asked to pray for one's aggressors.

Statistics on the worldwide inequality gap (2014-2015-2016)

20. January 2014: The Oxfam International report Working for the Few offers statistics
on the "growing tide of inequality" worldwide:

  • Almost half of the world's wealth is now owned by just one percent of the population.
  • The wealth of the one percent richest people in the world amounts to $110 trillion.
    That’s 65 times the total wealth of the bottom half of the world’s population.
  • The bottom half of the world’s population owns the same as the richest 85 people in the world.
  • Seven out of ten people live in countries where economic inequality has increased in the last 30 years.
  • The richest one percent increased their share of income in 24 out of 26 countries
    for which we have data between 1980 and 2012.
  • In the US, the wealthiest one percent captured 95 percent of post-financial crisis growth since 2009,
    while the bottom 90 percent became poorer.

18. January 2016: Oxfam International report Working for the Few:

  • The richest 62 individuals are as wealthy as half of world's population.
  • 1% of the world's richest people own more wealth than the other 99% combined.

16. January 2017: Oxfam International report Working for the Few:3

  • The superrichest 8 men[*] (worth 426 billion dollars) own the same wealth  as the 3.6 billion people of the poorest half of humanity (worth 409 billion dollars).
  • 1% of the world's richest people own more wealth than the other 99% combined.
    • 1 in 10 people survive on less than $2 a day.

The appropriate emotion is shame – shame at our own dependency, in this case, on the underpaid labor of others. When someone works for less pay than she can live on – when, for example, she goes hungry so that you can eat more cheaply and conveniently – then she has made a great sacrifice for you, she has made you a gift of some part of her abilities, her health, and her life. The "working poor," as they are approvingly termed, are in fact the major philanthropists of our society. They neglect their own children so that the children of others will be cared for; they live in substandard housing so that other homes will be shiny and perfect; they endure privation so that inflation will be low and stock prices high. To be a member of the working poor is to be an anonymous donor, a nameless benefactor, to everyone else.   Barbara Ehrenreich (*1941) US American journalist, political activist, myth busting author, Nickel and Dimed. On (Not) Getting By in America, chapter "Evaluation", Metropolitan Books, S. 221, 2001

Implications of social inequality

Distribution of wealth in the United States, inequality and difference between the actual statistics and the perception of inequality, ignorance of US American citizens on the stunningly massive the wealth gap in US.12

The richest 2% in the world have more wealth than the rest of 7 billion people worldwide.
The richest 300 people have more wealth than 3,000,000 billion people (population of India, China, Brazil, and US combined).
Gap 1810s: The richest countries were 3 times as rich as the poorest countries.
Gap 1960s (end of colonialism): The richest countries were 35 times as rich as the poorest countries.
Gap 2013: The richest countries are 80 times richer as the poorest countries.

Examining inequality in the U.S. justice system

Analyzing approximately 2,000 survey questions regarding a range of federal government policies since the 1980's, Gilens found that policy makers respond exclusively to the desires of the rich – with the preferences of ordinary citizens being largely irrelevant.

Kimmel refers to a longitudinal study that found that gender equality is key to health, happiness and a prolonged sexlife.
When men SHARE on a regular basis (not pitch in or help out) housework and childcare both their children and their wives turn out to be happier and healthier. Their wives report higher levels of marital satisfaction (due to voluntary choreplay). Even better, those housework sharing and child caring men turn out to be happier and healthier than the pascha types – and they enjoy more sex than the macho men.
