One and a half billion people live on less than $1.25 per day

For all the so-called civilized people in this world, who are so disgusted by what happened in Nazi Germany, you need to look at yourselves first, and very, very closely!

Could any of you, including Asians, Europeans, Russians and, in particular, Mericans, live on the equivalent of $5.00 a day? No you could not, and neither could I. And yet two-thirds (67%) of the people on this planet are faced with this situation every day of their lives, while the rest of us go about our lives like nothing is wrong, and the elite-swine get wealthier and wealthier.

While these billions of people are dying of starvation and disease, the elite-pigs of this world have raked in seven trillion dollars so far this year. How in the hell can any one individual need this kind of wealth? These swine are insane with greed and power, and we need to do something about them!

Read this article, and then tell me the rest of us are ‘good people’, when we are allowing this kind of monstrous crime, this kind of monstrous genocide, to continue, because we are to uncaring and/or afraid to stand up to this minority of insane monsters who are perpetrating this crime against humanity!

If, as the report claims, global poverty figures are “understated by as much as a quarter,” then more than 2.5 billion people, or over a third of the world’s population, survive on less than $2 per day.

The most deprived layers of society—people who are homeless, or…
