OxFam are saying that the reason there is so much poverty in the world is the fault of the . The top 100 earn $240bn whilst the poorest of the poor only earn a few cents a day.
What they are doing is looking at a normal distribution curve and thinking that it is wrong that there are outliers. They would like to turn the whole of mathematics and statistics on its head and throw out years of knowledge and come up with their solution – a horizontal line. They want everyone to have the same income, for everyone to be equal – because its “fair”. What they don’t realise in their tiny little minds is that inequality is what drives humanity to better itself and grow. It is what has brought us up from cave dwelling to living in air conditioned insulated homes in large civilised groups. If every one is equal there is no drive to earn that little bit more or to invent something that makes life that little bit easier.
OxFam would like us to go back to living in caves.
My only hope is that in years to come when the whole socialist edifice is finally seen through that the people in OxFam et al are seen to be the real reason why most of Africa is still not prosperous, unlike other countries such as India, China, and Brazil. And when they realise that, that they feel really really sorry for keeping people poor.
