Gap Between Rich And Poor: 8th Wonder Of The World

Republished by Blog Post Promoter

PARIS—At a press conference Tuesday, the World Heritage Committee officially recognized the Gap Between Rich and Poor as the “Eighth Wonder of the World,” describing the global wealth divide as the “most colossal and enduring of mankind’s creations.”

“Of all the epic structures the human race has devised, none is more staggering or imposing than the Gap Between Rich and Poor,” committee chairman Henri Jean-Baptiste said. “It is a tremendous, millennia-old expanse that fills us with both wonder and humility.”

“And thanks to careful maintenance through the ages, this massive relic survives intact, instilling in each new generation a sense of awe,” Jean- Baptiste added.

The vast chasm of wealth, which stretches across most of the inhabited world, attracts millions of stunned observers each year, many of whom have found its immensity too overwhelming even to contemplate. By far the largest man-made structure on Earth, it is readily visible from locations as far-flung as Eastern Europe, China, Africa, and Brazil, as well as all 50 U.S. states.

“The original Seven Wonders of the World pale in comparison to this,” said World Heritage Committee member Edwin MacAlister, standing in front of a striking photograph of the Gap Between Rich and Poor taken from above Mexico City. “It is an astounding feat of human engineering that eclipses the Great Wall of China, the Pyramids of Giza, and perhaps even the Great Racial Divide.”

According to anthropologists, untold millions of slaves and serfs toiled their whole lives to complete the gap. Records indicate the work likely began around 10,000 years ago, when the world’s first landed elites convinced their subjects that construction of such a monument was the will of a divine authority, a belief still widely held today.

Though historians have repeatedly disproved such claims, theories still persist among many that the Gap Between Rich and Poor was built by the Jews.

“When I stare out across its astounding breadth, I’m often moved to tears,” said Johannesburg resident Grace Ngubane, 31, whose home is situated on one of the widest sections of the gap. “The scale is staggering—it makes you feel really, really small.”

“Insignificant, even,” she continued.

While numerous individuals have tried to cross the Gap Between Rich and Poor, evidence suggests that only a small fraction have ever succeeded and many have died in the attempt.

Its official recognition as the Eighth Wonder of the World marks the culmination of a dramatic turnaround from just 50 years ago, when popular movements called for the gap’s closure. However, due to a small group of dedicated politicians and industry leaders, vigorous preservation efforts were begun around 1980 to restore—and greatly expand—the age-old structure.

“It’s breathtaking,” said Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein, a longtime champion and benefactor of the rift’s conservation. “After all we’ve been through in recent years, there’s no greater privilege than watching it grow bigger and bigger each day. There may be a few naysayers who worry that if it gets any wider, the whole thing will collapse upon itself and take millions of people down with it, but I for one am willing to take that chance.”

Added Blankfein, “Besides, something tells me I’d probably make it out okay.”

CRIME IS “NORMAL”

CRIME IS NORMALNaturally, an healthy life organism acts to increase the well-being, health, good-fortune, sustainability and longevity of itself and others who are inter-dependent for mutual survival.  On Earth, the “food chain” in nature dictates a “hierarchy of evil” (depending on the point of view of the eater vs the eaten).  When a sea lion kills and eats a penguin this is “normal”.  No “crime” has been committed — from the point of view of the sea lion.

In human society, when one man kills another, or steals his possessions, it is conceived that this man is “evil” and has committed a “crime” — from the point of view of the victim.  If entire nations of killers invade a defenseless people who are unable to invoke “law” or “justice” or “revenge”, then no “crime” has been committed — from the point of view of the killers.

Examples of “evil” behavior and activities of this kind are “normal” through the entire history of human society, whether  conducted by brutal military conquest, religious indoctrination or financial swindle, theft or deception.

Logically, if “evil” or “crime” is “normal for humanlooting-main-street

Definition of “CRIME”

noun:   an evil act not necessarily punishable by law

Definition of “EVIL”

noun:   that which causes harm or destruction or misfortune

adjective:   having or exerting a malignant influence

Therefor, by extrapolation, the definition of “CRIMINAL” would be:

An individual, entity, organization or group of individual entities acting or prohibiting action, which acts or exerts malignant influences to create destruction, harm and misfortune, whether or not these influences or actions are punishable by law — from the point of view of the victim.

Therefor, by logical extension, the greater the magnitude of harm, destruction or misfortune caused indicates the degree to which a person, or entity is criminal.  Historically, on Earth, the very BIG criminals can usually be observed to operate and control several fundamental human activities:

1- Finance, 2- Culture/Education/Religion, 3 – Legislation/Government, 4- Industry/Commerce, 5- Military, 6- Labor, 7- Natural Resources (consumed by humans), and 8- Geographic Territory (occupied by humans), 9- Technology.

Historically, as in current “civilization”, one could apply this definition of “criminal” to Bankers,  Educators, Religions, Legislators, Politicians, Industrialists, Corporations, Energy/Food/Materials Suppliers, Government Contractors, Military leaders, Soldiers, Employers, Real Estate Owners, Scientists and Engineers, as well a individual people.

When the “criminals” control playing board and make up their own rules, there is no “evil”.  “Crime” is “normal”.

Since more and more people are beginning to realize that Wall Street is just a big scam and legalized theft for the 1% criminals of the planet, all those middle-aged ex-stockbrokers can lay down their head sets and start a new career.  How about becoming a street musician?  Here’s a guy who did:  The Great Morgani — Accordionist Extraordinaire!  (I’m glad to see a stockbroker who is out on the streets earning an honest living.)
