According to the report of charity organization Oxfam, the 10 richest people in the world have doubled their wealth since the beginning of the pandemic, reaching a total of $ 1.5 trillion. In other words, the rich have turned the global crisis caused by the pandemic into an opportunity to get richer. In this regard, one of our newspapers, which published the report in question, gave the news under the heading "The pandemic has made the rich richer".
Did the epidemic only make the richest people in the world richer? Saying yes to this question means not seeing the truth. Because in another newspaper yesterday, the title used to express the global wealthy was used to explain the situation of narrow and fixed incomes in our country, as "The rich became richer, the poor got poorer". When we consider and evaluate the two news and headlines together, it is clearly seen that the dominant capital order in the world is designed to protect and watch over the interests of global capital. As such, it would not be wrong to say that the whole world serves 10 people and colonial capitalist countries. In fact, if one more step is taken, this order, which means the enslavement of billions of people, at the expense of billions of people going to their beds hungry, should be destroyed, but I think there can be no healthy explanation for humanity to put their necks on the knife like sacrificial sheep.
In the meantime, it would not be an exaggeration to say that while billions of people are being forced to live on an income that will not die of hunger, a large part of the world's population has been reduced to wage slaves. When we say wage slaves, it would be wrong to think that the workers receive a living wage. It's as if the death of wage slaves doesn't work for them, just to perpetuate the slavery of billions. Perhaps wage slavery will be cheaper than the unpaid slavery system, which they maintain. It is possible to be angry with those who maintain this order, but wouldn't it be unfair not to be angry with those who surrender to this order?
On the one hand, billions of people around the world are forced to pay below the hunger and poverty line, on the other hand, according to the report, according to the report, the bottom 40 percent of the richest men (3.1 billion people) have six times more wealth, 10 billionaires own their wealth. It is stated that it will take 414 years to spend a million dollars every day.
At this point, while millions of people, especially in Africa, were uprooted from their homes and taken to their own countries for centuries by some countries, and they worked there as slaves in the fields, for a long time to be able to benefit from those people for a long time, at least it was their masters' (!) duty to provide a place of shelter and to feed their stomachs. they freed themselves and did not have much responsibility to their slaves. In short, when this situation is clearly evident, the answer to the question why people who are used like slaves do not stand up and say enough is enough, needs to be investigated.
I mean, why don't they say enough is enough, like in the movie Revolt of the Slaves? Or were these feelings of wage slaves destroyed as well? In any event, we live in such a world that a large part of humanity is almost drugged, and they have come to accept without question that what is given and shown to them is the best and most accurate. However, if the rich people in question see that they will lose their comfort and that their exploitation will be stopped, perhaps they will be able to share some of their wealth. But instead of waiting for such a voluntary sharing, states should save the poor from their situation by taking wealth tax from these rich people. Otherwise, won't the whole world be handed over to the ambitions of the 10 rich people by the states?
