And the behavior of the is becoming ever more obscene, to put it mildly.

" In a [financially-]rich man's house there is no place to spit but in his face. " -- Diogenes (412-323 BC)

( I suggest, "the rich" should better be called "the", because, in matters that really matter --like spirituality, emotions, creativity, character, liveliness, and such-- the are, to the last one, among the poorest people on Earth. And if anyone should read '' as 'frakking fascistic...' - well, that wouldn't be too far off my point either. )

PROPERTY(*) == THEFT, er, no, make that: (mostly armed, violent) ROBBERY.
*) any property beyond basic things for personal use
