Billionaires' wealth rises to $10.2 trillion amid Covid crisis
#Comment: Predictably the super-rich increased their already perverse fortunes by more than a quarter in 2020. At this point, the global kleptocrat class is truly above and beyond sanity. As their sense of omnipotence keeps growing exponentially, they can't seem to hear the sound of people around the world preparing the guillotines for them. Once the impact of corona fully unfolds (corona is a most convenient shield for the kleptocrats, allowing them to pretend that they did not cause this crisis through the usual means - greed and stupidity - but its all due to a evil virus), the anger in western economies will be uncontrollable, even for a modern cybernetic surveillance police state. A real shame, as a solution without violence is preferable for all.
