    Instead of shaming rich people most of which are responsible for great inventions and achievements for which they have sacrificed a lot including time instead of spending it on Twitter, snap chat, Facebook or making the Kardashians billionaires, the only hope I see is to motivate people to try and do something instead expecting to freeload on someone who worked their backsides off. You don't like that bono is rich stop wasting your money on stupid so called music and buy a book. You don't like that Zuckerberg is rich spend less time on Facebook and switch off its notifications and try to do something to improve your standard of living, hell go for a walk.

    When you rig the game, as these cronies do, so you can’t lose, it’s not capitalism.

    Says the man who couldn’t be arsed paying taxes. Taxes him and his fat cat mates don’t want to pay that helps pay for things such as education, healthcare, infrastructure etc. Then he talks about being a crusader against Capitalism? Don’t make me laugh. Let’s not forget his numerous campaigns he and his rich pals call ‘charities’ in which they take money off gullible poor people in Ireland and Britain to give to other poor people because Bono and others couldn’t be arsed spending their own money which they have plenty of!

    No ism is going to solve our problems. The world is in a crisis and it’s a spiritual crisis. Only when looking inward we find the answers. Trust is the most important part of business, relationships and exchange and yet it is the most vulnerable, most abused and violated on every level. Why ? Because of spiritual distortions everywhere, wrong thinking and beliefs. Sick power struggles and distortions of misplaced love. Love as an energy. Business has become a war ground of the worst sort. Politics is the cheerleading squad for it. For what ? Fame, money, fear for love ? Once you have it you start to evn trust less because of the system you built it upwards in, is a deceitful one. It all comes down to education, rehabilitation and revisiting our human nature gone down the wrong path for too long. We can do business without having to buy trust or power through millions in the war chest. Blockchain can do that for us. We can change the educational system once a critical mass awakens to this spiritual reality. That is the core issue of our human problem.

    Interesting that he lives in Monaco as well...no income tax there. A very nice haven so he doesn’t have to pay his fair share at “home”.

    Capitalism is Amoral but Don't touch my fortune, my comfort....i think anyone who is against this Amoral system he should not benefit from it and curse it in the same time, Right? I mean Anyone.

    This individual has millions, live a comfort live , travel around the world 🌎, and has the audacity to talk against capitalism, “ wheel live” ( roda viva) of the world 🌎, seems to me his talk looks like the individual, which after ate “ spit” in the dish in which his food was served
