This morning I opened my usual news sites and two articles stood out. The articles were about two kinds of “refugees”.
One of the stinking greedy rich kind and one of the poor refugee dying in a boat accident kind.
Here are two tales on both ends of the wealth spectrum:
“Sir” Richard Branson leaves Britain for tax reasons. He sold his Mansion for a sweetheart price to his two children who happen to be part if the inner royal circle. No doubt to spend the coming economic collapse in the pampered luxury of his paradise Island while tens of thousands are dying trying to get to Europe from Northern Africa where as a result of amongst others Richard Branson’s Banking machinations the Collapse is already in full swing.
What strikes me as the most cruel in all of this is that While Richard Branson get’s to enjoy paradise on earth without having to pay taxes or face the consequences of his pathological behavior and is free to roam the planet in his usual polluting high cost of living manner the refugees who have absolutely no choice but to move lest they be killed or die of starvation face increased patrolling to stop them from going to a place where they hop to be able to make a very, very modest living to support them and their families.
