Let us just strip the wealthy of their wealth and divide it among ourselves!
“We are the people. We have the numbers. We have the guns. We have the power! Let us just strip the wealthy of their wealth and divide it among ourselves!”
The above idea sounds very rough and blunt. People don’t usually get that blunt. Not in modern civilized society. But there are different ways of saying things. Some ways are less blunt than others. There are some ideas that have caught fire and become very fashionable all over the entire world in the last couple hundred years that amount to essentially the above. You can guess what I mean: the ideas of Communism and Socialism. It is just the technique and manner of doing it that varies. It happened in Russia, China, Cambodia, Cuba and many other countries. And these ideas are the “in thing” in the universities of America. The idea may be all dressed up with a lot of philosophy, theory, rationalization, but it all amounts to something very simple. Through the ages this world has had its few rich and multitudes of poor. Only in our modern day has capitalism and industrialization raised the poor up to a level of affluence. It is interesting that such an idea would have arisen in the wealthy part of the world (Europe). It does sound very much like envy of the rich doesn’t it?
Do you think that the same idea might have occurred to the masses of poor in different countries of ancient times? With power in the hands of a king and an aristocracy they probably wouldn’t have given such an idea serious consideration. But a democracy is different. In a democracy the power is in the hands of the people. In a democracy such an idea becomes workable.
Nothing is new in this world. Everything has been thought of and done before. The idea of people banding together and robbing others is not new. It is as old as time itself.
