A question I received: You said that each person should receive only what’s necessary. However, we know that a very small number of people in the world hold most of the world’s capital in their hands. How will these people be able to reject their power in order to share it with everyone else?
My Answer: They shouldn’t reject anything on their own. They are already being forced to reject it. They used to be billionaires, but now they are millionaires. With more time, their capital will become smaller and smaller. They don’t need to reject anything willingly. Each person is suddenly discovering that nothing he had is worth anything.
Where did it all go? In the end, as a consequence of various factors, it will become the property of the society. We will see this happen. This property seems to be bought by countries and governments, but as a result, more and more it is becoming the property of society instead of individuals.
