Why is life difficult for so many and luxury for so few?

Life is very difficult for most people. I need to know why?
Why some people are deeply living in luxury and others in deep poverty?

Because a few, that is 0.01%, have access to Capital to launch a new business successfully, via their insider connections to VCs and Wall Street Billionaire class. While 99%+ plus have no such connections and consequently no such access to capital. And instead their only connection to capital is to watch Shark Tank where a few Wall Street Billionaires living in life of luxury doll out cash to few lucky enough to get on Shark tank. So it is all about those whom have access to capital who can then live in luxury and those who do not and hence cannot.

Yes, and the 0.01% whom have access to Billions of Dollars on a drop of a Hat, vs rest of us whom have to go to a Bank and grub for couple of $100K if even that, this same 0.01% controls the Main Stream Media too, as they of course control the Ultra right-wing Media too, and call any attempt to balance this imbalance to be: "Socialism" and "Class warfare" etc non-sense and the low educated People fall for this Mega SCAM! So yes.

Luxury is Just Another Weakness.

Before getting too far into anything here, let's get super clear about what we're talking about. Here is a list of some basic and not-so-basic luxuries.

Heated toilet seats
Servants cooking and cleaning for us (restaurants)
Getting places without using our feet (cars)
Customized, on-demand entertainment (internet)
Massive houses
Boats
Becoming intoxicated on anything (alcohol and drugs)
Other people hunting food for us
Expensive clothing
Jewellery

1st, what is your point by that list!
2nd, as others have well noted: how can life not be so difficult for so many and luxury for so few, when the Wall Street Billionaire class behind Trump and Obama can raise $1-Billion at a drop of a Hat for whatever venture and new business they want, whereas the 99.9999% has no access to any such funds and we are lucky if we can borrow a relatively pathetic $200K for a new business and ususally to do so have to put our House as collateral. HOW?

What we NEED and what we WANT are two different things. We need very little to survive. We want many things and that is where greed plays in and some people like trump and other billion and millionaires have to much money. So much so that they could never spend it all in their lifetime. So they need to share it.

I think we are talking about 2 different things. I am talking about Capital, funding, needed to make a business a success. Which funding then of course determines ones success or failure rates.

I know what you are talking about verichip. What you are describing is a want. You want to make your business succeed. But maybe you need to do something else if it doesn't. Life is one of ups and downs and you need to learn to ride them out. But the extremely wealthy never learned how to ride out ups and downs. They selfish by nature and if they were to lose it all they would die.

Interesting points on all sides. It seems that we become unhappy with our lives when we compare to others.

We are not on the same level of spiritual development. That is why some will only spend this life to have fun, while others are working on their spiritual development in their existence.

I think, because society has, in general, confused what is more beneficial to all. A few comparisons and examples are; sports players salaries to teachers salaries, construction workers salaries to ceo's, general labor salaries to executives. Government directives are NOT geared toward compassion for citizens, but instead toward monetary gain for self.

Well when humans start acting like humans and not like self centered animals who delight in watching other humans starve to death and seeing children ripped from their mothers then maybe we won't need government interference. Until then God has created laws for a reason.

The real FACTS: Because the Wall Street class: Google, Facebook, WalMart, etc. have access to 100s of Millions of Dollars, even Billions of Dollars, by just calling their VC Wall Street investment banker buddies. Whereas the Middle class, small businesses, the 99.99%, has access to No such funding. Hence the Wall Street class keep dominating one business after another, so that Wall Street class keeps getting richer while the rest, aka Small businesses, are suffocated for lack of capital.

I tell you the only vehicle we small businesses have in growing without the connections with the VC Wall Street class and hence without Billions of Dollars of funding from the Wall Street class, is this Anoox non-profit search engine & social network where we on Main Street are put above Wall Street. Because by coming together in the Billions, we are in fact richer than the Billionaires on Wall Street. So I hope you all grasp these hard facts and support this Anoox for if it is supporting us.

This is being done on purpose. The republican party decided that in a pure capitalistic society there is no middle class just poor and rich. So unless you want your lot to be tossed in with the poor maybe it is time to switch sides.

The simple answer is 'choices'. If people make wise choices, are frugal, and save more than they spend when first entering the adult world, they will have a more comfortable life than those who don't. I have been poor my whole life: but I have chosen employment in the service industries. Nursing, teaching, and child care. My more wealthy friends chose employment in business and management.
Have you ever noticed that many people living in poverty tend to blame others for their situation? Blame gets you nowhere. Those of us who come from a poor background (I grew up as a share croppers daughter, barefoot in a tobacco field) must work harder and spend wisely to pull ourselves out of poverty. No one is going to do it for us. It is all about our choices. Chose wisely.

There is truth to that too. Of course. That is some people make bad choices. But how about those that make good choices but do not gave access to VC Wall Street 100 Million Series B financing and Billions and Billions going public funding? How about that? That is if you are not in the VC Wall Street Cabal only choice for funding you have is to borrow against your House, while VC Wall Street can get 100s of Millions and Billions, how are we the 99.999% to compete against that?

Christ said the poor you will have with you always Matthew 26:11. A woman who was poor used a jar of expensive perfume probably made by her to sell for money on Christ and people got angry with her for wasting it and He defended her. So tell me again how the poor are usually always blaming others for being poor? No it is others who do the blaming. People still do the same thing today point fingers at the poor and judge them.

GurdMullsr, why is it necessary to compete with VC Wall Street? If we have food, clothing, and shelter and are comfortable, why is luxury or most than enough necessary? Comparing what we have with those who have more abundance will only serve to make one miserable.

Sherry40: There are some who are poor due to their own poor choices.

SawSheila it is not our place to judge anyone but It is obvious that the greed of the rich is causing the imbalance in finances everywhere not the poor. You can't fill a lake with rain if the clouds refuse to let the rain fall the same goes for money with the rich. It is the poor that make the economy run because they spend the money not the rest who hoard the money and refuse to spend it. Not spending money is what slows it down and causes jobs to be lost.

Like it or not the poor are actually the most important piece in a economy.

I don't understand how it is the poor who are spending money and boosting the economy when they don't have money to spend without going into debt. I make and sell bags and totes to supplement my social security. Even though my prices are low, the poor are not purchasing my bags, the wealthy are. BTW- my statement that people are poor because of their choices is not a judgement on them. I have been poor most of my life and it was because of choices that I made.

Giving them money boots the economy starving them and not giving them money to spend starves the economy as well. Yes some middle class women might be buying your things but the poor spend it faster then the other two classes.

I tell you thank God for this Anoox site since it is just about one of the most reliable sources for connecting us Small businesses with new clients and sales.
