The 1% are the basic cause of much of the misery in the world because they have the power and the money to implement the paradigm that money dominates decisions and not the idea that all people have the same status. When the money paradigm gets less influence greed and other money related behaviour as corruption and big crime starts to disappear. The motivation to amass money withers away. Different decisions are taken by putting people in first place. When everyone is considered having the same status, the problem of the ten million kids who die each year before they are five years old is tackled at once. In the present money dominated society these kids are unimportant, they do not contribute anything to the wallets of the super-rich.
