Billionaires are Cancer of Society


The number of people with cancer in a given society grows proportionally to the number of new billionaires in that society. The more billionaires, the more people with cancer.

Cancer is a disease involving unregulated growth of some cells in the human body. The excessive and unregulated growth of few cells slowly invades nearby parts of the body, damaging them, and, if not stopped, spreads to more distant parts of the body using the 2 main routes of vital nutrients distribution in the body: the lymphatic system and the bloodstream.

Society is like any living organism. Its blood should flow into all parts at any given time for the whole body to stay healthy.

When the blood comes to the heart, the heart does not block it there, accumulate more of it in order to become bloodinaire.

When the blood comes to the brain, the brain doesn’t steal a part of the blood, and design schemes to keep more of it to itself because it’s much clever, in order to become bloodinaire.

When the blood comes to the eyes, the eyes don’t save a part of the blood for the future, and wish to become bloodinaires by saving more and more of the blood every time it flows trough them.

When the blood comes to the lungs, the lungs after enriching it with new oxygen don’t apply a tax or make a cut or a kill in order to become bloodinaires.

Imagine a body where each organism would start keeping part of the blood to itself permanently each time the blood flows through them. That body will stop functioning correctly, causing suffering for all parts, and dies prematurely.

Now imagine the  situation where the various organisms starting a “dick measurement contest” of “Who keeps the most blood possible?”

You end up with a society like we now have.

Billionaires are cancers of society because they act exactly like those organisms which start keeping and accumulate the vital fluid necessary for the whole body to function to themselves. They have built sophisticated schemes to cheat, steal, exploit, restrict and keep any wealth in their sight to themselves, no matter what would be the consequences on the whole society.

According to a recent report by Oxfam, the combined wealth of the 85 richest people in the world is equal to the wealth of the poorest 3.5 billion people, which mean half of humanity.


“Growth for the sake of growth is the ideology of the cancer cell.”  wrote Edward Abbey, the 70s american environmentalist activist.

To be a billionaire means you did not give enough away.

Because, No single human being needs a billion dollars to have a good life.


Money is the equivalent of stored labor, or stored resources. And, everybody knows that billionaires deserve their massive wealth since they work a billion times harder than everybody else.


The truth is that billionaires are simply motivated by megalomania and super ego, and along the way they claim it’s about a purpose, solving problems, making the world a better place, blablabla!

Isn’t money considered to be more of a byproduct of growing a successful business and not a goal?

In a wannabe  billionnaire or millionaire world, the most important purposes of humanity, the greatest challenges the world currently faces are completely left out: ending poverty, providing clean water, sustainable energy, basic healthcare for all, education, conflict resolution, etc. Because these problems are not the most profitable problems, and solving them does not produce billionaires.

From what I can see, to become billionaire you have to have absolutely no conscience, to be close to a psychopath. You have to be able to flat face lie to people, steal from people, destroy lives and use people like toilet paper to be flushed away.

Many people aren’t rich because they honestly cannot screw someone over so completely that it destroys their lives and still sleep at night. The 99% aren’t there because they want to be there, most are hard working people trying to build a safer world for their loved ones.

I am not saying billionaires have not earned the right to be wealthy. What,  I am saying is No single human being needs a billion dollars. To be a billionaire means you did not give enough away.

Wealth creation is a collective act, not a heroic achievement; which means the wealth should be shared in an a manner that does not deny adequate wages for the hard work of employees.


Money is like blood. If it is flowing freely, the economy is healthy. If the money builds like a blood clot among the few, the economy will have a stroke and collapse. Profit is natural, but HOW MUCH profit is justifiable? what we see is sellers taking from those who do not have, and that is not right.

Making it to Forbes list of billionaires, instead being a matter of glory should be a case for shame, because contrary to all appearance those people are master of deception, worst than the most dangerous criminal in your neighborhood.

It’s very sad that these men think that amassing the most wealth is what is important, rather than doing the most good. 30,000 children die every day from preventable causes. And yet the most important item on the agenda of the rich is …making more money.

It’s a moral imperative that we create incentives for entrepreneurs to solve these “low-profit high-purpose” problems.

When avarice would declared a mental illness and included in the medical dictionary of mental disorders, maybe then we can get our priorities straight, but until then we’ll suffer these fools.

A story said:

“There was a rich man who was dressed in purple and fine linen and lived in luxury every day. At his gate was laid a beggar named Lazarus, covered with sores and longing to eat what fell from the rich man’s table. Even the dogs came and licked his sores.

“The time came when the beggar died and the angels carried him to Abraham’s side. The rich man also died and was buried. In Hades, where he was in torment, he looked up and saw Abraham far away, with Lazarus by his side. So he called to him, ‘Father Abraham, have pity on me and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, because I am in agony in this fire.’

“But Abraham replied, ‘Son, remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, while Lazarus received bad things, but now he is comforted here and you are in agony. And besides all this, between us and you a great chasm has been set in place, so that those who want to go from here to you cannot, nor can anyone cross over from there to us.’

“He answered, ‘Then I beg you, father, send Lazarus to my family, for I have five brothers. Let him warn them, so that they will not also come to this place of torment.’

“Abraham replied, ‘They have Moses and the Prophets; let them listen to them.’

“‘No, father Abraham,’ he said, ‘but if someone from the dead goes to them, they will repent.’

“He said to him, ‘If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, they will not be convinced even if someone rises from the dead.’”

Some of the psychopaths billionaire started listening by doing humanitarian actions. The hell still is they become billionaires by being a cut-throat capitalist. After becoming billionaires, they transformed into angel humanitarians.


In a healthy world, we don’t need the humiliation of public humanitarianism.

The problem is not becoming billionaire, the problem is keeping and accumulating the money till you become billionaire  the money. That’s the psychopathic part.

Accidental billionaires like J.K. Rowling, are giving the example when she lost voluntary her title of billionaire.

Losing your billionaire status is like earning a higher badge of fame! Because Anyone who celebrates billionaires, Celebrates Cancer!


“Occasionally people accuse me of being anti-rich. I’m not anti-rich. Being rich is not inherently bad. I’m anti-parasitical crony capitalist rentier.

The rich people that actually make a social contribution (paying their taxes, philanthropy, paying their workers a decent wage …) are deserving of praise, especially given that the crony capitalist system is clearly set up to reward the most ruthlessly self-interested in society (rentiers, tax-dodgers, reckless speculators, price fixers, Tory party donors, market riggers, money launderers …).” J.K. Rowling

    Hello Mawanu! Yet another piece of insightful information.The tone of your write up typically reveals your compassion toward the poor and a your overall morality and i love that.However brother you fail to understand that most of these billionaires are die-hard satanists who have no iota of genuine love toward their fellow man.Morals and christian values of being your brother’s keeper mean nothing to them and the commonsense you passionately delivered in your message would not cut much mustard with them!.Most of these billionaires are not illiterates.On they contrary they are those who have received one of the finest education our society can they actually know what they are doing and are perfectly knowledgeable about their negative impact of society.So no amount of reasonable talk can change them.It is left for them to decide in their hearts and how can they decide to do good when there is no genuine love in their hearts.They dole out funds as philanthropists but make sure they recuperate the last dime through the IRS and some use the humanitarian stuff as a front to evade taxes, launder funds and commit all sorts of unthinkable fudiciary and fiscal crimes.It’s really not worth it!
    Beyond the individual greed of some of these billionaires, there is a corporate and well organized ruse to maintain humans captive in the abyss of financial penury.I don’t know if names like Rothchild ring a bell in your mind? ever heard about the illuminati conspiracy? creation of a new world order? Through their clout on the financial dynamics of the worlds richest nations, they practically dictate their interests to the executive and legislative powers of the so called great nations to feed their capitalist greed, while keeping the world’s people in bondage. Bloodshed, wars,corporate exploitation of the poor masses do not mollify their sworn obduration.Mere reasoning and proposal of good policies do not move these people.It will take the grace of God and concerted effort of good-willed men to make any sustainable change!
    That said, let me come back to your analogy of the society to the to the coordination and systematic coexistence of different parts of human body.While the isolated picture of cancer you painted depicts the billionaire some how, I fear that the whole analogy is idealistic given thew forces of socialism and capitalism that represent the real state of affairs in our world.How dare you even preach communal coexistence to diehard capitalists in the US? they can never buy that because that is what their nation was built on and that is what they believe their nation would continue to succeed with.It is a herculean task to talk them out of that.On the flip side, communism is not necessarily the answer.Though it semantically agrees with your pattern of the human body, we all know that it is a failure in practical terms because unlike the body parts that are already programmed by God to function in self-lessness and interdependence, a cummunist economy is run by humans who have the choice to be greedy or not to be greedy.And as we know, most tend to be greedy and so those who hold the strings of such system will continue to be richer than the commoners in the system.One can also argue that such a system(communist) can encourage laziness as the people know that they will have food, healthcare,housing, and live comfortably because the system is catering for that whether they work or not!
    Attempting to operate the two systems so that the shortfalls of one are effaced by the benefits of the other will not help matters.
    The solution lies in the simple moral lesson of being your brother’s keeper.keep the stories coming brother.
