    Capitalist colonialist dogs, corrupting our pure and innocent nascent democracy. I demand reparations.

  • Peter Holmes says:

    The cartoon displays the ignorance of the cartoonist on at least three counts. Firstly, the majority of the “World’s richest men” earned their wealth through hard work, inspirational and innovative ideas, and the vision and courage to implement these. Secondly, they don’t sit on bags of disposable cash; they own shares in the companies they founded and, thirdly, they have provided the engine for growth, prosperity and employment both in and outside their own countries. There would be many more poor if it were not for these men, and let’s not forget the philanthropic vision of many of them.
