Any Obligations Deferred in Bridging Income Inequality Will Compound Global Security
As the super rich, the powerful, the captains of industry, the politicians and the representatives of humanity ascend an Alp, in Switzerland to meet at the World Economic Forum(WEF) tomorrow, those with the means to effect beneficial social, political and economic change, should be mindful that any deferral of the obligations to bridging the income inequality gap will have the potential to compound and exacerbate global security.
In other words, global security can no longer bear extravagant ideas and written polices to change and to ameliorate the living conditions of 99 percent of the world's population that are penned to be phased in over many decades, while in the mean time, the rich get wealthier and the poor get poorer. Fragile security conditions mandate that actual and material change come forthwith.
Events across the Levant and the Middle East, across the Sahel and Africa, across Europe, Asia and the Americas, reveal stark violent episodes in lieu of a mass amelioration of the living standards and inequalities facing 99 percent of the world's population.
Therefore at tomorrow's "Mastering the 4th Industrial Revolution" summit of the WEF in Davos, Switzerland, the privileged invitees could formulate the ways and the means by which this high technological era could effectively bridge the global income inequality gap, or they could run the gauntlet of inducing an incubating social revolution by the masses.
