If you are poor now, my friend, then you’ll stay poor.
These days only the rich get even more.
Semper pauper eris, si pauper es, Aeimiliane.
dantur opes nullis nunc nisi divitibus (ack: Martial/The Epigrams-pub.Penguin Classics-tr.James Michie)
As it was in the first-century Rome as true even these times.
It is true under democracy or any crazy system of political ideology man has devised. It would seem the moment the archangel announced ‘liberty’ man just took it to mean ‘money!’In India they have been mouthing platitudes while kickbacks kept filling the pockets of powers that be. In the US their fine art of making money gave capitalism a new synonym-crapitalism.
