The Rotten Current World Leadership:

With chaos, confusion, violence, more and more guns, more and more bombs, death, destruction, illnesses, illiteracy, insecurity, poverty, hunger, deprivation, suicides pornography, rape, murder, fornication, rampant corruption, loot, plunder, back braking taxation, illegitimate wars and disputes, illegal and illegitimate territorial occupations and expulsion of legitimate citizens on ethnic grounds , waste of hard earned public money in irregular activities, with necessities of life inaccessible to the down trodden wage earners , the current world leadership is rotten and must at least be replaced if not publicly hanged. .It is at the same time not at all self sustainable. Its time has come to an end. The rascals kill a ten million or so from tobacco smoking and twice as much from diseases which should have been eradicated.

What we do not have in today's world to make our lives heavenly with so much surplus in resources, production capacity, technological advancement, information technology and a lot more conveniences for development and advancement plus yet un-tapped abundant natural resources. but It is not 'WHAT YOU HAVE’ that makes great nations and civilizations but ' WHAT YOU DO WITH WHAT YOU HAVE ' surely does.

But the World has become hostage in the hands of a few unscrupulous, utterly corrupt and criminal elements and their collaborators in vested interests, the vested interests in arms, energy, oil, tobacco, finance, politics and the rest.

Wars must be fought to keep the wheels of arms industry running and no matter if tobacco continues to kill over six millions every year, all under the patronage of world's Executive / Judiciary.

Twice as many, these world managers, watch dying from diseases which are preventable. The causalities such as food shortages, famines and environmental disorders are over and above.

'The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing.'—Albert Einstein.




Rich People Who Will Not Leave Their Wealth to Their Children:

Here are 15 people who refuse to fund the lavish lifestyle of their children, even if such act is definitely within their means.

While some people may raise their eyebrows at people who give out their money to charities instead of their children, others also applaud those who do. They see the act as a selfless way to enable their children to grow and stand on their own feat

Warren Buffett has already pledged to give 99% of his fortune away. The only question is when he will give it away, since it could be either during his lifetime or when he dies. There has already been 83% of his wealth pledged with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, where he also serves as the foundation’s trustee. He is also part of the Giving Pledge, together with Bill Gates, a campaign that encourages wealthy people to donate their fortunes to the charity. The wealthy investor, and well-known philanthropist has been known to say that he wants to give his kids “just enough so that they would feel that they could do anything, but not so much that they feel like doing nothing.”

Pierre Omidyar became a billionaire at the early age of 31 years old. The eBay founder made sure that it his legacy to donate a large part of his fortune to the less fortunate people, instead of just giving it to his three children. He has already signed as a donor with Gates’ and Buffett’s Giving Pledge in 2010. He also continuously gives eBay shares to the Omidyar Network, his own investment firm that caters to his philanthropic endeavors. The Omidyar spouses are also the most generous private donors to fight the human trafficking industry.

Michael Bloomberg has a net worth of $19.5 million and he’s obviously more than financially stable. He has donated millions of dollars to various charities and foundations. Some of which are the Johns Hopkins University, the Carnegie Corporation, and many other non-profit organizations. In signing with the Giving Pledge, he wrote that nearly all of his net worth will be given away in the years ahead, or left to his foundation.

As the bassist for one of the best-selling American bands of all time, Gene Simmons has made his fortune on his own. He was born in Israel, moved to Queens, and ended up with a band that has 28 gold records for the last decades. Simmons has two children, and he wants them to be self-made, as well. He said in an interview that the children are going to be taken care off, but they will not be rich just because of Simmons’ money. He believes that the kids should also be forced to get up, go out and work.

As the richest woman in Australia, it sounds unusual for us to hear that Gina Rinehart wants her children out of their inheritance. Court documents showed that Rinehart doesn’t think her children are fit to manage the family business and the family’s wealth. She claims that none of the children have the requisite skill, judgment or work ethic to administer a trust as part of the growing HPPL Group.

America’s richest man is worth billions, but he isn’t keeping them for his kids. The Gates founded the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in 1994. Today, it has assets of about $37 billion dollars. Likewise, they also have the Giving Pledge, wherein they encourage other wealthy people to pledge their fortune to the charity.

In 2011, Jackie Chan announced that he will give away half of his fortune to charity when he dies. He even said that he wasn’t planning to leave to his son the millions that he has made as a movie star. Chan said that if Jaycee (his son) is capable, he could make his own money. If he is not capable, then he will just be wasting Chan’s money.

Growing up in New Jersey to Russian immigrant parents, Bernard Marcusstarted Home Depot. With a net worth of $1.5 billion, he doesn’t have plans to leave his fortune to his kids, for their own good. He plans to give the majority of his stock shares with Home Depot to The Marcus Foundation, for the benefit of better education and for the handicapped.

Chuck Feeney co-founded the Duty-Free Shoppers Groups, and transferred all his billions to the Atlantic Philanthropies. He taught his children the value of money, letting them use payphones, letting them work during breaks, and letting them work through college.

Nigella Lawson came from a wealthy family, apart from her being a millionaire as a best-selling author and TV personality. She believes that she doesn’t want to give her two children the same wealthy background advantage. She wanted that her children have no financial security because she believes that not having to earn money ruins people.

Ted Turner accumulated his fortune through CNN and TBS, and he has literally given billions to various foundations. He has five children from three marriages, but he doesn’t want to give them big inheritances. He once said that when he dies, he just wants enough money to cover funeral expenses
