If you’re a human being who appreciates the finer things in life, like food and shelter, you might have noticed that things have been getting pretty dystopian. No, it’s no recent development, but it seems like upcoming elections and opportunities for reform in several countries are contributing to a wave of vocal anti-capitalism. Because when technology and productivity just keep improving, but corporations and their owners aren’t letting it translate to benefits for the people who are putting in most of their waking hours to keep business running, people are right to start questioning things. Some say that young people are just entitled and want to have it better than previous generations, while others say… well, why wouldn’t we want today’s workers to have it better than previous generations? Isn’t that how human progress works?

Here’s a collection of anti-capitalist tweets to get you fired up, make you laugh (because sometimes we have to laugh, or else we’ll cry) and give you some ideas to mull over with your coworkers (wink, wink, nudge, nudge).

Jeff 'Wonky Eye' Bezos is a scrouge on society. He lives in a vacuum. I doubt that he has any sort of empathy.

Another tip: adding a charity donation to your total at the grocery store checkout counter may just be paying for the corporation’s donation that they can use to receive tax deductions. If you’re willing and able to donate to charity, research a cause you’d like to contribute to at home and tell the cashier you prefer to donate directly.

One of the most prominent targets of vitriol is the world’s richest person, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, whose $100 billion in wealth and hourly income of over 8 million dollars are more than many say one could even reasonably find a use for.

Critics say it's unlikely he’s working 500,000 times harder than the employees rushing to meet digitally-tracked speed requirements and accumulating chronic injuries in Amazon packing centers for $15 an hour (and that’s considered a good minimum salary in the US).

Meanwhile, over in the UK, statistics show the average CEO getting 90 times as much income as their lowest-paid workers, and the richest 10% of society owning two-thirds of all wealth.

"Small" amounts are better than none, but I agree: how is it generous to donate 1.000.000 dollars when your last movies' fee was 40.000.000? It's like me giving 50 bucks from my salary (which I do monthly) and bragging about it.

Christmas Valentina writes about her dystopian fantasy which has absolutely no credibility, but users on Bored Panda give upvotes as if it were real and believable.

A recurring hashtag reads #TaxTheRich, which is probably a more politically sound approach, if not less catchy or satisfying, than old classics like #EatTheRich or #BeheadTheRich.

And where Bob Cratchit, the epitome of poverty, makes $10,000 a year more in today's money than a full-time worker on US minimum wage.

Also, they say that any alternative is communist but happily maintain their strong business connections with a communist dictatorship.

If you tax him at 90% he has no motivation to keep earning that much and supporting everyone else. Then that whole system collapses.

The problem shown by the ecological food pyramid is it's not possible to sustain a very large population of meat eaters, and the human population quadrupled in the past century. Economic growth comes from natural resources availability, which is being wasted by raising animals for slaughter unnecessarily. A redistribution of wealth without reducing our trophic value would fund increased demand for resource consumption, which would become a disaster because of nature's inability to rebound enough.

I don't know about the word wealthphobic but the word afluenza is being used in the UK. As far as I can tell it means that the young adult children of rich people are not to blame for their lack of empathy, selfishness and general shitty behaviour because they are just too privileged to be expected to understand or care about others around them. Don't quote me on this but I believe that the first time it was used was by a lawyer representing a rich young man who was riding his expensive sports bike very fast on a pavement. It didn't have brakes. He shouted to the young mother to get out of his way but when she didn't react fast enough he ran her over and killed her. He showed no remorse during the trial but it's not his fault, he doesn't understand that killing is wrong because his daddy's rich. Afluenza! Rant over!

Communism proscribes a system of "self-criticism," which is arguably much worse than rating each other.
