T = Theft
R = Rent
I = Interest
P = Profit
Up = Unequal-pay for paid work
Using the 2:10:88 alternative to the Occupy imposition/assertion, 'We are the 99%!':
The 2% (The Theives that have stolen the world's (God-given) economic resources) demand Rent, Interest and Profits from 'us', the 88%.
Hence the slogans: 'Capitalism js a RIP-off', 'Capitalism RIP' and 'Let's get RID of Capitalism' (where the D in RID stands for Dividends: Profits 'paid' to Shareholders).
Finally, the 2% allow their Praetorian Guard to Tax (another entry discussion point into the letter T) 'us', the 88%, so that they (the 10%, and their families) are 'paid'/take higher Unequal-pay, Perks (Perquisities: non-money extras: like Company Cars, free health care, etc) and Pensions.
Two ps's, perhaps:
1) 'We', the 88%, are forced to do the D-jobs:
= Dirty, Dangerous, Degrading, Dispiriting, Drudgery, etc.
While the 10%, (The 2%'s Praetorian Guard = their 'Protectors'), do the P-jobs:
= Propagandists, Popes, Prelates, Publishers, Pimps, Professors, Policemen, Prison Guards, etc:
All of whom wield John Kenneth Galbraith's three Power Mechanisms*:
Condign Power, Compensatory Power, Conditioned Power.
Ie, the Stick, the Carrot and 'Your' telly. Or, Bullying, Bribery and Brainwashing.
* from his book 'The Anatomy of Power'.
2) The 'God-given Economic Resources' that, when stolen, provide the four RIPUp incomes are:
Rent: The Theft of Land provides Rent
(eg the Theft of England in 1066 of of north America in the 17th, 18th and 19th Centuries)
Interest: The Theft of The Law provides Interest
(eg Henry VIII's 'legalisation', for the first time in England, of usury in 1545)
Profit: The Theft of Knowledge provides Profit
( Ie the history of for-profit trade, commerce and industry)
Unequal-pay for work: The Theft of Position provides Unequal-pay for work
(ie the bosses(the 10%) 'deserve' more than the oiks ('us', the 88%)).
Hope this helps!
And thanks, Gianne, for prompting this reprise!
