The Anomaly

It is a fact that 1% of the population in the world holds the majority of the wealth.
In probability distribution wealth should be evenly distributed thus on graph it suppose to be a normal curve as below:

X- axis will be the level of how wealthy a person is while Y axis is the number of people. Naturally, the nature of the universe, the representation wealth should be as depict in a form of a bell curve. The left represent the outliers for the extremely poor. The other end, for the rich. However, as for now, it is not the case.
Current situation is depicted as below:
The number of poor is almost as much or if not more than the middle class. Some factors must have cause the disturbance of this "normal distribution" that systematically direct the flow of the wealth to that 1 percent of people.

Something to ponder on this "unnatural" occurrence.

The story of a Man

Alone was a man sat in a forest. Drown in sadness. Animals came to him and said, "We do not want to see you sad. Ask us for whatever you wish and you shall have it". The man said, "I want to have a good sight". Eagle replied, "You shall have mine". The man said, "I want to be strong". Elephant said, "You shall be strong like mine". Then the man said, "I have long to know the secrets of the earth". The serpent replied, "I will show them to you". It went to all the other animals. When the man had all the gifts that they(the animals) could give, he left. Then the owl said to the other animals. Now the man knows much and able to do so many things. The deer said, "The man has all that he needs, now his sadness will stop". The owl said, "No.... I saw a hole in man, deep like a hunger he will never fill, it is what make him sad and what makes him want. He will go on taking and taking until the day the world say: I am no more and I have nothing left to give you".

Power, fame, money, technologies, stature...
