The 20 – 80 rule

20% of fisherman catch 80% of the fish, 20% of the hunters kill 80% of the deer and elk, 20% of the people control 80% of the money, and on and on it go’s. It is called the Praeto Principle because a Italian Economist named Praeto wrote out the principle after researching it for years around the world, and found it to be true in every country and culture in just about every area of life.

Government thinks it is their responsibility to fix the problem, but they always make it worse. Government has an inner force, a spirit, the same spirit since the beginning of government, that spirit desires only to control, not to help or make better.

The beginning strategy of government to create equality is to tax the rich more, much more than the poor, which doesn’t really help the poor. They then enter into a welfare program to help the poorer with food, income, and medical care.

God created a plan and outlined it in the Bible clearly. It began with those who had an abundance helping those who had needs. Most people with plenty have a desire to do that, they are drawn to help those with needs. When Government steps in and takes over the responsibility, those with plenty stop helping. When people help people gratitude is the normal response, when government gives it creates expectation and dependency.

When people with plenty help those with less God blesses them and they make more, help the less fortunate more, and create more business, wealth, and jobs. My Dad grew up during the “depression,” and he often told stories of this very principle happening often.

Franklin Roosevelt introduced the “New Deal” and the modern welfare system was born, and the problem of poverty has increased every year since.

Here is God’s plan;

2 Corinthians 8:14-15 at this present time your abundance being a supply for their need, so that their abundance also may become a supply for your need, that there may be equality; as it is written, “He who gathered much did not have too much, and he who gathered little had no lack.”

Proverbs 22:9 He who is generous will be blessed,
For he gives some of his food to the poor.

Proverbs 19:17 One who is gracious to a poor man lends to the Lord, And He will repay him for his good deed.

Proverbs 14:31 He who oppresses the poor taunts his Maker, But he who is gracious to the needy honors Him.

Luke 6:38 Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure—pressed down, shaken together, and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return.”
