There is lots of whining and moaning about the economy….maybe there should be some changes…..
The world is in the grips of capitalism…..but it is not the capitalism of Adam Smith….this is a system that rewards corruption and theft not hard work…..
People born in poverty will remain is poverty….with very few exceptions.
Time for the planet to work on a new economic model that will benefit all residents of this planet…..not the corrupt few.
We live in ominously dangerous times. The world capitalist system — having fueled colonialism, imperialism and the constant intensification of labor power exploitation for roughly 500 years — now threatens the planet with an ecological collapse of unprecedented proportions. Unsustainable resource exploitation, water pollution (the transformation of lakes, rivers and oceans into garbage dumps) and massive economic inequality are at the root of the possibly irreversible collapse of industrial civilization. Meanwhile, however, too many of us remain caught up in abstract and ahistorical predictions of collapse that fail to offer an alternative realistic vision of a future socio-economic order.
Simultaneously, the phenomenon of global warming, driven mainly by the dynamics and contradictions of a fossil-based economy, has prepared the soil for the eruption of new sources of conflict with the manifestation of historically unique destabilizing social forces. Climate change directly threatens billions of people and most other beings — besides the occasional cockroach, diadem or tardigrade — with outright extinction brought on by droughts, floods and other “natural” disasters.
This may sound like a dream….but it could work….but that would require the voter to make up their tiny minds that change is good and change is necessary.
I am talking about real change and not the frail crap handed out at a political rally….change will only come through hard work and determination….and right now the American people have neither.
