Capitalism does not permit an even flow of economic resources. With this system, a small privileged few are rich beyond conscience, and almost all others are doomed to be poor at some level. That’s the way the system works. And since we know that the system will not change the rules, we are going to have to change the system. (Martin Luther King Jnr.)
The corrupt Citigroup arrogantly stated yet again in another report in 2006 that “The rich are so rich that their behavior – be it negative savings, or just very low consumption of oil as a % of their income – overwhelms that of the ‘average’ consumer.”
As the ship of plutonomy sails along nicely for the rich, it leaves in its wake a world of debt, poverty, hunger, economic inequality, and misery for billions of people.
We clearly need a paradigm shift from the current sytem of orthodox capitalism to a monetary system of economic justice based on kindness, equality and compassion because…
Through obscene greed, the plutocrats and corporatocrats also shamelessly exploit our non-human animal friends, the world’s resources, the environment and the ecosystems – all for their lust and accumulation of even greater wealth.
Millions of innocent children, the victims of an economic idealogy based on greed.
Innocent children who never got the chance to fulfill their dreams and ambitions – that’s if they even had the chance to dream of a better life whilst they hungered for where their next grain of rice was coming from.
And, furthermore, an incompassionate economic ideology that places a ‘bounty’ on the head of EVERY non-human animal on the planet.
