Living on the edge
We can create a better world, but instead we are loosing ourselves and the entire world.
Today we are loosing our fundamental humanity and the true spirit of love. We are striving blindly to earn more and more money, rushing more and more, getting more and more egoistic and unhappy. How stupid is that?
When the wall broke down in Berlin in 1989, we were delighted to get rid of communism,
but is Capitalism really better? Though we have accepted it, but does it really do any
good for us? Does it do any good for the true values of life? For humanism, loving and
caring, the climate, plants and animals on Earth? Is this kind of materialism that comes
from capitalism good for anything besides those who already has it all?
Can you judge a wise man by the color of his skin…..
then mister, you are a better man than I. There should be reasons enough, to reconsider the way we look at ourselves. We are in crisis to our very neck. We have our democracy, but we are true slaves of work and are consumers in the capitalistic neoliberalistic marketplace. Why is it that we are so afraid of not having enough in our part of the world? We have so much we could easily give half away. We could easily help poor people al around the world. We could easily help all regions with warzones if we just have the diplomatic will and strenght. Why are multinational companies exploiting all the weak nations, such as Africa?
The richest 1% now has as much wealth as the rest of the world combined, according to Oxfam.
It uses data from Credit Suisse from October for the report, which urges leaders meeting in Davos this week to take action on inequality.
Oxfam also calculated that the richest 62 people in the world had as much wealth as the poorest half of the global population.
Let us stand together in the name of humanism, love and justice to bring down those evil forces that exploits us all.
Love and wisdom
