I wonder about our priorities. I am not the only one, almost anyone who sees the world of politics wonders to. It seems we are saddled with a system that is antithetical to ethics and nature. It exploits to make more money and the least ethical it is the greater the profits that can be made.
No one seems capable of seeing the hideous personality of capitalism because it gives them phones and movies and warmth in winter. But the best way to describe its depravity at present would be this.
In my lifetime, and possibly for at least the past 100 years, there has been the money within the systems to give every human being on earth access to fresh, clean water, a home and enough food to eat. I cannot even count the millions who have died from hunger, water borne diseases and lack of shelter in that time. There is the absolute cost of individuals making and keeping money, and not one of us has clean hands.
