I'm not a communist nor a socialist, but I do believe that a free market economy - espoused by people like Margaret Thatcher, Ronald Reagan, David Cameron and Milton Friedman - only benefits the very rich and perpetuates the poverty of most. I also believe that such an economy is propped up by marketing and manufacturing that encourages waste, promises a better life with a bigger TV and keeps people on a work/purchase/work treadmill that makes them believe that possessions are what makes you happy. We are docile because we spend all our time working and haven't the energy or the information to get angry, to protest the inequity and to make change. Hopefully, this kind of knowledge will stir some kind of revolutionary sentiment.
So, we need to start spreading the word, stop buying into mass-consumption (that's a gravy train that's going to end at some point), and think about ways we can aim for something like that ideal distribution of wealth. Demanding that governments tax big corporations appropriately is a good start. Refusing to buy cheap, environmentally unfriendly clothing is another. Learning where your products come from, how they're manufactured and brought to your door is also essential. Be BINORACLEs, all of you!
Sorry to get political on your ass, but that's how it is.
