The future does not look good. Things are dark. Another financial crisis and economic collapse are just around the corner. There should not be this many this much unemployment and underemployment, this much homelessness, hunger, poverty, this ever widening gap between the income and wealth of the rich and everyone else. Another World War is increasingly possible while innumerable smaller wars proliferate. The wealthy control the world. There are no genuine democracies in the world, only oligarchies and plutocracies.
The capitalist class has never had it better. Never in recorded history has this class had higher income and wealth compared to the average working family. Oxfam reported that the richest 50% of the people own over 99% of the world’s wealth, the richest 1% of the world’s population hold over 50% of the world’s wealth, and the richest 62 people in the world has as much wealth as the poorest half of the global population, about 3.6 billion people. Yet, 32,000 children die around the world every day from hunger and hunger-related diseases. They die because their parents do not have enough money to feed them a nourishing diet. The ruling class has brought the world to a lamentable state. Make no mistake about it, the wealthy class and their lackey politician are responsible for the wretched misery of the world today. They looted the assets of countries around the globe and stole our future. We are left with nothing but confusion. Our confusion is rapidly turning to anger as we learn more about how they deceived us, betrayed us, and ruined our lives. They have robbed us of our hope and dreams.
There is no solution to this insane economic system except socialism. We, the people of the world now have an important decision to make; we can continue to curse the wealthy or, we can begin seeking and employing methods of uniting us so we can defeat our common enemy and move us to a better way of living together. If we do not have a clear picture in our minds of how we want to live together in peace and harmony chaos will occur when the socio-economic system collapses. We have to know where we are going, or we are lost. Where do we go? The answer is obvious; we are all human beings we are all brothers and sisters and all have exactly the same innate needs for food, water, shelter, warmth, sleep, social order, safety, security, stability, employment, a sense of belonging and love, and the opportunity to develop to our fullest potential. Simply put, we want and need to live in a world where people around the globe are at peace with each other and live in harmony with each other and where we have the opportunity to develop our lives to our fullest potential. The only way out is if a vast majority of people around the world solidly unite as brothers and sisters under the motto, “All for one, one for all.” Brothers and sisters take care of each other. The human family looks after one another.
