    If “movements fighting” global inequality are rising… it should result in a decrease of inequality!

    I guess those movements need more years…

    It is bound to happen when 1% of the world own so much. The shift of wealth to that 1% is the result of centuries of inequality including the Colonial age and the American century.

    “As global inequality rises…” it is due to our relentless production of 230,000 new copies of ourselves and the Capitalism that thrives on this constant output of new “consumers” in the West and cheap laborers in the 3rd world. Human nature is hardwired for dominance hierarchies, so easily observed in any athletic contest or financial comparison. Put human overpopulation and the struggle for dominance together and you’ll get “growing inequality” every time. So, now, we have over reached the natural boundaries of our natural environment and, so to speak, the “chickens” of overpopulation and over-consumption are coming “home to roost” in our collapsing environment. All the “revolutions” in the world won’t fix this problem, as history should have taught us, if we were paying attention. We just set up a new dominance hierarchy and share the spoils with our little group of victorious fellows. All the rest is just BS. Stress R Us

    And more allies, to challenge an entrenched system which is willing to end civilization rather than give up power and profit.

    A new generation of youngsters is “woke” to the tilted playing field which favors only the power elites and imperils their future. They are rebelling because it is their future we are ruining. Only because of social and alternate media are they becoming aware of the extreme injustice of massive inequality, and the reasons for it. Corporate corruption and dominance is not covered in the MSM. But the new generation does not watch TV any more. They search for news and answers on the internet. They communicate with each other and support their dreams in a way that was never done before. I have grandchildren. More power to them.

    Other than being arrested four times, participating in numerous demonstrations, contributing to groups who are addressing issues, working on behalf of candidates, and talking with folks about the issues; not much

  • voza0db

    Indeed not much… given the very superficial descriptions!

  • Pat moore

    I agree

  • voza0db

    No other way to look at it.
