Democracy is under it’s most heaviest attack since it was perceived. Never before has greed eroded our liberal foundations, as it does in this the 21st Century. It has turned into a true battle between ideologies ( If you can call GREED an ideology?). Economic warfare between Nations almost seems the new normal. But it is not! It could bring the entire evolution of us humans to it’s knees. It could be our collective downfall.
While most of our fellow humans are still living in poverty and without basic facilities like infrastructures for running water or energy, others are playing with the latest high-tech gadgets, the latest high-tech cars and houses & living in shameless wealth. This with no regard to the suffering of millions of others. The elite is de-humanized, de-sensitized and even considers killing anybody that stands in the way of their wealth, the new normal. They sell this idea under the excuse off ,’Global Overpopulation’. The arrogance and sociopathic behaviour from so few to so many, is at an all-time high.
Even in the western world, people feel powerless against so much violent behaviour. Suppressed as slaves to Banks, Mortgages, corrupt Politicians & the system they live in, most tend to give up and just go along. Even against their better judgement. The results have been clear for all to see; Worldwide pollution, corruption and growing inequality.
The divide between our kind has gone from bad to worse. No longer it touches creed or colour. It has been subdivided into even more so called minorities like; man/woman Rich/poor Gay/Straight Muslim/Christian Shiite/ Sunni Kurdish/ Turkish and whatever group can be played-out against one another. And as far as being ruled by divide is concerned, nothing has changed there since the colonial conquests.
These actions only resulted in People retreating into new tribal communities out of fear, alongside a mountain of growing chronic diseases, that nobody will want to pay for. To recover from this perverted & polluted mantra of modern society will no doubt take another 100 years. In the meantime people will again not be allowed to grow into a Global community as well they should have.
Multi-Nationals are playing a very questionable role in all this; First the major large economic players have held evolution off our species back for over a century. Like for example; the fossil fuel industry that purposely withheld clean energy from finding ground decades earlier. Companies like Nestle trying to buy up all clean drinking water wells Globally, with no regard to the people living around these wells. Or the Chemical giants like Dow & many others that have uninhibited polluted our soil, oceans and all-round environment. Now these same players say they are part of the clean-energy revolution and want to clean up their act?! How much more corruption and downright lies can our species and the planet take before it all perishes?!
We are but an opportunistic species still stuck in colonial behaviour that is no longer of this time. We need to lose this warped and sick mentality rather sooner than later. We do not have to all become equal! We could never all be equal because this would mean we would lose our capacity to adapt to random situations. However we do need to create a more equal evolutional process in order to survive as a species. We cannot just create a Ruling-class & Working-class system, because this obviously only leads to civil tensions and wars in our respective societies. It Would be better to create an overall Middle-class society with only a few Higher & lower-classes
Politicians need to be able to hold accountable for their actions as well as CEO’s from major corporate players. We need to install International courts that pursue transnational corporate en political crimes as soon as possible. It is not small crimes that threaten our World, but these crimes by major producers & politicians that so far have gone mostly unpunished. We need to set examples that large scale corruption does not pay, or all suffer the consequences.
