Purpose: Something is very wrong about our society today. It should be based on the Golden Rule: "Do unto others as you would have others do unto you." But instead it is based on the opposite: "He who has the gold makes the rules." The ones with the gold celebrate greed and looking out for #1, destroy the environment for personal gain, and pit people against each other to control them.
In the United States we have a fake democracy. Big Money owns the media and political parties, controls the electoral process and politicians, and determines government policies, which have nothing to do with campaign promises or what most people want. This is not right!
Our capitalist economy is based on, and perpetuates, enormous economic inequality. Most people are merely 'hired hands' working for, and required to obey, employers who claim, illegitimately, to personally own the earth's land and minerals as well as the material and intelectual wealth produced by millions of working people. The poorest people do the hardest work and enjoy the benefits of socially produced wealth the least; the richest do the easiest work in great luxury or do no work at all, and enjoy the lion's share of these benefits. This is wrong!
We want real democracy and an economy based on equality and concern for one another and generations yet unborn.
