Help stop this mine. Help stop hostile, aggressive, ongoing, unbridled destructive corporate greed.
“Wherever there is great prosperity, there is great inequality. For one very rich man, there must be at least 500 poor, and the affluence of the few supposes the indigence of the many,” (18th century Adam Smith).
Today … inequality is much worse.
Two per cent own half the world’s wealth. Fifty per cent share one per cent of the world’s wealth. The vast majority of people are near poverty, in poverty, or in extreme poverty.
Children starve to death by the thousands daily. They lack clean water, basic sanitation, decent food, housing, health care, education and are in daily peril. The vast majority of people have no access to decent work based on environmental justice, sustainability, social justice and human rights.
The elite 0.01 per cent … having oligarchy, plutocracy, aristocracy … have no use for real democracy. They need the 99 per cent in unquestioned servitude.
Allowing this mine to make more money for the elite makes them all the more powerful over the many. Money buys their politicians, lobbies, lawyers, ad and spin men, protection … your servitude.
“Trickle down” economics is a betrayal for the many since Ronald Reagan. Since the industrial revolution, we are in the worst ongoing mass extinction event in 65 million years … caused by systemic, unbridled, inhuman greed of the elite and those who service them.
Today, we need a global economy without growth … based on environmental sustainability, social justice, and spiritual fulfillment for all. Unlimited industrial growth fueled by carbon fossil energy fail by all accounts. It is based on 18th century selfish market immorality. It is passe. It is no longer suitable for our global community on a finite planet.
A real democracy based on social equality is needed now. For the future of humanity, help stop unsustainable, global, corporate greed represented by this mine here.
