Sharing Efforts with Fair Distribution of Results
CAPITALISM, 6 May 2019
29 Apr 2019 – Dominators always promised fortunate futures (and they still do) while they profit boundlessly present after present; such fortunate future works as carrot for the unwary. It is despicable to call for “sharing” efforts without securing that the results will not be appropriated by privilege but rather distributed to reduce income inequality and, hopefully, patrimonial inequality as well. If not, the outrageous concentration of wealth and the consequent decisional power will blow out of proportion more and more.

Experience teaches that we should be aware of manipulators and those prone to betray in exchange for payment or power crumbs.
No one says that it is simple but it is needed for the wellbeing of peoples and caring of the precious planet that shelters us.
