In most Western countries, the people with wealth and power tend to assume that they are the majority.
The parasitic class of super-elites has bastardized capitalism to extract value for themselves at the cost of everyone else and the true majorities around the world. Since governments are beholden to the hands that feed them — the parasitic super-elites — we the people are coming to the realization that we are called to duty as agents of change.
Food and thought for reflection and action:
How can you as an individual facilitate change?
No one can accomplish everything, but everyone can do something!
Do you choose to be one of the masses that is deaf, dumb and blind — and dangerously out of touch, or an agent of change?
What is the one thing you can do each day to let your voice be heard and tell your government leaders and corporations that “enough is enough”?
Is real change voting for and placing business interests in positions of government? Was their political influence not strong enough though political donations and lobbying?
Your future and the future of your children depends on your action or inaction.
