Mind blown. I know this film has been around for quite a while, but I think it’s worth sharing for those of you who haven’t yet seen it. It’s clear that the world’s economic system is in urgent need of restructuring, but it’s hard to imagine something as herculean and all-encompassing as that being feasible.
From what I can see, only the razing of the entire credit system could undo all of this, but the powers that be and those of us ‘living it up’ on its merits will, in one way or another, ensure that it never happens. It’s sad, really.
Maybe there’ll be a violent revolution a few generations from now, but I don’t think that’s likely at all, given cosmopolitan society’s tendency towards the status quo. The world will probably just grow more and more Orwellian, and that is just sad.
