The problem? It’s capitalism.

Viewing what is and what can be from various angles.

Keep an open mind and watch this first video please.

.
After viewing please visit https://www.thezeitgeistmovement.com/ which Lee referenced in the video and which you can learn about in the following video right below here.

Here is a GREAT video showing vision and ways to achieve that vision.  Peter Joseph is the founder of the Zeitgeist Movement, a grassroots, worldwide organization that advocates an alternative economic system based on sustainability, cooperation and human need. His most recent book, ‘The New Human Rights Movement,’ delivers a startling exposé about the violent oppression that defines our economic order, while issuing an urgent call for global activism to unite to replace it. Abby Martin sits down with Joseph to talk about the contradictions and crises of capitalism and what he advocates to save the future of the planet from catastrophe.

Here is the link to the movement he talks of in the video above

While the above video shows clearly a vision and plan that benefits the most people and our whole planet, I’m also going to share some lists that go toward positive change in various ways and from various angles.
We need to get informed and busy making change happen, so everyone must be involved and do what they can. Pick ways to peacefully change our course to a better way hopefully with a view on short and long term benefits and start making it happen.

Here is a good list of non corporate parties and candidates and a video showing how you can build a winning alliance. https://together4earth.one/parties-and-candidates-with-various-progressive-platforms/

Is being worth $120,000,000,000 (one hundred and twenty Billion dollars) enough for the CEO of Amazon (Jeff Bezos) ?
Oh no, he needs more so parting with a tiny, tiny amount to help homeless people is not an option.

.
While this next video doesn’t go into the need for universal healthcare and other issues is is VERY important to watch and to see how we are all affected and at risk from the unbridled greed which is enabled by and carried out through capitalism.

.
Again, please keep an open mind and don’t limit your thoughts and ideas to what is fed to you by mainstream media, politicians, corporate interests or those that refuse to question the status quo.
Those groups never have driven anything that serves us all and they never will.
Only those that care, are willing to have a good overview of the way things are, the vision of what things should (and can) be and a willingness to work for them will.

Thank you.

Peace.
