The Global Plutocracy.
At present we live in a global plutocracy.
Rich corporations and individuals control the election of governments through their ownership of the media.
Even left-wing governments are controlled by their economic-rationalist advisers.
So any progress towards a more equitable world is doomed.
Our economic rulers don't want a fairer world.
Nor do they want to preserve the environment.
So cries for help like the Earth Charter and the Charter for Compassion have limited impact because their adherents have no real power.
We can only hope that people will grow tired of injustice and wake up to the ways in which the media manipulates our thoughts and actions.
Hate campaigns and saturation methods control public opinion and votes.
But where are the politicians?
Where are the leaders who might implement a reactionary humanism?
Perhaps this is to come.
