Technology has revolutionised almost every aspect of our lives, all except one. The single most important area. The one which has the potential to address almost every major issue facingContinue
The movement has three primary objectives that will lead to a collabracy enabling us to do what’s right for the people and planet not the pocket of the 0.1%.
NEW ERA IN HUMAN DEVELOPMENT
Freeing ourselves of this cancerous plutocracy that serves the pocket of the wealthiest few
Plutocracy [plu-tok-racy] “a state or society governed by its wealthiest people”
Moving towards a new open political system so we can instead do what's best for the people and the planet
Collabracy [coll-ab-racy] “a state or society governed by the people through an open and collaborative political system”
OUR POLITICAL SYSTEM IS BROKEN
The system is designed to give real power to the corporations and richest 1%. Their lobbying and political funding means they get to shape every single decision and piece of legislation that is made in government. All we get is a vote every few years for two sides that typically don’t reflect your views or represent your interests.
INEQUALITY IS GROWING RAPIDLY
As a result, inequality is soaring and the richest 1% now have more than 50% of the world’s wealth. Buffet and Gates alone have more than poorest 40% of America. The combined wealth of the Forbes Richest 400 people has increased nearly 8x since the 90’s, jumping from $300bn in 1992 to $2.34 trillion in 2015. Yet inflation hasn’t even doubled over that same period and for the first time in history increases in productivity are decoupled from wages and employment. Only the richest few are seeing any real benefits.
INEQUALITY DESTROYS SOCIETIES
By almost every measure, a society’s level of inequality is directly linked to the health and well-being of that society. The countries with the least inequality like Sweden have the best life expectancy, literacy, numeracy, crime, infant mortality, mental well-being, obesity, rates of imprisonment, level substance abuse, murder, teenage pregnancy, and trust in the wider society & government. Whereas those with the highest inequality such as the US have the worst. Even the richest socio-demographic groups perform worse, but it’s the lower socio demographic groups that really suffer.
THE WORLD IS AT A TIPPING POINT
We are facing some almost unimaginable challenges that will see us either flourish or fail as a society.
Seeking to prevent mass extinction of species, increased deadly weather, and flooding from rising seas
We’re seeing an escalation of conflicts under the guise of fighting terrorism which actually breeds more terrorism.
The only thing standing between us and real change is our own inactivity. Play your part by signing the petition and sharing the video or play a bigger role by volunteering.
