The world is at a tipping point that will see us either flourish or fail as a society. Failure is almost certain with our current corrupt political system which ruthlessly serves the pocket of the richest 0.1%. What we have is an illusion of democracy and it’s oppressively harmful to the people and the planet.
Any attempts to tackle inequality, corruption, climate change, poverty, mass unemployment, and escalating global conflicts; will ultimately fail until we first achieve major political reform.We need to demand that our politicians begin to drag the political system out of the dark ages; moving us towards a collabracy that’s genuinely open and participative, adopting new platforms and process that put power in the hands of the many, not the few. Act today by signing the petition and sharing the video
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 reflects 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.

TAKEN INTO UNJUST WARS
Against the will of the people

Spilling the blood of many in pursuit of profit for a few. Leaving us with dead soldiers & debt so the 1% can get rich off interest payments, arms sales, lucrative government contracts, and oil.

BAILING OUT BANKS
Paid for by us, the tax payers
It’s criminal that low and middle income people had to bailout these mega wealthy bankers because of their own greed. Our financial system is corrupt and needs major reform
MASS MEDIA PROPOGANDA
Chasing ratings over the truth

Our news has become entertainment using fear and sensationalism to chase ratings, pushing whatever propaganda suits the pocket of the networks billionaire owners

CORRUPT LEGAL SYSTEM
Letting those with wealth hide it

Panama papers is just the tip of the iceberg with the wealthiest people and biggest corporations able to exploit loopholes to avoid paying tax leaving the burden on the workers

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.

MASS UNEMPLOYMENT
Automation could impact 47% of job categories (The Economist) creating mass global unemployment on an unprecedented scale
GLOBAL WARMING

Seeking to prevent mass extinction of species, increased deadly weather, and flooding from rising seas

ESCALATING CONFLICTS

An eye for eye leaves the whole world blind, we need to pursue peace. This pursuit of profit only fuels terrorism

All of these threats can be turned into opportunities that make the world a better place. But any attempts to tackle these and many other challenges; will ultimately fail until we first achieve major political reform. Establishing an open political system that serves the needs of the people and the planet, not the pocket of the wealthiest few.
BROKEN POLITICAL SYSTEM
