Quote "Let the wolves guard the sheep is Capitalism moto!"
Wealth is created by three things, resources, igenuity, and labour. If its distribution were more equalized/fair/just we, Canada and many other Countries on this planet, would not be facing this fast approaching serious problem. The other major or serious flaw or problem is that we (the have) are constantly seduced to consume regardless of long term consequences of individuals or the health of life itself on this planet.
Our evolved ways have allowed 80% of the wealth to be diverted into 20% of the pockets to do as they please. Many or most consume and thus pollute thousands if not tens of thousands of times more then others. This is what Capitalism has allowed to happen and is as we all know protected by guns controlled by those who have more then their fair share.
Politicians do not question it, otherwise they would not get re-elected in the next round. Even when it is questionned it is ignored by the media as they (media) are owned by the same group of people.
All those who have any kind of insurance, or all those that work or have a bank account are guilty of participating in these injustices as we allow indirectly those at the top to be rewarded with millions in compensation while others are left with peanuts or nothing.
They should call themselves "Thinkless Tanks"!
