You don't need a lot of money, you need people. People who are organized behind something are much more powerful than money.
Well, if you want to start acting and changing, you best get a really BIG, BIG box and fill it with money.
You see, MONEY is what it takes to pay bribes.
That's how the American worker was cheated out of his union and ended up working a TEMP job that pays $2 above minimum wage.
There is one other way that I know of.
Attack and kill the rich, who own everything.
Mankind is doomed to extinction. Has been since the Dark Ages and the time of pyramids and pharoahs.
Greed and lust and taking everything and sharing nothing are the emotions that control the world.
I know this, so I simply sit back and await my own death.
That's my golden parachute exit strategy from this chaos.
You really need to begin by CHANGING the very emotions that cause one man to hoard billions of dollars while the employees that created that wealth starve in the cold, out on the sidewalks.
Sadly, we just do not live in a "Share and share-alike" sort of world anymore!
And a real fool accepts things in the fear that they will not change. It takes dreams, and people willing to think outside the box, and act on it. Only when we can identify a problem, and work on a solution can we work to alleviate the problem. If we just accept a problem and do nothing about it, nothing gets done to change things for the better.So, instead of "Gee wouldn't it be nice if there were no hurricanes and no floods," we examine the situation, and say, "What can we do to defend our selves from hurricanes and floods, and what can we do to prevent them," we can start to work on a solution to the issue. Even if the floods and hurricanes are going to kill us in the present, if we pose a solution that future generations can work on, then we have at least have done half of the job.
Hey, good for you!
Your little make-believe world sounds fine and dandy, to be sure.
Unfortunately, the people who have the money are driven by GREED and a total LACK of CONCERN for everyone else.
So, as nice as your way sounds, the reality of it ever happening is less than the odds of winning the mega-lottery!
"Gee, wouldn't it be nice if there were no hurricanes and no floods?" the fool asks, as the water rushes over his head. He'll be dead in the next two minutes, of course.
See the world as it IS, rather than how you wish it was. Cause all the dreamin' and hoping in the world will add up to NOTHING!
Why is it that in the "greatest" democracy in the world, the de facto economic system is governed more like a dictatorship than a democracy? In a democracy everyone gets a say in what goes on, In a dictatorship one or a few people get to say what goes on. In order for capitalism to survive, it must become a democracy, and have everyone who works for a company make the decisions as to what happens with said company. Yes, the owner makes the initial investment to create the company, but without his or her workers, there would be no business. This is especially true in larger businesses. Capitalism cannot survive if only a few make profits, and make decisions. If workers had a stake in the business that they work in, they could probably come up with better decisions for our economy, especially the local economy than if a small board of directors made decisions only to benefit themselves. Time to think about worker owned and operated businesses. Not small board of directors owned corporations.
"Is wholesale replacement necessary? Perhaps, but the economic models drawn up in lecture halls likely aren’t the substitutes. Those are generally mired in the “old left” way of thinking—placing trust in government rather than in private market actors."Anarchism avoids both extremes, of top-down government rule and the dog-eat-dog social Darwinism of the "free market". Decisions are reached by the people themselves, deciding what is best for their communities. Zapatismo shows how communities can be organized and run without government.
