Following my rants on the problems with our current corporatist version of capitalism, Annie Lennox does a much better job at summing up what’s wrong with our current “democracy”, and how it came to be that way:
The programming code in these entities we call “corporations” needs to change. Corporations are not people, and they shouldn’t have any of the freedoms or rights that people have.
We need rules and definitions that work for us, for ALL of us, not just the 1000 greedy bastards at the pyramid’s top.
Corporations should be defined as entities that work for humanity, not the other way around.
The big question is how??? Even if all of us wanted to change the rules of the game, if we all agreed it was time to reprogram these out-of-control machines, what could we do about it?
Has the game overpowered the players? Is that even possible?
People created the rules. People obey the rules. And people can change the rules.
There ain’t no game without the players, and there ain’t no global capitalism without humans.
We need a system that works for the people, and is governed by the people. Isn’t that what democracy is supposed to be about?
