Madrid the buzz on the streets

Podemos four years ago

Podemos four years ago

If I devised a system, where a tiny percentage owned and controlled all the wealth society produces, where the overwhelming percentage of the population were poor and getting poorer, would such a system be tolerated?

If the answer is no, then why do we tolerate such a system, as that is what we have now?

Indeed it is even worse. We are destroying the planet to keep the system in place.

Why then do we tolerate it, why do we not rise up and not only remove the corrupt politicians who keep the system in place, why do we not replace the system with a fairer system of open coops, open commons, sharing, of participation?

In Greece they are doing, in the little Somerset town of Frome they are doing, in Spain this Sunday they went to the polls and we can but hope Podemos and citizen groups have overthrown the corrupt system.
