We live in an age of consumer nonsense, vast inequality in the places that it matters and stunningly complex laws in places where it really doesn’t.
First world economies are based on stupid people buying things that they don’t need, who have been sold to them by multinational internet giants that owe no allegiance to any nation and who exploit the third world workers who made the goods in a totally shameful manor.
Developing economies are trapped in a cycle of poverty, world trade is so slanted againt them that development is an uphill struggle. If the Third World share of world trade was to go up by a tiny percentage, millions of people would be lifted out of poverty.
Free trade is a myth, those great temples of free market thought, Britain and the US, got where they are now through protectionist policies. This blog recognises the right of sovereign, elected governments to defend their economies and to take a hand in the market.
The environment, that which we all depend on for our livelihoods, directly or no, is being abused everyday by a wasteful world economy that cares not for people or for wildlife, but for a select elite that benefit from the exploitation of the land and people.
Which is why this blog advocates the return of the people to the land that bore them, and a return of society to its agrarian and simple roots.
Let our economies and food supply be based on small scale, labour intensive organic farms, which mop up unemployment and which provide the landless proletariat a stake in our society through the construction of small holdings.
The land must be redistributed to the people.
