Thanks. Interesting answer and a lot in there.
First, I did quit a very successful career (as a proprietary trader at global investment bank) with no idea what to do (in a position of privilege at the time) as I realised that I was part of something I believed to be inherently evil. Subsequently, I invented something, patented it, developed the manufacturing tech to manufacture it, developed the products, set up a factory all in UK. I could have sold out/ given up control for large investment, but I had a social objective with the project. Refused to play ball with 'the system' and have effectively been unofficially exiled by the establishment after being terrorised/ attacked in every way imaginable. I ended up homeless and penniless on foreign soil.
Capital in wrong hands. Yes, it is the root of all the problems and unfortunately, there are covert networks that control everything and ruthlessly defend this interest irrespective of the consequences for millions (and billions) of lives.
I think it is possible to make a structure that works, but it does require that gov't represents an electorate and is not subservient to the direction of corporations/ a shadowy elite.
Globalisation is poised to unravel - the heightening geopolitical tension is a consequence. It's been founded on sustainable fallacies - the massive external deficits of USA, UK etc, fractional reserve banking, the invoicing of oil to prevent a collapse of the USD, the exploitation of overseas populations, exploitation of natural resource and abuse of environment, demographic influences which are now waning and reversing, absurd interdependencies and abandonment of real security (food, secondary activity etc).
The wheels are coming off and the choice is one of either what is happening right now, which is a shadowy elite heightening tensions, creating domestic unrest everywhere and shifting focus of general populations away from the true problem, and obfuscating a necessary collapse with conflicts/ emergency conditions internally .. or, re-globalise in an altruistic manner which means working towards levelled global standards of living, sharing technology and co-operation rather than competition.
