Our current economic organizing force is a system which creates a great imbalance in power. It does this by funneling much of what working people produce into the hands of a small power-elite. This power-elite is both motivated and enabled by this enormous wealth to maintain and exacerbate this imbalance-creating system from which they perceive themselves to be profiting (which in many ways they do). This system is the source of Money in Politics.
What is overlooked by most, however – including by the power-elite – is that this system, by dint of its narrow focus on things like social status and wealth, prevents us from properly perceiving and addressing the enormous power that nature exerts over us. Thus we dismally fail to properly deal with natural catastrophes and horrible diseases, as well as the agonizing decrepitude and finite death that comes to all human beings as the few years we have in this world fly by.
Currently even the most privileged among us cannot escape from the dismal fate that comes with aging. Therefore, though they live it up for a while, the power-elite created by this system do ultimately suffer like the rest of us and have mostly themselves to blame for measures not taken against this. This makes our inequality-generating system not only unethical by most people’s standards but – objectively speaking – incredibly STUPID.
Since, furthermore, this incredible stupidity is reflected in – and actively cultivated by – the power-elite, the rest of us are forced to overcome our own blindness, oust the power-elite any way we can, and install a better system.
