In a video I will share this weekend, I heard the following phrase: “In the criminal justice system the people are repressed by two separate but equally important important groups: the police who defend private property and the policy makers who criminalize disobedience”. When I heard “the police who defend private property and the policy makers…” my mind spun ahead completing the sentence with “the policy makers who define private property”.
Why did that pop up in my head? Well it is because of the immoral and cruelly corrupt system of human life into which I was born and in which I therefore have had to utterly waste my short time on Earth. It arranges and justifies its inequality and its abuse of people – and even the destruction of our life-supporting environment – on the concept of private property.
And what is that concept of private property? How is it defined for us?

I. It’s Time to Heed King’s Call for the Abolition of Poverty
Gist: poverty in our country nowadays is by design and to abolish it we must get ready to change the design (incl. abolishing excessive wealth accumulation)
Quotes: “Knowing that suffering is wrong should be enough of an argument to condemn a system that prioritizes the wealth of a select few at the expense of countless others.” “The abolition of poverty will not simply happen overnight. We have to bring it about in our everyday lives. It’s not going to be given to us by liberal politicians or charitable billionaires who are part of the problem themselves.”
II. 26 Billionaires Own as Much as World’s 3.8 Billion Poorest People
Quotes: “… the planet’s richest people saw their fortunes soar by $2.5 billion per day last year… The wealth of the world’s poorest fell by $500 million each day.” ”“Inequality is not inevitable,” Oxfam’s report concludes, “it’s a political choice.””

He describes how our system brings the worst out in people. Another pearl: the flaw in the American spirit. More stuff: the 7th week of the Yellow Vests, and a lot more. Do take a look.
