          To the ordinary people of this capitalist world daily life is daily struggle. There’s the struggle to keep a roof over your head, to put food on the table, There’s the struggle against a system that splits humans into nationalities and cages them between illusionary borders, the struggle against a system that plunders the earth for the benefit of the few. The struggle against the military industrial complex that squanders precious resources on endless wars for power and markets. Then of course there is the endless struggle against boring jobs with inadequate wages. All with one outcome, power, wealth and privileges for the few.
         To maintain this system of power and privileges for the few, the state creates a whole raft of legislation, backed up by a rigged judicial system. Our daily struggle must include stand against laws formulated by the rich and powerful, and a system that punishes those who would dare to challenge this selfish insanity. For self respect and freedom, we must also struggle against the ever creeping authoritarianism and its accomplice, total surveillance.
        As long as we tolerate this capitalist economic system, our struggles will not just continue, they will increase and the barriers to equality, justice and a sustainable system that sees to the needs of all our people will keep ever increasing. The capitalist system can’t be reformed, inequality and exploitation are inherent within its structure. Appealing to the managers and beneficiaries of the system to abandon their wealth, power, privileges and selfish greed driven desires, in favour of a more egalitarian and fairer system, is doomed to failure. We might as well ask Queen Victoria’s statue to end imperialism. 

And growing!!!
         The system has to be brought crumbling down by the force of the ordinary people deciding that they will no longer tolerate greed fed inequality, injustice and abject poverty and deprivation in the midst of opulence, they will no longer see their sons and daughters sacrificed at the alter of endless wars to feed mammon. We must be the change, there is no knight in shining armour about to charge in and rescue us, it’s up to us, the ordinary people.
