This is just a short blog, made of a few statements.
Our tax burden is higher than it has ever been.
We continue to cut public services deeply.
We are told we are doing this to plug the gap in our public finances and pay off our debts.
However, the debt we are in is getting bigger, despite the high taxes and huge budget cuts.
And all the while, the rich are getting richer, but the poor and marginalised are the ones who suffer.
This is totally crazy. The so called benevolent hand of the “free market” is not benevolent at all.
There is a system of economics that is much more just and fair, but it relies on an altogether different benevolent hand.
It goes like this…..Seek first the way of what is right, that which brings joy and peace to everyone everywhere, and everything you need will be given to you……..think about it……have you got a little faith in you somewhere? Hope of a brighter future for this planet? Love for people and the planet? Maybe, just maybe, it’s time to give an altogether different economy a chance to do justice.
