[Time] for change is now

“Our economy is based on spending billions to persuade people that happiness is buying things, and then insisting that the only way to have a viable economy is to make things for people to buy so they’ll have jobs and get enough money to buy things.”
― Philip Slater

The way our dominant economy works now creates a social disease: poverty, and for people to actually gain off the misery of others and the destruction of the environment is completely unacceptable and will eventually destroy us if we don't change it.
