How Can A World Be Good? – H. Rider Haggard
“How can a world be good in which Money is the moving power, and Self-interest the guiding star?”
– H. Rider Haggard
We live in perilous times. Headlines in respected newspapers warn against apocalyptic decline due to climate change, wealth inequality now finds that the bottom 80% of the country account for 7% of the nation’s wealth. Kim Kardashian has deliberately inspired legions of fans and hack reporters try out something called a Vampire Facial (wherein doctors inject your own plasma-rich blood back into your face). The all-white Oscars, and the violent, fatal racial injustices on the street. America is facing an election that literally pitts Capitalism embodied against Socialism; corporate interest against the cries of the underrepresented. Just quoting the facts. The world is not good, because Money is the moving power and Self-interest is the guiding star. What will you do about it?
