Revolution is happening all around the world, while all I'm left with this lousy election. A single party that I disagree with on nearly every issue; war, education, climate, sustainability, poverty, fair trade, the environment, healthcare, transparency, civil liberties and so on, I stand in opposition to both parties, left without a voice, without a vote, without a choice, in what i'm told is the world's greatest democracy.
(In Venezuela, poverty has been reduced in half, extreme poverty reduces by 70%). When industry become nationalized, profits stop being extracted from the people, and decisions can be made based on what is good for the people, instead of what is good for the company. When a compainy becomes under state control, there is no longer profits, but public revenue. That money can go to anywhere that society sees fit. Exxon alone makes annual profits of 80 billion, imagine if that 80 billion were public funds or tax revenue. Exxon tends to use that money to squash alternative energy research and development, if it was a public company we could do the opposite. There is no solution to the environment crisis under capitalism. The good news is an alternative is growing.
