Gender Gap and Diversity

Inequality — how did it all go so wrong?


Why is it that just two generations ago a family could feed, clothe and house itself with just one parent working but nowadays, even to achieve this at a basic level, both parents must work?

Why is it you can buy all the cheap tat that you want and don’t need but those things that you do need; food, housing, power, water, travel…are more expensive than ever before?

Why is it that some of our biggest corporations pay less tax than a worker on an average wage?

When did anybody decide that it would be a good idea to take well-paid jobs from workers in one part of the world and give them to poorly paid workers in another part, then to try and sell the goods now produced so cheaply back to those workers who originally made them but now no longer had a job or an income?

When did our political system become a wholly-owned subsidiary of the banks and big business, when did the democratic process devolve to choosing one of a series of sock puppets, each of which has the hand of the moneyed elite up its arse?

When did social mobility collapse, why is a child born poor today so much more likely to die poor than just thirty years ago?

When did our government start working covertly with unspeakably vile terrorist groups to destabilize far away countries, destroy their social, physical, and political infrastructure, cracking open nation-states to provide plunder for the already immensely wealthy?

Why does today’s media never report the full story, never speak the truth; why have journalists become not investigators and seekers of the truth but propaganda mouthpieces for the establishment?

Why is it a good idea to print money to subsidize losses made in the course of criminal acts by the big banks but not to pay for public infrastructure projects?

When did the rules of capitalism change to include one that says ‘when rich people suffer financial loss, said loss shall be paid for by ordinary people in the form of reduced wages, reduced benefits, and cuts to public services?

Why has the distribution of income become more unequal now than at any time in the past 100+ years?

Why did we stop thinking for ourselves and allow social media and propaganda peddling ‘news’ outlets to do it for us?

When did society become so shallow, so selfish, so obsessed with meaningless, pointless consumption, celebrity, idiophones, and Marvel superheroes?

When exactly when…tell me, did we all give up and hand control of our lives to a few thousand greedy, dysfunctional, perverse psychopaths and sociopaths? When, and why, did we hand control of our lives to The Devil’s Children?
