How did we get to be so distracted, depressed and helpless? Where exactly did we misplace our true capacity to act intelligently with foresight, to be creative, fulfilled and content? How did we get to believe that money, possessions and power would take the place of these things? Why do we measure a man’s worth by how what he has, by how much power he wields over those around him? Because of this belief we have for thousands of years been locked in a vicious game of ‘beggar thy neighbour’, now massively amplified by oil and technology, and ultimately played to the point where the outstanding, the primal reality of this world, is that the top 1% of people control more wealth than the bottom 90% … we have been robbed of our birthright to be decent, wise, loving and happy, but for fear of losing the meagre fragments of these things left to us … the voice remains silent.
