Take control of own lives
The problem with the academians is that they live in a glass towers. Sometimes not much practicality in their thoughts or opinions. Before the Industrial Revolution, we were agrarian society where folks provided for their own.
I see some people who have been laid off are taking control of their own lives. I am a volunteer with an organization looking to create an independent media that addresses the concerns of poor and working people. What I believe is that government and business are no wonder concerned with the public's interests-only their profits and shareholders.
No system of government is perfect. It's up to us as citizens to make sure that government and business do the right thing.Gennee
