Look At The System
We're in the state we're in because we don't look at the basics.
We flounder around with contrary ideas on:
Jobs - Public Services - Support - Security - Climate Change
Taxes - Income - Wealth - Poverty - Benefits
Fairness - Equality - Opportunity - Dignity
Identities - Nationalism - Racism and more
because we take for granted the system
of organisations and relationships -
Nations - Politics - Politicians - Media
The Economy - Trade - Free Markets - Business
Business People - Employers - Work - Workers - Class
that underlies it all.
Look At The System,
by Ed McDonnell explains it, from our everyday experience
and in our everyday language. It will give you and others
a base from which to think about and discuss the various issues.
