What is in the realms of fantasy is the continuation of disregarding the poorest and neediest in society, while the rich get wealthier and the banksters get off without repercussions for their crimes. Enough is enough! Fairness, compassion and true responsibility for each other is not an extreme idea, it is the best idea for our survival as a species. Greed destroys and animalistic self-centered interests obliterate communities.
Civilisation, the very definition of social cohesiveness and coordination, is based upon our willingness to step beyond the needs of the individual and to learn to work as a collective for the greater good. This is social evolution.
