It’s January, 2013. It’s time once again to look at what is happening in our world – to do what we can to make it better. Look at the plight of those oppressed by violence around the world. Look at how our societies are becoming more and more unequal as the rich become richer, and the poor (who can barely afford to live now) become poorer. Executives make far too much for the value they add. Can we justify this inequality? I wonder how. I can also argue that wages in my country (Canada) have been driven too high. When everyone who is working makes too much money, what happens to those who cannot work?
There is a lot to think about. We still have a chance to fix things. Let’s do it.
