We are led by the faceless men of the multi-national corporations.
Whose brutal agenda renders everyone powerless.
They rule the boardroom.
They own everything.
They control our governments.
They manipulate the media.
Big Brother is here and now.
But there is a glimmer of hope.
Religious leaders like Pope Francis I, Desmond Tutu, and the Dalai Lama are gaining some attention.
Their enlightened insights are being listened to by many.
But how can we escape the iron grip of the corporations?
It will take more than a few wise aphorisms.
We must act now to save our democracy.
Leaders must come forward who are not motivated by personal profit.
Ideals must be seen again in the capitals.
Not just economic robots.
We must demand that our leaders serve the people.
And the corporations must accept their responsibilities as citizens of the world.
All this must begin now.
Or in the not too distant future there will be violent revolutions.
