Below the veneer of civilization, we are still gripped with an inchoate ancient fear and fascination with animals that can kill us — that often translates into a visceral need to dominate, eliminate, or just simply be titillated. https://t.co/tmHT1WDVKz

90% of children born in 1940 grew up to earn more than their parents. Today, only half of all children earn more than their parents did. https://t.co/XEmDig602T

Capitalism produces a business model that is not only rapacious but psychopathic. Those who pursue profit have no choice but to inflict damage on wider society, or the planet, and then cloak their deeply anti-social – even suicidal – actions. https://t.co/lGpR0tM63o
