Genesis 41: 1-8; 47:17-19
Mark 6: 34-44
As I was searching for information on climate change, I came across opinions from different sources affirming that today, with US elections coming up next year and other world changing events, there is a common feeling that there is something new and different going on. People worldwide are realizing that the gap between the 1% superrich of the world and the 99% of the poor is becoming unbearable; they are pointing fingers at the system that’s responsible.
People are realizing more and more that old institutions and ways of doing things no longer work, with more people being faced with the reality of inequality worldwide and here in the US with the failed foreign adventures in the Middle East and Afghanistan and the great recession of 2008 when the housing market collapsed and the big banks got bailed out. People are beginning to name the main culprit market capitalism and seeing the tentacles that this creature has spread out in people’s lives. Today coalitions are being formed and large alliances are coming together.
