A society is only as good as the well-being of the people within it. Our current crisis provides the shock necessary for major change. IMHO this is what we must do.
Our economic model is no longer viable. We need middle-class centric policies which are anathema to it. Biden presents the status quo, Warren the future. Who wins?
The defect in our economic system is that capital takes on more importance than actual work and humanity. The rich uses that for inordinate profit.

Elon Musk tweet and the resulting financial results should dispel any notion that the stock market is anything but a legalized gambling platform.

We are enslaved by the economic system of the wealthy. Emancipation begins with the masses learning the truth and then taking control of their destiny.
