In the UN climate action summit, Bolivian President, Evo Morales, was one of the few voices who dared to speak openly. To point out clearly the root of the biggest problems and challenges that the human kind is facing today.
As Morales said:
It is unavoidable to talk about the structural causes of the various crises.
Transnational corporations control food. They control water. They control non-renewable resources, arms and technology. These corporations control our personal data and are trying to turn everything into a business in order to accumulate more capital.
The world is controlled by a global oligarchy, where a handful of multi-millionaires define the political and economic destiny of mankind. Twenty six people have the same amount of wealth as 3.8 billion people. This is an insult. It's immoral. And it's unacceptable.
The problem ultimately lies in the model of production and consumption, in ownership of natural resources and the inequitable distribution of wealth.
Let us speak plainly and let us speak clearly. The root of the problem lies in capitalism, the capitalist system.
