Unprecedented Abundance

This article from author and activist David DeGraw is a must read for anyone who wants to understand the incredible wealth that humanity now produces and how most of it is appallingly squandered...

“When I was reporting on economic issues and went deep into how much wealth there truly is, it was shocking. Shocking is an understatement. It was a mind blowing, reality shattering, worldview altering, and ultimately, a transformative, life-giving experience. I began to see how unnecessarily oppressive society is. Once you cut through the technocratic propaganda, peer through the illusion and understand economic reality, once you truly comprehend how much wealth there is, there is no turning back. That was the red pill that made me exit the matrix and realize the enslavement of the masses. That’s what made me fully realize my own enslavement.”
