Great article. The feeling that something is wrong has developed over the past decades and is undoubtedly fueled by the still raging financial crisis. We are trapped in a system that benefits only a few and don’t know how to get out other than stepping out on an individual basis. It would be good to get together as many smart minds as possible and step back far enough to see the whole picture and redesign it so that we get to a system that will accommodate human beings and not reduce human beings to machines. Key problem is that — somewhere along the line — a few people have managed to control crucial resources. A new — humane — structure would at least include protection against the enslavement that comes from monopoly control of those key life resources.
