We are at a point in history where we have never seen so much wealth. Technology has never been so useful. There has never been so much money in the world. Production has never been so efficient, and communications have never been so powerful.
Yet at the same time society has never been so unequal. People have never had so much debt. People have never worked such long hours. People have never owned so much or thrown away so much. Human activity has never threatened to change our climate before. Rather than thinking about how to tackle these challenges, current governments all over the world seems content on making all these problems worse.
We can’t solve all of the problems without looking at money. We’ve done an awful lot of thinking about how to change the monetary system. Now it’s time to do it!
We need organised groups of supporters working up and down the country (and eventually the world) educating and communicating the problems with money and how to change it. There are over 160,000 active civil society organisations in the UK, citizens in the UK care about changing things that are wrong. We need many more citizens to care about changing money, which is fuelling the biggest problems in society today.
