no, and if you think so, you have no idea of what
Agreed. But lets not wait for the time when one has to do all those
inhuman things, making the oppressed and the oppressors look the same
color of blood red.
Artificial shortages of the tools and methods (read as markets,
finance, skill, etc) for work is one reason for much of the farmers
(and others) misery. Making a meaningful contribution to change
immediately the situtations you point out may not be within the ambit
of this list's skills. But unlocking hardware and software is one
area that will impact everyone greatly, as these (hopefully) become
tools of the 99million who barely exist.
