Adbusters - # 157: Ultimatum to World Leaders
Trust Adbusters for always being to-the-point when it comes down to cleaning up the toxic areas of our mental environment, advocating the reverse of the upward flow of wealth, and exposing every corporation that betrays the public trust.
“Covid-19 turned from an outbreak into a pandemic because of airplanes. The virus shot around the world, instantly found new hosts, and replicated everywhere all at once. It was out of Pandora’s box before anyone could make a lid big enough to shut it down.
Speculative money has spread the virus of capitalism the same way. The throughput is out of control — because there are no borders or governors or effective laws to stop the money-from-nothing algorithm. The speculative traders are like superspreaders, and the whole world is vulnerable. Our only hope is to shut those guys down.
In this issue, we take a crack at flattening the speculative-money curve. If we can achieve this, then things for all of us all around the world will slowly get better — until eventually we reach financial herd immunity.”(The Editors)
