The elites of so-called developing countries are no more interested in the welfare of their own citizens than Britain’s elites were of theirs in Victorian times. They are just a "human resource" to be exploited and protected against.
The assumption that perpetual economic growth will create enough wealth to lift everyone out of poverty, without restricting the growing wealth of the elites, is pure fantasy.
What’s fundamental wrong with “society” is that it is not a genuine society at all, but an artificial environment, which state and economy facilitate the self-exploitation of.
That’s the problem we have to recognise and understand, if we want to solve it – and survive. Otherwise, our civilisation will self-destruct.
