There was a time where the vast majority of people supported the system because there was the perception that it was working in the direction of protecting people’s rights. For that to happen, powerful actors bombarded people with ads everywhere with the intent to influence people’s behavior. It happened while these powerful actors were getting rich from people, who were hard-working on a daily basis.
During these happy days, our society was ignoring the reality, which was different from the perception that everyone had. In such context, powerful actors went a step further in the direction of distorting people’s reality, deploying a plan to ensure that everyone could spend as much money as they wanted. For that reason, people could easily order loans at any bank. In doing such, people were blindly happy, thinking that they were as wealthy as some rich people.
Little by little, this virtual reality was becoming bigger and bigger, while people were getting poorer, and poorer, until one day by 2008, when the big bubble suddenly exploded exposing the reality and the system’s problems. Within a short period of time people were amazed to see that they were losing all their assets, while powerful actors were enriching themselves.
Nowadays, the existing brutal inequality affecting all layers of society, and the constant refusal from powerful actors to solve this problem, may trigger the construction of a parallel system where the vast majority of people will turn their current tenebrous lives into prosperous. For that to happen, it will be determinant to see the capacity of people to unite in order to inflict a “mortal harm” to the current system.
In many countries, the unexpected organizational capacity of people has surprised several governments. For the first time, in the last two decades, governments will have to deal with an unpredictable phenomenon that may block their power overnight. Everything indicates that the stunning manipulative capacity that some governments have over its citizens, this time will not work.
What is happening around the world is not a surprise because this system was made by powerful people to keep their privileges, and they knew that it couldn’t last forever. The nostalgia of people to have the same rights and the same opportunities as them will change the system and the political scene around the world.
No one knows, what will happen in the next 20 years, though my prediction is clear, if people work together in the same direction of creating a new system, then they are unstoppable because they belong to the vast majority, the 99%.
I also predict many turbulences before the system changes since powerful actors will try to resist as much as they can, which means that some new wars may start very soon. Oppression, repression, and injustices against people will greatly increase to levels never seen before, it will be their last response!
