I understand that all the mainstream social problems (like poverty, starvation, drug addiction, etc) have never really been addressed throughout my life this far. These issues keep growing and I believe that a systemic change is required. I’m not alone in this point of view, there are several others who share the same or similar ideas. Since I generally write these monthly posts on topics that relate directly to my life, I find it important to share my perception about the condition of the world we live in today. The following two videos closely align with my ideas: In the first one Matt Damon recites a speech from Howard Zinn and the second one shows Russell Brand interviewing with Newsnight’s Jeremy Paxman.
