“The only disease right now is the racism that we are fighting.” said England football player Raheem Sterling.
He suggests that protesters who took to the streets after the killing of George Floyd are trying to find a solution to injustice.
That’s eminently reasonable.
But when are we going to get aboard the injustice of money creation – when Chancellor Sunak has in recent activities favoured some at the expense of others?
I’m trying to discover a rallying cry for those who are money short – and should have more – which would also change a lot of lives – black or otherwise.
Would ‘money injustice’ be the thing?
The difficulty is it is an abstract concept.
So, of course is Black Lives Matter (BLM), but a knee resting on your throat is definitely not- and so they have an image…
This sounds rather as though I’m belittling BLM – I’m not but I am endeavouring to learn from it.
Are there statues that should topple? – and I have to say that the blessed Margaret – ‘there is no government money’ – should be the first but that would be unlikely to cut through – given that so many seem still to approve of many other of her ideas….
So perhaps it should be Poor Lives Matter – which the Tories, being so inordinantly wealthy, both as a party and personally, would find particularly difficult and incidentally include many black lives.
Or maybe we should just shout very loudly that the government creates money out of thin air and that ‘Silence is Compliance’?
That would at least put the onus on people to argue against the fact that money is created out of thin air…
Anyone have better ideas?
