    If I could change one thing about the world it would be the dominant economic system. I don't believe we can truly create long lasting change for the people under a system that values profit over them. It will never be profitable for us to fix the greatest problems we're facing today and it's monetary incentive that will drive earth into the ground. This system promotes personal benefit over the collective good and only through diligent hard work and solidarity can we possibly hope to create a system that's truly by the people and for the people.
