Looking for an alternative?
The alternative to capitalism and communism.
It's catching on in a few places... like parts of Brazil and India.
When the squeeze gets severe enough and you can see that capitalists are strangling you by the throat, alternatives are more revealing.
Cozy Americans..... driving to work and picking up a cafe latte on the way... paying bills with money left over in the bank... eating plenty
and getting fat.... hmmmm, I wonder if they are hard pressed to do anything different.
Go to the 2/3rds World where most of the Earth's inhabitants live and check out the situation.
