There is a lot of talk going on about change – including blacked-out Instagram posts and demonstrations in the street.
As lovely as compassion and understanding might sound, it remains a fairy tale. The truth of our world is not guided on principles of empathy but by the barbaric tenets of money.
The rich will stay rich and the poor will remain poor, and those nasty little one-per-centers will do everything in their power to keep it that way. Nominal things might be allowed – statues removed, proclamations signed – but nothing will actually change.
Instead they will adopt phrases like “radical compassion” until this thing passes and they can get back to their yachts.
