IWNSPTB XII: Batho Pele

Humanity is in bad shape. The world is crumbling under an uneven distribution of wealth and power. We must examine behavior and beliefs reinforcing this status quo.

If we pay attention to the crimes of unfettered capitalism, we find that obscenely wealthy people use bought power to shape public life and discourse in favor of their status and pockets. Mass misery is directly proportional to the wealth of self-serving billionaires and the power of profit-hungry corporations. No salvation will come from these entities. Billionaires are not the heroes. They are the villains.

Batho Pele is a Sotho-Tswana phrase meaning “people first” – all people, not just a few filthy rich bastards.


This is the conclusion to I Will Not Sing Praises to Billionaires.
