#Poverty and #climate more important than #Brexit, says Corbyn | #Politics | The Guardian

I have disagreed with #JeremyCorbyn on his approach to Brexit but he is right in saying that it is a sideshow compared to #GlobalWarming and tackling poverty. Unfortunately, in the short term it’s a more acute crisis but the others are far more important and damaging.

St Clement of Alexandria on the rich Show more

"For many people, life's meaning is found in possessing, in having an excess of material objects. An insatiable greed marks all human history, even today, when, paradoxically, a few dine luxuriantly while all too many go without the daily bread needed to survive." - #PopeFrancis

Poverty Statistics

The mainstream media says that North Korea has about 40% people living below the poverty line.

A recent report by PPIC says that about 38.2% of people in California are at or near the poverty line. 🤐

#California is one of the richest states in the US with GDP almost equal to the #GDP of India. India has 33 times more population than California.

In Kenya's Slums, Mapping A Path To Less Destruction

"On a chilly morning last month, Maxwell watched in horror as the home in which he was born and had lived for 24 years was bulldozed. Several armed police officers watched too, in case any of the tens of thousands of affected residents in Kibera, one of Kenya’s largest slums, tried to resist."

This is an **excellent** podcast about #UniversalBasicIncome (and so much more), with Richard Feidler interviewing historian Rutger Bregman. The most inspiring (sorry) chat I have listened to in a long while.

I have found Bregman to be quite optimistic, and that is a very refreshing thing. I'm looking forward to reading his book, _Utopia for Realists_.
