I been following comedian Lee Camp for a while, he is excellent and you should follow him too. Although he is based in America and so are the problems he highlights – because we are pretty much controlled by Americans in New Zealand, the similarities and reasons for what is happening to our society is obvious.
This latest youtube interview on Lee’s show is BRILLIANT – and Richard Wolff is an awesome teacher – WAY BETTER THAN ME. Although I don’t agree with this ‘basic income stuff’ – I live rotting on welfare, invalids benefit because ACC/govt refuse me health care to return to work. The way people who unemployed FOR ANY REASON are treated by society in general is appalling – that includes being made to beg for food and shelter etc. I am more for everybody (including people with disabilities) having the opportunity to work within their capabilities if they possibly can. I also prefer the idea that people are NOT ALLOWED TO WORK LONG HOURS, everybody works 30 hrs a week for example.
Here is the link, please share with all your friends, then you will understand why that neo-liberal terrorist Adrian Orr, in charge of Reserve Bank put down the interest rates – and why it is sooooo bad for our country.
