This Little Spaceship
There have been many words written about Marx and his ideas. Many think he was wrong. The 99 probably do not.
I wonder if those that find him wrong would think the same if they were one of the people on a spaceship, where it is clear that the wealth and health of each person is directly related to the health and wealth of all the other people on board. It seems clear that food should be shared, wealth should be shared and Marx’ ideas suddenly seem to be more of a fair shake of the ‘stick’. Imagine watching someone on board starve to death while you have extra food. Imagine watching someone die of a preventable disease while you have the medicine in your possession.
Life seems to be more even, more flatly assessed when it is all in your face on that little spaceship, and that seems right enough.
This planet is moving through space at more than 65,000 mph. It has limited resources. There is only so much clean potable water. The climate has no thermostat, but it can be affected. There is only so much food available at any given moment. There is no captain of this spaceship Earth, but it is a spaceship.
It is a spaceship under mutinous chaos. It is up to the people on board to work together to ensure that all survive. Without cooperation we will all die!
