Humanity is not the problem.

That's true. The whole system works against them.
I could be a WINNER without money, could you believe it?
But then I got to room for my bikes on the roads. The system is
designed that way.

HOW THE POLITICAL JUNGLE WORKS
Politics works like this: Big People of Big Country buy Big People of
Little Country, who, by the way, will be elected in "democratic
elections" thanks to big bucks; Big People of Big Country give big
loans to Little Country (of course, to buy "made in Big Country"); Big
People of Little Country pocket a big chunk and invest it in the Big
Country, without ever investing in real development (education,
health, the environment, etc); Little People of Little Country work
for ever to pay back what they never got; Big People of Little Country
thank Big People of Big Country in big ceremony, and promise to repay
the big debt; and Little People of Little Country get big promises,
just like Little People of Big Country. And they lived happily ever
after... (Moral: The Big Fish eats the Little Fish. Well, unless the
Little Fish get organized...)

Thank you. Some day, someone will notice that neither one solves
problems in the long term. But they do get the VOTES the politicians
so desperately need in the short term.
