I don’t think we’ll ever beat Abbott and co with direct conflict. They are the product of a system that develops and encourages their behaviour. In turn, that is an indictment of our culture.
We need to give up the idea of beating them and, instead, work on changing everything around them.
Grow some of your own food, make savings on your energy use, generate some of your own power, try to be less dependent on oil and petrol. These are some of the more superficial things we can do.
Deeper, we need to develop an increased awareness of community and interdependence so that we may help each other and create a world within which the current crop of economic criminals could never arise.
