It is becoming more and more obvious to many that the present economic structure of the world is in tatters and must be changed. For example, the economies of the USA, Europe and Japan are in the doldrums; and China, so recently the powerhouse, is slowing down. Only India, where millions still live and die in poverty, and Brazil hold aloft the banner of ‘success’.
Admittedly, this is a very partial view of the economies of the world but it is largely the case that the nations are languishing and know not how to prosper. The old tricks no longer work: university graduates feel lucky to serve in bars; the poor are poorer than ever and are thankful for food banks; the middle classes struggle to ‘keep up’; the rich are richer than ever but believe they are over-taxed. Governments try, but their priorities are mistaken and their methods no longer are relevant to the problems which face the world.
The people, however, who suffer most from government inaction or wrong thinking, see clearly their own needs. They look for freedom, justice, the right to work and a world at peace in which their families can thrive. Their demands are more and more being given voice. For little longer will the mass of men restrain the anger and frustration which is their lot. They trust no longer the words or the actions of governments done in their name. For too long, and too often, they have been deceived and cheated of their birthright. They see this in simple terms but with clear eyes, trusting no longer the machinations of the powerful rich. The voice of the people is rising, nay, has risen, and is calling men to declare themselves.
The people, clear-eyed and unafraid, have looked into the future and have seen the possibility of the fulfilment of their aspirations for a just and peaceful world. They know that this will not happen by itself but that they must, together with their brothers and sisters, take the power of fulfilment into their own hands. They know too that the way may be hard and dangerous but that the prize is too precious for them to fail, for it is the prize of brotherhood, of justice and peace, and a better, simpler and truer life for all. They know that no sacrifice is too great for this achievement and are willing to die in its name.
Thus will the people of the world inherit the birthright of freedom and justice that is their due. Thus will the voice of the people rise louder and clearer in the months and years ahead.
