When the System is the Problem, System Change is the Solution

He discovers the old idea that more profits for the 1% will trickle down to enrich us all. Obama’s “hope and change” mostly fizzled as the capitalist system kept worsening inequalities and injustices. The same now happens to Trump’s “Make America Great Again.” System Change is knocking at America’s door; are we prepared to answer?
