Trudeau blames corporate elites for rise in global public anger



“It’s time to pay a living wage, to pay your taxes, and to give your workers the benefits – and peace of mind – that come with stable, full-time contracts....
Increasing inequality has made citizens distrust their governments. Distrust their employers,” Mr. Trudeau said Friday evening at the banquet.  “And we’re watching that anxiety transform into anger on an almost daily basis. It follows that people’s natural defence mechanism in times of stress and anxiety is to hunker down and recoil inward. To give into cynicism. To retreat from one another. But it’s time for us, as leaders in politics and business, to step up.”

...and allow companies to sue governments if they make laws which affect their profits. That MIGHT be one good thing about leaving the EU. Certainly not going to bring about equality, is it?

With the increasing hold that big companies have, along with the rise in robotics, one can't help but think "Bladerunner".

And just exactly what would this global public anger group replace the corporate elite with???

Oh, I know--lets try one huge (planet-wide) collective of the masses--what could go wrong????
