Markos you posted as I did. Please, I have seen, smelt and touched first hand the poverty depicted in your first photo. We here are all wealthy in the bigger scheme of things, I don't think Len would dispute that. A new form of governance needed - indeed. But before that we need a new form of thinking about our place in the world and our relationship to the earth. Until enough numbers of people in the first world are prepared to seriously re-think the current way of life not a lot of progress can be made. I live in hope that I will see it in my life time. I should also say that I have seen (and continue to see) a great deal in the third world which does nothing for my confidence in the ability of humankind to make the radical change either.
