Capitalism is squeezing millions of people beyond their ability to cope. Yet policy makers are more concerned with profitability..
Most people do not agree with “business first” policies, but our many organizations are too small to make a difference. Why aren’t they bigger? Why aren’t we united? Where is the mighty roar of protest that we need?
While professionals who defend the status quo are clearly not on our side, most social-change organizations are also led by professionals who think they can manage the system better. That’s no solution when the problem is the system itself – a system that puts profits before people.
This booklet explains why professionals refuse to challenge capitalism, how they promote pessimism and passivity, and why we need working people to lead the fight for a better life and a better world.
