Today there are literally hundreds of millions of people protesting their economic situations in dozens of countries in every single region of the world. While these protests are valid, and government corruption is the equilibrium state for all governments worldwide, the missing component is the ability of protesters to connect the dots and determine the underlying common denominator in the terrible economic state worldwide that has resulted in the middle class being decimated in the US and the horrific 15% suicide rates among all deaths in the 25 to 34 year old demographic in Spain.
Below we talk about the power of the lone dissenter to connect the dots of global economic disenfranchisement for billions of people worldwide, and why the silence of good people working for morally bankrupt industries is just as powerful an enabler of economic destruction as is the courage of a lone dissenter to re-focus and re-shape protests and revolutions on only the most pertinent and salient of issues.
