The global monetary system was set up to lock in the benefits of colonialism, and it's still looting today; are we the guardians of each other or the "mobster's wife," wanting the mink coat and "blind" to the carnage? The truth is, we who live in the industrialised developed world - regardless of our ethnic origins - are now the benefactors of this looting masquerading as trade. We were born into it, it is the water we swim in, yet it is now time we were as fish who notice what they are swimming in.
