No substitute for economic justice
We would like to think that we can somehow trust our quasi-elected leaders to somehow know what they are doing and for some reason act in the general interest of the collective nation. But unless government policy is enlightened by knowledge the law of rent and committed to the implementation of an equitable tax system, you can be sure that your country, and the world in general, will be steadily advancing toward the perfection of an owner-slave economy. Only the basic reform of taxing land and resource values and eliminating taxation on all forms of production can provide the answer to poverty and inequality on this planet. All other proposed solutions are fraudulent distractions designed to soften opposition and derail inquiry into the structural cause of the problem of progress and poverty.
