Challenging the dominance of billionaires and corporate giants

Blanche Cameron shares Vandana Shiva and Kartikey Shiva’s “Oneness vs. the 1% Shattering Illusions, Seeding Freedom.”. Vandana Shiva, a globally acclaimed environmental thinker and activist, challenges the dominance of billionaires and corporate giants. Through meticulous analysis, she reveals the blind pursuit of profit, resulting in widespread havoc and inequality. Shiva unveils the dangers of philanthrocapitalism, exposing its undemocratic tendencies and totalitarian ideologies. Instead, she advocates for a return to real knowledge, intelligence, wealth, work, and well-being. Her vision encompasses the restoration of individual freedoms in every sphere of life, from food and healthcare to information and relationships. Basing her analysis on explosive little-known facts, Shiva exposes the 1%’s model of philanthrocapitalism, which is about deploying unaccountable money to bypass democratic structures, derail diversity, and impose totalitarian ideas, based on One Science, One Agriculture and One History. She calls for the “resurgence of real knowledge, real intelligence, real wealth, real work, real well-being”, so that people can reclaim their right to: Live Free. Think Free. Breathe Free. Eat Free.
