The vast majority of the 'problems' in the world today rarely if ever inconvenience a small minority, wherever they live, the ruling class. They are not, of course, represented in nearly half of the world's population lacking basic toilet facilities. They can scoff at a government promoting rats as a cheaper option on the menu and afford to source their food and thus avoid eating shit. They can, by way of contrast, boast of an exclusive set of problems. Senator John McCain, for example, has difficulty rembering how many homes he owns! Workers of the world, is it not time we pulled the chain on this rotten social system?
