Money, Power and Inequality
People who have wealth wield enormous influence in political and social life
In order to continue to wield the influence they accumulate more wealth for themselves
In accumulating personal wealth they hoard resources and restrict others from accessing those resources
In restricting access to resources they create scarcity which benefits themselves as they make a profit
This creates inequality and poverty in society
So your vote does not matter unless you change this model of development where wealth and resources are controlled by very few people who are unwilling to distribute such wealth. If national wealth is redistributed, what follows is a redistribution of Power.
