"Absolute power corrupts absolutely."
Many people who care about our city and work and write and fight to fix its problems say things like, “the system is broken.” I’m not one of those people. I believe the system is working exactly how it’s meant to work. It favours our most wealthy people and businesses, and even the services our city provides that appear to be about creating an equitable city are there to benefit the status quo. Public transit carries people to work for those businesses and relieves traffic so commerce can move freely on our highways. Employment programs and city colleges train people to work for those same businesses, and in the meanwhile they aren’t counted in the unemployment statistics to give the politicians a big win. Stay woke fam.
