Thought of the Day

I came across this observation from George Orwell:
We all live by robbing Asiatic coolies, and those of us who are "enlightened" all maintain that those coolies ought to be set free: but our standard of living, and hence our "enlightenment," demands that the robbery shall continue.
For those of us who want social justice and a sustainable planet the only answer is to be significantly poorer.
