ISSUE 3 - POOR RICH
This number starts from a question and an unequivocal social presupposition: why do the poor allow the rich to be such? Why do the poor like the rich even though they can't have the same benefits? The magazine reflects on how the real tyrants today are those who hold the greatest concentrations of economic power. With money they are able to greatly influence politics, the environment, health and even social norms.
On the other hand, a 99% of the population who for the most part supports this system, in the idealization of wealth and a lifestyle that it will never be able to achieve. And someone who, however, does not fit.
Inside he reflects on tampontax, food monopolists, university-companies, democratic confederalism, the challenge of environmentalism and much more on the theme of extreme wealth and its distortions.
