I am saddened at the passing of José Saramago, who I consider one of the people who has most influenced my thinking and is therefore one of the people responsible for opening my eyes.
He once said: "Is a world in which fewer than 300 people own as much as the poorest 40% a great achievement?"
I keep asking people that question in various ways, but I always get the same answer: "But I cannot do anything about it. The problem is too great for just one person to solve." Or, "I'll sign the petition, but then I have to get on with my job otherwise my boss will complain that I'm not working." etc etc
Good bye Saramago and thank you for sharing your soul with us.
