The globalized economy is a colossal Ponzi Scheme in which the vast majority survive on the bread crumbs falling off the table. The possibility of 7 billion people achieving a consumption-oriented lifestyle is zero, so the World Bank conveniently set the poverty line at $1.25/day to legalize global slavery. As long as someone else's children are doing the suffering, it's "all good". Post-2008, this illusion was extended merely by plundering all future generations.

It Didn't Have To Be This Way
Somewhere along the way, people lost track of what's important. Sold out.
Corporations took over. Bought up the system.
The infinite growth model went into overdrive
Human beings were commodified
Life was commodified
The infinite growth model declared war on nature, the last constraint on profit
Reality will now be the final arbiter, rendering judgement on the hairless monkeys
