The economical future of the planet

This apocalyptic painting by German artist Norbert Stockhus might depict the future of the planet if the current neoliberal economical trend is allowed to go on. The rich have erected a fortress in which they defend the wealth they have amassed against the poor left in the arid wasteland outside.

A response to Sunday Scribblings #108 - the future of the planet.

A picture's worth a thousand words. You only have to think of parts of Africa to see that this vision is fast becoming a reality'

I don't think that the painting is apocalyptic. We are facing the present.
