I wrote yesterday of the vile nature of some so-called philanthropists and how they use subterfuge and theatrics to hide their malicious endeavors. Today’s Ghion Cast takes off on this theme and delves further into the very issues most of us are rightfully outraged about. There is a connective tissue that binds up most of the injustices that lie at the core of human suffering throughout the world. I discuss how politics, philanthropy and social norms are all lending to our continued anxiety about the future and contributes to the suffering of people globally. Check out the Ghion Cast below and feel free to interact and start discussions among yourself in the comment section below or in social media using #1PercentLies
Teodrose was born in Ethiopia the same year Emperor Haile Selassie was deposed by the communist Derg junta. The great grandson five generations removed of Atse (emperor) Tewodros Kassa II, the greatest king of Ethiopia, Teodrose is clearly influenced by the history and his connection to Ethiopia. Through his experiences growing up as first generation refugee in America, Teodrose writes poignantly about the universal experiences of joys, pains and a hope for a better tomorrow that binds all of humanity.
Teodrose has written extensively about the intersection of politics, economic policies, identity, and history. He is the author of "Serendipity's Trace" and newly released "Soul to Soil", two works that inspect the ways we are dissected as a people and shows how we can overcome injustice through the inclusive vision of togetherness.
