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
Originally from Ethiopia with roots to Atse Tewodros II, Teodrose is a former community organizer whose writing was incorporated into Barack Obama's South Carolina primary victory speech in 2008. He pivoted away from politics and decided to stand for collective justice after experiencing the reality of the forgotten masses. His writing defies conventional wisdom and challenges readers to look outside the constraints of labels and ideologies that serve to splinter the people. Teodrose uses his pen to give a voice to the voiceless and to speak truth to power.
