There is no such thing as equality and we all accepted it. Because we all benefited from it. All but the lowest in this food chain. They were powerless because we constructed a system that forced them to participate or otherwise suffer immense repercussions. Over time, however, the gap widened, and the circle of people profiting from the established social contracts became increasingly exclusive. The internet gave us true freedom of speech and the power to organize ourselves.
Since I was born, this is probably the fourth "once-in-a-lifetime" financial crisis we're heading for.
But I think our whole system is one big, deepening crisis, and it's collapsing before our very eyes. It is inherently out of balance and is essentially based on the assumption that we all agree that people take advantage of others. Whether it is corporations capitalizing on the working class or wealthy nations that abuse their powers to gain advantages in the global scheme of things.

You cannot be anti-racist silently.
White people, it's your job to collect white people at a march for Black people. NBPOC- it's your job to collect NBPOC at a march for Black people. "Don't police other people's-" nuh uh. Black people have asked you how to behave at their marches. If you don't like it, get the fuck out the march. Your focus is protecting Black people at the fucking march about *protecting Black lives*

The built-in screenshot sharing tool on the #3DS is annoying to use (and it might shut down at some point), so I'm making an alternative.
It uploads the desired image and gives you a QR code to scan with your phone. So much easier than logging into Twitter from the 3DS browser.
