Indi I’ve thought this for a number of years, since becoming acquainted with some friends from different countries, including Cuba, Iran, Venezuela, Zimbabwe, and even your own country, Sri Lanka, and seeing our predicament also.
I once voiced that opinion at work (aerospace), standing in a canteen queue, and it almost cost me the job I had at the time, following an incredibly hostile reaction from folk in the queue who didn’t know me but overheard my conversation with a colleague, and reported me to others as someone to worry about.
That is the level of systemic colonialism, at the root of many other prejudices blinding folk to their own slavery, still at work in UK my friend.
I hope and trust this will change, when it becomes clear that economics of scarcity is the root underlying problem of all, hopefully not long now.
Thanks for posting!
