Underlying the power and wealth of the 1% is a set of myths about the way the world works. The idea that a society based on competition is natural and inevitable, the assumption that inequality is justified because of the talent and hard work of the super-rich and the belief that as Margaret Thatcher said, ‘there is no alternative’ to a system that puts profit before everything else. By educating ourselves we can begin to challenge these ideas and expose them for the myths that they are. Through events, discussion groups, sharing experiences and writing, we explore exciting, inspiring ideas about how things can be different.
