Tony Benn

"This is a clip from Michael Moore's film "Sicko", which is an excellent documentary about the US health care system, as well as the socialized health care systems of France, Britain and Canada. It is profound and brilliantly done, and is a must see.

In this clip, former British MP Tony Benn talks about power and democracy, and how empowering people is what is essential to bring a higher quality of life for most people. For, when people are empowered, they will demand more and shift the system in their own favour. The more empowered a society is, the less they will be exploited by their political and economic systems, and the better off the majority will be.

So, if you want to make a better world a reality (which you should), it is up to you to feel empowered. Feel hopeful. Feel worthy of more, and then demand it. Demand a higher quality of life for yourself and for all of those around you."
