The powerlessness of positive thinking – Barbara Ehrenreich

“Take the issue of class inequality – how can that be an issue if anyone can become rich by thinking about it?
If any one of us can just attract wealth to ourselves: no issue.

The powerlessness of positive thinking. It always envisions you as a lone individual.. redesigning the world to fit your ideas. But we do have strength, we do have power. We have collective power, which we could use to make changes which would end a great deal of unnecessary suffering in the world.”
