It's no secret that, for much of the world today, governments are broken, economies are struggling, and unemployment among the young is in the 25%-50% range. Among other things, this is a clear recipe for global revolution. If we look at the U.S. alone, we see that the government is completely dysfunctional, wholly owned and controlled by corporates and their lobbies, unable to return to a true republic or democracy. Workers pay taxes and get relatively poorer over time, corporations pay little or none and get richer by the minute. And a huge and inexorably growing sector of tax money goes to the military. Now imagine you're 25, burdened by a whopping college debt load, and can't find a real job. What do you do? You start a company.
