Andrea mi segnala questa intervista a Thomas Pogge:
The language is not at all innocent. The language that we speak is the language of the rich. Another example is the word redistribution. People always say that the poor are poor and we have to redistribute away from the rich to the poor. But, of course, the whole system is one that redistributes to the advantage of the rich; all the rules are designed such. And then when they have so much and the poor so little, they say “Oh”, we have to redistribute a little to the poor. We should not allow that language to win. We should say that we do not want redistributribution we want a different distribution that assures poor people of a minimally decent share of the social product and of a genuine chance to participate proportionately in national economic growth.
