Reminder that nothing is "just the way it is". It's the way we make it.
Having a whole process to determine whether or not somebody is allowed to exist in a different country isn't "just the way it is". Humans did that, and we can undo it.
People starving despite there being enough food isn't "just the way it is". Humans did that, and we can change it.
Your quality of life being determined by how much money you inherited isn't "just the way it is". Humans did that, and we can get rid of it.
