The world has now 946 billionaires, congratulations, these are the guys you were living for during the last decade. Not just you, your government too, most probably.
Some of these guys earned last year 100000 (a hundred thousands) times more than you. That is only possible if somebody from your public administration helped, intentionally or not, but democratically nevertheless, certainly in a non-violent way. Which means your administration is not public enough. Which means you're not paying attention enough: that's partly why education, health and research is underfunded in your neighborhood.
When was the last time you checked if your state administration (parliament representative etc.) uses commercial software when there is a workable free software replacement available?
Next time when your education/health/research minister says there are no funds, you should ask him what operating system is his public office using.
