Daniel Bell published his magnum opus The Coming of Post-industrial Society in 1973 and Post-Industrial production has formed the world economy for more than half a century and functions on the basis of winner-takes-all, and this system is now entering a new recession. Today, 26 individuals own wealth equivalent to assets of half of world population and progressive taxation is missing in many parts of the world to address this inequality and injustice, and seldom one sees wealthy individuals like William Buffet to strive voluntarily to compensate such inequalities that are the root cause of the uprisings we are now witnessing in major cities of Middle East, Latin America, Hong Kong, Paris, and showed itself during Obama years in the USA as the Occupy Movement. In democracies like the USA, solutions are sought by plans such as Bernie Sanders' and Elizabeth Warren's in the forthcoming US election. In dictatorial countries like Iran under the Islamist regime, people's uprising is suppressed by the government blaming it on foreign interference and instead of curing the illness by progressive taxation, they cut off the Internet as a remedy to stop people's uprising.
