While there is money - corruption and inequality will exist.

So in my view, we have 2 choices (as humankind).

1 - We accept that the notion of money brings with it famine, war, poverty, corruption etc (which seem to be what's happned). And accept that there will always be a struggle to even out the effects of the mechanics of money.

2 - Or we try and figure out how we can run this planet without it.

The human condition, and the need to strive. In essence, to do better, and when that happens for an individual, others covet.

So the blame falls on both. The need to be better, and the need to covet.

It boils completely and entirely down to ego.

Afraid we're never going to escape that one.
