Servitude is a choice, slavery is not. Many of the world’s poor, the common man, were merely slaves that got to pick their own masters, though in a bad economy there is little choice. If they are wealthy enough or care to go into debt, they may pay for degrees and certifications that make it possible to be paid more than those without certification, but they are slaves none the less. Our world economy is based on man needing possessions. It was slowing tweaked to prevent most men from ever really owning their own homes or land to work and survive. It has been deliberately shaped into an all-encompassing, take everything from everyone. You are no longer allowed to make your own living, not really. There are too many hands outstretched demanding their cut, and it is not just the governments, who are usually the last paid anyway.
I am disgusted the way everyone has been pigeonholed into submission by endless rules and regulations making it impossible for anyone to be free. This has to stop. This is America, or have they really sold this country down the river or across the ocean. I remember seeing some YouTube video that Americans were all owned somehow by our social security numbers. That those numbers were somehow traded on the stock exchange or some fool notion. Whether true or not, still a fool notion. Most people in positions of power, get carried away with themselves and don’t use good judgement because their ego gets in the way. Egomania propels these freaks to want to run the world and is the same disorder that makes rational and reasonable thought impossible. They appear unable to consider the long-term ramifications of their decisions and actions as it effects the country and it’s people. Hence the country will end up in the toilet sooner or later bringing yet another revolution and yet another soon to come bad government because only men with big egos and money, of course, will run to run it back into the ground. The ones that would have been beating their hairy chests, screaming and beating everyone down in the time of Neanderthals.
When the news broke of the deadly fire in a factory in Bangladesh, it reminded me of the ignored stories of so many of their farmers committing suicide the last number of years because of their endless economic struggles all due to big businesses who will at this time remain nameless. Of course, all the American companies involved in this sweat shop rushed to try to “save their brand, ” people be darned. They can deny it, but it is these kinds of greedy companies that have destroyed the world’s economy and many people’s lives trying to increase profits, not save money. There is a difference between trying to stay in business and making wrong decision out of desperation, and just being disgustingly greedy by the common practice of trying to improve profits each year. All banks and big businesses run this way and have for many years. That’s what’s wrong with our economy. The American government caved to the greedy banks and large corporations in an attempt to get even more money from other countries with various trade agreements that sold America out. Our American government is as much to blame as the companies involved in these poor people’s death because they encouraged this by their trade agreements with little regard on how their Wall Street trading profits effect the common man around the world. We cannot sit idly by while the wealthy control and systematically destroy our planet and all living things on it, including man.
I can definitely feel it coming in the air. Maybe not tonight, but soon.
