One of the problems I see with the leaders of not just America, but the world, is the way they keep us all “chasing our tails” so to speak. We are all expected to work so many hours a week that we will never get back just for the privilege to get enough money to pay all the bills our society has conveniently established for our very existence. The rest of our hard-earned money is given away due to the constant brainwashing that we can’t live without their needless crap.
The problem I have with this is the fact that the world is in such real, desperate need in so many ways but most of our jobs are established to keep the folks on Wall Street busy and wealthy and the rest of us busy and poor; instead of allowing us to make better use of our time feeding the poor and really getting to know others hopefully with the goal of finally putting an end to war. Peace does not bring profit at this time but war does. This has to change. Most of our jobs are false busy work giving the illusion of purpose. We all do have a purpose but it eludes most of us. We are not allowed to help others; in fact helping another harms the bottom line of most, if not all, businesses.
This disturbs me since most companies are needless and pointless. Most of our businesses manufacture things that most of us don’t want or need and we then pay others, such as advertisers and salespeople, to try and convince us that we need it desperately. Pathetic really. That’s why most of the stuff we buy is shoved aside for other newer or different stuff and we don’t miss the old stuff a bit. With the world and it’s people in the state that it is in, it is a sin to expect our world economy to be based on consumerism.
Instead our world leaders need to establish a culture and society that thrives on altruism and peace as soon as possible.
