Isn't this how the want adds should really read? It is expected as we cross the threshold each morning and enter our jobs we must set not just Democracy at the door but discount our precious time as we submit our lives to a system that has little benefit to us. Our sense of wonder is suspended, our bodies and minds temporarily though also ultimately permanently leased to a sociopathic corporate machine that has little regard for the qualities that make up our humanity. If we try to escape in our own niche they sniff us out and force competition down our throats commanding ownership not just of our markets...but ultimately our lives with a pocket politician holstered on their hips and an endless financial chest to shield them from any challenge and clear away every hurdle. This way of life has infiltrated and controls our every waking action now. There is little escape, there is little ability to live life independently or to express the qualities that make up our humanity. Our species has been tethered and tied and forced to comply with something that can not and will not consider the most very basic fundamental qualities within us nor our natural desire to be independent and self reliant... I now believe that anyone who can thrive within these conditions has learned how to set aside being human, to suspend their own natural makeup, and learned how to submit willingly to control, and quite probably devoid of any ability for independent thought; they don't just comprise the system, they also collectively perpetuate it...I see our collective failure to demand different, to demand that corporations form themselves around our society rather than the other way around. When we use the term jobs...we must also ask the question of what those jobs really serve especially when it is we who serve them and are being farmed for our labor with as little in return as possible for our output. We must also see that education is not the answer to this much deeper problem.
