"This is not going to end well. Not unless we speak up. Not for anyone amongst us. This one will not pass by your door, or mine. We're approaching decision time. For the world, for your life and mine. It's time to pick sides." http://www.nakedcapitalism.com/2015/02/ilargi-ukraine-trapped-narrative.html
Imagine the great depression. The power elite, who own most of everything, have broken their money machine. Because investors aren't thriving, the whole system begins to shut down. Many millions come close to starvation and many die or suffer greatly. This is not because the goods can't be made and distributed. The factories, farms and mines are intact. The workers are ready, willing and begging for work even if they are a little less able due to hunger. The poverty and privation exists because the rich assholes who own the world have broken their perpetual motion of money machine and won't allow anyone to fix it, if that means losing Wall Street's control of the economy.
Many of their hangers on have perished by loss of income or desperation driven suicide. But most of the rich are still thriving: a small fraction of them, perhaps, somewhat less lavishly than before the crash. [of 1929 . . . of 2008, of ...] So God forbid that we the people take control of our economy, reopen the factories and take the produce of the corporate factory farms and monopolistic food processors and distributors (finance managers and chemical company overlord/bankers) that we may live. Centrally controlled economy by Wall St. is the only planning of the system we depend on for life that will be tolerated. People owning and operating our own means of survival is godless collectivism. Just ask the geniuses at FOX [propaganda] NEWS.
No! The debt we owe them is sacred. No Jubilee that Moses and other Mesopotamian priests and kings declared when wealth became so concentrated that the system broke and the slates needed cleansing before the economy could work again. We've progressed too much since that day to let common sense fixes such as universal debt forgiveness rule, by thwarting the concupiscence and greed of the ruling elite parasites. That they'll have it all back again and we'll owe them again in no time if the system itself isn't changed is not acceptable to our owners.
I fear I'm wasting my time. I fear you've drunk so much of the capitalist kool-aid that you fear you can't live without the masters who own you. That they're an existential threat to all of us and our progeny is a thought you may not, will not and cannot think. That it's time to do something different, even if it's wrong, is heresy. That the current system is hopelessly flawed and must end in disaster should be obvious but isn't is a tribute to the power and skill of your programmers (the ultra con) and the algorithms that rule what you call thought. If you like the capitalist system, if you think you thrive in it and you're worth less than five million, you're a weak cowardly brain dead fool. But then there are none of us who weren't meant to be billionaires. We've just had some bad breaks and we'll all be rich tomorrow. We really don't want to look at the numbers now do we? Don't need to. You know you'll be one of the elect.
