Do you believe in magic? Can we speak or write certain words and symbols or icons and effect or transmute material reality?

Most people would say no. Most people, even well educated scientists and mathematicians, also believe that the mathematical description of reality provided by Einstein and others, indicate distortions of material reality like time dilation and distance contraction actually occur, because words and symbols indicate such. Economists believe that buying and selling stocks and bonds in the marketplace long after the IPOs that invested money in production, actually grow the economy. They also fail to note the parasitization intrinsic to buying and selling goods in transactions inserted unnecessarily between producers and consumers. Time and space mutation and making money from money are both magical phenomena that otherwise rational people believe, because the words and symbols used to describe reality indicate them.

Well the facts are money is a token, a symbol, that represents real goods and material services; time and space are not things but merely useful concepts that help us order real events of matter and energy. Money without the goods it represents is a useless and pointless thing. It's expansion and contraction by bankers, "investors" and middlemen unrelated to material production, are parasitic activities that destroy economy and produce nothing but symbols entered on ledgers. The mathematical description of reality is not the the reality itself and there are anomalies that occur at points in the evaluation of formulas that simply make no sense. They are failures of the description and do not indicate distortions of reality, like time travel or alternate dimensions.

When actual scientists and economists think their words and incantations morph physical reality, is it any wonder that politicians and actual human beings believe what we're told about a political economy dominated by greedy rich parasites that leads to Dr. Pangloss's "best of all possible worlds," even when such belief flies in the face of the dissipative reality that afflicts us ... if we have the courage to look at the truth vis a vis? The words of the elites are transmuted into tokens/monies in their accounts, as we, who do the work that creates the real goods and services that sustain human life, grow deeper in debt to the masters who buy our labor and own everything else already.

The magical theater of life we're living at present can't end well!

So what can we expect to have in the future? Will we get what's fair? What we deserve? No.. We get what we take, just like the masters who rule us. Morality and justice may motivate but have nothing to do with reality. In the end they're just words that rationalize deeds by self, friend or foe. Reality is deeds. It is what it is, not what anyone says it is.

Where do we find what we'll take? We find it where it is: in the holdings of the owners. They hold it. We need it to live. If we want to live decently we must take it from them. Else we are doomed to hope to live while we die at the accelerated rate, because that's all we can afford. That's all they will willingly leave us from their takings.

Consider: "During his campaign, Trump said over and over again that he would stick it to the wealthy by closing the egregious carried interest loophole. Guess what? His disgraceful tax bill did nothing to address it & even Fox Business commentators are fed up with his broken promises." from …

How money is distributed is a choice.

Here's AOC on CNN spelling out the immorality of how money is distributed in the USA.

"We write unlimited blank checks for war. We just wrote a $2 trillion check for the GOP tax cut and nobody asked those folks how are they gonna pay for it. So my question is why is it that our pockets are only empty when it comes to education and healthcare for our kids. Why are pockets only empty when we talk about 100% renewable energy that is going to save this planet and allow our children to thrive. We only have empty pockets when it comes to the morally right things to do. But when it comes to tax cuts for billionaires and when it comes to unlimited war we seem to be able to invent that money very easily and to me it belies a lack of moral priorities that people have right now especially the Republican party."

And even Warren's health care assumes paying the full freight costs. The profits of bankers, insurance companies, investors and executive compensation may all be eliminated. I'd bet that would reduce the medical industry costs by at least half ... maybe two thirds. So instead of 20 to 30 trillion over ten years the taxpayers would only have one trillion per year or less to pay for better health care than we can afford today. The practitioners could still get rich but we can save a fortune by starving out the corporate parasites, who take most of the profits and do none of the work.

Exactly. Healthcare could and should be single payer, not for profit and universal. Do all 3 things and the costs would come way down.

The establishment uses the complexity of the healthcare issue in this country to dupe people into thinking we need to keep the status quo profit exploitative system. This way they can ensure the continuation of enriching the wealthy stockholders of medical/health insurance firms.

People need to use their brains and think about this in depth. A true Bernie Sanders style Medicare For All is what is needed! Healthcare is a human right!

The Wall St Oligarchs are capricious, vicious, evil and parasitic rulers, just as were the feudal monarchs and royalty from whom they inherited their foul inhuman character.
