The arrogance and greed of those in powerful positions, not just political ones, is what has ruined this world for the rest of us. Their thirst for power and control knows no boundaries! They keep us ignorant and deceive us with an illusionary world. They distract us from realizing what is truly going on. They bombard us through their controlled media with products and suggestions that make us focus almost entirely on attaining these goods and false lifestyle. They program us through the media to believe that material pursuits must be our primary objective in life. They convince us that looking out just for ourselves and loved ones in a material, selfish way, is our primary mission. They poison our minds and soul while taking away our dignity with unfair practices and policies in all areas essential to our well-being. They dictate what we should strive for, what we should think, believe, eat, wear, drive, listen to, etc. They manipulate our heart and mind with fear when they realize that many are waking up from the stupor they have had us in from almost the beginning of our lives. They educate our children not to be self-sufficient, creative, critical thinkers, and achievers but to develop a “pay-check” mentality and believe that working for their “great” corporations and – within their limits – is their only hope for survival and success. They persecute free thinkers. They have enslaved us to fulfill their own selfish needs, wants, and agenda with deceptive “values” and proclamations.
If you think that you are free, think again when you drive to your workplace to spend almost half of your day away from your children, spouse, or enjoyable pursuits so you can take home a fraction, a miserable fraction, of what you put in your employer’s pocket. If you think you are free, think again when you are trying to figure out how to make your mortgage or rent payment on time, keep your utilities on, put decent food on the table for your family, send your kids to college. If you think you are free, think again when you have to sacrifice your intellectual or favorite pursuits to ensure that you bring enough money home to meet the family’s needs. If you think that you are free, think again when an employer fires you for no reason or budget cutbacks without giving you enough notice to find new employment first. Yet, you have to give your employer at least a 30-day notice to hire your replacement!
