None of us are free of it.
We are taught it from birth.
It’s a part of nature, 'the circle of life', we primates have just expanded upon it. 'Civilized' it.
Keep the majority of prey either working, not only to survive,
but to line the pockets of their crediti...I mean predators, then invest it back into that which they have just produced.
We become slaves to our own wants and desires.
From cradle to the grave we willingly tie the yoke about our own necks.
A vicious cycle.
Manipulate all into believing they need more, they need to keep up with
whatever is being marketed.
Work, work, work, spend, spend, spend, insurance for this, insurance for
that, pay with a pound of flesh, your flesh, my flesh.
We are told how we should look, what we should wear (to be ‘fashionable’),
what to believe, what type of life we should lead.
It’s just all too frustrating.
Puppets of the economy being manipulated by puppet puppeteers.
(Yes, I know I've said it all before, that there are repeats within the confines of this blog, I only do so with things I find important, interesting, funny or pertinent. Just like history repeats itself, so do I. And neither of us ever learn from it.)
Yeah, I'm in a mood.....
