The rise of modern society is an interesting thing, isn’t it? We buy, sell, and trade. We own, rent or lease. We exchange this thing called currency-which we are told is valuable but upon closer inspection is nothing more than a piece of paper; a trifle of what we are told is a precious metal. This is the system we were born into, the one we were brought up from birth to believe in. This is the system known as capitalism. This is the system we allow to dictate our lives.
The American Dream. The ability to use our capitalist economy to accumulate wealth and thereby nice things-as long as we work hard. Many of us work a day to day job, we pay for shelter, we pay for food and water to sustain us, we pay taxes to those who worship the dollar because they created it. They have lied to us all, and yet we continue to blindly follow as they accumulate more and more of the wealth we were promised. This is no longer the dream. It is a nightmare.
The jobs we do to increase our own societal standing are in fact destroying any chance for us to grow. To prosper. Our passions have ran through our fingers like water as our lives pass like sand through an hour glass. When you look back what have you missed? Your children growing up? That chance to see the world? The instrument you wanted to learn to play? That book you were always meaning to write? You just never had the time, and now you never will. Not only has this system taken up your precious time, it has consumed your life. While the rich got richer, you only got poorer, regardless of those endless hours you put in, and why? Because you had bills to pay, you had mouths to feed, and meanwhile taxes and cost of living were rising while your wages just stayed the same.
You feel like you should be in a better position by now. Ready to retire and enjoy what life you have left but you keep working well into your golden years. You once thought that this is when you would finally have time. You were wrong. Dead wrong. Soon you will just be dead, but that doesn’t matter to you anymore as you died inside years ago to chase the green stuff. To get that high that you were promised from the dealers peddling it from Wall Street.
This is only a glimpse into the future I gift you with. It is a future that is inevitable if we do not band together and show the world a better way. On our own we are weak and defenseless against our controllers using the system of greed to keep us running their errands. Together we are a powerful force to be reckoned with. Let us escape from the madness and find true peace and wealth in the time we are given here on this earth. You only have one life after all…right?
