Corporate America is stealing our future one dollar at a time. They have brainwashed us into believing that a neoclassical system they’ve put in place is the one that will create prosperity as they achieve wealth and power. The players of this neoclassical system are corporations, banks, politicians, and the wealthy elite. Their’s is a systems of Socialism, but we don’t see that because we’re driving the wheels of their machine through a Capitalist market. Essentially, the capitalist non-elite are supporting the socialist elite. I’ve been reading and watching a lot about this lately due in part to our ridiculous Presidential election coming up and also because I’m tired of being a pawn in their game of becoming ever richer.
Our elite have convinced us that the only way to be happy is to acquire debt that purchases the goods and services produced largely in other countries. Debt, as I’ve come to realize, is basically a modern form of slavery. We are slaves to the corporations, holding the majority of wealth in the country, that take what they want even when we don’t have it. The 2008 housing bubble crisis proves this point to me in the form of thousands of foreclosures around the country. The people who couldn’t afford predatory lending practices paid the price, they lost their home. The banks and mortgage companies, left with sub-prime defaulted mortgages, got bailed out by the government. They created over $8 trillion of new debt, created money out of nothing, to keep the companies that had become so pervasive in our economy that we couldn’t let them fail. What if we had? Where would we be? Our country wouldn’t have died. We would still be here, perhaps even with a reformed and more equal system.
Here’s a scary statistic. All paper currency in the world right now is 97% debt. The appearance that our world economy, in my opinion, is on the brink of collapse that even the elite won’t be able to stop. Sure, they’re fine now, stroking the palms of politicians at the ratio of 5 lobbyists to 1 politician. Over the last 50 years, the system has been rigged and contorted with massive deregulation, repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act, created conflicts around the world. All this has resulted in a system where only a wealthy few, contributing very little, have ridden the backs of billions of people making sure they can never climb out of poverty.
The Presidential elects have shown concern on the realization that the middle-class is disappearing. That is the truth, the middle-class is shrinking. They are borrowing more and more money as they’re buying into the lies of the elite corporations that sell them their mortgages, cars, and “stuff” that we are all brainwashed into thinking that we need. I’m starting to think that middle-class is being systematically dismantled because they are the biggest threat to the wealthy elite running corporations, media, and government. The middle-class, still with the ability to become aware of the truth and open their eyes to the system that has been allowed to continue, are a huge threat to the socialist system at the top of the heap. I’m starting to question everything now. I’m starting to actually research this and verify what I’m being told. I’m shocked to find that verifiable facts are emerging through multiple sources that are confirming what my research is uncovering.
I am so frustrated at myself for having fallen into the propaganda without actually seeing the real motive behind all of this. The arrogance the top corporate and political leaders have had for the last several decades. It seriously pisses me off! My concern isn’t for me, but for my daughter. What is she going to inherit if this system is allowed to continue unchecked and unregulated? What is she going to have to suffer with, or rather, without, as she gets older? Will I be able to help her with college? Will she be in a position where poverty is the only choice she has no matter how hard she works? I’M ANGRY AT THE SYSTEM!
The military actions we’ve been involved with in the last 15 years since 9/11 are only proving to me that we have spread our parasitic system around the world. We decimate a country hunting for possible terrorists. We arrange for a huge loan from a world bank and then offer to rebuild their country. That money that should have gone to the citizens left in that country instead go to U.S. based contractors that build infrastructure that the poorest people can’t access. What good are highways without a car to drive on them? What good is electricity grids if you don’t have a house to have it delivered to let alone pay for it to be delivered? Instead, the poor people who don’t have a voice have to lose their farms because we’re now drilling for oil or stripping for resources. These people have to endure pollution in the rivers they’ve come to depend on since being pushed off their farms. How the hell is a humanitarian mission going to help a poor citizen if all the money from the loan is spent on the minority elite that can afford to use it? WTF?
I’m sure by now you’re asking yourself what can we do. I can’t tell you anything other than just do some research, listen and read with an open mind, and decide if who you’re voting for truly has your back of their own. This year’s Presidential election isn’t about Trump vs. Clinton, it’s certainly not about male vs. female, it damn well isn’t about rhetoric that helps get them voted in to result in 4 years of excuses how the Senate and House are polarized against their platforms. What it’s about is very simple I think, it’s about who is the best choice to go against the system. Simply put, in my mind, neither candidate, including third-party, would ever go against the system. Third party might have a chance, if they won, but the system is so much more than what one person can fix. The President certainly isn’t the fix.
What fixes the system; reboots the economy; makes serious change, is us. The non-elite people who are being broken under the weight of a socialist elitist system that has been created right under our noses. We fix it by paying down our debt and getting rid of it, can’t be a slave to the system if you don’t owe it anything. We fix it by working to educate others around us to start looking with wider eyes and actually seeing it for the corrupt bully that it has become. We fix it by rising up and demanding that it be fixed through our elected officials, as we the people, have the power to remove them from office and put someone in that will listen to us. We fix it by going back to the economists that helped create the system that worked and was backed by a gold standard. We fix it by creating an open and honest discussion that isn’t partisan, racial, mean, or accusatory.
What would happen if all credit and housing debt in this country were forgiven, with a moratorium on any new credit, and a concerted effort to make sure anyone without the means could access the money they needed to start over? The non-elites would benefit the most as they would suddenly own their home and everything that had been purchased on credit. The system would start to self-correct with each subsequent paycheck. The elite would bear the brunt of this forgiveness, including the government, as they control more debt than all the non-elite combined but don’t have any assets they could own afterwards. Wouldn’t that be something? It’s been done before; Germany 1947, following WWII. It’s not such a fantastical idea, and how can 99% of the country not be right against the remaining 1%. It starts with us and its up to us how it ends.
