The structure of our planned modern world requires persons to achieve some level of financial security for themselves and their families. We must all play the money game just to survive, win, lose, or draw. Time and health, not social status and image, are among the most valuable assets in our own lives.
Family farms and emotional security in extended families are in the past. The single income family is also in the past. Huge college debts are now the norm. The very homes of working Americans are now falling to the bankers. These changes are neither the result of natural causes, nor accidental.
Huge financial rewards in this game accrue to bankers. We have all been cleverly propagandized to participate. If foul language offends you, do not watch this video in which the great George Carlin lampoons The American Dream.
The masters of our money game realize that to maintain profitability they must instill fear through televised propaganda. Myths and clever narratives (lies) for at least a full century have reinforced their demands for profitable wars.
The rules of the money game are designed by those who manage and control our currency. Propaganda, designed to encourage Americans toward social status and image, is no longer sufficient to power their treadmill. Economic hardship, programmed through taxation, currency inflation, and perpetual war, is now required.
Those whose ambition and genius created mankind’s modern world through trade and currency passed levers of social control and power to their descendants that are far greater than originally intended. Their present generation, blinded by greed and obviously impervious to incarceration for financial fraud, is succeeding in financially and culturally destroying our country’s middle class, the peacetime gyroscope of our nation.
Frugality, saving, personal and environmental conservation, responsibility, charity, and love must replace spending, wasting, and overly aggressive egotism. Above all, wars, gratuitous bombing, and those profiting from these murderous policies must be replaced. Are we reaching the point of understanding that our country’s economy must be redesigned?
The money game’s treadmill is spinning faster and faster. Our stress is soaring. There is a way to get off a treadmill. You shrug and step off.
