Ah, yes, taxes.
What the "Zeitgeist" folks and Ron Paul types always forget to mention is whom it are that enslave us. They present the Fed, the Government and the
IRS as if they came from another planet. But the problem is that these 'criminals' that have enslaved us - are we ourselves. We have the system
. There is no supergroup of international bankers that we merely need to execute to solve the problem - this system was build by us,
is maintained by us and we profit from it ourselves, and THAT's the reason we still have it
If we hadn't bought ourselves blind with money that we never earned - and in many cases never can and will earn - to get a bigger car, a bigger
house, a trip to Lisboa, expensive clothing, plenty of frappacinos and McFilth, golden rings and watches, Italian shoes, some iNonsense or eThing and
more of these empty, costly garbage that only serves to impress others or satisfy or immediate needs, we'd be better off as the banks would not have
customers. But it is BECAUSE we think we need stuff NOW, and we need it badly - we need a loan. Which the 'criminals' of the banks will gladly
provide, as we, The People, have arranged it so they can do so.
We are whining like drunkards that have no money left to buy another bottle: when they drank the previous one they did not feel the need to work to
get the next one. And now we're down and out, complaining loudly and blaming the liquor store. Well, folks, I got news for you: It's not because
(just) they kicked the bucket down the road - it's because the overwhelming majority of the Western world has done this for decades. Probably you
If you want change - change things yourself. Live modest lives, do not spent more than you can earn during your life, spent wisely, save, and invest
your savings in your family, friends and neighbours. Instead of measuring a man (or woman) by the amount of cash s/he has spent, measure him or her by
the contribution to society he or she has made.
And heck, stop complaining, start fighting the system. Go, join a volunteers group and work to enhance society for free, no bankers required. If you
are a learned person, start teaching for free in the weekends and during the evenings. Try to work less days for a boss that pays you and more for
society as a whole. If you can, grow your own food and share it with others. Do you really need that new car - and if so, have you already earned to
money to buy it? I Do you need a bigger house or do you need smarter ways to use the old one?
Stop loaning. Stop complaining. Start volunteering. Kill the system.
