The richest 17 odd people own more than 50% of the world. They keep us working so we are too tired to change our world. A lot of people are too dumb to think about it, and they are easily addicted to materialism and illusory status from other brain-washees. Meanwhile, we are destroying the planet. But keep a smile on your face. It's all illusory, except the living creatures and how they treat their environment. We's is only passing through.

Start expanding your awareness. There a lot of youth in our country who feel the same way and are beginning to find alternatives to this slavery. All you need is food and shelter.





There is a constant moan here on ATS about 'slavery', I'd like to point out >>>


# 1) An employee (i.e. servant) is PAID / A slave is forced to work WITHOUT pay.

# 2) An employee can quit their employment / A slave cannot



QUOTE from you >>> "All you need is food and shelter"

Last time I looked they both had a price to them !

I have no problem at all with your attitude as long as you pay for yourself. Nobody owes you a free ride. What really pisses ME off is people who are "on disability" (and then they snicker) or are able-bodied but get on some sort of "assistance" program paid by me. But if you can perfect the 4 hour work week instead of the 40, my blessings to you.


thats what happens when your tricked into paying taxes on monopoly money. Maybe if you didn't slave away 40 hrs a week you wouldn't be so angry. Maybe grow your own food, quit your job, and move away from the society you hate paying for.
I think everyone should be given a free ride since we are native american, and they have stolen our lands and placed in them their "systems". We allow them to be there so i deserve compensation for my free decision. Instead you think we belong to them from birth and are required to complete some sort of service to them to earn our "freedom". I say i was free from birth and only owe my service to god who placed me here for HIS purpose. Now why should i have to serve a "bosses" purpose in order to eat? No i dont, the government stole the land i need to feed myself and gave me a social security number in return as a promise i will be fed. If you don't like it then grow a pair and quit bowing down to the all powerful dollar.

I think we should start communities where each person is responsible for a specific task related to the survival of the whole. I would have no problem working if the outcome is betterment of humanity.





Sorry to hear you were laid off ... and glad you feel stress free.


The above sentence is where it all falls apart!! ... Ever shared a flat/house with

others? or know those who have?

Because there are always those who don't and won't pull their weight in the sharing

of tasks, (hovering, cleaning, leaving the bathroom as they would like to find it!

all their share of necessary chores) Eating others food etc. therefor upsetting the

equilibrium in the group.


It happens in all walks of life ... the shirkers being carried by the workers!

I, also, have know quite a few people like that. Only downside to that lifestyle choice is not having a family to share it with...kind of hard to raise little ones that way.

Unfortunately, not everyone loves their job.

The biggest problem, as I see it, is that love or hate your job... it's something you HAVE to do, you don't get a choice.

Where is the alternate lifestyle choice?

I personally have never been driven by money or material things, it really doesn't interest me. Trees... nature, bright sunny days, bird song, now that to me is real treasure! But where is my choice?

I am forced to live in a society that makes "living" almost impossible, I exist, I don't live, I'm not alive. I have to work over 70 hours a week to earn less than minimum wage, to pay for a lifestyle that I don't want but if I decide not to.. well, I'd probably be arrested for vagrancy because according to those in power, living off the grid, fending for yourself and living truely "free" is a criminal offence.

When you figure all of this out, let me know because a life without much work is a life well lived in my opinion. Unlike you, I think my problem is laziness. There's so many other things I could be doing... Fishing, four-wheeling, boating, gaming, talking, scanning the skies for UFOs, traveling, or building things. I mean the possibilities are endless. When I'm working I'm almost always dreaming of things I could be doing besides working. That makes it even worse.

We have to accept work. I was fired today because people lied about me. I am devastated. Not because I like work, but because I know it is a necessity and I lost my dreams and means of physical survival by people who lie and just want to see me fail and lose everything.

You are absolutely right... It is the system that rules theworld. Most people accept it as completely normal and do not question. It is very hard to imagine an other system where everybody has a roof above their heads, do what their hearts tells them to and where is there is always food on the table.

I do sometimes wonder if (besides the Star-Trek federation) there is a world without the need to work for money if you want something.

As much as I enjoy my job building houses with the company I built its still depressing when I think about how much time I spend away from my family. Because its busy where I am I have to take jobs one after the other because I need to keep a good reputation and keep myself in the loop of getting the good jobs. I really wish a better system comes along for my kids and they are not slaves to the system like I feel sometimes.

Yes a slave in the true sense does not get paid but our current society pretty much forces one to work if they wish to accomplish anything meaningful. I definitely don't want a free ride or to leech off other but I truly believe our world is based on exploitation and an unequal distribution of wealth. When I ask who the biggest freeloaders are that cause this imbalance the answer is always the top 1%. They need to go!

I’m with ya brother. About two years ago now I had a life changing experience in my life, I won’t bore you with all the details. I got tired of busting my but for my little piece of the pie and never getting to see my wife and kids. It was taking a big toll on my family. I made a decision to get out of the business I was in and spend more time with my family. I truly believe I saved my marriage and vastly changed the future for my children. It has not been without a few bumps and bruises but I can honestly say that I am the poorest I have ever been but I am the happiest I have ever been. A lot less stress and now I never miss my kid’s events. Life is good. The journey has been crazy but worthwhile. Good luck to you on your journey.

I feel exactly the same way pal, and im surprised how doesnt more people feel this way too.
I mean, i guess once you have responsabilities, like a family to take care of, you just cant afford to think these things cause it would drive you mad. But still most people dont even think of it, ever, they just spend most of their time working without ever asking why they are wasting so many hours day after day, doing things they dont like, or wouldnt choose to do.

I recently quit my job, cause i wanted to study history, I know im not going to have a big salary or anything, but ill work doing something i enjoy, plus i get a whole month of vacations during the summer. Im currently working 8 hours a day plus attending classes, but im sure itll pay off in the future. Im studying, and thats what i want to do, so yeah i have to work for now, but soon enough ill be able to look for a job teaching.

The thing is we must make a choice, if we want to live for ourselves, the way we personally want to, or if we'll live the way the system says we should. When you work just for the check at the end of the month, you are not living for yourself really. If you instead, priorize the things you enjoy, and then look for a way to make a living out of it, then you are living for yourself. Maybe you wont be rich, like the guy above me said, but thats a choice you gotta make, whats more important to you, money or time.
Its really that simple, you gotta think of it seriously. Money or time.

I'm at a point in my life now, in my mid-forties, where I finally have what I feel is meaningful work. This does not mean my job is easy or stress-free, in fact, it's the hardest and most stressful job I've ever had, and I work very hard at it, and sometimes I just come home and cry. However, I feel like I'm doing something that is serving the world in a way that matters--and the benefits and pay are decent, which is nice. The only thing that frustrates me is that I don't have as much time as I want to pursue my creative writing; although I do manage to carve out some space for it. But also, a lot of my experiences I have at my job enhance my creative life and make me a better, deeper writer.

Like everyone, I have fantasies of quitting and pursuing my "real" interests full time, but I also like the discipline and structure involved in going to a job everyday. I enjoy the challenges of my work (well, some of them, anyway), and I feel good when I achieve things and learn and grow through my work. Sometimes out the blue, I get thank you cards from people I helped months and months ago. I didn't think that what I did for them was such a big deal, but they remember it, and it was very meaningful for them. That's really satisfying!

Maybe it isn't this way for everyone, but in general, I think work is important for our psychological, emotional and spiritual health. And before you jump down my throat, please know that over the course of my life, I have worked every crappy, low-rung job known to man--truck stop waitress, retail drone, deep-fryer at a gas station chicken deli, assembly-line worker at a fake crab factory, fast-food cashier, telemarketer, you name it. It's not like I landed in the job I have now without going through a lot crap to get there. But every one of those crummy jobs taught me something useful, and I'm grateful for those experiences. If I ever had the opportunity to escape "the system" and get out from under the economic restraints of needing money, I have a feeling I'd still work in some capacity. I'd just drift back to having a job, or doing a lot of volunteering, because I don't think I'd be happy not feeling like I was contributing something.

And also--I had my own business for years and believe me, it's much, much harder than having a job. That's not a good route to go if you don't want to work.

Oldies, sorry you've missed the boat. But if you know any young people, get them using their heads.

I graduated high school in the top 2% in the state. I could do maths. I projected the costs of a 3 year college degree including lost wages etc during that period and decided it would take me 10 years of working to pay myself back. And that was back when university was free in Oz!

So, with that off the table, I went to work at 17 in a fairly good clerical position and sunk every single cent I could muster into buying real estate. It helped that I prioritized finding a supportive partner whose ideas were the same as my own and we went off on this path together.

Buy a very basic home, pay it off quickly and then buy some more and the spare cash in between? Invest in shares. That means invest, NOT trade. Eventually, if you keep your lifestyle frugal, you will free up income to support you - not your busting a gut to support loans. No credit cards, no fashion statements etc etc.

You know how it goes but you all thought it was old fashioned to be like this. I was at home for my children, while doing bits and pieces in school hours and not worrying about the perceived status of the job. They were taught that money does not just flow on the breeze and while they were supported to consider educational options, there was a limit to what I was prepared to pay for. For instance, one child was offered the choice of university OR a car. She wanted uni. Then she was told I would support her to do 3 years only but it had to be in a viable course with a good chance of employment at the end - not art history or something airy fairy. OK, she did science. And so forth.

So just look back and think about your early days and how much fun they were and understand that the cost has to be paid at one end or another. I have now left work with my work being administrating our business affairs and hubby stays working for the moment but that is being re-evaluated with income coming in from varied sources.

It is possible but you do have to start early and start without debts.

Start off by saving 10k, move to a medical marijuana state. Build grow room, read a couple growing books educate yourself on growing. Next step is to quit your job. Yay!! Mission accomplished! Now you can spend minimal time day or night doing a simple hobby of growing plants, it's actually fun and you can do it easily. Now for the sticking it to the man part. All the money you accumulate is non taxable. That's right no more taxes! Next step is to sign up for Medicaid and food stamps. Jackpot ! Technically on paper you have zero income, so eligibility shouldn't be a problem. Yup kiss my ass affordable care act. Free food, free healthcare, no taxes. Free as a bird retired at 25. No more slavery. If you wanna squeeze em for every penny collect unemployment on your way out. BOOM!

I have often thought people look at making money the wrong way.

We should find what we can do to make say 100 dollars a day in as short a time possible - learn that skill then make what you need when you need it. An 8 hour a day job at $8.38 an hour will get you 67.04 and that's before taxes (Minimum wage is 7.25)

So a website that lists easily learned skills by the desired amount you want to make for your comfort level.

The net is Bursting with free info on how to learn skills. This will free up your time and make you more money - more that you get to keep.
