The people in charge are the smartest, brightest people in the world. They are the people who were chosen, or who we chose, to represent our species. So why then are there still poor and hungry people in our world? Why hasn't the world entered a state of peace and permanent alliance? Why have we been forsaken?

We have the technology and the understanding needed to feed the hungry and house the homeless. Because, lets face it, that's the only thing actually separates us from one another; The food we eat and the house we are raised in. Pretty much the whole world is connected now, be it online or on foot, and the leaders of the world have many ways in which to communicate. You put the worlds smartest people in a room together, surely only magic could happen.

Yet here we are, trapped with a debt we don't owe; In a system we didn't create. As far as most of us are aware, we did not ask to be born into this world. Everybody is here by chance. Even if your parents wanted a baby, the odds of the genetic combination jackpot landing on you was still the purist form of chance. Nobody truly deserves their way of life, you just happened to be born. I'm aware that spiritually we are here for a purpose, and probably chose to live the lives we live; but while here, we are unaware of that purpose and are indeed still trapped. We need to realize we don't have to just take it, because clearly we all won the jackpot. WE ARE ALIVE!... yet we never seem to get to live.

Once all the people in charge realize this, i'm sure life will become heaven on earth.

Till then, stay strong!

Synchronicity is the key. God forbid we were ever allowed to figure that out. Of course we eventually make it out of the cave.

I'm not so certain this is totally factual. I would say the true people in charge are simply naturally talented at deception, manipulation, and putting themselves above all other things. Many of them aren't even chosen by citizens, but born into the positions or slither their way in.

We certainly have the capabilities to provide all human rights to every individual, but it's the very people in charge that are the reason this does not happen. Self gains are far more important to them than gains at a species wide level.

And who do we owe this debt too? The people in charge who profit off of people in debt.

Based on this opening statement I was expecting a satire.
Why isn't the rest satirical?

Unless you mean to say that you really believe that?

EDIT TO ADD:

Exactly. I can't believe anyone could really think otherwise.
Not to mention all the hang-ups that make people vote as stupidly and cowardly as they usually do.

You don't have to be so smart or bright to be a dishonest salesperson. That's all our leaders are nowadays, it's a shame, but it's where we are currently.

Currently it appears only cunning is required, henceforth cunning people, spinning a lie about our entrapment, ensuring we obey our servitude.

They always say something to appeal to a certain part of society, but t's lies, damn lies, nothing changes, ever. The rich get richer, the middle get squeezed, the poor get poorer and so the cycle continues.

Its always the alpha preditors who run
Things. This has nothing to do with
Intelligence or worthiness.

Among humans, it's the person with
The strongest and most charismatic
Mental defect that starts religions,
Develops ways to skim money off
The hard work of others, etc.

A well-adjusted person is nearly
Incapable of amassing 'power';

For that you need narcicism
In conjunction with other
Mental defects.

Well-adjusted people just "go
With the flow"; this "evil" will
Always triumph, until such
Time as this dynamic changes ---
Which it won't ---- at least not
For hundreds of thousands
Or millions of years....and
99.999% or so of all species
Which have ever existed
Are now extinct.

They are simply playing around with a world they consider theirs as a gigantic chessgame with endless possibilities. They dont care in the least about people, their opinions or their existences. They only care about people in the sense of what they can achieve by using them as a whole.

You have to understand, they know what ignorance and illusion is, you dont since you are in-the-box. Religions dont affect them since they know its all bull# or too altered to be understood. You can speculate but never be certain. They on the other hand have that huge advantage of not being brainwashed and reduced to an assisted spoonfed sheep with a tetraplegic mind. That puts them in a whole other league than the flock, one has to recognize.

Let me unveil a piece of the horrible truth: they manufactured this society and now they are destroying it on purpose but with style hence why all the drama and the horrible long slow destruction coming. Akin to a kid destroying his hard made sand castle just by pure pleasure and freedom of having that right, since he created it along with anything he puts inside...

One has to wonder, considering all that is going on..

Those in power know this, the thing is those in power want more of the jackpot than others so they steal it from us, make our lives miserable so that theirs can be better. They know the truth, they just choose to hide it from us.

Free will? When you have much power, you have out of chart mad ambitions. And what force drives anyone to do anything? Fun.

This is an ongoing experiment that started long ago. Human rights, moral, justice, education, politics, culture, religions,.. all made up to lead humanity into a corner separated from reality. You see whats happening as horrifying like a mouse in a lab but they see the grand picture, like they are playing with humanity as one would play with a stick and an anthill...

The people in charge are the people who has always been in charge

their life is perfect in every sense! they have apathy against their cattle (that's us)

so they have realized it looong time ago and they hope we don't catch up.

The experiment is to see how far they can keep going before everything goes out of control and/or something intervene. They will bend the will, moral, fear, sensitivty and mind of people in such extreme ways that one day it will implode, the energetic build-up caused by all this unnatural madness, destruction, nihilism, ignorance, injustices repeated all over the years will create an event which will annihilate the source of this nightmarish spiral, humanity.

Like an infection (collective of germs/parasites) that kills its host, its condemned to disappear with the end result of its work. Zoom out to the earth's perspective and what civilization looks like? As below so above.

As long as there are people who treasure power and greed over the quality of lives of their brother man, nothing will change. It is sad because we have the potential to do so much good in the world.

Not really. We're led by the least among us (elite, don't live lives like the majority of the people), the least visionary among us, the least virtuous and least noble. We elect them because they have the means to appear on our TVs and tell us to vote for them, and have the financial backing of massive multi-national corporations and media machines.
