So there you have it...little in the way of surprise, little in the way of shock, much in the way of disappointment. If ever evidence was required
that spoke volumes on the position of the ordinary citizen within the matrix of the society in which he/she participates, this was it.
You are mere vassals and chattel, spare tools to be used for the vacillitation of your master's profit and luxury; you are mere bus boys, porters,
maids and servants, and you pay for the priviledge to be so. Everything that the founders fought for against a tyrannical British ruling class,
America has become...I welcome all our American co-peasants to the European theatre of class rule.
Today, at work, we were given a presentation on how the company was performing, and during the presentation a little story was told that was supposed
to highlight the difference between the Chinese and British employee. A British manager overseeing production at our Chinese plant in Shenzhen, asked
a Chinese employee to fetch a tape gun at the other end of the assembly line. With a quick bow, off ran the little fellow to the other end of the
line, and retrieved the item, then ran back to the manager with it, presenting it to him with another bow and outstretched arms as if upholding a
Such fawning courtesy would never be forthcoming from a British employee (or even American)? Yet, that is where they have us. We may be surly,
insurbordinant, complaining, proud and prideful in and of ourselves, but we each are still in the same position as that little Chinese worker. We give
thanks to the wealthy Levianthans that provide our meagre means of sustenance, our little comforts, and the small passive hours of the weekend when we
can truly express our enjoyment at the positions we are given.
Let us put aside a moment to take stock and reflect upon our good fortunes. Let us all stand with our families before the portraits of our leaders and
rulers, and as they nobly look down upon us as a master upon his favourite dog, let us smile benignly at our attainments, our opportunities, our
worth...and then reflect and become aware...it is we that have allowed ourselves to become thus.
S'cuse me now, it is time for my Chinese language and fawning lesson.
