I think the American dream is a lie; it’s a very good lie that is in place for no other reason to appease the masses of proletarians but benefit the
bourgeois. You get brain washed into believing at a young age that you can be born into a desperately poor family, you can work your way to the top by
conforming to the capitalist rhetoric that is pressed upon you every day. The only way you can get rich is hard work, or so they have taught you, but
as the proletarians among you are always working for the selfish bourgeois you can never be “rich” as they control you. Think about it it’s the
rich that control your politics, media, education, health care and indirectly your life, you the poor are their slaves.
The proletariat work for the rich man the idea is that you make enough money, use this money to pay for a nice house, nice cloths, nice car and a nice
family. You work for the rich guy and then he pays you generously, but you give him back the money that you have earned to buy up his goods, his
property. This gives you the illusion that you are moving up the capitalist ladder, living the American dream, but in reality all you’re doing is
funding the rich man’s American dream. His idea of the dream is to maintain his control over the property and wealth of the state and thus control
over the poor proletariat who are deluded thanks to this control.
You can never work to be at the top because to do so, you would have to topple the guy at the top of the capitalist ladder and, unfortunately for you,
he controls you. A master would never let his dog take him for a walk and likewise the rich bourgeois man will never have his worker, his slave, reach
his level on the capitalist ladder because to do so would be self defeating. It would be like your boss volunteering to take a demotion so you, his
subordinate can be promoted into his better job, just never happens.
Despite this most obvious of contradictions in the American dream the illusion goes on. You are taught if you can get into a good education you can
prosper, however to do so you have to pay the bills charged by the “good” schools for a “good” education. But how can a child form a poor
family utilise education to prosper, if the family cannot afford to send him to a “good” school? This system means that it is only the rich man
who can send his children to the good schools and so the unfairness continues.
The same can be said for health care, we all know that if you are one of the very few lucky bourgeois and you are diagnosed with cancer, you can
afford to pay for the best treatment in the land. Whereas the poor have to suffer quietly with a lesser quality of treatment, because the rich have
monopolised the system. It does make one think; is it fair that the rich can live were the poor do not merely because of the size of their wallet?
Surely it is a true damnation of the “free world” where the choice over life and death is determined by ability to pay rather than one’s needs.
Then we have their tool, the machinery that drives the illusion of the American dream money, and I for one hate them for it. Money is the cornerstone
of our modern life and indeed most of human history. It is what we use to maintain order without money there would be anarchy, quite literally.
Despite this I hate it, it’s a necessary evil that we have to endure to survive. Entire nations go to war in the name of it, it splits up families,
people kill for it and it funds the most hideous of gluttony and corruption. We are in a constant battle with in our self’s to have more bits of
this evil little paper no matter what the cost to our moral fibre. As a person often you are judged not by your sense of common decency and moral
standing but the size of your bank account. More money means more respect, power, property, goods, pleasure, and at times, even invisibility from
morals and even law and order.
The bourgeois it seems at times control the proletariat, it give them the real power the rest of us are a slave to their evil little bits of paper and
thus to the bourgeois. We work until our figures are raw in the quest to amass an ever bigger pile of the evil little bits paper working for the rich
man. This however is an illusion all we are doing is making his pile of the evil paper grow and with it his corruption and materialistic prowess. The
more we work the more money his corporation makes but the poor man’s salary remains the same.
In its evil it is all controlling, we cannot live effectively without it and it is in this realisation that we must submit to this power and the power
of those who wield the masses of the evil little bits of paper, the rich bourgeois. The alternative is to redistribute the wealth however even in
doing so the fundamentals that make money a great evil still exist. It is with thus that we reach the conclusion that the only way to stop its evil
corruption is to eliminate it form society but to do so would bring about a evil worse than that presented by the presence of this evil money. It is a
vicious circle with no way out that has brainwashed and deceived us all, it is the tool with which the bourgeois men control us all and so once again
the illusion of the American dream continues.
With these realisations we see that you have all been brain washed, there is no such thing as the American dream, American freedom and for most of you
American capitalism the bourgeois control you. You, the poor proletariat are all being conned by a system that has benefited the totalitarian rich for
all too long. You are their slaves, their dogs and you all role over and take it because you have internalised capitalist rhetoric that they teach you
at school, regurgitate over you through their corrupt media and ultimately lie to you about through their puppet politicians. “Freedom is slavery”
wake up! The only way out of it is if you, the proletariat, to put in the words of Karl Marx, “unite” against this totalitarian capitalism. Marx
once said that “The proletarians have nothing to lose but their chains. They have a world to win”.
Oh and happy 4th of July
