Work Ethics and Current Society
I initially was looking for the rant section on the ATS board, but was unable to find it? So im putting this in general conspiracies as I strongly
believe it to be one.
In our society work is, for many, a reality of having to live, having to feed themselves and their families in order to carry on, keep a roof over
your head and clothing on your back..I know others have said this over the years, but it does truly seem to have been engineered to be exactly that
way, otherwise the PTB don't get their taxes, or the control over the people registered into the work force to begin with. This is going back some
ways into our past, but its not so distant as to be invisible, work used to be work on ones own land and home, keeping livestock, gardens, fruit
trees, etc..to feed themselves, sell at a small village market place or use the barter system with surrounding neighbors.
But now, that isnt at all the case..now people are expected to work at often mind numbing jobs in factories or offices, far too many people wake
each day and begrudgingly go to a job they hate doing, but are stuck in this system. Some make it out, working for ones self does help in ways, as
does taking the leap to change life for what a person really wishes to do with their life..but in most instances this is far easier said than done and
not everyone can do so for innumerable reasons. Its become more and more apparent to me over these past couple of years that far too many employers,
especially any kind of franchise but also private business owners, expect their workers to make that job their life. Despite any life or family
situations. America was terrible for this when living there, but the UK is better in only certain areas of this. I know people that have to travel far
distances from their families for a job they most likely wish they werent doing in the first place..work over takes people, some can not fathom life
without a job, usually stating something like 'I wouldnt know what to do with myself'! Some people are away from their children, spouses and loved
ones for weeks at a time due to their work obligations, couples divorce and break up the family unit because of their partner, knowingly or
unknowingly, chosing work over them. The amount of people over the past years who have taken their own life over financial issues is saddening beyond
words, for anyone to commit suicide all over something (money) that doesnt matter outside of our programmed societies..and doesnt really exist even.
I see zombies when I go to places like London or NYC..so very many of them rushing to and fro, carrying breif cases and mobiles, stressed out and
discontent even if they dont address it, its written on their faces and impressioned in their eyes.
There are those who choose to have a career instead of a job, usually resulting in longer hours and harder work, which then takes over the persons
life. There are those without family or loved ones who work simply because they have to, some that never take a sick day, never would dare standing up
to bully boss types in fear of making waves, or losing their job all together if they do not just do what their told and shut up. I am not saying all
employers are this way nor that all people submit their lives in this way, but a recent event really made me think. My partner was meant to be going
on a course for work for three nights, and as we spoke about it, he made the statement 'theres nothing I can do about it' which is what got my mind
going..his employers (a well known business and not privately run so much) expected him to go away for that length of time in his own time, to do a
course that isnt needed and take away that much personal time from him from his family or the threat of being fired is always there. The PTB want
unthinking slaves. work, eat, tv, sleep, repeat.
it doesnt leave much room for much else.
