I suppose its my claim that much of the [free/western] world today in fact operates in a mode too similar to slavery to be ignored. In some ways its
not a new/recent phenomenon, but in many ways it is. This post could safely belong in half the forums here.
The test: assuming you are a typical worker/employee, the next fine sunny day you wake up feeling particularly good, you decide to call in well
(opposite of calling in sick - I feel too good to work today!). In fact, you decide to start a street party by dancing naked in the street.
Outcomes: a) your neighbours, who you know well, join you for a day of random celebration and its all back to work the next day, feeling great. Your
boss, who is your friend, knows you have a strong work ethic, does not flinch or dock your pay.
b) your neighbours dob you in, the cops arrest you, the boss fires you, your partner leaves you, the bank takes your house and you are as good as
Honestly, decide which of those are closer to the truth. I claim that through fear, debt and other tactics, the world (the governments, bankc,
corporations) has made you a slave. The worst kind of slave - the slave who doesnt know it.
In the old days, the slave keepers had to house & feed the slaves - today the slaves are resposnible themselves.
The world is a fantastic, wonderful place, full of life, colour, creatures, sounds, music etc.
And people are wonderful, spiritual creative souls. Ooops used to be. But fear (terrorism) debt, religion (fear/hatred) now dominates our lives so
much we have lost touch with out human spirit (of freedom!) that we have become slaves.
Seriously, is it normal to live a cycle of waking up tired, commuting to work, doing something meaningless for a few hours, commuting home, watching
crappy TV and falling into bed. Eating low grade cheap food, breathing polluted air and drinking crappy water.
Even if you dont fit this, think of the hordes of people who do, who cant actually partake in internet forums because they cant afford to or an not
educated enough to.
Something has gone wrong with human evolution.
Your thoughts please...
