I don't want to say it but... living like 3rd worlders is exactly what the millionaires want. Their problem with americans is that americans have
standards. They don't like that. It's better on their bank account when they go somewhere else where people don't care so much about ethics,
environment, work hours, and so on. Those are just stupid details that cost money. Why stay in america and lose money when you can go elsewhere,
pollute a river and overwork people and make more? Makes no sense and that's why we're contemplating lowering our standards to that of the 3rd world.
We let this happen by not confronting those at the top. It's really pathetic, but on the positive side it will lower CO2 emissions and might even be
good for the environment. 3rd worlders are known to have much smaller carbon footprints, but the 3rd world is known for polluting the environment
(dirty rivers and coal mines and whatever) and having a lot of poverty and other issues because of low standards and lack of infrastructure and so on.
But a lot of that can be blamed on first world companies going to these countries to offshore their pollution.
It's not a mistake that america lost thousands (millions?) of manufacturing jobs and in the same period of time the richest gained significant income
while the middle class and poor LOST income. By going elsewhere the owners saved signficantly, while the displaced americans left behind lost
significantly. What we see is a lack of international standards to make the playing field fair. There is not international government to ensure we all
stay within limits. It's bordering on anarchy. At least we have smart people who're exploiting the circumstances. One day they won't be able to. But
by then they'll be doing it on the moon or mars or mercury. They will just move on to some other place where they can exploit, away from prying eyes
and where few if any will complain.
Some people think that this helped our relationship with china to reduce tensions and to give us leverage in negotiations. I think that's part of it.
But I think it was just mostly greed. I asked my grandpa what was the biggest probelm in the world. He was 99. He said greed. I believe him. His
biggest standing complaint was our debt and that in each downturn/upturn the rich bought up more of hte country. And it just got worse and worse until
they owned most of it.
You don't have to be a liberal that lives inside the union world to notice this. If a man is rigging the game you should stand up in opposition unless
you have something to lose. When we stop caring and stop looking for wrongdoing, that's the day they will own us.
The back and forth between left and right is only serving their interests.
Money is like addiction. The more you get the more you need it. They say that life is addiction, all you gotta do is pick your addiction and go with
it. But money is particularly popular. It's not having a career that is bad for you, it's the desire for money itself as the cure-all of ills that's
the viral agent that harms. It's so infecting and contagious that it's quite common. Be weary where you go. You might catch it. Icarus flew too high
and burnt his wings. Does money burn, I wonder?
