Bang on! My sentiments exactly!
When I was studying my business diploma at university I came to the conclusion that governments are intermediaries between the consumers and
businesses. In conclusion, businesses run the country and tell governments what to do, while governments try to create some peace between businesses
and the consumers when the consumers demand change in the economy.
This is where OWS and other protests alike come into play.
I agree that we all need to wake up. For the past two years I have not subscribed to cable tv. I do not believe what is going on in the world based on
what media FEEDS us. Moreover, I do not believe in paying my cable company for watching advertisements for most of the viewing time. When someone asks
me "Did you hear about...going on currently in the world news?" I reply with "no, I don't watch tv and the news is bullsh**" Then I ask them,
"Did you ever visit ATS.com where you will find the real story?" And they are like "No, what's that?"
Case in point, if you wish to find out what is going on in your life, you have to search for it and not depend on media and propaganda to feed it to
you. WAKE UP!
Studying marketing, business, and economics, and majoring in accounting now that I have my business degree, I see it all to well in plain sight. If
business is run ethically, it can be of great help to the many consumers and for the country's economy. I believe in buying and using products
produced DOMESTICALLY. For me it is of higher quality, and I don't support slave labour and cheap quality.
On the medical side, I thought I used to be depressed and was prescribed medications to "treat" my symptoms. After getting sick of taking those
pills, I stopped them cold turkey. Since then I feel great! And I also come to realize that those people who were diagnosed as dyslexic or crazy, were
actually really smart and free from societal influences and opinions.
You think you are crazy? No, that is just you being normal to yourself, and not what media and society dictates what you are to be.
The best quote I ever heard and still spin in my head is from the movie "The Secret" by John Demartini...
"When the voice and the vision are more clear, loud, and profound than all of the opinions on the outside [of your mind], you have mastered your
WAKE UP PEOPLE!
Great post...really stirred emotion from me.
