I agree with a lot of what you say, we are the enablers of the elite. Almost everyone in 'modern' civilization is somewhat at fault for this, other
than the select few who do their own thing, live off grid and whatever.
We are somewhat enablers, But we are still being taken advantage of no matter what we do in this society. We can live off grid, but does it really
help anyone? the system still goes, and you cannot convince everyone to just suddenly do this. There are urban centers that growing food is next to
impossible unless you have the money to invest in a hydroponic farm.
We enable the elite, but we are still being taken advantage of, and we allow the extortion of millions of people so the elite can garner more profits
and give us these cheap things that mean nothing. The materialism aspect of it is what i agree with most, i hate materialism to the degree society has
brought it, its 'nice' to have these things, but really, do you need to have them and have to need them? No. But anyways. We need to tear down the
'elite' and stop the extortion of millions of people, the only thing they are concerned about is their profits, and they gain more profits by
extorting people in cheaper countries. They justify it by saying 'well, some money is better than no money', and really, it is, but its slave labour,
and we agree with it by shopping at walmart and department stores for the cheaper prices. Cheaper prices only hurt the economy, i dont mind paying a
few extra dollars for something if its made in my country, or is not made somewhere where its slaves making it, hard to do these days considering
EVERYTHING is made in a country like that.
An ipad is 1000 dollars or more, they pay their employees what.. maybe 2 or 3 dollars? a day? maybe? i dont know the figures, but it cant be very
much. Know how much it costs to actually make the ipad? maybe 100 bucks, MAYBE. Seriously, its just extortion for profits.
Its the same with war, statistics show that after you level a country and rebuild it, the economy there gets better, WHO KNEW...
And on and on, we do not do anything here, in the western nations, because most people perceive that we 'have it good here' because for some reason
most people blame these other countries themselves for being poor and unable to feed themselves, when in reality it was essentially a trick by the
elite to garner resources and take advantage of people who cannot fight back.
The elites tricked them into getting loans they can never pay, That is not OUR fault..
That is also on their shoulders, the media, the military, the government, the corporations, the banks. EXPERTS at tricking populations into doing as
they please, we fall for it of course, Its easy to lie and get people to believe it apparently when you can hide anything you wish.
While we are enablers, we are not the ones committing the crimes, we are not the ones actively thinking about this and how to do it. How to achieve
global dominance is easy when you control how the wealth flows. I probably go a little offtopic here, maybe not though, and maybe didnt reply to
everything you said, but you know, sometimes you just gotta start typing
If we could 'just say no' then a lot of us would, but are trapped, scared. Gotta pay the bills, keep a roof over your head, gotta eat, gotta be warm.
Have to pay for all of those things. Even though there are millions of empty houses in the united states, and millions of people without homes..
