Yes the standard of living has fallen for the average American.
I work two days a week at a homeless shelter and just a few years ago, it was mostly junkies, mentally challenged, ex vets and the "rejects" of
"society".....................well got news for you folks, one medical "issue" your insurance refuses to pay, one job out sourced, job loss, etc and
you too may be a guest of mine one night. We now see more and more people who owned a home, have a college education, owned a car, have kids, did
everything they were suppose to do and yet one "issue" threw them into the homeless category.
"Oh but that will never happen to me"....................dream on, it's coming to you and yours, you just don't see it yet. I know I didn't.
Nobody cares until the brown stuff hits their fan.
The few grow richer and everyone says, "so what, they deserve it, I don't care".
You will care when the massive injustice of the wide range of salaries and even job availability finally happens to you, your son, daughter,
People like to think they are empathetic but really until they actually get screwed by "the corporate run system" they turn a blind eye to everyone
else and inject excuses like, "they're lazy, they don't deserve, etc"
What affects one affects all of us, but most just don't see it coming yet.
The few become richer and the rest remain compliant and accept quietly their servitude.
So be it.
Many have tried to warn the public, like David Icke, only to meet with ridicule and scorn.
Sometimes that red pill is a hard pill to take, waking up and finding out we are in a matrix of sorts is beyond scary, but it is the way it is and
will not change without the common people putting aside their differences, uniting and openly rebelling serving the few.
This affects not only America, but it is now global.
People have allowed themselves to be dumbed down, distracted and divided.
The three D's.
And, we always have to have enemies.
I watched this same scenario on a small scale working offices for over 20+ years, they call it "office politics" and don't kid yourself.
People that have power, even the big fish in little ponds, micro manage, they are aware of and manipulate, pitting their "underlings" against each
other in the name of competition.
Like kings at a table throwing scraps of meat to the starving dogs and watching in amusement the dogs fighting each other for those few scrapes, where
as if the dogs all united and tore the kings neck out they could share the meat and have paradise.
The way we do business doesn't have to be the way it is...................but it is the way it is because everyone is afraid (fear) that the bullies
will come for them if they don't go along.
They don't realize they are next, it's only a matter of time.
It will take a massive group, the majority of people rebelling to change this injustice. Before enough of us unite, we are powerless.
Yes power lies in numbers and guts to carry through with rebelling against the way we currently allow the few to control the many.
