Ah, yea right. And how does the average common citizen BUY the TENS OF THOUSANDS of dollars worth of building supplies to begin?
While the knee-jerk reactions in this thread are assuming I'm defending the current system I assure you I am not. If the world was populated by only
one hundred people you would see what I was talking about.
This is a thought exercise only.
The indoctrination is evident, even with people who believe the 1% is primary cause of all of this. They want a system that still exploits other
people around the world, and a rich middle class so they can have all that they believe is fulfilling in life.
The bottom line is even the poorest in the North America are richer than many in other nations. And you are no different to them as the 1% is to
The top wealth in North America need to realize they are not that wealthy either. Essentially, you can have the nicest location to live in a sewer,
but you still live in a sewer.
Back to the thought exercise:
The Log Home Builders Association is a non-profit educational association that teaches the craft of log home building to average men and women who
have an interest in building their own log home. We do not work with commercial or "kit" builders, only owner-builders and others who are interested
in building a "real" log home for themselves
Remember this is a thought exercise. It is not practical for everyone to build their own home these days. A number of things prevent people from even
being able to do so.
The point of it is to think about what one man can do with his own hands and resources that are openly available (sort of) and to relate that to our
Our current system is inefficient. Millions of people sit in offices contributing nothing to our daily lives. They are the problem. Thousands of
people will work for an insurance company spending millions of man hours every year just to figure out how not to pay 65 year old Ms. Nancy White a
settlement because she had a "pre-existing" condition.
This is the problem. This is why the 1% appear as the problem. Because we have allowed a system that belittles normal people to feed the top. There is
no reason why both can't live with some relatively positive relationship.
To go further, we also have issues like over population. We have worldwide inequality, not just the middle class vs. the top in North America. If
North America prospers, other countries see declines and vice versa. And while everyone wants to blame the rich in their own country, other countries
have been able to blame you for centuries.
The world owes a lot of money.
So what should we do, cut the heads off all the wealthy in all the world? People still need leaders. People still need someone to organize and create
things that bring prosperity. (Businesses and the like...) and it will still be the people who are the 1% now.
I would hope that in this time in human history people will be able to bring about sweeping change without having to install guillotines on every
corner for the wealthy to lose their heads.
But who knows....
(like Mrs Romney and other disconnected from reality folks).
When the ship goes down everyone wants to blame the captain. The problem here isn't the captain, it's the ship. Think of the French Revolution...
There will always be people richer than others. And there should be as some people will do more in life than others. That's not the bad thing. The
problem is the ship has been full of holes, taking on water for decades and no one really cared about it. People were two busy playing into red vs.
Just as you have to mention Mrs. Romney when discussing the subject, it's engrained into you.
You want good vs. bad, evil enemies to topple, but the system is the enemy and has been corrupted for eons now. When the ship is repaired it will be
the same people driving it so it really isn't about the people. It's about putting a navigation system on the ship that doesn't let our idiot captains
run them into icebergs.
