Your absolutely right about one thing...people are all better off when they are doing something with their time..because it takes your mind off
things...even scrubbing toilets or digging ditches...is a form of escapism, because whilst performing mundane activities, your mind is almost
blank...and for a while free from stress. Basic physical activity, in other words is good for your mental health...as well as your physical health.
But does that justify being a wage slave? Does is F.
People on benefits do have a reputation for lying in bed all day...and many, many do..but not due to being lazy...as a lot of idiots like to
think...they lay in bed all day..due to a complete lack of motivation...which turns to depression.
If you know the best your going to achieve is being a toilet cleaner, or burger flipper...then its not exactly motivating, is it? Especially when we
are continually bombarded by images of people who have "made it" in life...getting our noses rubbed in it...when TPTB really have the idea that
selecting a few commoners to become pop stars or whatever....will give the masses hope...and it does...but it gives many more people frustration and
anger...to know its really a rigged game.
In other words the bigger problem is what the Government have coined..."Social inclusion"..the idea that opportunities should be available for
all...something similar to the "American Dream"...
The only problem with these political concepts..is that they are bare faced lies, designed to give the "people" hope. because hope is all you need in
order to quell rebellion and revolution.. remember the french rebelled when the Queen said "let them eat cake"..she wasn't cunning enough to BS her
people, and give them false hope, like modern politicians...her ruthless and callous honesty, sealed her fate..if only she had of been wise enough to
lie, it would have saved her head haha, because that's all people need to hear, in order to keep them contained, a load of hot air..
In Britain there is today, an age old class system...that means if you went to the right school...your going to get the high paying job...even if your
as thick as porridge.
Case in point...the military, in Britain has two classes of soldier, still in this day and age of "social inclusion".
One class is the typical "common man", who will always be used as cannon fodder...and the other is the officer class...the officer class, who never
get in harms way, and always come form elitist upper class backgrounds.
A good example of this inequality within the military is again the royal family...who always gain positions within the military...in order to appear
to be brave men.. always as officers.
The latest one is Prince Harry...a helicopter pilot...yet according to his poor exam results (a D student at best), if he was a commoner he wouldn't
even get into the RAF.
Then compare all that to Americas politicians who also come from elitist backgrounds...I don't know about Obama...because apparently know one really
knows what is background is anyhow haha...but even if he is, ordinary people, he is the exception...even for America, which is supposed to be more
open for opportunity. Like i said its largely a lot of BS. To escape the poverty trap, where every one and everything is counter to you even getting a
semi decent education...well you have to be either exceptionally lucky....or exceptionally ruthless....or both.
