Perhaps the scariest thing to hear at your job is:
“We just got bought out. We don’t know who they are aside from being an “investment” group.
“Investment” group. This could be code for the Mob laundering their proceeds from organized crime into Wall Street. Of course they pay us so well that we would never ever question it. Especially with the “benefits”.
You ever wonder what happened to the Mafia? I can’t help but wonder if Al Capone were here today that he would probably be CEO of a pharmaceutical company.
The second scariest thing I ever heard at work was to expect a visit from 50 Chinese businessmen. These businessmen will be arriving in two buses. I’ve seen how big Chinese people are and wondering why it involves two buses. This isn’t exactly what I meant by power going back to the little man.
Lastly, I keep seeing “LLC” on a bunch of small businesses and trucking companies. Usually denotes an investment group. Lately I can’t help wonder if LLC is code for government.
One of my Daily E’isms (one liners) is that every time I think about finishing that last half of an undergraduate degree, I have this fear that it will get in the way of my real education (self-education).
It seems as if we are spending more time in school, and for every year we have to spend in school, it takes twice that to unlearn everything in the real world. That is if we can even function in the real world with all of that useless knowledge crammed into our heads most of our lives.
It has been said that the purpose of education is to teach people how to think and not what to think. The problem here is that no one can teach us how to think. We have to do that for ourselves. Any attempt to do so ends up being indoctrination, or teaching us what to think.
State schools try to promote democracy; it is absolutely amazing how good this system looks good on paper. But all it’s done is show us how nothing man creates works the way it is supposed to and everything gets corrupted.
The only thing Democracy accomplishes is making us lose faith in humanity. People that believe in this don’t understand how the world works. And once you learn this, it doesn’t make a difference if you try to start a revolution. American colonials succeeded at this because the elite let us. Within a century everything that we ran from caught up to us.
At least realizing how corrupt the world is has confirmed my convictions that there must be a Supreme being out there and something more to this life. Maybe it just exists on a higher realm that the naked eye can’t see, but has to be spiritually discerned.
Jewish Zionism and Evangelical Christianity, with the latter’s second coming belief, are only political systems trying to build a man made kingdom that is destined to fail.
In the words of Jesus, don’t look for the Kingdom here or there, it is within. Everyone looks for an escape from reality but on one wants to take the journey within.
that I have to ask before I begin this blog post: When did all of the Mafia
dons start becoming United States Presidents?
For the last
30 years, we have heard of the infamous “trickle-down economics” that was
proposed by former President Ronald Regean. What exactly is this wealth that is
supposedly trickling down? Do we
actually believe that the ruling class worked hard all of their lives and they
were giving back to their community by creating jobs?
And all this
time I thought I was slow.
For one the Elite own the banking system and live off the profits from the wealth that we create. Secondly the whole system could be laundering money from racketeering in Mafia activities by investing it in the stock market.
I did see an example of this in the hit AMC show Breaking Bad. Gus laundered his money into his chicken restaurant and Walter White later laundered his into a car wash he used to work at part-time. Now I even wonder if some of those small business I like to shop from are investing money from selling drugs or prostitutes.
But no one
is going to question this as long as they are getting paid for their “honest
work”. Hell, I don’t even question it. It’s not so much my responsibility what
they did with the money. I am only responsible for what I do with the money
that I earn from work.
It even says
in the New Testament “to the pure all
things are pure.” It is our motivation as to what we are working for and
what we do with our money that purifies anything that we do. If our motivation
is to love and serve humanity, then everything that we do is purified.
