Are You A Slave Of The System?

Quote:
If you went out and took a poll of the American people on July 4th (Independence Day) and asked them if they are free, what would the results look like? Of course the results would be overwhelmingly lopsided. Most Americans believe that they live in "the land of the free" and that they are not enslaved to anyone. But is that really the case? Slavery does not always have to involve whips and shackles. There are many other forms of slavery. One dictionary definition of a slave is "one that is completely subservient to a dominating influence". I really like that definition. Today, millions of Americans are slaves of the system and they don't even realize it. Debt is a form of slavery, and millions of Americans having become deeply enslaved to our debt-based financial system. When someone enslaves someone else, the goal of the master is to reap a benefit out of the slave. You don't want the slave to just sit there and collect dust. Today, most Americans have willingly shackled themselves to a system that systematically drains their wealth and transfers it to the very wealthy. Most of them don't even realize that they have been enslaved even as the system sucks them dry.

Just think about it. Where is the "big money" in the United States today?

When asked that question, most Americans think of Wall Street.

Well, who controls Wall Street?

The bankers do.

The borrower is the servant of the lender, and they generate massive amounts of wealth by lending us money.

Do you think you are a slave of the system?

Nope, not me. No debt, no college, and a promising job opening in my desired career, in the place I want to live.

Unless we live off the land 100% we're all slaves to the system, the mere fact that we need a job or a way to 'make' money in order to survive proves this. I try to be as much of a master as I can be though...

not necessarily and that sometimes can be reversed - if you do not make the loan you needn't worry about being paid back.


but borrowing can indeed be the catalyst for the slide into oblivion.

That's not true, take the national debt limit that need to be raised because politicians love to spend the money they don't have for example.

The national debt is almost 16 trillions, do you think that will be reiumbursed?

Regarding ABC, the amount of US debt by US citizen is $48,000, right?

When you say "if you do not make the loan you needn't worry about being paid back" You are wrong because US citizens didn't make these debts and we are paying more taxes to pay the interests of loans and spending made by our wonderful leaders.

Last year:

3. $48,081.66 per person in the U.S.

The U.S. debt at the moment comes to over $45,000 per man, woman and child, given the current U.S. population of 311,969,269. But that would rise to $48,081 if the debt reaches $15 trillion.

we are the ones paying it back - it is China who is hopping among other considerations that Inflation, US Dollar value (decrease) will not exceed their 3% return ...

oooops, sorry is not the favorite word to the lender.

LOL if you think that China is the only lender, I guess you are mistaken.

What about the modern money mechanic?

I believe that I found a documentary that resume how the whole society works.

This documentary is basically the best of all I posted so far in this forum.

Please give me a favor, watch it entirely, you may learn something new. We are slaves without knowing it!

i think that we (the people) are the system. And yes, i am a slave to it.
But i cannot point the finger at anyone, because i don't think that it's any—single—person's fault. It's the game that we choose to play.

Well, for the system to change all individuals need to change..it's a vicious deadlock! System waits for individuals to change and individuals wait for the system to change!

I don't think that you can change the system, but you can modify the system to be more tolerant, more human and more efficient and more prosperous. The system is really what we accept to be, people needs to learn how to actively participate to the system to make it better for all of us.

This requires that people comes together, at all levels of the society to evolve to a more intelligent world.
