The structure of our planned modern world requires persons to accumulate some level of tangible assets for themselves and, usually, for others close to them. We must all play in the money game just to survive, win, lose, or draw.
Our most valuable personal assets are time, health, self confidence, and personal integrity, not reputation (image) and social status. Although time itself is uncontrollable, we can chose, within limitations, how we use it. Although health does have both hereditary and environmental determinants we are personally responsible for a huge portion of our own.
Family farms and emotional security in extended families are in the past. The single income family is also in the past. Huge college debts are now the norm. The very homes of working Americans are now falling to bankers. These changes are neither the result of natural causes, nor accidental. Makers and guardians of our modern world work diligently to discover how, using computers and media propaganda, to micro-manage society. Financial manipulation and political manipulation are identical twins.
Huge financial rewards in this game accrue to corporations and bankers. We have all been cleverly propagandized to participate. If foul language offends you, do not watch this video in which the great George Carlin lampoons The American Dream.
For a scholarly and less vulgar way of saying it, watch the below video:
The masters of the money game realize that to maintain profitability and control they must instill fear through televised propaganda. Myths and clever narratives (lies) for at least a full century have reinforced their demands for profitable wars.
The rules of the money game are designed by those who manage and control our currency.
Financial laws were enacted to protect us all from fraud, validating their game and enticing players. Propaganda, designed to encourage Americans toward social status and image, is no longer sufficient to power their treadmill. Economic hardship, programmed through taxation, currency inflation, and perpetual war, is now required.
Those whose ambition and genius created mankind's modern world through trade and currency passed levers of social control and power to their descendants that are overwhelming. Descendants of the game's brilliant originators, a present generation blinded by greed and obviously impervious to incarceration for financial fraud, is now financially and culturally destroying our nation's middle class. What one has the ability and means to create one may modify or even destroy.
Frugality, saving, environmental conservation, responsibility, charity, and love must replace spending, wasting, and overly aggressive egotism. Above all, wars, gratuitous bombing, and the men who design and profit from these murderous policies must be replaced.
Are we reaching a point of understanding that our country's economy must be redesigned? Is there a more socially constuctive method of facilitating human action than to remain subservient to a privately owned central bank whose owners make wars to preserve debt-based currencies and who control the usurious financial system that ultimately places nearly everyone else in debt to them?
The money game's treadmill is spinning faster and faster. Our stress is soaring.
There is a way to get off a treadmill.
You persevere to discover alternatives. Then you shrug and you step off.
