Early in our developmental years and through the lies of the ‘work ethic’ doctrine, we are brainwashed into believing in the happiness of wage slavery. We are shaped by our parents, also wage slaves and throughout the processes of formal education from kindergarten through college. We expect to work and to realize success…Now into the darkness!
From a column by: William Deresiewicz author (A Jane Austen Education)…“A recent study found that 10% of those working on Wall Street are ‘clinical psychopaths.’ These folk are incapable of interest or empathy toward other folks. They have and practice an unparalleled capacity for lying, fabrication and manipulation.”
Then does this follow? The rich (1%) of the world’s favored few lie, cheat and break the law on a continuous basis?
Wall Street is pure and raw Capitalism. It is an Evil place and the destructive union of psychopaths and control. The remaining (99%) of our world suffer…Pure Capitalism is a lie that we readily accept from birth-to-death. We are instructed to work for next-to-nothing and we commit our precious selves to wage slavery and claims that we are ‘blessed.’
Good capitalists are frauds and cheats. They promise the masses luxury and throw bits of this to a few through accounting fraud, tax evasion, toxic dumping, product safety violations, bid rigging, over-billing and perjury. A few companies caught: Enron, BP, Goldman, JP Morgan, Philip Morris, GE, Merck, Walmart and News Corp. We will succeed by screwing our workers, hurting our customers and destroying the land.
If corporations are people: These people are psychopaths: indifferent to others, incapable of guilt and completely devoted to their own interests.
Are there any ethical corporations and ethical business people? Maybe a few, however, in capitalism ethics are optional. Capitalist values are the opposite of Social survival. Churches, while a small step toward Socialism, are still proponents of an unregulated free market—me, me, me is substituted by the words Your Church. All Churches sell blue sky and are very successful businesses managed by psychopathic leaders and continued by a congregation of blind followers controlled since birth.
Capitalist values are the opposite of democratic values. The principles of a republican government asks us to consider the interests of others, however Capitalism is the single-minded pursuit of profit and every man for himself.
Very Important: Workers are the Creators of Wealth…Workers use labor to create wealth for entrepreneurs—the excess productivity, over and above wages and those ‘compensations’ continues as corporate profit…
Note: Most rich people are not entrepreneurs. They are executives of established corporations, institutional managers of other types, very wealthy doctors and lawyers, successful entertainers and athletes, people inheriting wealth and people working on Wall Street…Hitler’s notion to imprisoned all speculators may have been a correct notion?
From Kurt Vonnegut in (‘Slaughterhouse-Five’)…
‘The poor mock themselves and glorify their betters. Our most destructive lie is that is very easy for Americans to make money. Continued lie…The poor are lazy, stupid and evil. The rich are brilliant, courageous and good. They shower their beneficence upon the rest of us.’
(Remember…The rich are psychopaths…Our schools, our businesses and our governments are managed by these psychopaths)! We must stop lying to ourselves and our children. In our present chapter of Life on Earth greed has beaten us. The new mantra is austerity. This is another word for doing more for less.
Capitalism is our destruction. Socialism is our only savior.
And! Beautiful you are…
