Everyone the world over is concerned about the future. Everyone the world over is looking for something or someone to provide an answer to what seems like the never ending saga that is called the “Global Financial Crisis” (GFC), or Global Financial Con to me…. Everyone the world over is failing to find anything to hang onto that might signal a positive outlook is indeed possible. Everyone the world over is getting very very tired of this situation. Everyone that is except the Politicians and the Big Business Executives of course. They are loving it. Thoroughly. Their share prices and profits have grown massively during the GFCon. And the people of every country are LETTING them get away with it. Letting the Greed Machine that created the GFC in the first place roll on and on and on!!!
We all look around and wonder why the cost of living is going up higher and higher by the day, why smaller and medium businesses are going broke by the day, why our wages don’t go very far at all and then the Pollies and their cronies just spend spend spend like there is no tomorrow! The simple reason is that none of these people in Parliament have ever had a real job, had to support themselves and their families on anything less than mega salaries with mega benefits, nor ever had to worry about how they will fund their retirement years. Wouldn’t it be nice to get a lifetime pension worth millions if you leave politics at 35? Without the taxation ordinary people have, and with hundreds of thousands of $$ worth of “entitlements” each year for life at taxpayer cost? And of course the freedom to go get another job paying gazillions whilst STILL COLLECTING this pension?
To say that Politicians are out of touch with reality and the real worlds issues of the people in the street is not sufficient any longer. It is not sufficient to hear them keep making the same feeble and pathetic promises we all know they have no intention of keeping. It is not sufficient to sit back and allow these parasites to keep taking huge chunks of everyday people’s pay packets for their own greedy benefits. It is not sufficient to hope that some masked crusader will ride on in and save us all from the Greed driven pollies and big businesses because that is not going to happen is it?
The pollies encourage and assist the largest organisations to create monopolies and duopolies to crush smaller to medium business. They do not regulate these industries as the revenue they can generate for the government is simply staggering and an opportunity not to be passed up. Banking, Grocery and Fuel companies are starting to combine and meld so that very soon we will see nothing but mega organisations who control everything. Grocery and Fuel has already been swallowed by just 2 organisations in Australia, with Banking the only standalone left. For now…
There are many out there who would love to get into Politics with the dreams and intentions of doing the right thing for the country they love. Sadly this is not possible in modern times and is just a pipe dream never to become a reality. Sadly the truth is that an individual cannot make a difference. Even a group cannot affect positive changes anymore. No the party line is all that matters, and this is a line that protects the fat cats in both politics and big business from losing their financial good things. If anyone dares to swim against the flow of the party line they are effectively shut down and eliminated from the party. They lose pre selection status for their seats, and are ridiculed and “assassinated” by the parties PR machines and spin doctors very very quickly. That is unless they change their tune and fall into line with the party’s line…
It would be nice to think by writing something like this that it would spread far and wide, and maybe even get a few people to think about the world and where it is at. Maybe even inspire someone somewhere to do something positive. Sadly I am all too aware this is fantasy and will not get out to many at all. Until the people of the world stand up and decide to be counted, stand up and say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH of all this corporate and government greed, it will just continue and probably get worse. We will keep electing incompetent and selfish parasites to government and keep watching as everything gets consumed by a couple of mega corporations to the point that they own it all one day.
Just think about it, even just a little bit. Nothing will change until we all do…..
