The attitude that is conditioned into our psyche from a young age is that we have to learn a skill and use that to get a job in order to earn money, which in term feeds the growth of the economy.
One question I think almost every day but I find many other people don’t give it a second thought is why do we have to work?
“Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work and driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for – in order to get to the job you need to pay for the clothes and the car, and the house you leave vacant all day so you can afford to live in it.” ― Ellen Goodman
Why do we have to work?
At face value and viewing life through the brainwashed society we are all born into, the answer may sound rather obvious, we need to earn money to purchase material objects in order to survive. For most that makes sense and needs no further questioning. However, one must ask in a world which fundamentally has enough natural resources to feed clothe and house every single person why there is such a work ethos.
We are led to believe that we are running out of resources and the world is overpopulated when, in fact, the reality is completely the reverse. If we were to gather every man, woman and child and moved them to Australia, the whole world population would fit comfortably within the country. Each family having their own house and garden and that would still only fill 3/4 of the land mass.
What is Scarcity? How is it used?
Scarcity is a tool used to create the feeling of not having enough. This creates a survival response and an automatic panic in humans which causes us to be selfish and greedy. We are very much led to believe we are living in scarcity times by the mainstream media. There is always something were running low on. Land, oil, energy, money, food, water, to name a few.
We witness African and Ethiopian communities starving and dying of disease and we are led to believe this is because there just is not enough food to give them. Not once do people in the west ever stop and think just how much food is wasted on a daily basis.
In 2004, a USA study showed that in America alone forty to fifty percent of all food ready for harvest never gets eaten. There is clearly no shortage of food. The richest nations are choosing to let the third world people die while they continue to exploit their resources.
What is wrong with our society?
We live in a debt-based monetary system where money is created by banks in the act of just placing digits on a screen. Our governments then loan money from privately owned central banks that have secret (protected by legislation) shareholders that the public are not even allowed to know about. With absolutely no oversight. The richest 1% own nearly half of world’s wealth and are also in positions of power. The 99% of the world’s people are left to scrap over the remainder in order to survive. I also personally believe technology is been suppressed in the energy sector that could end the fossil fuel industry overnight.
We spend most of our lives just taking as fact what we are being told by our institutions – education, government, parents and media – without giving it a second thought. In fact, humans have become so docile that we spend most of our days unconscious, engrossed in the latest gadget or celebrity gossip. This is all by design to keep us distracted from anything real going on in the world. We clearly live in a corrupt unjust society that rewards dishonesty and selfishness. There is enough to go around and waste and pollution seems to be the byproduct of an unsustainable growth and greed based ideology.
