It's Time to Change: Economy
And We Have a Plan
- Because the owners of this country don't want that.
I'm talking about the real owners, now.
Big wealthy business interest that control all things and make all the important decisions.
Forget the politicians. Politicians are put there to give you the idea
that you have freedom of choice.
You don't!
You have no choice, you have owners, they own you.
They own everything. They own all the important land.
They wanna control the corporations,
they've long since bought and paid for the Senate,
the Congress, the State Houses, the City Halls,
they've got the judges in their back pockets
and they own all the big media companies so they control
just about all of the news and information you got to hear.
They got you by the balls.
They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying to get what they want.
They'll get it all from you sooner or latter,
'cause they own this fucking place.
It's a big club...
and you ain't in it!
You and I are not in the big club.
And nobody seems to notice, nobody seems to care.
Good honest hard working people, white collar, blue collar...
doesn't matter what color shirt you have on,
continue to elect this rich cook-suckers who don't give a fuck about them,
they don't give a fuck about you, they don't give a fuck about you,
they don't care, at all, at all, at all...
- If oil companies know,
that they can make more money by having their items scarce,
the propensity to deliberately limit production and disregard social concern
or simply be dishonest out right about available resources
is very high.
The same goes, unfortunately, for every other socially dire problem,
such as environment pollution.
The more polluted our water tables and tabs become,
the more industry can compensate by offering profitable solutions.
This creates a preverse reenforcement of indifference
to environmental concern by industry,
for the more damage there is, the more money that can be made.
It is simply how the game is set up,
and the psychological ramifications are sick and profound.
- Money doesn't have any value at all.
There's no gold or anything to back it up.
It's just a picture on a cheap piece of paper,
with an agreement amongst people as to what it can buy.
And I would say a forged agreement,
'cause we really don't regulate the prices of things.
People think in terms of wanting a job,
to get the money, to buy the things that they need.
But if they really thought about it, it's not the job,
or the money that people need, but access to the necessities of life.
Many cultures tell their people that they are free,
but really you only as free as your purchasing power.
If this is still confusing to you, consider this.
If a group of people were strainded on an island
and they had gold, diamonds, money,
but the island had no arable land, no clean water and no fish,
their wealth would be irrelevant to their survival.
Money is not what people need,
but rather its the necessities of life.
- Consume, consume, consume until we have no planet left to consume.
What you need to do is buy things that you don't need.
That's the best way to support the economy.
