As the World Drowns in Debt

As the World Drowns in Debt
As the World Drowns in Debt

The truth trickles for the human collective
like a viscous syrup, ever so slowly dripping
into the mainstream of common knowledge,
and the frustration from those
who already know the deception,
is threefold the intention of withholding truth.
out of fear and the possible losing of control.

Our world is governed by money,
its pursuit, its power and in control its further investment,
and when anything, be it medical discovery,
technological advancement or pertinent information
regarding environment and security,
we are without consideration,
kept in the dark and placated by lies.

This is not a conspiracy theory, simply truth,
and the web of control goes far beyond governments
and those who lead those governments,
in fact so deep is this web, so covert their operations,
knowledge or opposition is meet with certain death,
as collateral damage is of little concern to them,
as they are heartless and devout in their worship of wealth and power.

We, the masses have little chance to create different outcomes,
but one thing we can do is to shift our thinking,
to no longer attest to a system that is slowly destroying humanity,
learn to not fall for the consumerism that controls us:
living beyond our means, being in debt
and working at the expense of our families
for a dream that never eventuates.

Capitalism is slowly eroding freedom,
its demands are never-ending as the greed of those who control it
increase exponentially, and we are the slaves,
our developing greed the very ploy of their control,
and the slow and insidious decline of our rights and security,
classes divide: the wealthy become wealthier, the poor become poorer,
as the system creates master and slave.

All we can do is refuse to buy into this system of control,
be aware of the deceit, the lies that are proffered to maintain balance
and keep consumerism bleeding the masses
until we are too weak to oppose anything,
any circumstance of oppression,
to keep us working for them, at the cost of our own lives,
at the cost of our children’s future.

    Tony the human condition has been debated, placarded, demonstrated and fought in the streets over for centuries. One thing is certain, change will come, but it’s the masses that dictate that, not the power of governments as they are often overthrown. But the sad part is that no matter who takes the power away from the people, life goes on. Greed will always overcome freedom, for it’s as you say MONEY that controls the world. Presidents are just puppets, pawns in a massively controlled system by a select 1% of the population in this world. They and they alone dictate the outcomes, we humans are simply all collateral damage and always will be. I pray for change and peace, but to no avail, life simply goes on destroying itself daily. Peace my friend.

    So true my friend, but there is a shift in thinking. A long time coming but growing nonetheless. Our capitalist society has proven itself a failure generally and of course communism so prone to autocratic rule. There must be eventually another way to live in harmony. We may never see it, but I’m sure it will eventuate in time. Take care Vincent.
