Middle Ages

December 12, 2009

We still live in the Middle Ages. We still live in a feudal state. We still live like slaves. Differences are that we have been taught to think that we don’t. And we are being kept under this impression wherever we look at in search of the meaning of our life. Politics and religion thrive to keep united, that’s a difference because in olden times they hadn’t to thrive to they just kept united.

Aren’t we subjected to slavery? Yes we are, because anything we do is just to earn money to transfer it to the system. The more we earn the more we spend. Democracy sees to it that we do. It doesn’t matter if we insult openly  our leaders, they are cheeky enough to go through it without any problems. The cheekier our politicians the safer they are to be politicians.

Tell me what’s the difference between now and six centuries ago. Those times we were obliged to go to wars to defend the interests of our lords, with the complacency of religion, which then – as now – had something to get out of it. Today there are still people among us who believe in patriotism, much that our “lords” get most of their income by being unpatriotic by moving their enterprises abroad. Globalisation it is called.

The Environment is there to keep us busy. The Media always at work. Did you know that the interment of CO2 was being made in a very few countries to prevent damages to the ozone layer? I, for one, didn’t know, but I now know. And I know now because those who can shake us about at their whim want so. Because it is much better for them  to keep the present energy system as it is and try to divert our attention to a new method of disposing of the CO2 which they say is much better because they save lots of money and time. And they keep charging us the astronomical sums reflected in their invoices and bills, when we know that using alternative energy the cost would be lower. And don’t be deluded, burying the CO2 will mean that our invoices and bills will be increased to cover the costs of those burials.

And what do we do about it? Nothing just keep being slaves, vassals and payers of anything they think we must pay.

At least let me vent my frustration. Thank you.

    Glorious rant Jose. Allow me to join in.

    We are slaves to the system – slaves to the system and ruled by fear. We are driven to spending our lives conforming, obeying the law, playing our part in the capitalist system and making the overlords richer. We pay disproportionate and excessive taxes while the wealthy elite enjoy their loop-holes and their non-dom statuses. We are powerless against the banks and their greed because our employers insist that we have our salaries paid into bank accounts. We are powerless against the police because they close rank when we take issue with them. We are brainwashed into thinking that our civil liberties must be curtailed in order to protect us. We are driven to believing that we must earn more and more money in order to pursue material wealth and mindless recreation.

    Free society? I don’t think so. Poorly yes, but not free.

      Thank you, Earthpal, for your priceless contribution. Unfortunately not everybody realises what few like you do. How the human mind can be so warped as to conceive means of destroying what seems beneficial for the society shows that our intelligence is only used to control, dominate and enslave us, including those who conceive the system, who in most of the cases belong to our mid…
