| ||the old system may not be working|
In history class, we learned about the injustice of slavery and indentured servants. Yet, under the current system many are totally not 'free'.
I am one to think that all change is good. I have had really disruptive times in my life where due to what I thought was disaster turned out to open the doors to unprecedented happiness.
I've written pages and pages in my journal about sorrow about business slowdowns or the loss of a relationship. But in time, the Universe replaced what I had lost with something better. I just didn't know at the time that better things were coming.
The current fiat currency system is broken. The banking system is broken. This may be a favor to us all.
This wage slavery system, where people voluntarily sign up to be on the hook for 30 years to one particular roof over their head may not seem all that smart in the future. Maybe future generations will say, "wow, can you believe that people would sign up to live under one roof - for 30 years?" Maybe people will realize that wherever there is a canopy of trees, or fresh, open air and a stream of fresh water. That's home.
Many of my friends are so upset right now, saying phrases like, "I'm so afraid of losing everything".
Everything would be lost, say if you lost your freedom due to imprisonment. That would be a problem. Or if you lost your health. Being stuck to a desk so you can get the new iPod nano, a new flatscreen TV and a 30 year loan on a townhouse somewhere may seem like a "what were we thinking" phase in history.
