Ok. Perhaps I’m a conspiracy theorist or I am very suspicious of the elite. But let’s consider a couple of things.
The Federal Reserve. This is a private bank in which the president can appoint a head guy. Bernake is current guy. The fed bank is a private institute. What does this mean? Well it means it prints money at interest. Why? Because we have no gold standard. Were are on the debt standard. Why is this problematic? Well unless I am mistaken if the US paid all of it’s debt the dollar would become worthless. This would explain why debt has proliferated for decades. Apparently the Federal Reserve Act is the work of the elite and bankers almost a century ago. But debt is value. Thus student loans are designed for debt accumulation? This is why community colleges have lackluster reputations when they are clearly the cheaper choice for the first 2 years of education which have limited educational value? We all dream of going to a big school. Driving a nice car (if your parents didn’t buy one). Getting a nice house (an apartment will suffice for many and for good reason). And other dumb shit. Having an Allegedly debt system means what exactly? Perhaps more financially and economic minds can reblog with a better explanation. Or refute my claims.
Derivatives and Credit Default Swaps.
Now everything has a purpose. But making money without producing goods is theft or extortion. Unless it’s legal; granted there are some legitimate reasons for derivatives and whatnot. But now this shit is extreme. Gambling basically. Gambling and scheming. And it’s legal. Subprime mortgages…Again reblog if you’d like with your 2¢.
New Orleans. Spain. Everywhere? Make money from bad times. Land grabs are happening now. And why? What exactly determines the value of homes? In New Orleans, this issue is more complicated. In Spain when banks tank you can get a steal. Vultures. There’s an NPR piece about it. But say a regular US home. How does a house lessen value overnight? How does the value artificially rise? Property taxes are an issue for this reason. But buying a lot of property in areas of poverty and building fucking condos. Yikes. Again. Reblog. Provide links supporting or refuting. I’m open to whichever.
Imperialism Is Underlying Variable For Successful Modern Capitalism.
Not much to say here. Africa. Middle East. Depending on your resources, your country is game. Case study is Saudi Arabia. How did they avoid a resource curse and build a financial sector? Why is Iran an issue (before the revolution). How are certain states avoiding dependency? The other obvious imperial need for modern capitalism is labor. Chinese worker suicides aside, is it moral to have these workers work for little? Is it moral to charge $60-80 for some shit costing $5 to produce?
Utter lack of Progress and Innovation.
Well this is simple. So long as it makes money, fuck progress. Why is internet still pricey? It’s 2012 and the average car still runs on gasoline. Modern Diesels are far superior. Yet emissions standards unfairly target diesels making them more difficult to sell. More people using the efficient diesels means less fuel used meaning less profits for big oil. Is this a practical conclusion? Is big oil blindly operating for profits? Are they truly endorsing alternative fuels? Reblog with option. Oh yea. Pizza is a fucking vegetable? When politicians seriously consider that, you have to wonder.
I’m not saying a New World Order and Elites are trying establish horrific norms for our society. I’m saying there is something inherently wrong. I won’t even go into how shallow higher education can be. College is kinda like Tumblr. Make a post (or write a paper) about doing some kind of protest or volunteer (topic) instead of doing it or getting hands on practical experience. So. Yea. I’m mobile so no read more option. Hope I’m not ruining your fap session. Just Google anything mentioned. Do your own research.
