The higher of us create art, music, poetry, and thought — they seek more than all that is animate and non-human and they seek more than most that are human. They are the best souls amongst us, but they are not rich, powerful, comfortable, or known.
A few may rise into the known via their unchallenged genius, but the baser of us uses them for their own banal interests –their torch or delicate flower offered to us is snuffed out or trampled upon, or used for a profit or tweaked for an agenda. We pick the wrong role models and heroes and exploit the genius and authentic spirits to perpetuate our mis-guided direction.
The traffic jam is symbolic of the human quagmire.
In commerce, labor, or profession, one honest hard working man should receive an equal amount of energy for the energy expensed –anything less is what capitalists call a profit.
Mankind invented many naive ideals and “isims” (capitalism, socialism, communism, Judaism) that all failed because a few always find a way to exploit the many under the guise of “isims”.
Hard work is humiliating when energy expensed is greater than energy received.
The human outward invented the concept called credit or debt or loan. Credit is the plug for profit. Those workers and customers from which a profit is made use credit, debt, and loans to live. Of course their interest payments make them more poor and the rich richer. Credit is just a means to prolong an economic collapse and revolution.
The human outward invented a concept called profit. What is a profit? A profit is when one makes more money relative to the cost. Therefore the one that profits either charges the customer too much money or he under-pays those that perform the work to produce the product for sale. Those that both under-pay their workers and over-charge their customers make the greatest profit. This is why there are far more poor than rich.
Regarding man and all animate creatures Earth is an oasis relative to the known universe. Outside the atmosphere exists a cold airless desert. Ask a man stranded in a desert what he prefers — water, food, a moist vagina, or a trunk full of gold coins.
Ever since man invented currency and placed value on paper, minerals, jewels and coins, he lost sight of what true wealth is to the human existence and perpetuation and advancement of that existence. Human energy focused and applied for an ever progressing momentum generation after generation is a worthy goal. Accumulating as much paper and gold rocks in a single lifetime is nothing more than the process of a child becoming a professional thief cloaked in a suit and tie.
