Aphorism 35

The human outward created banks, investment banks, and Wall Street.  These entities make profits on the distribution and flow of money to those that make the greatest profits.  Essentially, they make profits on profits which take even more money away from the workers and customers.  This explains why the rich get richer and the poor get poorer.

Double Down

ImageIn the new economy post Wall-Street/Government heist and the big business focus to increase profit/stock price, individuals young to old are doubling down.  One job is no longer sustainable and many people have to secure two jobs just to keep their heads above water.

Unfortunately, the shit still hasn’t hit the fan so to speak.  Our government and the federal reserve is just pushing the debt bomb and risk of losing reserve currency status out to the near future.

When the bomb goes boom and chaos reigns for a short period, people will naively believe our leaders will fix the corruption.  But the truth is that the same misers will rise again and manipulate the masses to syphon away their energy and fake money.

This scenario has repeated itself throughout history over and over again…like the earth revolves around the sun, like our solar system revolves around the center of our galaxy, like our galaxy revolves around other galaxies.

Listen and watch the waves come repeatedly to shore.  Watch the life-giving sun sparkle in the life giving water…..and laugh or sigh at the waste of human potential.

Muses on Capitalism (Wall-street and Investment “Bangstas”)

Wall-street and Investment “Bangstas” are very confusing to me.  How do these entities make their employees and participants millions of dollars off the back of other companies?  They don’t actually create or produce anything.   They merely shuffle money around and place bets as if in a casino.

Even more confusing is how they can make money when companies or economies go in a downward spiral.  They call it shorting the market.  Seems to me like those who are “in the know” can’t lose.  Someone check the dice!  Are these financial institutions just creating a world-wide Ponzi scheme?
