If you start a business, you'll certainly learn the importance of good work ethnics.

But that's why you'll probably never start a business.

earth is a slave farm. Its not just the current system - its always been a slave farm.
Physical life is all about competition for survival - amongst a scarcity. The mental dissonance comes about because we were conned into believing life is something other than slavery and hardship. That is the carrot on the stick invented to keep the slaves on the job - i.e. the american dream.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 33421829


I think this is the whole point.

Don't want to speak for OP

but OP wants to escape the slave farm and find a better life.

If everyone revolted off the slave farm, it would not longer support the

rich overlord tards and their life styles...

they would be forced to work themselves....oh deeeer eee


They want to make sure enough are brainwashed ; as many of the comments on here do

indicate

to believing this is an ok system to live in ; just 'deal' with it

If all slaves revolted we would have a new and better world!!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 32538141


'if all the slaves revolted' - may as well say, 'if all the dogs learned calculus' - The slave system itself is an outward expression of the inner nature of the slaves themselves. They are ruled because they don't want to have the responsibility of self rule. They are lied to because they have no love of truth. They are treated unjustly because they don't object when someone else is treated unjustly. Remember how 'Tase me Bro' became a big joke instead of an outrage? Remember how 911 truth was mocked by a public who bray like donkeys when they don't like what they hear? remember when millions voted for "Hope and Change" despite obvious indications it was scam? They are their own enemy. The elite are just a tiny voltage. The masses are an enormous current.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 33421829


You are right on the money.

Ok ; I agree with you.

They will not change the system until they change themselves and this will never happen for

many many

They like their slavery a lot of them

and don't give a damn when injustice is so obvious

But, there are some who

ARE ready for a change!!!!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 32538141


i think the real danger is that change is coming - someone is very busy getting it into the heads of the masses that they are being had. Even the likes of Fox news puts guys out there like Napolitano who are gradually getting the word out that the system is rotten.
The problem is that people will be motivated to change - but because its for the wrong reason, they will be just as easily herded into the solution already planned for them long in advance.
I say its the wrong reason, because its not motivated by love of truth, but anger over being screwed. And that motive does not carry the integrity to see it through to a good solution - but rather a reactionary result, such as was produced by communist revolution.
I expect there to be a feigned collapse of the powers that be followed by a world-wide 'brotherhood' that will be worse than anything we have seen.

Re: I'm 34 and jobless. I am deeply resentful towards the so called 'work ethic'. Here's why...
I will tell you. I dropped out of medical school in my first year. I had no problems academically. I had trouble with the costs and what I perceived as the future of healthcare.

I had a conversation with a family doc at the white coat ceremony. (This big pompous cloistering bullshit ceremony to make you feel 'special') And he said, "so what did you do before you got in."

I said, "I was a paramedic, carpenter, and stone and brick mason. And I raise cattle with my family."

He chuckled and replied, "Why would you give that up?"

Absolutely, 100% true, I swear. Nothing else was said, but I got the sense about mid semester that since I was destine for GP or something of that nature I was going to 250K in debt to net 95K.

That combined with other factors led me to hang it up, I have NO REGRETS!

O.P.,

Well said.

All those who try to spin you in another direction within, "the system," are just in denial themselves.

The Phuqing THING is what it is.

It is very bad for people of your age at this time.

Very.

The slavery is more repressive, with less reward than ever before.

I'm old and have watched the incremental slide.
I have been active in, "The Wake Up Club," since the 70s.
I have a little more work to do. Just how much I cannot say with a certainty. But I suspect it is not too terribly much more.

I have looked forward to Exit Day, My Death, for decades.
The last 30, I have yearned for it.

When it is my time, I get to go.
Leave this shithole.
With all the apologist, in denial, slaves.
Without their consent this would never be.
Never.
They will be held accountable after death.

My vote is for those at the top

they have the most to lose

because, like all the kingdoms of old

they will lose their place and forfeit for the rule of another

This world is not any different than the time of the dark ages

the only difference is we have some technology today

they didn't have back then

all the rest is the same

So you are incapable of doing what your prospective employers have succeeded in doing, and you bitch at them treating you like you are beneath them?

Newsflash for you... you ARE beneath them. By empirical evidence you are not as skilled, driven, determined, or capable as they are.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 10401141


it takes time to get to the point that you can start a business. it only means the business owner started before he did.

it doesn't mean he is less skilled, driven or determined than his boss. how many bosses have you had that were stupid, incompetent, lazy, and got where they were by kissing ass? how many jobs have you interviewed for where you didn't get hired because you would make the boss or the other workers look bad because you were too good of a worker? or too smart?

how many business owners got where they were by cheating and lying, but that makes the OP inferior because he is "less capable"? you should ask yourself "less capable" of what, and ask yourself if "success" is actually a measure of hard work and integrity or if it means a successful robbery, and just how much greed and cruelty that would entail.

The interesting thing is

Who will suffer the most from the failure?

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 32538141


1rof1

when it fails, the owners cut and run (it's called an "exit strategy" and they all have one), the company goes out of business, the employees lose their jobs, the company's assets are liquidated, and the owners start a new business.

in fact with some types of companies, they know it will only last so long, they know it was doomed to inevitable failure after a brief period of prosperity. and some companies are actually planned to go out of business at a certain point to maximize profit when they sell or liquidate it.

the joke is on the employees. they don't suspect a thing. the owners never lose, it's planned that way.

you didn't know that, did you? most people don't. like 99% of the people, you are only a work-bot and it's none of your business.

Here's why I feel so deeply resentful towards the system, that I am as deeply reluctant to serve it:

First off, it is so stressful and monotonous competing with hundreds / thousands of other wannabe slaves, that you are forced to constantly upgrade skills and sell yourself more (beg harder). It is degrading to beg to be someone else' slave.


 Quoting: Fuck it 5872656


sounds like you resent the fact that you didn't acquire any skills in earlier years.

If you had any, you would know that they should always be in motion towards an "upgrade"...and that you would want to hone those skills to better yourself in the competitiveness of "work" .....feeling like you're being forced is quite telling.

those of us that have learned a skilled trade and are "masters" of that trade have no problem telling some douche-bag "No, i'm sorry, but that's not how it work's".

go bury your head in the sand at the park if you want, but i suggest you learn a thing or two about what it takes to make something of yourself...(read my first sentence again).

Only 2 make that little, they are the office staff. The other 10 are highly skilled, and earn more than 5 times the minimum wage.

Too bad, but your argument doesn't stand at all.

I owned another company where the average pay was about 1.5x minimum wage. I closed that one, (didn't feel the least bit bad about it either since pretty much everyone there was an Obama voter. The two that were hard working and honest are the two that are my office staffers now.

Re: I'm 34 and jobless. I am deeply resentful towards the so called 'work ethic'. Here's why...
Totally agree with this thread. I'm saving my money and plan on buying a cheap little cabin somewhere, raising chickens & goats, gardening, and giving the middle finger to all things modern.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 22362616



It's a hell of a dream - it's my dream too - but good luck finding that little, peaceful cabin far away from all things bad. It doesn't exist, at least in America. Every last square foot is infested with human garbage. I've tried to get away from it all, but it's impossible if you want things like water, power, trash service. If you can do without those, where are you going to find this land?? The government owns almost everything that's still pristine and natural and beautiful...
Out in the country in America is where meth addicts go to cook; where retirees go to die; where hillbillies go to sit on top of a mountain of their own filth. And there's just as much noise pollution as in the city.
Good luck to you in finding that cabin. Good luck to all of you.... 'fraid we might have to take out the trash first before any of us can really have any peace, though....

Re: I'm 34 and jobless. I am deeply resentful towards the so called 'work ethic'. Here's why...
wrote a poem bout it...wanna here it? here it goes:

Where is the anger? Where is the rage?

With the spirit of this age?

Is this is the way it should be?

Weren't you born free?



We work for stuff! Nothing but fluff!

things that dont last, in plastic cast, produced en masse

you buy it with your worthless dollar.

"you are a slave, Neo"

white or blue collar.





We make it so easy for them

to dim our light and make us fight

for the table scraps that are left

before our inevitable death.



Who deeded THEM the planet?

Why isnt it MINE, dammit!?

Who gave it to them to sell it back to us?

With interest, plus, plus?



Xanax, Prozac, Zoloft and Valium

various alcohols by the gallon

Why are you so messed up and hurting inside?

What are you trying to hide?



Is it your frustration and rage

at your gilded cage?

That you dont even know you're in?

Your life is an affront to God...a mortal sin.



You were made in the image of your Creator!

(that means that sooner or later)

you must begin to act like HIM

Stop being a SIM!

Stop worshiping The Man!

You're not here to fill bank accounts and buy fancy cars!

You're here to be who you are!

A one and only a limited edition.

To create should be your mission.

I love this poem!

The problem is that the left has created a a system where everyone gets a prize, everyone is to be valued equally, everyone gets the same pay and benefits. This socialist utopia means that all parts are interchangeable and expendable.

That is all BULLSHIT. Hate to burst your bubble sunshine. People are not equal. People have equal opportunity but not equal capability or value.

You are worth the value you provide to others. Work harder than the next guy and you are worth more. Demand appropriate compensation or go somewhere where your value is appreciated.

If all of you little commies would not support the unions and the socialist ideal of equal outcome, this kind of crap would not be happening.

If you don't like your lot in life, how about trying to make more of yourself rather than tearing those that produce down.

Unions gave working people a voice and rights when they were much needed, I agree they've gone too far, but there are elements of organized labor that are totally nessasary.

I live a great life, my business is still small enough that it's manageable, and large enough for it to provide a comfortable lifestyle.

And no, I don't hire whiny losers like the OP.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 10401141


And you pay sub-living wages to your employees.

Hint: a living wage is enough for a single person to float a boat by themselves in modest digs in a decent enough part of town.
Without having to live with others so survive.
Money enough for digs, food, car, health needs... and some left over for pleasure and if desired, savings.

Nope. You're one of the phuques that is going to find a real surprise on the other side of this life.... and sitting like a bump on a log of a church pew won't be of any value to you whatsoever.... in fact... it will be a detriment.

You've been brainwashed.... and then ran with the ball, continuing to brainwash yourself.

Your Day Is...... coming.
