Do you ever look at a building with crazy architecture and wonder,
“Who the hell had the money and idea to build that, and where did THEY get the money to do it?”
Buildings certainly are not getting cheaper, and restorations can easily go into the millions. Who is paying for all of it and why is it looking more generic all the time?
We need to refamiliarize ourselves with the creation of the Federal Reserve, which is neither Federal- nor technically any sort of reserve.
It is simply our central banking system that makes printed money paper out of thin air, backed by nothing but the hard day’s work of the normal people who keep the system rolling and the drops in a bucket that the money launderers pay when they are forced.
I don’t want socialism, but what we have isn’t much better.
People want transparency- and the lack of it in our system will be the biggest downfall. The corrupt dealings behind the scenes are coming to light on the mainstage and if you find that shocking, wait until the local expose’ relevant your area comes to your eyes.
Every city was built up the same way to a certain degree, starting on the supposed level playing field of Right vs. Left.
A battle back and forth played with money and acquisition along with the influence of religion, which the government covertly hid behind “separation of Church and State.”
The same people giving big to the churches were the same people holding up righteous illusion in public forum while playing dirty deeds in the back chambers. Every single city was built on some sort of corruption and program facilitated by religion and the govern tied to wealthy individuals with secret purpose in collusion.
One cannot be a “normal person” and think about this for too long because it seems unbelievable, and shit, there are bills to pay and mouths to feed, and there is no extra time for an existential breakdown due to too much truth.
I don’t care where you live- what are the common last names? What do they do and what do they own? What church is their family known to attend? How many of them have held public office or have networks with people of a similar ilk?
If your family has been in the same place for a long time- have you worked for these people? Went to school with the children and grandchildren- did you see evidence of entitlement from them when you were growing up? Did they seem emotionally disturbed under a false illusion of superiority? Did you find out later that their families were just a show on the outside- and they had back door dealings of their own?
Yeah- these are the families that sustain our city infrastructure, politics, religious and educational institutions that employ everyday people working hard to make a living. These are the families that make and break/brake legislation in our government for reasons we have yet to realize.
It’s sad but true that these innocuous everyday places have been a breeding ground for people who really don’t always have the communities best interest at heart, despite having elected civilians in public offices who supposedly speak for the people at large.
Most of those civilian elected positions are filled by people in alignment with other agendas and serve as a buffer zone between the community at large and the actual governing bodies that delegate the consumption of funds from whatever coffer they hold trust in. They are the “pillars of the community”. They serve to hold the roof over the foundation- whatever that may mean.
So what kind of place would you actually like to live in- if you had authority and infinite resources?
Would you want a cluster of people and a large booming place, or say a nice quiet country town. maybe something in the middle?
It’s easier to live in a bustling city to some degree than it is to move unknowingly to a small place. In the small place, the politics are more blatant and they recognize a newcomer right away- in a city, you can blend in or stick out- it’s up to you and the political agenda of things may be more hidden as there are other things that one can find interesting or entertaining.
In both situations, if one neglects to build a rapport with the location and the people, one will find oneself somewhere else once effort and frustration set in. Eventually, it seems reasonable that it would just be better to start over somewhere else. That is the thing about people- nothing ever seems good enough- the grass is always greener somewhere else. No one wants to tend their own garden without payout in some regard, whether the payout is sustenance, beauty or comfort in the activity.
A person can build their own little heaven anywhere- but it isn’t easy, and one can’t define their personal heaven by any other blueprint or prefabricated overlay. The tenacity it takes to energetically build a space for oneself can be daunting.
We want to find ourselves in places that we truly love on many levels; the people, the location, the scenery and the ability to actively engage or not.
Much of this draw on a large scale is dictated by politics, religion and the purposeful circulation of large amounts of money.
However, individuals tend to stay in a location when they build a community or get absorbed into one adding a sense of security and support. Community makes life worth living.
A lack of participation in politics is a byproduct of the fact it takes time and money to be involved- and when you don’t have either of those things, basic priorities come first, almost to the point that one is basically forced to step out of paying attention to it altogether. It’s a stress that can be managed by ignoring and silently rolling with the punches.
Those are the same people who need a voice in representation- they can tell you how hard it can be, they might even have some really innovative solutions- but they can’t find a baby sitter for three hours in the evening after having the babysitter there all day, in order to attend a city council meeting where they may or may not have the opportunity to speak.
I grew up in a town that didn’t seem to have much to offer when I was growing up in the ways of city type entertainment- I also didn’t have a strong personal community of friends who planned on staying in town after graduation. We had dreams of leaving this podunk town and finding a home as far away as we could find comfort with. There was no reason for me to stay when I finished school- and like many creative kids, I had my eyes set on NYC and school for performing arts.
My “dreams” didn’t happen for lack of pursuit or ability- my “dreams” didn’t happen because I was able to see snippets of a dark underbelly and I made a conscious choice to change my own mind about following a popular pursuit filled with popular but sick people. I left a popular program.
I don’t want to be entangled with people who live off of a corrupt illusion- I don’t want to be handled. I’d prefer to think for myself.
I’ve seen how people in authority with money and power take advantage of ignorant dreamers working to make something true and genuine. All the while the dreamer was merely an investment in some other agenda they never received a memo about.
The money is fake, the entertainment is fake, the politicians are fake, the religion keeps the division. Depriving the individual spirit; providing only backtalk that spouts lack worth in the unique spirit that is the unique you. We have continued to feed the facade. Running off to those supposed greener pastures when home and the ability to be good enough was inside of you the whole time, YOU just never thought a whole city could operate on that level and settled for the closest approximation.
How many people want to go home, but feel like they can’t because they have nothing to show after pursuing a hopeless dream?
They were profound in youth and everyone “knew they would be someone someday”. They did anything they could while they were away chasing some big dream, probably even some things they would rather not admit which led to being smacked in the face with how we are programmed to think we can do anything we set our mind to- only to find out the next gateway exists to those who are willing to sell themselves out to the people with the bankrolls that invest in individuals with dreams that will assist in selling a large and selfish agenda.
Enough is truly enough. We will no longer settle for being treated/ bought and sold like livestock to populate your weird human ranches.
