. . . or, the body corporate’s strategy to keep you running in place for eternity, SUCKER!
If you’re an adult, that is old enough to inhabit a playground by yourself up to the point of dementia just before your last breath, you know something is wrong. Things are never the way they used to be, even if you weren’t alive at that time. The good old days are gone, except no one when closely queried can ever recall when they were all that great to begin with. What has changed, forgive me J-liberals for using your best publicized term for (shhhh!) Socialism, is that one gets the impression that they are becoming even more screwed! It’s the fault of the one’s whose names you dare not speak aloud! That in itself, seems to cover a lot of ground these days
Go figure in the contemporary workplace as moderated by the greatest fiction of promised twenty-first modernity, the Internet. You can’t get a job if you don’t engage the gauntlet of the web. That age old tradition of getting a peek at the type of place you consider going to work for has become a virtual sales job of a few artfully posed images juxtaposed with an iconic dumbed down Tinker Toy logo accompanied by a few trite lofty sounding phrases espousing a value system that one’s own instincts seem dis-inclined to trust. That of course is just the first step towards square one of total submission and surrender to a lower paying form of temporary employment.
Now to be fair about the topic of human nature, deceit and its merry crew of culturally inbred charlatans have been around as long as mankind, or at least as long as shards of clay from the ancient Babylonians, has precedence as the number one unspoken pet peeve at dinner time. Posting the rules of the road before the gates always makes for a righteous kill within. The closed cartel running the game always like to brag about how they are just and fair which is not too different then telling you that they are honest and don’t take what doesn’t belong to them before they empty your bank account with unexpected charges and recently increased fines and penalties. Don’t stand still or we’ll have to dock your account for loitering!
The name of the game, (AKA, “Business as usual”) is to make you agree to everything under penalty of the infraction of not being part of their culture. The old, “You’re either with us or agin us!”, routine. The way it works with the Internet model is by implicit agreement and compliance with anything official. If you haven’t noticed, you are subject to all manner of “sign here” or “watch this” under the duress of losing your possibility of employment or that other fictional grail of future advancement in this company that ten minutes before you’ve barely heard about. That is, of course, if you don’t excel at these periodic fetch and rollover exercises. Definitely, keep your opinions to yourself! Because if they are posted in Facebook for the sake of letting your I-Phone generated close inner circle that you are hip, be equally reminded that your multinational controlled firm will invariably hire techno trolls to sound for disrespectful comments placed in even the remotest parts of the web that are linked to your computer id or your own IP account. This kind of behavior is also known as Heresy with a capital F for “Fired!” In other words, the only thing private in your universe remains locked in your head (unless of course you are a true believer in that Malthusian fairy tale of the Bentham laced MK Ultra).
If you look at the old timey films of the nineteen-thirties crime Film Noir’s, they at least gave you the dignity of holding a gun on you to get what they wanted. And at times you were expected to take the bullet in the open before all the other people that you were expected to protect. Well, now of course in the privacy of some remote fully fire-walled chat room you are expected to answer all multiple choice based responses from “strongly agree” to “can’t say” with Orwellian devotion to a consensus based sense of honesty of the former echoed in the eternal spirit of “double plus good!” You are an accessory to your own demise or you are simply ‘outed’ into the limbo of an unsupportable universe of useless eaters that sooner or later will be handled by the latest variant of ‘tried and true’ policy of slow starvation coupled with genetically modified disease.
If you consider this to be a total fallacy of another crackpot web happy commentator then consider the public statement of Nestle’s chairman, Peter Brabeck-Letmathe, that water is not longer a right of humanity. It seems like we are all likely to have to buy a neck tie when we finally make it out of the desert to get a drink. One way or another, you and your children and your children’s children are their property to do with as they see fit. The is the new moral authority as voiced freely in little state-supported elitist enclaves within the Middle East as well as those pseudo-cities of ‘too big to fail’ banker run privileged paradises. Glimpses of which that are dangle nightly before the general public upon their privately controlled internationally broadcast airwaves like table scraps to a starving dog.
The Frankfurt boys and girls who jumped ship from the last despoiled motherland eighty or so years ago have taught the everyone’s kids that everything that goes against their master plan is bad for an international, “We Are The World” final solution! And have made sure over the last five decades to plant as much social dissension as possible in the time slots allotted within the airwaves of popular society by virtue of the badge of victim hood to make a house of cards look sound by comparison. This constant focus upon fear for its own sake and constantly casting institutionally powered doubts about the intent behind one’s actions leading to a knee jerk identification as being this week’s ‘lurking stranger’ producing a needful angst in order to defeat any unexpected personal impulse towards independence. “Go along to get along!” It’s a perfect model of oligarchy to rule a commercially oriented utopia where the balance books are kept out of reach by duly appointed thieves at the daily expense of the gullible morality of ‘dumb and dumber’ dumbed down sheep who all know better than bleet out their discontent lest they lose their primary source of income’s and their collective Fica score plummet to inability to once again just charge it.
So next time that you’re in a public place and you see a member of that ‘other group’ that you know in your heart is causing all the trouble in the world as related to you by this same collectively viewed nightly news consider that the other he or she is equally pissed off having to exist tightly within your own shoes probably thinking the very same thing about you as they scowl back. ‘WE’ are, after all, their tools. “It’s all part of the plan!”, as that clown faced drug induced Hollywood martyr named ‘Mac’ Heath used to say.
