"Are you a Slave of the System"?
Slavery does not always have to involve whips and shackles. There are many other forms of slavery. One dictionary definition of a slave is "one that is completely subservient to a dominating influence". I really like that definition. Today, millions of Americans are slaves of the system and they don't even realize it. Debt is a form of slavery, and millions of Americans having become deeply enslaved to our debt-based financial system. When someone enslaves someone else, the goal of the master is to reap a benefit out of the slave. You don't want the slave to just sit there and collect dust. Today, most Americans have willingly shackled themselves to a system that systematically drains their wealth and transfers it to the very wealthy. Most of them don't even realize that they have been enslaved even as the system sucks them dry.Ever feel like you feel like they are squeezing us harder, burying us under an endless line of rules, regulations, and more? Well you are not imagining things, they are. And the interest rates, penalties, and other PUNISHMENT principles are getting higher and more onerous. I imagine if America was a high school, we just got the meanest principal in the land putting each of us in detention for the littlest infraction. Combine this with the police state, and the endless debts--debts one even is forced to take just to meet the basic demands of society, can anyone really say this is a FREE COUNTRY anymore? I always wondered why swift punishment could come for things that were not your fault such as a job lay-off. Mercy and compassion is little out there. One way to stop being a slave is to actually "see" the prison bars surrounding you. --The Squawker.
Just think about it. Where is the "big money" in the United States today?
When asked that question, most Americans think of Wall Street.
Well, who controls Wall Street?
The bankers do.
The borrower is the servant of the lender, and they generate massive amounts of wealth by lending us money.
The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant [slave] to the lender.
