Why do we have to work?
“Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work and driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for – in order to get to the job you need to pay for the clothes and the car, and the house you leave vacant all day so you can afford to live in it.” ― Ellen Goodman.
At face value and viewing life through the brainwashed society we are all born into, the answer may sound rather obvious, we need to earn money to purchase material objects in order to survive.
However, one must ask in a world which fundamentally has enough natural resources to feed clothe and house every single person why there is such a work ethos.
The attitude that is conditioned into our psyche from a young age is that we have to learn a skill and use that to get a job in order to earn money, which in term feeds the growth of the economy. Land, oil, energy, money, food, water, to name a few.
This creates a survival response and an automatic panic in humans which causes us to be selfish and greedy. We clearly live in a corrupt unjust society that rewards dishonesty and selfishness.
Technology is being suppressed in the energy sector that could end the fossil fuel industry overnight. We are led to believe that we are running out of resources and the world is overpopulated when, in fact, the reality is completely the reverse.
There is enough to go around and waste and pollution seems to be the byproduct of an unsustainable growth and greed based ideology. We live in a debt-based monetary system where money is created by banks in the act of just placing digits on a screen.
The fact of the matter is we have to work because we are free ranged slaves controlled by people of wealth who use the monetary system and energy sector to control and protect their own selfish interests. It is an obvious form of brainwashing and is used widely by politicians and the media. This is also all by design in order to keep the wealth in the hands of a selected few, mostly banking elite and royal bloodlines.
