Where has our future gone?

It is becoming obvious to me that any chance of a bright future for mankind is gone. In the 1980’s there was a glimmer of hope shining through the blackness of the cold war. There was always talk that humanity would eventually scale back its weaponry and reach across the boarders to shake each other’s hand’s.

But it’s clear now that that will never happen. The pieces of shit that are running countries around the world, these old men of the baby boomer era that have but a few more years left of life are selfishly forcing the future down a path that they will never see. Through their own personal greed driven philosophy, they are making decisions that will steer not just humanity, but all other helpless life on this planet, from the largest elephant to the lowly mold. And most of these “Men” will never live to see the outcome of their decisions. Greed is now the only device steering the world and it’s a power struggle of countries to gain as much of that control as they can, at any cost. It’s now clear that humans will never work together for any grand scheme to make life for all better.

Marketing departments are working around the clock to capture more and more of your attention. Exploiting weaknesses in the human mind to reel you in with one purpose and that is to get their hands on your money. And not just to get your money, but to get you addicted to “THINGS YOU NEED” and trick you into working longer hours to earn more and more money to spend it on these “THINGS YOU NEED”. In effect, you are trading your life, in the form of unnecessary time spent at work, just so you can trade that money earned for these “THINGS”. How much do you really need? How many hours per week do you have to work to feed, clothe and house yourself? If you cut out the internet bill, cable/satellite TV bill, car payment, credit card interest rates, car insurance, cell phone monthly bill, cell phone purchase payment and all the other luxury items that are marketed to you. You would only need to spent 20-30 hours a week earning that. All these other hours spent at work are a complete waste. A hamster wheel that spins into eternity or until you are dead. After your current cell phone is paid off in two years, the next “New One” will be dangled in front of your face and your weak mind will fall for it again, spending $699, $799, $899. You will make payments for the next two years on top of the monthly access charge. All that money is a total throw away. At the end, there is nothing to show for all those hours spent at work. Other than a pile of dead technology. On average, people are paying nearly $100 per month on a cell phone and data plan, add in the cost of paying off an $800 cell phone in two years and you have lost $2000 in one year times every year. $2000 a year is a vacation!

Add in a monthly TV bill of $65 per month, that’s $780 per year and your cell bill and your throwing away almost $3K on services you don’t need and services that will never end. A hamster wheel that keeps you running and working harder than you need too.

There are things that are rarely spoken about in our modern age. One of them is the manipulation of our minds by large tech companies that are getting people addicted to their products with tiny rewards. Little endorphin releases that never stop. Humanity is moving ever faster towards an all-electric future, but it’s also an all synthetic future. And an all manipulated future.

When was the last time you went a full 24 hours without your phone?

Or a week?

Or a month?

It’s almost unthinkable…. why? Because it’s an addiction!
