Do we work to live or work for our government to concur?

    It starts when we are little..we get programmed to think about the future in terms of our career paths. It puts pressure and stress on young shoulders that we have to achieve greatness, to be able to partake in the opportunities life has to offer.

    On the other hand we have for example politicians who master; the art form of deception and false given hope to nations. These groups of people sit there and reap money from our pockets. 'They put this back into things beneficial for us' - some may well say. However a report says the US are expected to spend between $620-$661 on nuclear weapons and programming.. And this benefits who?

    My question is do you think the world is changing for the better or worse?

    With specific governments, certain regulations, prices rising faster then we've seen before and expenditure we have no say in. What's your say?

      If you think that prices rising are faster than we've seen before you obviously did not live through the 70's and 80's with its double digit inflation.  Nor are people reaping money from our pockets, deceptive politicians or false hopes anything new; they have been going on for centuries.

    Personally I feel as though we are kept in the dark, and they are trying to dumb us down from seeing the bigger picture. Over the past centuries we have seen evil groups of men wanting the rule the world, however people being freedom fighters would not have allowed their evil ruling. Instead they now use a gradual approach and delude masses into accepting their ideas. The gradualism itself, along with distraction (e.g study, sport, payments of bills) is being used effectively.

      The political situation in our country and the Supreme Courts edict that corporations are people too takes us out of the dark ages and into a new form of government. It places the responsibility for running the country squarely set on money. Money has finally become "THE" power that sat in the shadows for many years. Eisenhower on leaving the White House warned us of the military industrial complex that formed after our build up in WWII. They are lobbying congress at a horrendous rate for more programs to fill their coffers while Presidents have come and gone who either supported the build ups or put them on hold. The FED unconstitutionally writes loans to private industry that used to be relegated to Congress. We bail out multi billion corporations while they stash money overseas. Money is our GOD and anybody that gets in the way will be destroyed.
