Karma and the American Economy

Updated on August 6, 2014

Mike's Common Sense

There are people, groups of people, and nations that believe they can get something for nothing at the expense of others. These folks are ignorant of the laws of karma. The laws of karma are the universal laws that govern all souls living in the worlds of duality. The best way to describe karma is through Newton’s Law, “For each action, there is an equal and opposite reaction."

Karma is the great balancing power that rules over all souls, and ensures that all souls pay for everything they receive, and receive equal treatment for their behavior towards others. There is no escaping karma. Each and every person, no matter their status, or wealth, is subject to its law; and there are no exceptions. Unlike Newton’s Law which is seen as an immediate after effect of an action, karma may take years, or even lifetimes in order to balance out. It is karma that eventually teaches all souls, through trial and error, the lessons of love they need to master.

Karma effects not only individual souls, but also Nations (which can readily be seen working out in the Middle East), and economies.

For example let’s look at the American economy over the last fifty years. During the era of the 1960’s and 70’s the Unions of America were under the control of organized crime. The unions grew to be so powerful that workers were receiving pay and benefits over and above the work they were performing for the corporations. Workers were being paid huge wages, and performed little to nothing to receive them. In cases like this karma will come to balance out the scales, which it did. In 1981 President Reagan fired all of the unionized air traffic controllers, and got away with it. It was a blow that the unions have never recovered from. The era of the 80’s to the present have seen the corporations take control by exporting American jobs, slashing worker’s pay, and eroding their benefits; boosting their profit margins at the worker’s expense. In time karma will once again balance out the scales in favor of the workers; be it through compromise, or bloody revolt. History has shown us this in the past time and time again.

Anytime one side has an upper hand on the other, karma will always be involved; this causes upheaval and grief. The best policies and laws are ones that benefit everyone equally. When you take greed out of the picture, you also remove the effects of karma because there is nothing that needs to be balanced out.

If we want a smooth running economy we need to realize this fact

      Hi Steve, As a union member I too have feared for the unions survival. The unions have had no teeth since Reagan fired the air traffic controllers.

      Hi Rod good to hear from you. There are many working men and women who are waiting for the pendulum to swing back in their favor.

      As a union member I fear for the future of unions. I too beleive unions are their own worst enemy because of greed. I can only hope that people of reason in government realize the need for unions, and that unions realize that they must be reasonable in their demands.

      Enter the pendulum. Swings both ways. But tends to have momentum. Then it's off to swing just as far on the other side of center. Personally, I'm hanging on for dear life to the pendulum as (I'm hoping)it's nearing the limit of it's swing and then the ride begins to the opposite direction at a speed too fast to comprehend. Can anybody recommend some good lottery numbers?
