Black Friday is some sort of historic event, historical only in the fact that we fall for this nonsense every year. It’s merely another consumer holiday that the Corporations look forward to.
They have charts projecting throughout the year with demographics and stats on how much money they anticipate to manipulate us into buying on yet another contrived and irrelevant holiday. Another excuse to claim it’s sale time, when it’s actually CON time once again, as it is every few months.
As always we as a population of consuming fools, cannot resist.
Consumerism is a mental illness.
We run out, stand in lines,sleep in tents, fight each other, kick and claw to buy things we don’t need or want and if the stupid crap weren’t on sale we wouldn’t even think of buying them. Continue reading
Our money is the Corporation’s blood. Starve The Beast.
The ultimate power over our economy and society is in our hands. No one can take that from us. WE are what powers the beast and we decide if it lives or dies. We have only to let go of our fears and recreate our society so that it reflects the integrity needed for the well being of us all and our planet earth.
Better to stop now than when it’s too late and finite resources are gone. Our world resources can no longer support our unconscious purchasing. The corporate machine will continue to feed and supply our fears until it dies of thirst. The beast has no consciousness or integrity. It’s not designed to. A corporate entity has only profit as its guiding belief system. It answers to a board of directors that demand more quarterly profits at whatever the cost. It is a decentralized entity functioning outside the law and almost impossible to hold accountable for its worldly destructive methods.
Stop Buying! Continue reading
Stop the corporations. Stop feeding the beast. Stop buying. Money is OUR power.
“Working jobs we don’t like, so we can buy shit we don’t need.”
Consumerism is the ultimate power. While the bloated beast of Corporation feed off our life’s blood, sweat and money, we as a people continue to play a game of compliance to strange rules implying that we must continue this cycle of feeding a contrived economic model destined for failure out of fear. That fear is a lie created by those in power to enslave us and to feed off our toil. Corporations’ greed and hypocrisy will be our downfall as a society, because we have become disconnected from ourselves and our neighbors. We have allowed this beast to grow beyond our ability to control, yet the simplest of means is available to us to regain control and inject integrity and economic stability in our country and those outside it. Stop buying!
In the past, Kings and Aristocrats were patrons of great artists, painters, musicians and even writers. The upper classes supported great minds to accomplish great works.
As we were once empowered by the printing press, the King was outraged that the commoners would be able to read the Bible and not have to go through the Church or him. What sacrilege to even think of such heresy.
Now, we the people are truly in power, as the internet has provided us with the ability to communicate unrestricted, to some degree, with our peers and we can read and listen to all we desire. The internet has dissolved the necessity for the aging middleman model, the behind the scenes greasy, talentless manipulator that pushed boxes around for a living, controlling distribution and strong-arming frightened merchants into sales control and price fixing.
