Self Interest and the Secret of Money
money = survival = self-interest
the polarity by which the money system exists is: either you have money, or either you dont. in the rich parts of the world the upper class, life has become equal to the possession of money. Life is lived because of money. Life is organized and moulded in accordance with the demands and requirements of money. Life is one big worry-trip over money, because it is not available unless you choose for self-abuse. Labour in te current system is self-abuse. Schools are self-abuse. If people would for instance work under the exact same circumstances as they curently do, but without getting paid for it, the self-abuse would be obvious. The power of money: for money well put up with self-abuse and even be gratefull. Children understand their education, through extensive schooling, is aimed towards accomodating to this life, and this is taken for granted - it is all that is known to them, it is all that has ever been presented to them. A child sees that whenever something moves or happens, there is money involved - everything in this reality must be bought. Therefore, basically, children see that money makes things appear: only money makes things possible - money is that which creates this is how children are brought up to become possesed by money - and clearly it is each one for themselves. see, when there exist a lack of money, the "each one for themselves" is created. In the background of everyones lives exist the constant risk: that you might end up with nohing. Every child understands that one day every one will have to fend for themselves, but the schoolsystem cons them to believe it is merely a question of following the rules within the education path that is layed out before them and to play and go along within this as diligently as possible and then everything will turn out fine. so basically, the idea is created that there exist a place for everyone in this world, in terms of work and money. They wil have to wait untill they face the real world of money, before realizing the system holds no promisses nor any guarantees. So, because everyone is so willing to believe they belong to the group that will succeed the entire game is not questionned. but within children is implanted now a fear of 'falling out' of the system, a fear of becomming 'invalid', if their performances dont meet the expectations and criteria of succes, which are portrayed as the ONLY guarantee for succes in life. the succes they display at school will be met and rewarded with money.
The result of this is self-interest: each one will attempt to design a life for themselves, according to the rules of the system, in disregard of everyone else, that will make sure they have money. Because how else will you even survive? this is the point you apparently cannot disregard, you NEED money, wheter you like it or not, thus turning men into wolves. FIRST comes MY money, and THEN, perhaps i will consider another as long as money is not readily available, money will allways be the FIRST point to consider, before anything else. So we are all slaves to money. Within the system there is no choice: you must DEDICATE your life, your existence, to money, because without it you are fucked. This shows clearly how money is the highest rule in this world - we exist through money. And as long the money system remains as is, nothing in this world is able to change
