Recently I took on the role of a step Dad to four kids. The oldes is 17 and will be off to college next year. The other day I took the middle kids, Dessy and Max to a movie because Mom was working a double shift. The unfortunate reality of government rule is a form of slavery that is managed by debt.
Unfortunately in the scenario you rearly have the chance to buy your freedom, so people are heard saying, “This is the way life is, what can we or we can’t do anything about it.”
But yes you can! As my girlfriend’s daughter reminded me, “there is always a way out or haven’t you learned anything from that movie we watched!”
Anyone who has ever seen a 1980’s horror movie, knows that the people who live through the experience changed up what they were doing to fight the monster at the last minute. We as a culture must make simular changes in our lives if we are ever going to evolve beyond our constant bickering across political, economic and demographic lines.
Why Should We As Individuals Submit To Social Constructs Such As Money?
All of my life I have seen the hopes and dreams of those around me get squashed by one common obstacle. I would hear from them, “If I had the money I would …” But the dream gets pushed aside for an indefinite period of time, even passed their own death. Money is the most effective way to control large groups of people and so governments control their own currency.
We tallorate the abuse from our employers and the theft of our resources through taxation, but for how long? Today I had the bank take the money from my account that is meant for the car payment. I must admit that I am a bit stressed. So I am looking for a bigger picture as to why some of these things are happening to me. So I fell back to a valuable resource for higher reason and turned on Stephan Molyneux of Freedomain Radio. I have been listening to him for years and sound logic has always comforted me.
After watching Stephan I went to pick up a small check at Epress. It wasn’t much but Nicole needs the money so I just cashed it, to give to her. I did need some of if for gas to get through the next few day of work, but the rest is hers. Our freedom comes from taking responsibility for our own lives.
If the bills that we make get paid first, we have more money to work with the next time around. This is the example that I am trying to set with the kids. I am also trying to teach them to put away money with every paycheck to invest for the future. As slaves to our debt we must change the way we look at money.
Money is a social construct that is designed to hold power over those who don’t have it. But if we approach it wisely, money doesn’t have to be a scary thing. In the next post I will be talking about closed end stocks that pay a monthly Dividend.
