We hold back the tools our children need

We have betrayed our progeny. Shamelessly.

More interested in shameless self-promotion today, we bumble in haste from one mess to another rather than give our children the purchase they need to position themselves to extricate their generation and future generations from the predicaments we’ve created in rush for what we call progress and success.

More to the point, we inhibit them. We put up obstacles. We try to keep them ignorant and uneducated. Education is little more than shallow babysitting and political indoctrination these days.

Exploiters and oppressors prefer for people to be ignorant and uneducated. This makes them more susceptible to manipulation and less likely to ask questions. Exploiters don’t like having to explain themselves or be held accountable for their shady accounting shenanigans.

Oppression is just a more extreme form of exploitation.

They only do get away with this because the rest of us are so easily distracted and are usually busy with wild goose chases assigned to us by the exploiters. We are also lazy. You have to stay on top of exploiters. They are alway up to something. You can’t turn your back for a minute.

Clearly this system isn’t working for anyone but the exploiters.

They aren’t going to change voluntarily.

The rest of us will have to change voluntarily. And we will, one way or another.

Whether we want to or not.
