funny thing is that zombies don’t know they’re zombies.
the mindless, ravening braindead hordes who follow their little football teams, drive their little cars to their little jobs and live in their little homes, never stepping out of line, never questioning the status quo or causing any sort of inconvenient scene, as your government ravages and pillages innocent people ( in your name, it’s your government ) every day?
But it not your governments who call the shots, it’s the companies and corporations who fund them.
but you people don’t care because – zombies.
^give it time. these things don’t happen overnight.
They happen when the idea has been around so long, it’s like everyone can co-opt it it as though it was a concept that they’d arrived at independently.
^ It has merit. The other week, a local Christian radio station was debating the immorality of the dole and other communal services funded by taxation. It seems that they agree that citizens should not have to pay for something they will probably never use but have no choice over. If the fucking Christians are getting on board with some of these concepts, ANYTHING is possible.
Why not? Elementary economics teaches us that you will have more of anything that you subsidise. And poverty / welfare will never be “solved” whilst a bunch of bureaucrats keep themselves in a job by perpetuating the poverty cycle. This is why they insert short-lived, reactive programs to deal with poverty and employment issues instead of introducing long-term proactive solutions. Privatise that shit and pay the charities/NGOs for their contracts based on sustainable outcomes, and watch how quickly these problems are overcome.
The smaller our governments become by eliminating underperforming departments one by one, the quicker people will realise that the government is fucking useless and we don’t. actually. need. it.
Re: the tight-fisted Christians, you’re probably right to a certain extent, however I truly believe that many of them would do what they were discussing on the radio: donate more to individual charities that THEY believed in, in place of a forced tax for welfare.
Let’s say that you currently pay $18,000 a year in income tax. Wouldn’t you prefer to be in control of where that money goes? YOU fucking worked for it, so if you want to contribute half of it to Indigenous housing and employment programs, and half of it to hookers and beer, that should be your prerogative.
You’re cynical about government agenda but not that of private corporations?
It just wouldn’t work. You and your cirle of family and friends may be socially responsible, charitable people but I guarantee the majority of the population would only donate (or pay tax) towards those areas that benefit themselves. And once again, the rich get richer etc. etc.
Your christians for example, would much prefer that their money went solely to helping christian poor.
Ok, if I understand this right, it doesn’t fucking matter if the greedy bastards eat most of the pie, they’re just going to buy another one because they fucking can, anyways…if the 1 percent people keep bitching about not having enough fucking pie, the 99 are going to keep baking it, what difference does it make how much pie they make? Rich people STILL get to eat, poor people still spend their money on drugs, gambling and shitty cars..instead of food.
