Saying workers shouldn’t earn more and is bad economics is hogwash to the fullest! They’re worried It just might, maybe, put a ripple in the wealthiest of people’s pockets. And that’s probably not even the case!
Few would argue that sharing is one of the most moral, elevated, and esteemed actions. So why can’t the world share more of it’s wealth? 'Because those who work harder should earn more,' you say? Well how much monetary labor does or can the child starving in a war torn country really do? How much hard labor can a man battling cancer really accomplish? “How many roads must a man walk down Before you call him a man?” as Bob Dylan sang. Actually the previous examples could be people working very hard in life’s work. And beyond this, there are those who are toiling greatly—and are not compensated properly with the current system of money. And who should be the judge of work? Isn’t that mostly known to the very man or woman himself doing it, or dare I say God’s work? And further still, there are those who are quick to buy luxurious yachts and scores of shoes for their closet before investing in the downtrodden. Are these people really so deserving—that others should suffer at their expense? And to add to the madness, there are mansions, that sit empty, EMPTY!—because no one can afford it—or apparently no one is working that hard. Well I say damn this system—damn it straight to hell! Something must change—and indeed it is and will. Because we can only go along so long avoiding the eyes of mercy. 'There are safety nets in place,' you say? “Food stamps and welfare,” you say? Well I call bullshit, because we should have trampolines, not safety nets. We should have rocket pads for the poor and weak—so that they can become strong, and society with it.
Being able to take constructive criticism and calmly and constructively talking about a subject while disagreeing with the other person’s point of view is one of the rarest traits in humans I have seen. Being able to look at something from many different angles is a true sign of maturity and intelligence. I am weary of the man who is overly cocky in what he thinks he knows. We can be an expert, but we can always learn more.
I think there is still a better way to share the music we listen to. Sharing youtube videos and posting links is nice, but there needs to be a faster, more efficient and emotionally connective way to share music. Great business opportunity.
From nothing, to the womb, to life to…? What comes next? More consciousness? If we plot time vs. consciousness on a graph it seems to be an exponential increase of consciousness. I hope the trend continues. Or, if we do return to nothing—will we be born again? That would be like a cosine wave. Or should our graph be three dimensional?
I believe in the future people will be easily identifiable in public. I can see holographic displays showing name and affiliations and work etc projecting from the person upon entering places or presenting themselves to security persons. much like a video game, avatars will be present. of course, this could all be regulated or put to a stop but the technology will be there and really already is. except for the hologram stuff I guess.
The government is spying on us. So I say we return the favor. We need to watch our government like never before. Let’s turn the cameras around, let’s collect our own data. Let the watchers become the watched. This system has been built on our ignorance and indifference and it will whither and be swept away by our collective education.
Did the Super Bowl advertisements reflect what’s really important in this world? Did it give attention to the hungry, to the war-torn and forgotten? Did the money spent enlighten the viewers as to how to bring about peace? The point is that there is not a direct relationship between money spent on advertisements and moral magnitude. Our society should question its direction. Was it money well spent? What are we really investing in? Don’t get me wrong, sports are great. But when $4 million is spent on one Super Bowl advertisement, it makes me question if our money is really elevating humanity. Let’s just imagine now, if all the money spent on Super Bowl advertisements was given to education, or cancer research, or feeding the hungry or something altruistic.
And this, this is why I was smiling from ear to ear when M.I.A. gave the middle finger two years ago. It was very, very appropriate.
