FK – They already treat workers like robots. Only the new robots won’t need breaks, sleep or food.
What does society already look like? The tool-using monkeys, probably someone’s biological robots, already mindlessly move from one task to another, wasting most of their time here in exchange for money, struggling desperately to NEVER think about anything that actually matters much less standing up for themselves against governments or employers that regularly treat them like jackasses.
FK – If we didn’t have ‘cheap food’ many would starve and have even worse health. Look at some of the pix from the not-so-good-ol-days. A lot of those people looked malnourished or ill. and they were the ones who could afford to buy a portrait.
A lot of this may go back to human transition to agriculture which allegedly happened only a few thousand years ago. Have our bodies evolved to deal with this diet yet? Do we want them to? I was surprised when I learned it’s only been a couple thousand years since some of us became lactose tolerant.
I grew up on a small farm and going to the redneck mecca and buying stuff trucked in from other places beats the hell out of hot days in the sun hoeing weeds.
I have no romantic illusions about that experience. Too bad many others don’t. But then my grandmother enjoyed gardening and many others do.
Our ancestors spent their time in and out of the shade, in forests or on savannahs, working, hunting, gathering in the cooler periods and resting betwixt and between. This is common sense.
I don’t trust the corporations any farther than I trust our evil governments. What they do to us needs to be laid at the feet of ‘we the people’ because the average dumbass isn’t doing his/her job in keeping them in line.
The evil ones are a small percentage of the population. The alleged ‘good’ sit on their asses waiting for the world to end allowing the bad to do their thing without retribution.
We have a representative republic, guaranteed to every state, not a democracy.
We have a Bill of Rights that acknowledges rights we are born with, not granted or created by any government.
We vote with the knowledge that voting is the most violent act anyone can participate in because voting is electing someone to hire someone to stick a government gun in our neighbors’ faces and force our version of reality on them at the threat of their very lives.
We stand ready to protect our Liberty and the Liberty of our neighbors, not destroy it, via any version of authoritarianism, of any age or place.
We are prepared with knowledge and force of arms to make war against and kill if necessary those who would destroy our Bill of Rights whether they represent domestic or foreign enemies.
We do not lie to ourselves, our families, our friends, our business associates, our descendants, our enemies, about these things and do not EVER tolerate those who would have us do so.
If the troops were fighting for our freedom they’d all be here.
FK – I’ve delivered some freight over the years and I regularly see truck zombies drive multi-state trips with nothing more than a jacket and a shower bag, if they have that.
I can’t feel sorry for morons who allow themselves to be treated like jackasses and don’t have the brains to take along basic survival gear like a sleeping bag or wool blanket in case they break down or roads are impassable in severe weather. I also can’t feel sorry for morons who allow their employers to degrade their health and steal their home life and require all their time in the name of the ‘corporate mission’ which is always to make the owners and stockholders richer.
But the unfortunate truth is the govt. and the corporate workaholic assholes will treat us like jackasses as long as the majority stupidly puts up with it because of some mindless braindead so-called ‘work ethic’ that says ‘the job’ or ‘the mission’ or profit or whatever they throw in your face comes before a human being.
The assholes who tell us such should be gut shot and drug down the road a very long distance.
Those who have a slave mentality and allow themselves to be treated as slaves fully deserve it but that doesn’t mean all of us do.
The commies who this joker represents would put a handful of bureaucrats in charge that will be no less heartless in their own way than any other version or ism. We shouldn’t be allowing commies to hold any public position whatsoever.
The SCOTUS is NOT the final arbiter of our rights. WE ARE! This means we have the right to kill the corporate workaholic assholes and the commie trash when they try to push us into a corner we can’t escape from. In fact the mistake is not stopping the garbage before it gets that far.
Yeah, this is an old vid but the topic is still very ‘fresh.’
FK – Marx’s solutions were evil but he was right about the problem. Most people/sheeple have jobs(just over broke) because they’re poor, not because they give a drowned rat’s ass about the corporate mission, which is to make the owners/stockholders richer.
Did American corporations move their factories after NAFTA was passed because they felt sorry for the peasants in Latin America and Asia? Only a moron or blatant liar would claim so.
They’d have us all on 16 hour days 6-7 days a week if they could get away with it, sleeping within walking distance of the plant/office and shopping at the company store with company script.
We do need basic laws to protect workers and the environment with real penalties for the corporate workaholic assholes, not just fines their companies can easily pay then return to ‘business as usual,’ while keeping the modern commies out of our governments.
And we should force the assholes to allow part time hours for those who actually want a life outside of their ‘job’ and penalize them for forcing their workers to commit slow or fast suicide, degrading their health, in the name of keeping a job. If I order something from any online retailer I have absolutely no right to expect anyone involved in that process to commit fast or slow suicide or degrade their health in the name of getting that product to me. Neither do the corporations that make, warehouse or sell those products.
Many workers have jobs just so they can have health insurance. Basic medical coverage needs to be affordable. The insurance companies are like the banksters, they wouldn’t be in business if they weren’t making money hand over fist. As the old saying goes look for the biggest nicest buildings in town.
Well now that would include the ‘just-us’ center. But that’s another vid.
As someone who’s delivered freight for corporations I know that if a driver feels required/forced to drive sleep deprived either because of a ‘just in time’ delivery system or in order to earn enough money to justify the ‘trucking lifestyle’ which is basically shit, then kills or seriously injures someone because they fell asleep at the wheel the insurance carried by the trucking company probably won’t cover all the ‘costs’ and the driver can lose everything as well as go to prison.
When companies damage their employees beyond repair they just kick them to the curb when they can because they know there’s another desperate worker waiting in line.
The key is not that the exchange is ‘voluntary’ the key is that so many are so stupid/desperate they put up with being treated like jackasses which means everyone else has to put up with the same shit treatment, if they want a ‘job.’
The commies in our govt. passed the ‘regulations,’ as in healthcare, in the name of tearing down the old system so they could install their more evil system. It wasn’t done to help anyone, but to gain power, sew discord and chaos and confusion and fear. Often they and their commie front groups are funded by the very rich men they claim to oppose.
Funny thing that.
The simple truth is that the elites know the ‘ordinary citizen’ is a herd animal that will graze and breed its way through it’s existence in this world while extolling some mindless ‘work ethic’ it was taught in school or at home or in church that was really designed to make sure it stays a good slave while working for some false ‘amerikan dream’ or ‘paradise in the next life’ with ‘pearly gates’ and golden arches, err, streets.
The income tax, brought about by the elites/banksters, was placed on every one during WWII which was also brought about by the elites/banksters, so when they steal their money out of our paychecks before they even reach our hands it proves we are still their slaves. The inter-generational parasites/constituents intentionally created by the welfare state are also slaves/tools designed to help keep the elites in power.
It’s really just one version of authoritarianism vs another because we’re still a very primitive species and we still exist in a very dark age.
