we got a lot of help though. Ranting about voting is actually nonsense. Government now does pretty much what it wants to. So we have to take charge of a lot more than voting! WE gave up control over our education, just followed the rules to "HIGHER EDUCATION" which very often resulted only inhume student loan debt.
What's something exciting your business offers? Say it here.
Give customers a reason to do business with you.
No more working for pennies and no respect. But that means buying less. Everything falls apart anyway so why pay good money for it. Let's reduce our life to 100 things. It will take a lot of Discipline but we can make it fun together. I am OLD .. when I remember how much stuff we had as a kid to children now it is awful!! Their stuff even has batteries. A kid just swallowed one is is probably damaged for life. What happened to blocks and legos? and making stuff out of nothing. We had vinegar and baking soda from the KITCHEN that also was all of our cleaning needs. Do you own Febreeze? GET OUT! Sorry, comeback when you re evaluate your purchasing decisions. IF our place SMELLS, maybe we need to clean more, put garbage out faster, do laundry sooner .. NOT SPRSY MORE USELESS CHEMICALS IN THE AIR!
Sorry most of our brains are gone. Hopefully they are like muscles and with some new good energy we can get our brain working again. Febreeze is only one example of how we have been HAD. We spend money we don't have .. for things we don't need! Honestly .. we do NOT need half the crap in our house. bbbbb link
Those of us MANY who are struggling .. ARE "in this together"! And we CAN come out of this horrible time, better off. But it will take self discipline and RE-eductaion. What better time to take back our control, than in this new strange and scary period?
Over the last 50 years we gave up ALL our power to a "profit system" that did not include most of us. Especially young people are now left far behind. We older simply did what Marketers wanted and became "sheep Consumers". Corporations now even get us to WANT truly idiotic concepts for their extra profit. We fall in line with no thought ever to the dystopia being created. Those of us wondering where jobs will come from, recognize things are going very wrong today. Even food delivery will be taken over by strange pink robot boxes if you live in Toronto. And those degrees that promised the world are delivering food or pouring coffee. Let's take back natural ways.
Corporations got so obsessed with PROFIT, they completely forgot our VALUE to them. We are their consumers and without Consumers buying, where will their profit be? No job means no buying. They get less sales when none of us can even pay our rent!
Let's forget about asking "the man" for a "job" (modern "mini -slavery"). Let's create a Trade System where we share our skills and resources between us. We will need to go back to local and knowing our neighbours, but that should never have been given up for the "global screen". First, we need Tools we can use THIS MINUTE to calm our terror.
