Some people are fortunate to inherit the family home, and know they most likely will never have to move. They are comfortable, and even though there are day to day struggles, which may or may not threaten that home, if cards are played well they will live out their entire lives there.
Others though, the majority, are constantly moving from place to place, largely due to not being able to afford current dwelling. They get evicted for non payment, the bank takes back the house they once lived in unwilling to work out a different payment plan to keep up with current circumstances.
I’m curious if this isn’t somehow a rigged system. If people are constantly uprooted from their place of comfort, then they are not able to concentrate on the mess that is going on around them. Personally, I feel this is a plan devised by those involved in the bigger picture. Banks charge a certain amount of money for a home, not because that home is worth a quarter million dollars, but because that is the ‘going rate’. If things were sane people would be able to afford housing on their meager wages, which by the way, most families have meager wages, regardless of this newest tax break.
It seems the wealthy are the only ones who can purchase, and actually pay off a home. The rest of folks are scurrying around collecting the scraps with which to feed their families, while the majority of their funds go to support this exorbitantly price structure over their heads, and ALL the things it requires, like water, sewer, garbage, food and for some, cable. Telephone service is also outrageously priced, keeping families pockets so thinly lined, they will never climb out of this box, unless they are forced out, left scrambling for a new box to hunker down in.
All the while the government, and its branched systems, work together to keep the focus off them. When the heat gets too high, they plan a mass shooting, or some other type of chaos, or war.
I’m surprised many more people do not see this. If they did, and care for each other were nurtured, we’d band together, forming small communities in which funds were pooled and utilized to support systems to more easily ran by these little communities, or large extended families. Gardens would be planted, rain would be collected, and simpler ways of living would be had to better care for each other. Yes, it would require work, but there would be better stability there, should the running of the community be handled by them all, rather than an outside source. Small communities trading and banding together to assure that each community had what it needed to get along okay, and not just the bare minimum, but in clean comfort.
There are folks who attempt to go off grid, some of which have their land confiscated because they are not playing into the system, ie: buying city water, tapping into the sewer system, instead choosing to compost there waste in whatever ingenious manner they think.
It’s a trap folks, and we’re given just enough of our wages to keep the illusion alive, the rest are taken in taxes to fund and foster war and other biological schemes to keep people ailing. Now the skies are full of chemicals which affect the soil and water health, which in turn affect the ability to grow foods in a personal garden. It is a big scam, which most cannot see, or are unwilling to consider, as they lay there in the blankets, warm and full, not thinking of the others on the street, and those with less.
Just as the occasional drinker who has a glass of wine or two while dining out with friends gets in their car and drives home, bashing the person who may have been pulled over for DUII … they think it will never happen to them … but it could, it very easily could, should someone ahead hit the brakes too hard and the police smell it on them when they arrive.
Of course, so many people have the mentality it could never happen to them, they do not consider themselves to be an abuser … maybe not, but if they use, it could happen to them.
And then everyone was living in the streets while all the money had been horded by the ‘law makers’. The final step is to gather them up and put them in a facility where they will be ‘cared for’ and not be an eyesore, where others will not see them, and just make them disappear. But what will really happen to them?
