Our backwards Thinking

 

1st here is a clip from the movie "The International" explaining what everyone on this site understands about our corrupt banking system.  Notice the ego of the banker, the narcissism when talking about debt.  Lord knows that reinforced backwards thinking keeps the corrupt system going

!

 

Now Listen to Alan Watts about money and the backwards thinking that comes with it.  We elect people with this kind of thinking, maybe that's why the world is screwed up.  We have the resources, but no money to do so! sickening. 

 

!

"People are that crazy" - Alan Watts    Agreed!

Re: Our backwards Thinking

JK121,

I know it seems like pople are crazy, but I think it is because we are supreme people...

Supreme People by Blackalicious from the album THE CRAFT:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BC6HGFbPC74 

Blackalicious - Supreme People lyrics:

[Chorus]
Su-preme (Supreme, Supreme) [x8]

Su-preme people living with they backs aligned
Up against the wall cuz these days are asinine
Living in a money matrix, How cats survive
Some will fade away and wither, others will blast a nine
Kings and Queens working nine to fives
And making nothing searching for a deeper purpose in life
This CAN"T be life...
?With all this work this can't be right...
Without no money in my pockets I just can't see right
I used to try to preach to younguns like, "Do right kids"
Now-a-days all that I can say is, "Get it how you live"
Live how you get it, shit!
Don't nobody wanna get...
A promotion up to fry cook like little Calvin did
Some would rather take a gamble, hey they might to bids
The allure of fast money in this hell-bound system
Got you look at two-hundred bucks a week
Versus, like a thousand in a day
Tell me what makes more sense to these
...

[Chorus]

Trapped like rats in mazes for the cheese
Every natural resource is here, We don't really need money
But certain people need power over people
They act like that cause they're trapped inside their EGO-sphere
And now you can't feel free
Without material possesions, you can't just be [Be: echo]
And without 'em you're left stressin, so anxiously [Be: anxiously]
So you grab the Smith & Wesson, then aim, then squeeze [Squeeze: echo]
To get what's comin' to ya
The block's so hot, it blew the top off the thermometer
The rush for drama is more appealin' than a plain life
Cause life is insane, so insanity is a sane life
It's so easy to see, simple as day and night
SU-preme people born out of the way of the light
In the darkness, trying to fly straight
To some folks it's like being a fish swimmin' with sharks... shit!

(Perhaphs not since men turned their ears the preachings of a mere prophet
2000 years ago have the words of humble men reached so many with such force
? Perhaps because it has been burning for long, now smoldering
Now bursting into hot flames, now hastily covered over to smolder again
Until the next outbreak.)

[Chorus]

SU-preme people only want the best and uhh
SU-preme people won't settle for less then uhh
Straight from royalty put inside projects and uhh
Capitalist system that don't make sense to ya
SU-preme people put against the fence, Get a
?Bit irate and hostile if you aint fixing the...
Problem you created that make these condition up
A little reparation for your acts are sent to us
SU-prome ride or die to get the bucks
?Some by any means so, uhh, lock your benzes up
Tuck your chain and watch and keep your defenses up
All they wanna do is live it up like ?you
Cuz they're

[Chorus]

SU-preme...
SU-preme...
SU-preme...

-Blackalicious - Supreme People lyrics

 

note: bold emphasis added to lyrics.

Also some of the lyrics had a question mark...I filled them in and fixed a few wrong lyrics in bold.

When I first heard this song...I bought the album(THE CRAFT)...incredible lyrics!

*edit to fix lyrics

Re: Our backwards Thinking

"I just think it's interesting to see how people act on their beliefs, you know what I mean? Cos all your beliefs, they're just that. They're nothing, they're how you were taught and raised. That doesn't make 'em real ... it ... makes you realize everything you learned is in fact just learned, and not necessarily true." ~ Bill Hicks ~ 1961-1994

JK,

I'm watching and learning along with you; every step of the way ...

Great Bill Hicks Quote Vanity, that basically sums it all up.  Great song too.

That1guy, ahhaha yeah we have no inches today, we can't build.  It's like today, "Honey we have no more digital entries in our account, our house is going to be repossessed"  

It's funny how we make these imaginary digits relevant when a person defaults on a house payment, but when the Pentagon can't account for 2.3 trillion it's simply ignored.  See the difference of when these imaginary 10100101 through the air become real?  Even though the entire time it's like having no inches.

Its a great line. I immediately thought that Bill Maher could use the analogy to simply explain to the masses the entire basis of our debt money illusion.

Then from today's DD. Global economy $60T, global debt $180T, economic growth 3%, debt growth 3%. Honey we're a bit short of economic growth!

FOX NEWS:  U.S. HOUSING MARKET FEELING A SHORTAGE OF INCHES  

Oh man if we could only add some inches, we can prosper, we have the materials but no inches, DAM!!!!!! IT!!!! What to do???!!!!

 

Or,  MSNBC:  The U.S. has been stuck on tuesday cause they ran out of minutes
