    Re the video:

    I get it, I played the game of Monopoly that demonstrates how in the end of capitalism one player has everything.

    It might be wise to tweak the rules a little so it doesn’t end that way but damn, that socialism is so lame your destiny set by the state, screw that.

    And besides all this talk of equality and fairness sounds lame to me cause I think if things were “fair” it would suck for me cause I am above average in so many ways.

    But it is bullshit how the paper pushing class gets more of the wealth than those of us that do and make real tangible things in the world.

    I don’t know anymore, people in their corporate offices and bureaucrats armies of bureaucrats shuffling papers and having affairs with each other playing with computers and office supplies all day producing really nothing making more money than construction workers and mechanics and electricians and everyone else that does real work.

    I don’t know anymore but again socialism is so lame your destiny set by the state, screw that.

    Of all the political stuff I have read online THIS describes the problem the very best.

    I have said this for years, most people just do bullshit.

    Edit: The video ends half way then you have to go some other website.

    I guess I am not the only one who liked this if it inspired people to put stickers all over the subway.

    Dudes alright.

    I figured out the bullshit job thing a long long time ago as a kid when you had to buy these stupid stickers to use the boat launch ramp for the sole purpose of paying 10 useless morons hang out down there checking stickers all summer. That concrete ramp and old dock were paid off decades before.

    Same shit at the DMV getting new stickers every year and then that money used to send armed men out, police, to make sure you have a this year sticker. Pointless waste.

    And I also watched houses being built, gee that’s not very hard, a few men playing with tools for a month, so why the hell does it take 30 years to pay for that ???

    So when I read David Graeber’s bullshit jobs article a few months ago I was instantly a fan.

    More stuff I found,

    Then there is the ultimate menace, the absolute evil… Financial Services. Financial Services is a huge industry – banking, credit cards and insurance are bigger in the UK than manufacturing. Financial Services has provided vast numbers of pointless jobs.

    No creation of anything useful or worthwhile is involved

    Financial Services is pretty much all based on what used to be called usury – the practice of making money from money. No creation of anything useful or worthwhile is involved. No real wealth is being created (to use Buckminster Fuller’s definition of real wealth as whatever “nurtures and accommodates human life”).

    Now try to imagine a society where people work only on things that are essential, beneficial or enjoyable. The essential work would probably require only a few hours a week at the most. There would still be unpleasant jobs, but if we had a true labour market, the most unpleasant jobs would be the highest paid jobs.

    From http://www.anxietyculture.com/crapjobs.htm

    I always saw this scam in the world. I have always been a science nerd and can see these things.

    And have always cringed when I hear politicians say “create jobs” WTF create efficiency so we have to work LESS !!!!

    The economy of Venezuela is destroyed by the criminal World Bank, oil companies ConocoPhillips and ExxonMobil with a nice role for my home country the Dictatorship of the Netherlands: Oil giants destroy Venezuela through Dutch treaty
    I call the destruction of Venezuela more the result of state controlled “capitalism” (or plundering), than of “socialism”.

    There is even a connection to my terrible situation.
    In 2011, 2012 I was represented in a court case against Rothschild bank ABN AMRO in front of the supreme court (Hoge Raad) by law firm De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek, who apparently is closely connected to ABN AMRO (over the years they represented ABN AMRO in various mergers and acquisitions), so it shouldn’t be surprising that they supported ABN AMRO and not me.
    De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek also represent the Royal Dutch Shell: http://www.citycareerseries.com/article.php?article_id=255&sub_category_id=25
    They also represented the national Dutch gas company NAM; while Shell and ExxonMobil both own 50% of the NAM (website in Dutch): https://www.ftm.nl/artikelen/nam-verdeel-en-heers-groningen

    Uprising, that is an outstanding video! We all need to learn so much more. Our educations have been diluted and poisoned with propaganda.
