Shackled to this never-ending dependency
In our island society, we are determined to fly our flag proudly. The tag — “Quo fata ferunt” (Wherever the fates may lead) — is a concept that should have been replaced a long time ago.
This ideal is fraught with illusion and shifting goalposts that have little or no value for the masses.
The proverbial playing field hinges on which team is in charge and the attributes of the captains. The direction and rules of the game never strengthen or stimulate all participants. But that is not by accident; rather, it stems from the ability to keep the wealthy in a strong position of gain.
On the other hand, it subjects the lesser persons to a constant position of dependency. This reality forges such a format of clinging to the apron strings and waiting for the crumbs to cascade off the table that many, if not most, do not see they are engaging in a fundamental slave value system from their birth to the grave.
Education at a concentrated higher level does not seem to influence breakout ventures, except those that are supportive to the needs of the wealthy element.
The question remains, how can we build an evolutionary success plan by remaining the same?
It's like that adage of going down the same road, expecting a different result.
Or maybe it's just my viewpoint that we were born to be servants to the wealthy and never climb over the walls that shackle us to this never-ending dependency.
Which is why we cannot come to grips with the ability of foreign peoples as a whole who function on the same field of “play and prosper”.
