Not everybody can be the head of a company. Besides, requesting money from a bank is almost always a bad idea. And not everybody has somebody rich in their family.

I don't think so. It isn't always a bad idea. If you need money to grow your store or sth like that, you can lend money from a bank. It wasn't bad I think. If you need money for a marriage ceremony, you can lend money from a bank, my friend. It isn't a problem for me. What's your idea about this? I mean if you might pay this money to a bank, you can lend money.
2019-02-21 14:58
The problem is that a lot of people have no sense of how to sell their product and reach masses. Or they just have stupid fucking ideas and think it's easy to lead a company. It's NOT easy to lead a 1-man company that is out for profit. Tons of 1-man companies in Germany close every year because they can not turn a profit and end in debt. A bank doesn't just give you money. They want it back, and they want more than they gave you. How much more depends on the bank. If you get funded by a bank you're dependent on them. If you run into unexpected costs (like your car needing repairs) you run the risk of going into debt. The only exception is when you're looking to buy and rent away property. I'd never get a fund for something like a car or marriage ceremony, at least not in Germany. You always end up paying more.

What do you mean? why can't you use a blue light filter? windows, most linux distros and OSX all have built in ones including dark modes for the OS themselves.

there is flux

True the big lobbyists and CEOs are all crminals anyways
2019-02-21 14:45
People have not caught on to that yet. Look on the bright side, you die someday and never have to work again. If you don't like it know imagine working until you are 70 if you live that long. We do all have the option to quit but then homeless and likely early death. I could understand the old days when people worked hard on their land for themselves, planting food, building their own home, raising animals but today the majority just work to make others rich that don't really work. If people are not slaves you would not have owners. Basketball players are high paid slaves but they still get bought and sold buy the owners. I think school is just there to get everyone used to the work schedule. With the Internet we don't even need schools today. Everything could be done online. In my country it's against the law to not go to school but they really don't enforce it anymore.
2019-02-21 14:52
>majority just work to make others rich that don't really work I hate that statement. I read this so often and I always imagine somebody that has never been in a leading position anywhere. Salaries are clearly not very well balanced, but if you work for somebody and make them rich while they supposedly do nothing, then why are you working for them? If it's so easy to do nothing and have little responsibility then go to university, create some connections and get all the necessary qualifications yourself. >I think school is just there to get everyone used to the work schedule. With the Internet we don't even need schools today. Everything could be done online. Getting teenagers and children used to a schedule is exactly what a school does. The reason we need schools is because I guarantee you that something ridiculous like 90% of all children or teenagers who go to school wouldn't put a mere 2 hours into doing their own research on the internet if there was no school. Thinking back 10 years I would rather play CS all day than learn 8 hours when I'm at home.
2019-02-21 15:04
Was really talking about the ultra rich. Not going to do the math but imagine you made 100k a year and worked for Amazon. How many years would it take you working making 100k to make the bezos 100 billion worth? Just guessing over 50k years.
2019-02-21 15:06
Yea but after all you didn't have any ideas that help the world and went through with them. You didn't set up a lot of contracts with hundreds of other companies. You didn't get all the extra qualifications and schooling to be the head of such a company. And ultimately, you don't have nearly the same responsibilities as Jeff Bezos. You're just another worker with the required qualifications for a specific job at this company. No more, no less. Is it fair that Jeff Bezos is the richest man and others live at the minimum, or even less? No, but there's nothing that realistically could be done to change that. He earned his money and he can do whatever he wants with it. It's hard to do anything about that.
2019-02-21 15:19
You used the wrong example. Elon Musk is changing the world and deserves every penny. Bezos and Amazon are putting so many places out of business. Ordering stuff online has probably been around forever. Our mall closed around 10 years ago. Bezos is hurting the world.
2019-02-21 15:32
Elon Musk is scam.
2019-02-21 15:33
Dude, I live next to Space X and NASA . I see the rockets with my own eyes going up. There is no scam, he will land the first people on mars and the Tesla cars might be a scam, he's just using them while mostly working on battery tech which he is way ahead of the competition. He co created Paypal and is probably going to end up owning and managing 10 companies before he is finished. He's already shown a real video from his boring company that made a tunnel underground to shoot cars on skids over 100 miles an hour and he built it in the biggest earthquake zone in America. He used the dirt from the drilling machine to build their own bricks on site that cost them 10 cents a brick. I guess it's fitting for Bezos to have more money for now because he just needs a monocle and a top hat and he will look just like the monopoly guy.

2019-02-21 14:50
America has 50 million on food stamps and years ago when I was going to the career center to look for a new job I asked how are there not more homeless people. The lady told me most of them kill themselves or just die. If he lived in the woods odds are an animal would get him or another homeless person. Get injured like breaking a leg and you die, lack of food and water. They don't talk about the homeless problem much but I've seen peoples stuff tossed out on the street for many years, wonder what happened to them. It's actually like the purge. Homeless people fight for their turf and don't like other homeless people in their territory. One used to come in to our place of work asking for money and we later heard the other homeless stoned him to death.

2019-02-21 14:55
The system we have today in most of the world is just a highly evolved version of slavery. More efficient at managing both the the resources and the people. If you falsely believe that you're free then you will work much harder. At least slave owners had to clothe, feed and house their slaves. Now the slaves need to pay for those things. Put healthcare and the status culture on top of that and people are more enslaved now than they have ever been.

2019-02-21 14:57
??? Where do you get your information? So you're saying you can live a normal, average human life without working? Maybe, if you're living in a country with strong social programs, like Finland, but on average the answer is a resounding NO. Women have no love for "losers", the rest of society will hate you, just about everyone will despise or disrespect you. There's a strong cultural stigma attached to not working, which is a very effective tool because most people want to be loved by the people around them. It's what makes us human, and also what makes us very exploitable.

Ok now i got really confused and curious. You don't work and yet you have money. That either means you're living off wealth, or doing something criminal, or living off the state. The last one is the most likely. How can you dislike socialism then? Also to my knowledge Finland is more socialist than Sweden these days.

You know what's the difference between going to work and slavery? The first you can quit or change.
2019-02-21 15:10
Ok you can quit but then you're out on the street. Everything is owned by someone, it's not like you can go find a nice spot by a little river and build a house there living off the land. Someone owns that land, and the trees you'd like to cut for your house etc etc. I'm really curious if you can provide some actual thought provoking ideas about how modern work isn't slavery. It's different yes, and it has more variety and choice. Some people get really good jobs, others don't. If you comply and play the game, you'll do well. I still don't see how it's not slavery though. You can't really choose not to do it.
2019-02-21 15:34

World fryz 
Oh you totally can. The thing is that people want advantages of modern world without it's disadvantages. You can go to some forbidden by god and people place (there are still places like this) in the world and try to live on your own - build a hut, hunt, sow, make your own food, tools and clothes. I'm not sure how long would you survive though. Comparing slavery to modern work is really naive. Slaves didn't have free days, healthcare, possibility to change work, insurances, own stuff, vacations. To be honest, they didn't have anything, they didn't own - they were owned. There always were, and would be, tons of connections, dependences and relations between people, social groups and institutions. It's not modern world, it's just how it has to be. That's how society works. Tbh you're much more free than you would probably be even 50 or 100 years ago, not to mention times before. Plus nowadays, in developed or developing countries most of it circles around money, which isn't such a big concern if you can think about it in proper way.
2019-02-21 15:48
"None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free." Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, a REALLY smart guy. Not a "conspiracy theorist" or a malcontent, a well renowned author. I'll just try to poke a little at your conditioned mind if you'll allow it. What people "want" is extremely arbitrary and malleable. People want what you tell them to want. And in the modern world we've gotten really good at informing people what they should want.
2019-02-21 16:17
I totally agree, both with Goethe and with what you've added. And it absolutely doesn't change anything of what I've said. I'll also explain further what I've said if you don't get it (not meant to be offensive): we, as humanity in general, are NOT totally free of everything and we will NEVER be totally free, nor we were in any part of history. Neither single person will be free of everything, maybe unless dead. You can make yourself more "free" by leaving society and everything that comes with it, but still your "freedom" will be restricted by a lot of factors. Still, we have much more freedom than slaves and modern work system isn't slavery system known from history.
2019-02-21 17:09
It comes down to a matter a perspectives and definitions in the end, I guess. I always enjoy a respectful conversation at least. There are many facets to freedom. All things considered, yes I believe we are more enslaved today than we've ever been. The nature of work (high degree of "bullshit jobs"), The information industry (social media, advertising, profit/politically driven media) and the nature of money (private banks being in control of the money supply) which you correctly stated to be what the world circles around, it all points in that direction. I agree that it's very challenging to change things. But to state that the world has to be this way is defeatist and not true. We're all ruled by a tiny block of power who wants it to be this way though. And that to me is the definition of slavery.
2019-02-21 17:57
We've always been ruled by a tiny block of power (feudals, religion leaders, politics), the only difference is that nowadays that "power" is more hidden and drives from backseat. Same with money - aristocracy, church, even tribe's chief, banks also - they've always controled and had more money (and power) than common people. To be honest, according to historicians, now money is much more diversed than it was before. And again, always every man/instutition with power was spreading it's propaganda, the difference is that now you can spread it worldwide and much easier - but the same comes with true informations and facts - it's easier to spread and find those. The change of the way the world is may be possible. But absolutely not now, not untill we have to eat, drink, sleep, rest, not until we have personal opinions, desires and needs. Not until we have to work (produce food, medical supplies but also luxury goods and entertainment) to live. Of course, the one can try to introduce something different - it was tried before, they called it communism - it didn't work, cost hundreds of millions lifes and had absolutely nothing to do with freedom. No one can be totally free outsied, the real freedom is inside though.
