Business

#^#^#

We're all aware now that the basic idea of a business providing a useful good or service and earning a fair return to maintain workspaces and equipment, and pay employees, has gone very awry.

The entire process has become twisted into a love of money itself, turning into some sick game of Monopoly. In order to continue this game they must dupe us through psychological means to buy their products thereby keeping their money streams running, and pulling us into a demented world where objects define who we are, and instilling in us envy and greed.

And not to neglect the people who make no product or service but simply play with money and move it around, that are now being bailed out worldwide by...the People.

This greedy "thing" lust, and money worship is:

Bad for the person: Why do people steal? Why do people cheat? Why will some people murder for money?

Bad for society in general: The question often becomes not is it better for the people, not is it better for the Environment, but how much does it cost or how much can I make?

Bad for the World environment: We generate enormous volumes of garbage. Much of that garbage goes into water and air, we are literally poisoning ourselves, and the completely blameless animals and plants, of our World. That is insanity. We reduce natural environments more and more and are killing off precious forms of life in the mad quest for more, more, more.

Here are a couple of things we here at Pagan Today can suggest, and we invite everyone to the Community page to discuss their own ideas:

Love your Life, not money. Money is just a useful means for agreeing about the relative worth of things.

Personally make a choice to free-think. Many of today's businesses (and governments) use advanced psychology to manipulate us into wanting things we don't need and never wanted, and into believing things that aren't true. Resist this brainwashing.

Choose what you need. Choose what is important to you. Buy those things and use them, and stop buying junk to simply make yourself feel temporarily better. If you have children, be circumspect in what you give/buy them.

When a company makes junk, don't buy it! How many businesses now exist that make plastic trinkets, cheap knockoffs, and other generally unuseful things? These companies are not dedicated to a necessary service or quality good, they are dedicated to only making money. They exploit our tendency to buy things at random, resist this.

This also goes for low quality material. Yes it's cheaper but is often "instant-garbage", poorly made and straight to the bin. Reward quality and craft, and avoid opportunistic profit-farms.

And realize the power we have united together. If we find out that a company has poisoned the environment, treated it workers poorly, lied to us, manipulated us, stolen from us...then vote with your money and stop spending money on ANY of their products.

Were we to cut off their money supply, together, en mass, the companies would change their ways immediately. Remember they love money and only feel pain without it. Withhold it from them to effect change.

We urge business owners to forego the madness: simply produce a product or service that is of use to the People, that is made with quality in mind, treat their workers and customers fairly, respect the Earth that is giving them the materials to work with, market your items with information not psychology, and to charge a fair price that allows the business to continue. If you have the desire to subjugate, subdue, and dominate the market and the World, please stop and just go play a game of Monopoly.
