The system is destructive to many and has plunged billions in to a life of poverty and slavery. National debts are used as threats and are pretty questionable to say the least. I always ask who do we owe the money too? What would happen if we did not pay? Would food suddenly stop growing or water stop flowing? The answers are we owe it to banks (which are private businesses) and nothing would change if the debt was not paid. The only threat that comes from not paying national debts is the actions of the greedy, powerful elites that want the debt in place.
And its not even like the elites actually want the debt paid because National debt and deficits are not created to be paid they are created to control people. Why and how else could governments and corporations force the masses in to taking jobs that do not even take away the need for benefit pay outs and top ups? Yet corporations and billionaires carry on getting richer and richer.
The system is playing us it is extorting us and cunningly blinding us with the science of finances and markets.
On rare occasions the system benefits us. It gives us certain rights, these rights exist because people have in the past fought and died for them. If you are fortunate enough to be in a situation where the system benefits you or owes you take it without guilt.
This system has been rigged to suit the very rich and greedy. Tax havens, loopholes, and lobbying laws makes it easy for them to live excessive lives that come with at the cost of others. When the system suits the rich it literally makes and saves them billions when it suits us we are lucky to get a few thousand. To be annoyed at somebody claiming small amounts of welfare when corporate giants make billions is shortsighted, small minded and used as a weapon against welfare and benefit pay outs. Its like have a pet mouse and a pet pig but moaning at the amount the mouse eats.
