One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star. -Nietzsche

We are the 100%

We give corporations all of their money Corporations get all of their money from consumers. We give power to McDonalds, Coca Cola, Bieber, Britney, and everything else we sustain by throwing our money at it. In turn, these shoddy products become our standards and replace organic culture with a baseline of the lowest common denominator, never aiming for quality or good outcomes. We are modern, and we create modern societies without desire for what was previously known to be rewarding, robust, and reliable.

We thought it was flattering to say everyone should get a college degree, so we systematically watered down the educational system to keep it open to all, making higher education into expensive adolescent daycare with almost worthless degrees. But at least for a moment we believed we had found a way to conquer nature's inequality.

We thought it was right for everyone to own a house, so we invented dangerously innovative credit products so that unstable people with poor credit and insufficient income could partake in the dream.

We imagined we could achieve goals without a realistic premise, and someone else could take care of the details later.

We created these problems because we asked for them, promoted them, supported them, silenced their critics, and now pretend to be surprised by their obvious consequences. We act disillusioned and cheated because we lied to and cheated ourselves.

We are the 100%.
