For decades now, think tanks for hire and consulting enterprises have been feeding our governments reports that serve up foregone conclusions. Privatization, deregulation and regressive taxation have become the false spectres of progress. Reaganomics, Thatcherism, and similar ideologies emerged, and mere finances have become the ultimate metric of success. It feeds cancers of economic inefficiency that clump together and legislate themselves into permanence. They starve the rest of us of our potential, leaving only debt in their wake. And rather than fight it, we join in, letting our self-worth be determined by a fictitious amount in a banking spreadsheet, while those in power tower above us, pulling the strings.
Fight back. Own your thoughts. Seek quality, not quantity.
