Have you ever heard of the saying , "They are worth more alive than dead"? I think this is the business decisions of major institutions. Yes, I know....I'm making a conspiracy theory, but if I was greedy like them I'd do the same thing.
You're probably like, "Odom, get to the point!" I think these institutions use the "worth more alive.." model with a twist. They use, "They are worth more in debt than financially free". Ok...let me explain. There are 5 major institutions that control America:
5. Credit Bureaus
GUESS WHAT! They are all kinfolk (that's cousins just in case you yelled WTF at the computer screen) and they work together!
You probably heard that 95% of the wealth is owned by BIG businesses and 5% is owned by investors. Look at the history of colleges and universities. We always hear major institutions "making a donation" to school programs. If I drop $10 mil on something....I'm going to have some say how it's ran....indirectly.....behind the scene. For generations the media has pump it in our heads that we should finish high school, graduate college, so we can get a good job with benefits. Now it's part of society....if you think different...you are labeled as an "F".
So the little ol' student goes to college and finishes at the top of their class to only be in 10's of thousands of dollars worth of debt. Now you have to go out and work the full 30+ years just to get ahead.
For those who get lucky and get paying....may pay off their loans in 15 years....now it's our children's turn. now the extra money we have is going to our children's school loans, Then we retire poor then die.
Nasty system my friends. What system(s) do you have working in your favor? #LETSEMPOWEROURPEOPLE
