I was talking to a friend, and the subject fell on the financial crisis. I compared it to a worldwide spanking. Not a spanking that we wanted, but one we desperately needed.
I’ve spent too many years unaware of how my society works, just existing while not being a part of it. A bit of regret creeps onto me, and with no way to change what has happened, I just have to make amends, prevent myself from making the same mistakes and learn all I can about finance and the banking industry, and consumerism and the production industry.
I’m not the only one learning and I’m excited about the prospect of belonging to a society that slowly but increasingly becomes self aware. Gone are the days of being led like a cattle to slaughter.
