People complain about big business and unfair treatment all the time. You hear them going on about it at work and at school and on the news. But we're the people right? Aren't we in control of America? We treat Europe and the rest of the world as if we invented Democracy. But do any of us even know how our democracy works? Are any of us citizens in the Greek sense?
No, we're sheep. We sit each day and abstain from knowledge; we neglect to actually care about each others causes. We sit and get fat on the poisons that big business sends us in little plastic bags. Until we can rise up and inform ourselves we will continue to be at the mercy of American Aristocracy.
Businesses run on a simple form of evolution. The ones that survive continue to control the market; the ones that don't survive, don't. So if you can rip people off and make more money doing it then that's what the market will look like. Eventually the American people through their inaction may select for themselves a communist coalition of businesses that - through lobbyists - are the real citizens of America. But until people accept the real power that each of us has in a Democracy we will continue not to be one.
Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour.
