Living to Work

I found this shocking article about the treatment of factory workers in China making computer parts, read it here.


Right when I was reading it, I started to ask a few questions:

  • Is our world coming to the point where all we do is work longer hours, less pay, less vacations, less benefits just to pay the bills and stay afloat?
  • If North Americans knew the treatment of these workers in China, would we buy so many products made from China, would we demand better treatment, better pay?
  • Could this system be used in the future for the entire world?

Before I get into this further, watch this short video about human enslavement.

While I was blogging about money on my previous blog, I came to a simple conclusion. We have become a desire nation, who have not satisfied our basic human needs. Those needs are food, shelter and water not brand name clothing, luxury car or the latest gadget. I kept wondering, why everything we buy has turned into a desire, a want; not a basic need.

Is this a way to manipulate people by tapping into their sub conscious mind? That may be true, watch this documentary that discusses the history of advertising. As a consequence, if a disaster were to strike, not only do we not have our basic needs, we have no skills and knowledge because we have been accustomed to rely on others to provide service for us.

    Great post! You bring up a lot of good points. It's hard for individuals to fight back and speak out about all the bad things that are happening in this country when the only thing you have time to do is work and sleep. Maybe that's why Americans have become so apathetic over the last several years.

      It is a sad state of things when we have excessive work required for minimal gain.
