Employers Have an Interest in Stopping Price Gouging
Employers Have an Interest in Stopping Price Gouging.
Artificially high housing costs, among other expenses, weigh heavily on minimum-wage hikes. Food and housing, including utilities, transportation, education, and leisure expenses should be affordable to a wage of a dollar a day for an eight-hour day from nine to 5 p.m. (the period of maximum productivity of both labor and management).
The reason why this has changed is because the people involved with inflationary causes are unethical. People always wormed their way in who are afflicted with a criminal mentality. Constantly raising prices causes ultimate poverty because it cripples the concourse of business when everyone has to constantly either do price changes or account for higher prices in budgeting. There are better ways of making a profit than raising the prices. But you see, giving in to a criminal mentality is really being incompetent. Many anthropologists now believe there might not have been Cro-Magnons; that it may have been a hoax. But there really are: the Cro-Magnon humans are the contemporary price-gougers destined for extinction.
This was the problem with that illusion known as mid 20th century Communism. It was no more Communism than the man in the moon. Or the moon and the loon. Their problem really was that they were wide open to criminals. The same as the Germans were when Hitler took over. People point to Nazi-ism and Communism and say, "see those are false ideologies they don't work". Well they may be false ideologies, they may even be idiotologies, but they still were not examples of what those ideals were supposed to be, because they were very quickly infiltrated. Not by organizations but by criminals. This is going on in lots of countries today where the greatest criminals rob national treasures because they have wormed their way into positions of leadership.
That really has been the saving grace of the United States, not that they're all that good at it, but they have been able to deal somewhat with criminality, at least to a certain degree -- probably the third-degree. Or maybe a bachelor's degree. By the way, do you realize that Hitler, Stalin and maybe even Hussein were actually innocent of the atrocities they had committed? Yes, although it probably wouldn't stand up in court, each was not guilty on the grounds of insanity. In fact, there may be evidence that they were targeted and became victims of induced insanity.
In an odd twist of fate, the ones really guilty for all those atrocities, not to mention the deaths of many and many millions upon millions of people, were the ones who had actually driven those men insane: signatories of the Versailles treaty, the czars, English and French colonialists, oil men, and on and on and on.
Now why the heck do you think everybody would jump on the bandwagon of a lunatic? Because they were easily manipulated. That may be why those men rose to power in the first place. Every marionette has it's puppeteer. Look in history. Notice the inordinate tendency for the insane to ascend to high office. Maybe Julius Cesar was assassinated because he wasn't insane.
No, the reason why these idiotologies failed was because, and it is partially coined in an old adage: "Crime does not pay". It reminds me of the joke about the bald criminal who did not take his wig to the store; he figured that without his wig he wouldn't have toupee. The problem is that the criminal never realizes that he or she will have hell toupee. All kidding aside, this is a very serious reality here, one that people hardly ever realize. After all, they love their heroes, the criminals.
Crime feeds upon itself. It is the root cause of the failure of every civilization in history. And they all have failed royally. The success of any endeavor depends on its functionality. And dishonesty, despite it's popularity and even in the face of those who admire it, is dysfunctional. How could it be anything but dysfunctional? It depends on illusion, misinformation, inaccuracy, conspiracy to defraud, and on and on and on. Everything, and I don't mean just about everything, but everything that embodies the very essence of dysfunctionality.
So it is the perfect marriage from hell: The lunatic and the criminals. And the world is full of loonies from the boonies. Ripe the for the picking. Just think of it. There's another ideology right around the corner just waiting to roll over the face the planet, exacting treasure, booty, prima and taxes from every nook and cranny. Collecting from and cashing in on every walking around scratching human being on the face of the Earth. And that means you, Bunkie. You're next. So get over it. Hold those truths to be self-evident. There goes freedom, liberty and everything else. That didn't take much.
Not that you're responsible for that; there probably isn't anything you, as an individual, can do. However, those who manage and own big business concerns may have an interest in trying to do something to affect a change in the status of the affordability and availability of necessities to their workers. After all , everybody has been so preoccupied with the insolvability of the inevitability of rising minimum wage standards. Instead of trying to deal with the real problem. They throw up their hands in disgust and give up. Well, look on the bright side: At least they throw up their hands in disgust instead of the cannibal who threw up everybody else's hands. That must be some handyman.
But the very solution to their problem may be holding them back because the solution has a bit of a socialistic flavor to it. Making means and necessity available and affordable to the average worker. But don't worry. I'm not advocating you rebuild the Berlin Wall. Ich been ein Frankfurt junger, nicht ein Berliner. I am advocating all of that for everyone. Not just workers. But also the intellects that might be able to solve some of your problems eventually, who are also dying of poverty, or at least wasting all their time as the only ones clever enough to subsist on the minimum wage. While all the ultra rich distract themselves fighting off the incessant invasions of the criminal mentality that actually every human being is subject to.
Some say that that's is the law of the jungle. Well maybe. But that would be the law of the traumatized jungle. A normal jungle without the myriad of criminals with their upfront lunatics for puppets, would be a paradise of plants, animals and people. People acting responsibly, taking care of their environment and taking care of each other. But that would be a different law for a different jungle until the criminals use their puppets to turn those jungles and everywhere else wild into national parks that no one would be allowed to live in.
