Admittedly it’s taken me 63+ years, but after readingĀ James Altucher’s latest blog post, I’ve become enlightened.

Everything we’ve ever been taught, or told, our entire belief system, has been designed with one thing in mind, and that is to control our every action. It used to be religion was the only control mechanism (at least so I thought), but now that isn’t enough. It’s gone way beyond that.

From the idea of home ownership and raising a family, to the necessity of getting an education. Even the design of our health care system has all been designed for one purpose, and that is to change the way we think, and inevitably control our very being and every action.

It was L Ron Hubbard who said,

If you really want to enslave people, tell them you are going to give them total freedom

Think about it. Why is so much emphasize placed on the notion of getting a job, buying a home [with a big mortgage], raising a family, and building roots in a community? It’s simple, because once we do, “they” have us by the balls, so to speak. We’re no longer free to pursue the so called “American Dream”. We’re inextricably coupled to our homes and families. We can’t move, because we’ve literally established roots.

Even our health care system has been designed with that same purpose in mind. To control us!

I’ve often wondered why businesses don’t object to being burdened with the responsibility of insuring the health care of their employees, rather than having that responsibility dumped on the government. It certainly would increase profits. Or would it?

By tying health care to employment, employers have made it more difficult for employees to strike out on their own and compete [to pursue that "American Dream"], or even change jobs, because obtaining health insurance is either too expensive, or simply unobtainable for many due to pre-existing or chronic health problems. The current system allows employers to have greater control and influence over their employees, and artificially keeping wages down, by creating an immobile work force.

It’s a conspiracy on a grand scale, and the American public has fallen for it, hook, line and sinker.
