Eye opener for April 04, 2024: When the system is crazy, can we fully blame people for the crazy things they do?

If the system attacks farmers, as is the case across the Globe, can people be blamed for taking desperate measures to get food?

In a civilization that has basically indoctrinated its citizens into relying on centralized systems for their sustenance, freedom is an illusion. In such a system you are not free to grow your own food, because the seed needed to do so is patented by corporations like Monsanto. Your are not free to collect and purify your water, because centralized water treatment plants are required to provide drinking water. Few people know how to make their clothes, build their homes or even cook the food they're NOT allowed to grow. In essence l, the majority of that Society is reliant on a minority of that Society.

Now, in a Society that is structure in such a way as to appear to be a pyramid scheme, where will the masses turn when the resources needed for survival are denied to those who need them most? Initially, they will turn on one another, but that plan can't last long as they soon realize that they have nothing to take from one another. The acts committed at this time will still be considered illegal, immoral unjust as they will include choices that lead to manipulation, theft and murder.

In a civilized Society manipulation can be considered illegal, depending on the circumstances and outcomes while theft and murder are definitely considered offenses requiring incarceration or even Capitol punishment. While the States is justified in meting out such justice, is every instance of a crime as cut and dry as they may appear?

For instance, if the production of food is controlled by a shrinking minority that choices to inflated their prices or shrink their packaging without shrinking their prices, is that not an immoral act under certain circumstances? I know I've gone in and in about this but why did the cost of so many food items go up by 50, 60, 100, 200 percent when inflation never went over 10 percent?

Instead of Society looking at the desperate act of people stealing groceries as where the criminality begins, maybe we should follow the money up the proverbial food chain to those centralized entities providing the food that consumers can no longer produce on their own. And, maybe we should dig even deeper to determine what changes can be made to a system like Capitalism that requires the banks loaning money to those producing food to raise interest rates on those loans. What changed at the bank that requires such an increase? What physically changed in the day to day operations at the bank? Did they have to truck good bars around to balance the books? Not in an age when there is no GOLD standard.

Other than one group of rich people devaluing the money by printing trillions out of thin air, what caused the chain reaction that ends in a mother stealing groceries to feed her children? These are the crazy actions that I believe people cannot be held accountable for until the reasons behind such behaviors can be examines and addressed. Maybe the CEO of Kelloggs should be making millions while telling people to feed their families cereal for dinner. Maybe the CEO of Nestle should be forced to step down after saying other ideas that all people have a right to clean drinking water is radical. Maybe rights to such things should be considered based on the necessity for such things.

In America, maybe we should list our those unalienable rights as described in this nations founding documents. For starters, food, water, shelter, clothing and healthcare should all be listed as unalienable right when considering the pursuit LIFE, LIBERTY HAPPINESS.

With that said, maybe all of the obstacles that the growing inequality we see in America and the world should be considered the original sin in these Societies and the elites perpetrating the ultimate betrayal of hoarding resources like money, food,water, shelter,etc. should be deemed the original sinners, not some desperate parent.

And, taking this one step further, maybe the crazy things people do these days are merely reactions to the crazy things done to them these days. Don't get me wrong, people should be punished for egregious acts, but the system should be examines to determined from where such dark choices are made. Let's consider the possibility that the biggest drug dealers in America were the Sacklers who knowingly pushes drugs that led to an epidemic America continues to fight to this day. How did they only get fined a portion of the billions they made peddling drugs that cause as much harm as the crack that the Regan administration allegedly brought to American streets?

How could a crazy system as those we see in the world today produce anything other than a crazy population? It would be crazy to think that there could be any other outcome.

In 2018, I wrote a book highlighting the problems Humanity would face if more power, wealth, and control was funneled to a small group of elite individuals, groups, or organizations. In my book, I provided solutions (from myself and others) to the inevitable problems and also a means for the Public to analyze, compare, and contrast the words and deeds of those we choose to follow against reality. In my book Solutions: Enough complaining. Let's fix America.

In "Solutions...", I provide the means for readers to disseminate information as provided by their news sources of choice, their elected officials, and any other authority they choose to follow. The book also offers a means to hold their leaders up, not just to a higher standard than is currently accepted but to one that would improve their lives and the lives of those for whom they care.
