The 20th century didn’t end on December 31, 1999 at midnight, but at 9/11.
9/11 put an end to that century because the 20th century was the “American century”. The century when the USA took the leadership of the world over England and expended its economic, cultural and military domination across the world.
It was the first direct attack on the American soil, that introduced the “Era of Terror” we are still living in, with massive surveillance, loss of liberties, intensive propaganda and the rise of populism.
Although America is younger than most country of the old continent, 9/11 was like the loss of a father-like figure in the western world. In a sort of twisted desire to live under a patriarchy, the US were like the loving father that would protect us all. It’s a fiction, and obviously it is gone now because the rich found out that it is more profitable for them to kept the people in fear instead of offering them protection. True protection.
The second major event of the-now, 21th was the 2008 economic crisis.
People of my generation were all old enough to realize what was happening.
I therefore thought that there would be a massive wave of entrepreneurs of my age. Instead of that in ’10s most entrepreneurs were in their 50’s.
But after a while I noticed two big flaws in entrepreneurs.
1) Most entrepreneurial ventures, when massively successful get bought by corporations.
Doesn’t it simply defeat the purpose. BUT I can understand, a big check and you say goodbye my homeland and hello Hawaii. Or you think you’ve worked enough, or, as it is often the case the company becomes just too big. And I respect that, it is just sad to see the soul of clever companies taken away by brainless multinationals.
The second flaw is a sin that no one can justify
2) Almost no entrepreneur change the system and the relationship boss-employees.
Most entrepreneur story starts with the romantic elements: “that was my passion”, “that was my dream” and very often “I realized I was a bad employee and therefore I needed to be my own boss”
And now you’re the boss, what does it change for you employees? Nothing.
You hypocrites you’ve become exactly what you were fleeing from.
The whole employment paradigm hasn’t shifted a bit. You still have employees, managers, bosses, minimum salaries, capped salaries,income inequalities?
So you’re giving big speeches, but what has changed?
People would dare to ask me “what can be changed?” Well let’s start with the whole relationship, you’re the boss, you, and you can do whatever in your business, then why not calling your “employees” employees no longer but partners instead? Because they are actually your partners.
Rich people have always opened they big drooling mouth full of worms without realizing the obvious fact that, if nobody works, they don’t make make any money.
So yes, they are your partners. Then let’s talk about salaries, the bonuses, maybe they’d get percentage instead of a monthly pay sheet etc
They are millions ways to change things, but one way to start doing it, that is, starting doing it.
But you hypocrites, you whitewashed tombs, what you want more than anything isn’t success, but moving up the hierarchy.
That is why for many getting from employee to successful entrepreneur was not a liberation or a fulfillment, but merely a change of class.
The lower classes have a pathological need to go up the hierarchy of classes, without understanding that: a class isn’t only the money you make, (or steal, I’m talking for the so-called elite of human dejections) but
a whole mindset, a vision of the world, a whole indoctrination that start from childhood.
No matter your earnings now, unless you renounce your humanity, you will never be part of the elite. You can’t just be rich, you have to be an utmost nefarious piece of crud, and be rich to be part of the elite.
Meditate on it,
Love for the Poor, disdain for the rich
