It would seem that after working for nearly a decade, I still have nothing to show for it.
I learned during this time working that the North American lifestyle is set up to create indentured slaves. I came to this conclusion after my hours were cut and the only thing that i could afford was my transportation to and from my place of employment.
I wasn’t making much money but I got myself the nicest car that I could afford, the next five years were spent paying for it. It was shortly after the loan was fully paid off that I had a craving for more.
My cravings led me to find true love in the form of a BMW 650 GS Motorcycle. It is beautiful and fun and I bought it brand new. The last five years of my life have been spent paying for something that I only use for half of the year.
A decade of paying for transportation to and from work might not seem like indentured slavery, but there are so many other ways to fall into the trap, that I just felt that I had to share some of my observations with the internet.
The main trap of modern slavery is wanting more. A bigger house, flashier car, designer clothes, and expensive meals will only lead you to a place that most of the world had found themselves; in debt.
There is a way out of modern slavery, but it is going to take quite a lot of effort and the more people that achieve this, the better off the world will be. All you need to do is to just WANT LESS. It seems like a simple concept because it is. Old jeans and a t shirt may not appeal to you, but what if I told you that you won’t need to spend countless hours doing something that you hate in order to afford them.
Eventually, wanting less will lead you to a freedom that very few people on this planet have ever achieved.
