Society? Something that we all live in. However, take a closer look at yourself and the people around you. Notice anything? We all make up one big pyramid scheme. Okay, now hear me out, a pyramid scheme funnels money up a chain of command and constantly needs growth and new members to sustain itself. What else does? Society.
Crack open your art-sci roommate’s civics textbook, and look at the hierarchy in Canada. The Queen is at the top. Now she has recruited underlings such as our boy Justin and all his little senators. She likely told them all that they’re going to be self employed heads of their own business, and that they have to recruit members of their party to get in on it. They’re probably the lucky ones, making a profit after the ridiculous buy in fees. Ever wonder how the Royal family literally owns England? Money from their Canadian pyramid plot. The government and Queen just take all of our hard earned money and funnel it into their silly scandals and cringe ‘public services’. Not cool.
Still not convinced that society is a pyramid scheme? Consider the economies of pyramids and society. A pyramid scheme creates an illusion of profit by constantly recruiting new investors. Society constantly has new investors born, so think about that one. Boss babes and boss babies are born into this society every day, ready to invest in our pyramid scheme of a society. The illusion of profits is easy too. Governments spending themselves into trillions in debt? Check. Banks loaning money they don’t have? Check. Need any more hard facts. Society is a triangle.
Now all pyramid schemes have some pretty ridiculous buy in fees, and we are all familiar with both rent and taxes. Not everyone can afford to throw money at their family through ‘charity contributions’ like Justin can, and some of us are still stuck paying bank fees, rent, and taxes just to be a part of this pyramid schemciety, never reaping the rewards of our personal, startup, self owned business. How can we really live in an enlightened society if every one of us but the 99% is still paying buy in fees just for existing? How long can we let these unregulated triangular leeches take our money and give it to other people’s education, healthcare, and wellbeing? So much for being a self owned business…
Okay so we know our pyramid scheme is faulty, paying for silly things and whatnot, but what about a well planned, free market pyramid scheme? Yes, a free market pyramid scheme is the perfect system. Some may have concerns about free market pyramid schemes but you seem to have forgotten to consider some big points – innovation, competition, iphone, venezuela, eastern europe. Now that we’ve thoroughly debunked the anti free market sheep, we can really get into theory. The real problem with our pyramid scheme is too much involvement from the upper echelons, the platinum tier of our triangular society. If they simply stopped meddling in our problems by giving our hard earned money to children and old people, maybe our self owned businesses would thrive a bit more.
Now that you’re convinced of the ins and outs of the pyramid scheme that we live in, I’ll be off to recruit some new members. I guess it’s time to procreate. See ya nerds.
