Don’t worry, I won’t be talking about Titanic, however it may seems, that the economy looks like it, it is not. Plus the Titanic crash was the Captains fault, but when it comes to economy, markets, business conditions, society issues and peoples’ situation in general, the Capt. , as much as painful it is to say that for me, has not much to do with it.
The passenger them-self are the ones, who are sinking the ship !!
Let me explain..:
If your job is paying you $ 2,000.00/ month, you have no business to be buying $ 500,000.00 house .
When the banks are giving you a free money on credit and the media are encouraging you to spend it, it is your own fault, if you do so without knowing how to re-pay that. You are like a fish, jumping on a fat bait, just because at this moment, it looks like an easy, free lunch and you are too stupid or lazy ( in this case means the same), to cook your own.
If you imagine all of this above like a huge boat and us, the business owners, consumers, employers, employees, home buyers and home sellers, credit card users and credit card issuers..etc. like a passengers on the board of this huge boat, the boat will stay afloat as long as us, the passengers stay evenly spread over the top of the deck.
At the moment, when some naive idiot thinks that the other side of the boat, the one which he is not on, offers easier, better…blah,blah,blah , the”sheep” will follow . The balance gets broken and the boat starts leanning on a one side. Even the ones, who started the “mania” ( for instance banks giving credit to veryone, like there is no tomorrow a while ago), will get carried down with the crowd and pushed into water.
The ones who was misleading are sharing the missery with the ones, who they mislead right now and that is just fair, as long as some morons, who has the power to rescue the guilty, does not do so. You can’t expect an idiots to change, by bailing them out everytime they get in a mess.
The good news however is, that even while many people drowns, or just get their lazy, stupid fat ass wet, the boat never really sinks totally. There is always a few of us left, knowing that “collectivism” is the ultimate enemy of an individual.
Crowd mentality has a tendency to ultimately kill the crowd it-self. It is the purpose and duty of an individual who has the gift of ability to resist the peer pressure and thinks free regardless of the crowd opinions to make sure the boat get balanced again.
The best way to achieve this, is to occupy the places left by the “blind”, maintain them, make them pretty, to attract the survivors back on theirs spots.
If you understand what I am talking about here, then you are one of the few. I don’t need to tell you how to do it, maybe just reminder.: Do Not Forget to “stake out” your new teritories and make up a Price for each piece, because we can’t be giving it back for free, for simple reason…:
The Boat would get too quick of the balance again.
Don’t worry about the drown dead bodies, you can’t polute the beauty you had created, make a place for those still swimming and the ones, willing to learn how to swim.
At the moment the boat gets afloat again and you had sold all of the “vacant” places, look over the whole deck and find your new spot to stay on, because while temporarily off duty & purpose, it will come back again…
The crowd has No memory and never learns..
History always repeat it-self, sooner or later and “uncle” BEN can’t do damn thing about it !!!
