Tao # 75 / Slippery Slope

Ф

Taxing the poor and the middle classes,
hunger strikes the heart of the masses.
Wealthy rulers mix into the affairs
of the common man and prompt rebellion.

The ruling elites don't want to pay for defense
when they can place a price on your head.
Army wages are low, but you are helpless
hungry and starved for bread.

Thus it becomes easy to be a martyr
to be brave, to volunteer

when you have no hope
it's a slippery slope

But the person who is not afraid to die
is also a person who is unafraid of life

~~~
The Long Version

Taxing the poor and the middle classes,
hunger strikes the heart of the masses.
Corporate Welfare
and unwarranted subsidies.
crush the heart of society.

The working classes feel cheated
and say that life is not worth living
so they drill baby drill
till they can drill no more
yet the land is no longer giving

the trees are felled
turning life into hell
but companies keep clear cutting

and the bush bears no fruit
but the army swells with recruits
even while the protesters keep blogging

The ruling elites don't want to pay for defense
when they can place a price on your head.
Army wages are low, but you are helpless
hungry, poor and starved for bread.

Thus it becomes easy to be a martyr
to be brave, to volunteer
for the war waged by the president
with whom you thought
you could drink a beer

but the alcoholic
has learned long ago
that when you have no hope
it's a slippery slope

sliding down
down down

till you choke
on that vote

and begin to think its better to be stoic
than to place a value on it
but the person who is unafraid of death
is not afraid of living

  • Why do the wealthiest and happiest countries have the highest tax rates?
  • Why are people in Norway the happiest in the world?
  • Why is the person who is unafraid of death, unafraid of living?

True Spiritual Paths are personal adventures in deeper discovery. Most people are told what to believe and never question that they were told. In cultures dominated by weak faiths promoting the dominator model of living, traditions are reinforced by legal codes which may even be backed with the death penalty. Yet for the person who is strong and listens to the Divine within, a new journey begins regardless of the presence of oppression. These are the folks who have a New Thought. They begin to question and their questions lead to deeper answers. This is why New Thought is growing around the globe. In contrast to the dominator model of social organization, the partnership model is emerging or re-emerging as the superior social structure. Recent biological breakthroughs supported by economic analysis support these conclusions. Computers have enabled mathematical analysis of economic data demonstrating the importance of human rights in the face of economic abuses around the globe. Wisdom is the combination of intelligence with compassion. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights ensures the ability for all people to live to their full potential. Explore New Thought INFO.
