Anti Wage-Slavery Pro-Freedom Quotations Of The Week 1138-1140

Grown-up people reconcile themselves too willingly to a supposed duty of preparing young ones for the time when they will regard as illusion what now is an inspiration to heart and mind. Deeper experience of life, however, advises their inexperience differently. It exhorts them to hold fast, their whole life through, to the thoughts which inspire them. It is through the idealism of youth that man [sic] catches sight of truth, and in that idealism he possesses a wealth which he must never exchange for anything else. 
Albert Schweitzer,
Memories of Childhood and Youth, 1955

The first experience you will encounter is the “triggering event.” This is the first time the bully does something to target you. The event itself seems quite ordinary and often isn’t an obvious catalyst for the escalation that follows.

The tendency is to brush it off as “he’s [sic] just having a bad day.” Everyone has bad days from time to time, where they become stressed and snappy.

However, this behavior repeats. You get reprimanded and insulted, you’re given an unreasonable workload, you miss out on rewards and you get that creepy feeling that the bully is talking about you behind your back — and on it goes.

Now you are dreading going to work. Every time you see the bully, you break out into a cold sweat. You can’t concentrate on your work. You lie awake at night. It takes over your every waking thought. You panic and you feel really low.

Suddenly you get more headaches, backaches, colds and stomachaches. You become preoccupied and withdrawn at home and your important relationships suffer. You lose your appetite.

The number of PhD recipients on food stamps and other forms of welfare more than tripled between 2006 and 2012 to 94,700, according to an Urban Institute analysis. The number of master's degree holders on food stamps and other forms of welfare nearly tripled during that same time period to 482,000, according to the same analysis.
The boost in PhD recipients receiving food stamps is just the latest indication of decades of Oversupply of college graduates in this nation.

  • Jack, can you expand more on the homeless Jesus art piece? Are you saying that Jesus would be homeless in today's economic environment? I'm not sure how to interpret it.

  • Hi Gary:

    I think Matthew 25: 31-46, King James Version, should explain it.
