55 Flash Fiction - Tim & Sal #12

"The poor economic conditions are estimated for most of next year," Tim said.

"Fear lingers until people realize that fear is the problem," stated Sal.

"Could it be more than just that?"

"Yes, it could be the result of greed. It might be that the enslaved are being harvested of all they have worked for."

Not only the deception, but there would also be a justification.

They would call it 'Collateral Damage'.

In our country, the politicians wait for a natural disaster to occur, so they can dig into the public funds & fill their coffers. The help never reaches the needy, although on paper it does...

Ways of is a dirty game that thrives on human blood...

"Might be"? You're much more charitable than I am I think. For as long as there have been "Haves" and "Have Nots" it has been this way. And so it will remain until some cataclysmic event forces us as a species to change it.

Call it what they will, its still taking something that someone else worked for. What do they call that? I call it stealing.
I think they skip calling it "Collateral Damage" and just call it theirs.
As for politicians here, why wait for a natural disaster, ours just start wars and take what they want.

Is it? I think there are plenty of middle class class citizens suffering right now. Thanks.

Not all of us are brainwashed, but many are willing to ignore the facts and live status quo. I can relate to your growing up poor and still struggling, but I do feel like things changed. I'd never before seen such apathy for the citizens of the US from a Prez and our government, much less a fleecing like is going on now.

Sal (like me (heck, I am Sal (and Tim for that matter)))is understating things. I don't think it will take a cataclysmic event to change things, but I do think it will take some evolution, some thinking and a cultural revolution.

By cultural revolution, I mean a change in our culture where people care enough to pay attention and (OMG!) vote every chance they get.

Well wars or sporadic acts of terrorism , its the same I guess. our politicians don't need wars because they can orchestrate bomb blasts & get enough killed & steal from the aid funds. It is easier this way I guess...without getting another nation involved, in which there is a chance of them getting killed too.

Besides, it 'controls' their population levels too.
