Why does the average person comply with the directions of the government imposed “education system” and insist on working as a heavily taxed employee, never able to rise above a mediocre, financially strapped survival instead of creating real wealth by owning his own business? Why do older citizens waste their life savings on college degrees for their offspring, most of whom will end up waiting tables in restaurants owned by those with little or no formal education? Why do we follow the Pied Piper of the financial enslavement?

Why does the average person eagerly label any kind of affiliate program or Network Marketing system, and virtually any other income producing an independence-enhancing system as a “Pyramid Scheme,” when all companies that they seek to be employed in are essentially pyramid schemes themselves? Think about it: In descending order: CEO, President, Vice President, Middle Management, Team Leaders and Supervisors, then hard working employees at the bottom, with virtually no chance of becoming the President or CEO.

In your own business, in your own independent position in any kind of affiliate, Network Marketing, or independence-enhancing business opportunity, you start off at the top of your own structure. Yet most people reject this outright. Why? Why choose a financial prison over real freedom? Two reasons:

Normalcy Bias  This is a mental state people enter when facing impending doom and disaster, be in financial or anything else. It causes us to underestimate and deny the possibility of disaster and its effects because we have a bias towards what we deem to be normal. we project current conditions into the future. So even though we realize we will face bankruptcy, poverty, an old age of want and dependency, and a total loss of freedom of we continue on in the way we’re going, we reject all offers of business opportunities of any kind.

Cognitive Dissonance Festinger’s (1957) cognitive dissonance theory suggests that we have an inner drive to hold all our attitudes and beliefs in harmony and avoid disharmony (or dissonance). According to Festinger, we hold many cognitions about the world and ourselves; when they clash, a discrepancy is evoked, resulting in a state of tension known as cognitive dissonance. As the experience of dissonance is unpleasant, we are motivated to reduce or eliminate it, and achieve consonance (i.e. agreement).

The key to wealth is to break free from the restraints of the mentality of those who think like employees and prisoners and to associate with those who enjoy real freedom, wealth, and a passion for their work. We become like those with whom we spend the most time, we absorb their philosophies and world views, we learn how to create liberty and flexibility. We understand that, in order to get rich, we need to create unique, valuable, and affordable products and services for others. This is not the cancerous Altruism that we are hobbled with by some religions.

You can only learn how to think correctly from those who think correctly, not from those who are programmed and paid to enslave your mind and your pocketbook. Decisions are destiny.

The original title I gave this article was,”Why People Succumb to Propaganda and Follow the Masses, Denying Reality,” referring to the Pied Piper of Cultural Marxism, incorporating the route to a low IQ, genderless, brainwashed society of perverted, cultureless, drugged people without families and the ability to reason. As someone said, the collective only votes for the night manager/ prime minister/president at a MacDonalds, who must obey the owners’ and controllers’ – the satanic bankers and elitists’ – orders.
