A Piece of Something

When a civilisation allows government to regulate business
And promotes social-labour movements through unions
It’s inevitable that the result will be a destruction of free enterprise
And continuous manipulation of wages and prices

And as management and workers go head-to-head
With little thought given to the true cause of their problem
Caused by the very providers of ‘capital’
Who force management to raise prices when they raise the cost of said ‘capital’
Which leads workers to demand higher wages
Creating a never-ending battle between workers and their managers

All the while the real receivers of profits
Never for a day have to perform laborious or repetitive managerial tasks
As long as they keep providing ‘capital’ at no cost whatsoever
Since they extend nothing but book credit in the form of fiat money which the masses then expect to propel economies
But actually ends up bringing industries, workers and managers into indebtedness to the ‘capital’ providers
Debts that can never be settled

Such is the world we live in
Where much of the wealth is created from nothing
All because we all want a piece of something

Such are the values we subscribe to
Such is the money we believe in
Such is the foundation upon which we’ve built our perceived prosperity

Now imagine if management could create real capital
Through legitimate supply which fulfils beneficial demand
Wouldn’t that grow industry and subsequently genuine capital?
Wouldn’t workers be appeased by the constant prices of products?
Wouldn’t that eliminate the need for interventions that focus on the problems and not the causes?
Wouldn’t that be a win-win for industry, workers and managers?
Wouldn’t that end the reign of those who benefit most for creating only the illusion of value?
Wouldn’t that end the era of corrupt capital?
