I woke up this morning to read an article about America's Housing Crisis. It's a problem. Living in Seattle, our once affordable city now caters to the upper echelon of the tech and corporate wage earners. Expensive living was for SFO, not SEA.
Well, that's changed, and so has our city and living situation. Now people are fleeing the city and moving to Bend and Bellingham. So what will that do to our small town America? These people are used to urban amenities so once quiet towns will become mini-cities and further push out the locals who lived a simple yet affordable life. I saw this while living in Walla Walla, WA where Seattle realtors bought out the real estate and rented shops for triple the price of their previous owner. The only people who could afford the retail rent were wealthy wine owners, or the burnt out NYC native who's dream was to open a winery. Quiet, peaceful, affordable, life was perfect for them, but not the locals.
And don't think Europe is a perfect place without any problems. The Western World is polluted with parasites, greed and bogus ideologies. Our systems are corrupt and plagued with darkness.
In my opinion, the Roman Empire is repeating itself and one day this corporate/greed empire will fall and fail. I am not against a free market society but anything in extremes leads to imbalance. And the driving down of wages and chronic increase of our basic needs - food, water, shelter - is going to lead us to a collapse or factions like you see in the Hunger Games.
The Age of Aquarius is here, and it will be a very long battle of the people versus the corporate empires.
1 Timothy 6:10 "For the love of money is the root of all evil; and while some have coveted after it, they have erred from the faith and pierced themselves through with many sorrows."
