The phenomenon of bullshit jobs

Postby Cornfed » Tue Aug 27, 2013 10:38 pm

Interesting article pointing out the obvious - that most "jobs" in the West are now a joke.

It's funny how having a job is considered "doing something with your life," but in most cases it's the antithesis of that.

An interesting cultural difference I have noticed between the US and UK is that most people doing bullshit jobs in the UK acknowledge that their jobs are bullshit. (Several I talked to expressed their desire to quit and become massage therapists, for some reason. Strange.) Americans seem to be so wedded to the system that they think any bullshit jobs they are doing must be critical to the Universe on the basis that they are handed money to do them. If they were paid to microwave kittens then they would have no self-image other than that of a hard-working productive member of society pulling a wagonload of freeloaders behind them and would imagine that essential items such as food, shelter, clothing etc. were magically puffed into existence with every nth kitten microwaved.

FDR asked the American people if we wanted the state to create jobs just for the hell of it and Daa herd said YAA! We got what we asked for, you have to understand the people running this socialist con job just want to insert bodies out there to be debt slaves because the more debt they can collect interest on the quicker they can buy the world up and finish putting a corporate veil up between them and the masses world wide and run the one world dictatorship.

Don't kid yourself this has been mathematically planned by the credit monopoly and the plan is called globalization. The ECO system does not like it and is probably going to cut most of us down shortly, you have to live in your local eco system for the most part and they have found dragging all these invasive species around the world has really screwed the eco system up bad and is quickening the 6th mass extinction.

America should have collapsed long ago because it is unproductive but the social engineers are back there saying "see we took a completely wild west country of private property and turned it into a socialist country and Daa herd never even figured out it happened". This is truly what is going on , America is being held aloft by this socially engineered cluster Fu CK just like England and the planet is saying I do not like what you are doing to me with this experiment and it's dying because of it.

Most Scientist in the know are predicting a 80 to 90 % die off of humanity coming up and they predict it will take anywhere from 5 to 15 million years for the planet to rebound with as rich of biodiversity of life that it had before the ape tore it up.

This unproductive job society was planned by the credit monopoly and we signed on for it and in the process cut our own throats, you can just look at the population spike when we hit the industrial revolution fueled by cheap oil and coal and nobody was paying attention to what it really meant.

Scientist have been warning us for decades and nobody seems to be making the right moves in the right directions fast enough. I don't want to be negative but the wisest thing to do is do not bring children here, I believe we have completely screwed them bad.

You can blame Keynsianism and too much credit. Keynsianism for obvious reasons, and for too much credit due to the need for otherwise undefendible companies (ie not having a profit with the tech companies or no income to pay).

True, it's like a new form of off-the-books government spending. Pension funds etc tapped to fuel companies (Amazon, facebook, etc) that serve their purposes.

There is nothing new about it, they want you to believe it's new. They have unlimited funds via counterfeiting and do not want the masses to understand this. What they are doing by taking the pension funds is getting rid of a stable middle class so nobody can challenge their rule. They do not have to touch any of the retirement accounts. The FED can just print the money and does.

It's all about wealth transfer to the state via an accounting gimmick, slickest con ever, the world has never seen anything like this.

What I THINK the Zacster is referring to is the way that the Fed prints money, loans it at zero interest to banksters, then they channel it into Wall Street, where they fund fast-growing companies like Facebook, Google, etc.

Some companies (e.g. Amazon) have never shown a profit, but fresh capital keeps getting shoveled in to keep them afloat. Wouldn't that be a nice way to grow a business? Yes it has to be the right opportunity, but it's also political favoritism.

These companies don't win through fair competition. They are anointed in advance, then funded without limit so they can win by outspending.

I know from watching business news that there is some truth to this... I don't know if it's just a few companies or is widespread.

Thanks for the clarification. I sort of got that part, though I didn't know about the pre-anointed businesses. But Keynesianism didn't involve stimulating the economy by the Fed feeding its bankster cronies; rather by spending money directly into the real economy through fiscal policy, putting spending money into the pockets of working people. It is, to say the least, not self-evident that a policy designed to create jobs is the chief culprit in eliminating them, though shills for the financial sector (including inadvertent ones) try to make the argument.

Good point.

What Bull Chit, look you Fn Commies!. FDR was sent in to administer the bankruptcy for and to the FED. Their policies have created a situation to where a house that was 15,500 $ in 1970 now cost 315,000 on average in 2007 before the economy crashed. That is the total debasement of the working classes ability to save and put away the fruits of their labor for retirement due to unchecked counterfeiting.

These guy's have literally stolen the world through an exclusive credit monopoly 5th plank in the communist manifesto.

The whole system is artificially propped up by this con and you are witnessing why the Commie state always fails because the non producer class wants most of the purchasing tickets in order to lay claim over the economy with out adding anything of value to it and even more like adds total crap to your civilization like the police state you are seeing being built up around you world wide so they can remain in charge as they rob the rest of us.

THOSE DAM COMMIES! :shock:
