I find it interesting, we are currently having people being arrested in New York and Boston for getting in the way of traffic in the “Occupy Wall Street” or what is also being called the “Days of Rage”.
I look at this with great interest because I have never seen this work out in anyone’s favor in the long run.
I find it interesting because it is an attempt to turn over a system that works quite well for those who want to work with in the system. But for those that feel that they should just get things…. BECAUSE, I have never understood that type of thinking and I probably, never will.
Whenever you try to cause others to change, you end up finding yourself very disappointed, especially if you hang your happiness on the other person changing.
Unions do it, political activists do it, groups like Code Pink do it.
I just don’t get it…
What do you deserve?
What do I deserve?
What does anyone deserve?
To address this, let’s start with the definition of deserve.
The Merriam-Webster says “to be worthy of”.
The origin of the word comes the Latin word, deservire, which means “to serve”.
In what way are the people at these rallies, doing to serve others. And is anyone willing to pay for the service that they are providing. It seems to me like all they are doing is causing unnecessary chaos.
The unions have demanded higher wages for the employees in the union, but how are these companies doing now? It seems to me that GM and Chrysler has had to get bailouts from the government to stay in business. It doesn’t seem to me to have been the right move.
Not only do they negotiate the wages their members receive, they also limit what their members can receive. It appears the only people who benefit from any of this are the union leadership, who will sell their members down the river when it suits them.
It is also apparent to me that a lot of the union jobs have been shipped south of the border and overseas. I am not quite sure how that demanding philosophy has helped anyone.
We have college students at these rallies who do not think that they should have to pay their student loans back. And they seem to be blaming the banks, why are they not protesting the colleges for the outrageous fees that they are demanding of the students?
The Philosophy of DEMAND has never worked and it never will.
God has put together a system that works for anyone who wants to work the system.
It’s called sowing and reaping and it has worked since the beginning of time and will work for as long as this planet is in existence.
What are these groups sowing?
I would be curious to hear your opinion.
