Throughout human history, most “slavery” has been enforced physically — with whips and chains. You either did what you were told, or they beat you into submission.
“Slavery” is alive and well on our planet, and its shackles are made of numbers, not steel. Those who are enslaved under this new system are people who fail to understand simple math: numbers, compounding interest, loans, investments and so on. You show me a person who can’t do math, and I’ll show you someone who functions as a slave to the system.
This article shows you how to escape mathematical “slavery” and live as a free person. But first, you need to understand how mathematical slavery really works.
There’s a good reason why people who earn incomes reported on IRS W-2 forms are often called “wage slaves.” It’s not a derogatory term; it’s more of a cry for help. “Help! I’m a slave to my paycheck, and I can’t get ahead!”
There’s a reason you can’t get ahead: the banks and the government have fine-tuned your “payments” to them (taxes, loans, fees, etc.) in order to extract the maximum amount from your paycheck while leaving you so little of your own that you can never get ahead enough to stop working.
Your car payment and house payment, for example, are precisely calculated to make sure you can’t pay either of them off ahead of schedule. They’re mathematically selected to guarantee you can only “squeak by” and barely pay more than the monthly interest, thereby extending your loan principles into the far distant future.
Wage slaves genuinely believe that the parts of their paycheck “withheld” by the government are needed to run the government. This delusion has been hammered into their heads for so long that they simply cannot come to grips with the reality: the government can create all the money it needs to fund itself. It does not need to take it from taxpayers.
Mathematically impaired individuals really get “taken to the bank” when it comes to home loans. Through the entire process of getting loan pre-approval, making an offer on a house, having the offer accepted and then closing the home to make it “yours,” these people are getting royally screwed up one side and down the other.
For starters, they do not understand that they are paying (a loan origination fee) for the “right” to pay a bank over 200% more than their house actually cost.
Insurance is where mathematically impaired individuals really pay the price. Most of the profits in the insurance industry come from people who make terrible decisions about what level of deductibles to apply to their insurance policies.
The way this works is that the lower your deductible, the more you’re getting ripped off. On auto insurance, any deductible under $2500 is a waste of money. Agents “sell” it to mathematically impaired individuals by saying, “You should buy a deductible of just $250, that way if something happens, the maximum you’ll have to pay out of pocket will be $250.”
You really need to read this article in its entirety. I really wonder just how many people don’t even realize that this scenario is actually happening. You will then understand why they call it, modern day “Slavery.” Click the link below to read article.
