As I see it

As I see it, the largest commodity and stock to bet on, is ignorance. We all heard the saying ďignorance is blissĒ; I just wish it were on the stock market. Iíd sell everything I own and invest in it. Iím sure it would go through the roof! Heck, it would probably split 4 for 1 in the first month. People just donít think anymore for themselves. We live in a world where we are bombarded by advertisements, television, rumor control, and probably worst of all people we perceive as being well educated (educated derelicts) who spread there ignorant virus throughout the land. We follow the masses without question and go on with our robotic lives. People believe what they hear, read, and see with little or no actual facts to back them up. Letís face it, peopleís perceptions are their reality. Itís just the way it is (it doesnít have to be) and the corporate giants know this. Thatís why they spend billions of dollars trying to change our perceptions. Take your name brand sneakers for example, the majority of them are made in sweat shops in the hills of China, by underpaid children who are exploited by corporate giants, government, and worst of all (not knowingly I want to believe) their families. The sneakers are probably made for around $0.75 (a little on the high side Iím sure), but hey! These are the new high tech state of the art sneakers, which I read about. Theyíll make me run faster and jump higher. I just have to have them even though they will cost me one monthís car payment. Letís face it, a sneakerís a sneaker when you get down to it. Iím still not able to out run Carl Lewis even if he has combat boots on and I have the latest and greatest from ďHuman Rights Violations R UsĒ. This is how I see it.
