Or should I say, how (and why) the West was outsourced.
They say ignorance is a bliss. I start to feel that this statement is really true as it projects a peaceful life with no worries and annoyances. (watch the video at the end).
The more you know and the more aware you become the harder it is to digest what is happening in our society.
I often shake my head and wish I would be ignorant just like the majority of people are.
On the other hand, I think we need people who are forward thinkers, question decisions and hold those accountable who use and abuse whatever and whoever they can. Unfortunately there aren’t many of these types around.
The West is being sold (or rather outsourced) right now, under our nose and we so far said nothing. We are too busy to entertain ourselves with HD TVs, iPhones, chat on Twitter and Facebook. And all the while CEOs and high level executives are stuffing their pockets and their bank accounts with money by laying off Canadians and outsourcing the business to a poor country where they can get away with paying next to nothing to people who speak a little English.
So this is, my friend, how the West was sold aka. outsourced. And by the time we realize it, it will be too late. Most of us have lost their jobs and will struggle to survive. Kiss good bye to your HD TV. But here is the good news … Philippines, India or whatever developing country we have outsourced the work will be strong enough now economically. So they will hire you to work for them if you speak their language. So better start learning.
Just for the record, I am not against sharing our business knowledge or economic wealth with poorer countries. We should help them and educate them so they can build a society that is intelligent, respectful and their highest goal is to provide everyone with the basics to live a healthy and happy life.
I am against greedy corporations, companies who lay off employees in this country so they can take that job outside while stuffing their pockets. That is criminal. And it happens because many of us say nothing. And that is also criminal.
