In a few weeks time I will be moving stores in my job to a brand new refitted store which is a very exciting prospect as it will mean I will have a new and busier environment to work in but as always there is a but in my case.
This excitement is muted as the store and company are part of a system called Western Capitalism which I am starting lose faith in or to be more exact the store will be a visible representation of the said system.
There will always be that nagging thought that the store is part of a system which is currently is self-serving which put profits and wealth before people and basic humanity. A system whose governments are subjugating the poor, disabled and ill so their rich paymasters can hoard more money and live more opulent life styles at the expense of the masses.
Each year I work within this system it is getting harder and harder to justify why I should support it by working for it. Even the basic need to pay the bills, pay for food and pay for things just to have a social life and be part of a community as justification to keep going is starting to ware thin.
It may be I am finally growing a social conscience or I am finally starting to become a real human being but it does in the end dull the excitement of the new store opening as it is in a background of growing inhumanity of humans against humans which makes me very sad in the end.
