In America there are many divisions and distractions. While you’re at each others throats and on your electronic devices, Corporations are making huge amounts of profit, off of you.
Sex, violence, and keeping people at odds sell like nobodies business. Even in the most simplistic of ways. For example, sports is divisive by its very nature. Team or solo, you are taught to pick a side. It should be all fun and games, but how many arguments have you witnessed, or even been in over people you don’t even know?
Politics are in the same boat. It’s a sophisticated distraction.
We get so caught up in the back and forth banter from slicked tongued salesman, that we often end up not holding those who are supposed to work for us, up on their end of the bargain.

This isn’t a MLK style plea, to all get along, this is a Malcolm X style, wake your ass up and pay attention.
You’ve been had! You’ve been took! Hoodwinked! Bamboozled! Led astray! Run amok!

In the new world of instant gratification, and short attention spans, this may be the best time for any professional swindler. ✌🏿
