Work to eat or eat to work?
This is seemed similar to:
“Who comes first, the egg or the chick?”
I want to work so I can eat
I want to eat so I can work
There are times I don’t eat but I can still work
No work no pay, no pay no eat!
How could I work if banks have my wealth?
Am I working for the banks?
Am I enslaved by the banks?
Or I am the slave of myself to love the banks?
I am looking for real money to buy food
Not the fiat money when cut became useless
I need silver and gold when burn still holds worth!
When I can have it I can eat to work!
Thank you capitalism!
