Letter from a Working Class Jew A lot of Jews are struggling too.
"People are still in complete denial of the fact that working all day does not benefit us at all; it just keeps us in our pathetic position."
by Sid Green
I was born into a Jewish family in the United States. My siblings and I grew up in a comfortable middle class house. While we were materially provided for, our emotional lives were completely chaotic and dysfunctional.
We all suffered from anger attacks, depression, and general malaise all the time. This is true of the extended family as well. This aspect of life was kept private from other families, except when it exploded onto the scene and we fought in front of others.
There was a feeling that we were more "genuine" than Gentiles in our behavior, while now it strikes me that we were simply less kind to each other and more malicious.
My parents divorced and my father went through a mid life crisis and arrested development.
My parents were "secular" as in, they did not believe in God. They valued Judaism as a racial distinction. Our lives were defined by materialism. We went after what felt good. The school of thought that was most fiercely attacked was Christianity.
I was taught that Christianity was pure evil and the reason for all the suffering in the world. I truly believed this for many years. We were told that there is no such thing as the Devil and that the Gentiles just hated us for no reason.
At the same time, we were subject to the same economic pressures as many of the Gentiles, because my parents pawned their house and lost everything. I got a job when I was 14, and I've been employed and underpaid since then.
In all the emotional turmoil, college may have been mentioned but it was hard to focus. On all kinds of pharmaceuticals, I was encouraged to go to psychiatrists and solve my mental pain with drugs.
I didn't attend college immediately, but I did get sucked into Zionism. Like many Jews, I went to Israel and tried to start over and live there. I was hoping for a feeling of solidarity and community that had been lacking in my family and country.
What I found was a morally bankrupt society which was an exact replica of my life in the USA. People worked hard for low wages and spent their time having sex and doing drugs. Success is measured by academic degrees, army service, and then "Careers".
PRESSURE TO MATE
In my family I was harassed when I did not have a girlfriend and asked what was wrong. In my sexual obsession which inevitably included drugs and alcohol, I reached a state of pure nihilism which for me now symbolizes the ultimate goal of Judaism (which is another word for secularism).
Disaster struck, until, hospitalized, I was forced to confront the fact that I was on the wrong track. I took care of my issues and I started working hard. I started taking classes to finish my degree and got experience working in my field.
The salary provides for basic existence and nothing more. I live in a shared situation and constantly run into people like a dorm room situation. It costs 1000$ a month to live like this. There are retired people here in this situation too.
I had to return to the USA, but Israel and the USA are almost identical. They both resemble a huge department store and are completely controlled by corporations and people addicted to the products of corporations. Independent thought is almost non existent in both countries.
Thru extensive research, and the ability to actually utilize my intellect, I discovered that things were not as they seem in the world. Much like in "the Matrix" I discovered that "we are slaves" and that the reality we live in is fabricated. This website partly contributed to my realization but so did the Scriptures. It was the Book of Enoch that really tied everything together and caused me to understand history. It became clear to me, that when "the daughters of men increased" (Genesis 6:1) and angels came down and mated with those women, they spawned hybrids known as Nephilim.
They created monsters and genetically engineered hybridized animals "to provoke the Lord to anger". (Enoch 6,7) These beings were largely destroyed in the flood, along with the hybridized dinosaurs ("terrible lizards") that they had created with genetic engineering and interbreeding. However, the ruling elite bloodlines in our societies are still controlled by the offspring of these evil fallen angels. ECONOMIC BONDAGE
What people don't understand in the west is that their currencies are nothing more than debt owed to central bankers. Thus, with the means to create money, the bankers have control over the population and since we can't create our own money but only beg for theirs, we are slaves.
The capability for my generation to buy an apartment or house does not exist in Israel or the United States. We all rely on inheritances and gifts. The money made as a result of working is only sufficient to cover rent in sub par conditions and provide for other basics.
While a college graduate used to be able to buy a house after getting a job, more and more people with degrees can only find part-time work. Even if working full time, this only provides enough to rent a small place, not enough to buy a house much less raise a family.
For working to be worth it, the wages and salaries would have to actually be enough to buy the things necessary to live a comfortable existence, but that is not possible at all for most people in this country.
People blame themselves for their low positions in society, not realizing that the fault does not lie with them. They're just worker bees increasingly wasting their energy on minuscule wages.
The myth that if you try hard, you will succeed is still deeply ingrained in the ignorant consciousness of this unfortunate country.
The depth of this denial is such that there seems to be no realization at all that anything in society is wrong. This is leading to an increasingly ridiculous and absurd situation in society.
