Whilst colonialism by waring nations has slowly decreased across the globe. Corporate colonialism has been steadily rising, seizing power in society, using it's social and economic influence to extract resources; with little or no concern for the worlds fellow inhabitants. That's because corporate colonial power; has no stake or little compassion for the welfare of indigenous populations or local economy's; Lives are cheap.
The super elite are so detached from reality, that they literally live in Alyssum; seemingly avoiding all the negative consequences of their poor conduct and requiring just a small workforce to realise production.
The welfare of the surplus population, especially ￼￼those too young, or too old to work is immaterial; unprofitable; and as such, is poorly funded, so as to pacify the masses and stave off civil-unrest.
Globally there is a constant and gradual increase in funding profitable military sectors, mining and the media; and a gradual decline in funding environmental schemes, health, and education. ￼
All of you. Where do you get off making a name for yourself out of the mockery in fallen heroes’ hearts? What’s in a name; that which we call "a genius" by another label would be found on the front page of the obituaries.
And now, what? Where do you go from the top, looking down on those you trampled on the way with some false sense of humility? How we perceive you now is like that of a crime lord; envious, never aspirational.
Might as well call it a day and take note of the fallacy that is fame and fortune.
you just awaken every day to stumble through unknown places and trip through the gaps in spaces; you are not safe, you’re lost, you relay stolen lines all the same. you say: “i just need to get through this week” as if, after sunday, unique places will appear, that you will understand, at last. a standstill comes, but now your world is oblique.

Why do we call it a "Performance Review" When we aren't putting on a show
Why do we call it "talent acquisition" When nature didn't gift us to them
Why do we call it "workplace culture" When it's an artifice of art
Why do we call ourselves "employed" When it's for anybody but the will of God
Why are we stuck in this Why are we cursed to "field operations" Why are we lost in "development cycles" Why are we living for "benefits packages"
Why don't we curse the steel stakes? Why don't me make our own? Why get lost in knowing quarterly reports When there's autumn leaves, spring trees, summer heat and winter's snow?
Do not go gentle into that good night, Where your presence is given overtime Instead give your presence over time To the love of the one Who built gardens for us And will gift us away from the pain of this world Don't trust any who say it can be here Don't trust those who say paradise is a product When we are the product of paradise.
