In last few months oil price at pump suddenly gone up and we do not see any signs of coming it down. It made life essentials expensive forcing people to make choice between food and commute to work. Every smallest news affecting oil supply was considered to hike crude oil prices but major drop in oil consumption in past 17 years by people, increase in price of oil in major oil consuming countries to cause decrease in oil consumption, and decision to increase production of oil by major oil producers, did not caused a penny of decrease in the price of crude oil. Is it not mysterious? No body has explanation nor wants to explain people why it is so? Regulators once again failed to avoid ‘oil boom’ created by so called ‘capitalism’. Once again common has to pay price for it.
This reminds me people on ‘AXIOM’ space cruise from WALL-E movie. People’s life depicted on “AXIOM” space cruise is very much synonymous with our lives today; our lives are no more independent. This movie not only gives strange glimpse about our future but uncovers truth of our current lives.
How? Take couple of seconds to think, compare our lives with those on space cruise shown in the movie. Our lives are totally dependent on oil driven transportation, we are used to large luxurious cars sold by motor companies as per their business profitability model, and we are hypnotized by easily available loans and paralyzed by accumulating debt. For generations we are traditionalized by junk food chain. We are trapped in the web woven by corporate world under name of ‘capitalism’.
Our social position is not at all different than people on space cruise shown in the movie. Those people lost their existence, lost their thinking and could not think of anything else other than their own comfort. Are our lives different than those people from space cruise?
