The “WE MOVEMENT” as in “us”. As the song says: “The world don’t get no better if we just let it be…we gotta change it yeah for you and me….No more backward thinkin, time for thinkin ahead…Need some help y’all-can’t do it alone…All you businessmen stop the cheaters….”
In my work as a Document Examiners I encounter cheaters-perhaps more than most. And in my 35 years as an expert, it seems to be getting worse and worse. The internet and business today seems to be dominated by them. Everything is a “scheme”. To me the word “scheme” has a decidedly negative connotation. Webster’s dictionary describes a “scheme” as a “plot’, “conspiracy”, “contrivance”, “intrigue”, “machination”—certainly not something i would be proud of. Yet the word is openly used in “respected” business circles today without hesitation. And who controls business today? Wall Street-the multi-billion dollar corporations-Walmart-Google etc. We all know the names. As the size of the middle class keeps disappearing. It was announced recently that the amount of wealth controlled by the top 1%–those making over $350,000.00 a year has risen to an all time high-not seen since the mid-1920’s and we ALL know what happened in 1929-even if we had to read it in a history book. A famous writer once said: “If we don’t learn from our history, we are doomed to repeat it.
So, in the words of Howard Melvin and the Blue Notes: “WAKE UP EVERYBODY”
