Ecuador -Part 1

Posted on Feb 15 2004 under Diary of the ONE | Tags: , , , , , ,

It seems like once again I’m bored, bored of work, board of putting up with the restraints & restrictions of living in a society that is organised, governed & exploited by those privileged enough to have attained to seats of money & power.

Once you enter the arena that is business & politics your ethics & moralities can easily be swayed by the force of the man with the money or by the promises of the elusive, exclusive investors or big deal.
Many times had I found that the next gig is in Dutcha Bank, Morgan Stanley, Credit Swiss, Andersons, KPMG or any other big nasty financial or consulting company?

The wealthy control & have all, the rest are nothing but slaves to the wimp & fads of the so formed elite society.
