Rather than working to live, we are deluded into thinking that we should live to work. Success in this system is measured by how much control you have over others and the amount of money you make. This, of course, is quite contrary to the prophetic way. My success, for example, should not be judged on me being appointed to the post of chief resident, but rather how just and fair I am without becoming arrogant. Our education system supports this concept of living to work. Rather than being educated to understand existence, we are educated to work.
One of the systemís characteristics is that while you are in it, it is virtually impossible to conceive of any alternative to it. Furthermore, the specializing of language and procedures ensures its continuation and prevents meaningful change in each subsystem. While one may become an expert in any particular subsystem such as the medical field, business, the insurance industry, or the legal system, rarely can any one person affect change in more than one of these subsystems.
After studying for many years and becoming ensnared by mounds of educational loans, the expert then becomes the one who benefits most from the system. Unfortunately, the expert is also the one who most understands their particular subsystem, in this the least likely to oppose that system. Take for example, a quote from one London banking firm to a New York banking firm dated the 25th of June 1863: "Few who understand the system... Will either be so interested in its profits, or so dependent on its favors, that there will be no opposition from that class, while, on the other hand, the great body of people, mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous and advantages that capital derives from the system, will bear it's burden without complaint, and perhaps without even suspected that the system is inimical to their interests..."
There is an illusion that the legal system is just, that the medical system is advanced, that the educational system provides knowledge, and that the consumer producer process is our reason for existence.
When you don't know, go to an expert.
But our systems intnetionally make it difficult to know without going to an expert.
