Which Direction Is Louis DeJoy Taking the Post Office? Toward Better Useful Government Service Or Toward Having People Expect to Pay Taxes/Fealty to All Benevelent ‘Corporations’ as he Morphs Government into Pay Model?
If you enjoyed the post office having cheap service and fast delivery, you were mistaken to be pleased with such things. When the government does something good for people, it is wrong. Pooling resources collectively to help a community thrive is out of date and now all such endeavors must strive to compete along different lines – the top-down, corporate controlled PROFIT MOTIVE system. This is how societies do well, according to Louis DeJoy. Because the post office ‘operates at a loss’, though metaphorically providing the well being of a healthy circulatory system for our civic body, it is out of date and must be cleansed, to serve the profit motive.
The future for people like this is slavery to corporations like Amazon who set the terms of what levels of comfort, what standards of living are permitted to us proletarian from leach-sucking tower fortresses. This is the motive behind DeJoy’s changes to the post office. If a 1% is not reaping more benefit than 99% from the setup, it is not functioning properly. Remember the name, folks DE-JOY!
His literal plan is ‘slower service, higher prices’ which I can only interpret as hoping to destroy the post office to bend the knee to its competitors, or privatize it completely, destroying what it is now in essence. IT’S A SHIT PLAN, BOY.
This is not how to create a better society. This is how you make more money while destroying hopes for a better society. You’re fucked.
