Providing the Dream…

One Mans Dream is Another Mans Toil...

It’s come to my attention that after many years on this earth that “capitalism” is the “dream” and anything which drives the “dream” also drives “capitalism” as the two are locked in a romanticized tango to the end.    As this is too where we must be honest with ourselves in that everyone will not achieve the “dream” nor are all “dreams” created equally either.  This means there will be winners and losers, as in the arch-rival communistic system while “maybe” [stressed heavily on the “maybe” from my eastern-bloc comrades comments] have their stomach’s filled with cheap high carbohydrate fill (which often lends to a shortened life for health reasons), their dreams were wholly different.

While the point here is not to wain about the fight of good and evil when it comes to social-economic systems, it instead is to point out the importance of the “dream” the fact that our role in a “capitalistic” economy is  to fulfill someone else’s dreams and therefore, fulfilling our own.  As think about it, do you dream about that new car?  Sure you do, or some other like object and while your dreams will have scale (as I have a corvette yet yearn for a Ferrari) I have taken that first step on the “staircase of dreams” as being a “dream” it can never be completely satisfied as we take that one step forward we fail to realized that we in fact haven’t moved at all.

As much like the release of a new Apple ™ product, we know that every year there will be a new “something” that is better than the former “something” and for the same price as that “something”.  So therefore that “something” we dreamed of and yearned for is now a “nothing”, as there is a new “something” which when we dream of will become a “nothing” and so on.

This is the reason for analogizing as “romanticized tango to the end” as both are locked into a whirl wind dance to the very end, as conjugal consummation the ideal end of any dance duality is never allowed to take place.  As while a fool and his money may soon part their ways, they are still left with the dream…

About Joseph Campbell

As a strong believer in the fact that "people work for people", it has been a life driver to better to understand the complexities of the various aspects which drive efficiency within this axiom, especially the concepts of leadership. Supporting this, I have been fortunate enough to having experienced this as leader on a global basis over the last decade and half. During this time it has been clear there are three core drivers being Life, Leadership and Economics.
