An Anonymous White Working Man [Email him]
The growth here from resources is stunning—everywhere there are new houses going up, new cars and trucks on the roads, and a bustling trade in fast food, imported goods, and building materials.
I know that my good wages are like the timber, fur, minerals and other resource booms which came before. It is a temporary phenomenon, or at least it should be.
I`ve been saying for years that growth of consumption is the discussion which never happens. Immigration is about selling shelters, energy, food, and other consumables. It`s a Ponzi scheme which needs new blood all the time.
When I finish building homes here, I`ll move on and build houses somewhere else. This keeps a lot of white men employed and apolitical.
I detest it, but it feeds me. Even though it is keeping me fully employed, I`d rather we ended this pyramid scheme, but I don`t make policy.
