    Default Disneyland

    California. A land of dreams.

    Dale Diz Coba worked in Disneyland before he moved to Stepford.
    The mothers of homeless children in Anaheim work there, too.
    Have their children seen Disneyland? No.
    Will they ever see Disneyland? They do not even dream of it.
    The mothers do not only work in Disneyland. They have at least one other regular job.
    Some of the mothers have three jobs.
    They still do not make enough money to rent an apartment.
    Their husbands have many jobs, too. They do not do drugs or drink alcohol.

    There is a discrepancy here, if you noticed.
    Something does not match. Why the children have never seen Disneyland?
    The tickets are too expensive. How many visitors Disneyland has one day?
    What I have seen in the media, it is quite a throng.
    It is obvious Disneyland makes lots of money.
    Not enough to pay minimum wages to its workers.
    What is minimum wages? Minimum wages keeps the worker's kids off the streets.
    What is in the streets in a slum in Anaheim? Whores, concrete, drugs and litter.

    How much do Californian taxpayers have to pay to cover the social costs Disneyland leaves behind? Ten times as much Disneyland would have to pay to keep the workers' children off the streets? More than that.

    Why? Why the society has to pay what Disneyland should pay?

    our culture has become so backwards that we believe the government should subsidize the exploitative behaviors of the private market
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    Become? As if it wasn't already?

    We've always wanted something for nothing

    I still do, and I'll do everything in my power to make it happen

    My car, for example, propels me many miles in a short time. Am I lazy? Am I bad? Am I exploiting the world? Maybe I'm all those things, but I don't care

    I am not your priest. I am not interested in your confessions. Go to your parish. Do not whine here.

    A girl is in school in Anaheim, Ca. She gets sick because she has eaten only junk food, given to her by a charity foundation, for days. Her belly is in a bad condition. She phones her father. Her father's car could propel her home in a short time. Her father says he cannot come. There is no gas in the gas tank. He has no money to buy any. Fortunately he lives so close to Disneyland he can walk to his job.

    True.
    What has become backwards is already backwards. He does not know the difference between the present and the past tense. But it is not a sin.

    I am most interested to sleep my nights. But I cannot, because the delivery boy of the postal service does his rounds in the night. The dogs start to bark at the intruder. He cannot do his rounds daytime because he has another job then. The poor lad has to pay his rent.
