They told you to get your CV in order, to punch your access card at the entrance, to fit in, and to follow instructions.
They told you to swallow your pride, not to follow your dream.
They promised you a nice salary and prizes and possibly riches if you would just suck it up and be part of the system, if you would merely do what you were told and conform.
They sold you debt and self-storage and reality TV shows. They sold your daughters and sons, too. All in exchange for what would happen later, when it was your turn.
It is your turn.
