Gold-Standard Virtue

The gold standard,
Capitalism,

Everything must grow,
Everything must expand,
More customers,
More views,
More money,
An inspirational success,

A gold-standard virtue,

Unquestioned,
It just is,
Bred deeply into the minds of everybody,
Unquestioned,
It just is,
A fundamental assumption,
Unquestioned,
It is,
Economic success,
Unquestioned,
Unlimited,
Unsustainable,
Pure, unbridled,
Gold-standard virtue,
To be,
Forever growing,
Without stopping,
The runaway capitalistic train!

    1. Thank you!!

      Yes, and I was thinking also of people with youtube channels, or who run podcasts, who are always desperate for you to subscribe to them. I don’t see the logic behind asking somebody to follow youβ€” if they want to, they will! And it’s just so so irritating and repetitive! It’s like frothing at the mouth for growth in the name of capitalism and personal gain xD.
