There is an economic myth that fierce competition in providing more goods and services at lower cost improves people’s lives. This is a mirage. The reality is that people are assaulted with messages that more stuff for less money is the most important thing in life, and as the Nazis said, if people hear the message often enough, they will believe it. People who theoretically deny they believe this still act as though they do believe it. The net effect of following this myth in society is that people cannot compete against the constant pressure of the corporate machine and fall into poverty once these economic deities have taken the sacrifices they increasingly demand from the people. As with all other Satanic lies, this one also delivers the opposite effect of what was promised, but provides enough prosperity for enough people—the ones with power—to perpetuate the myth.
