In the earlier times, we recognize the traditional magic through its products like spell, hypnotize, voodoo, and etc. The expert of the traditional magic known as a shaman, psychics, voodoo priest and so on. In
doing magic a shaman usually uses media such as frankincense, various
kinds of natural objects such as leaves, plant roots, stems, twigs and
trees, and various considered as sacred objects such as daggers, amulets, rings,
necklaces and etc. These
objects are used by shamans to summon the ghost/spirits of ancestors for then to possess the body of the shaman, to be asked for guidance,
advice, answers, or solutions of one''s problems. One goes to shaman for various purposes like: to become rich, to predict future, to harm or even kill their enemies by
Despite the traditional magic still exists today, the practical of traditional witchcraft is already left behind by modern society and switched to the
practical of modern witchcraft. In pursuing wealthiness modern society creates monetary system called economy, in which the traditional witchcraft and the economy have in common similarities as both are invisible and intangible. It is
just not done by a traditional shaman but by an economist and to be an economist, one must go through learning process and education,
graduated and obtained official certificates of economist. An economist does not need stuff like incense, roots, dagger, ring in doing economic practices but creating economic formulas.
Economy bears products like: money, banking, and trading and also involving every single person in the world. It is a global movement and a global needs, where everyone plays a crucial role within it. Then, in terms of trading economy requires a global trade of commodities such as currencies, gold, petroleum, trading stocks and etc. These
are the significant instruments in economy in maintaining and preserving the existence of modern economy. Well, in such economy products the other similarity between economy and traditional witchcraft appeared.
Why are gold and oil prices high since gold and
oil are just grains of metal and some liquids the planet earth
naturally produced, in fact, quotas are much available on earth? Why is money, which is just sheets of paper or coins with numbers added on them become very vital in life? Money, gold and oil become appraisal standards of modern wealthiness so that''s why the whole world go after them. Opinions
may have been built in terms of the benefits and the purposes of oil as it is very important energy source in supporting modern life but however, there are many other
natural fuels which naturally produced by earth like hydrogen
fuel and bio fuels
On the other hand gold is as weird as oil. Today gold is almost useless at all other than to be jewelry. Though gold has a rust-resistant and long lasting natures and it is very excellent conductor for electricity, gold is not used as the electrical wiring and electrical equipment, it is most used as jewelry and coin or bullion. Paradigm and mathematical formulas were created to magically make gold and oil as the symbol of wealth. The
economic shaman is no longer burning incense and saying spell to
make people rich, but gathered in the stock exchanges in the world.
The next question that arises is "who is entitled to determine the value or price of gold and oil?" Who gave them the right to determine those prices? It is not difficult to find the answer if you dare to take some time to think about this. Schools and universities are built to improve the economics and preserve it. Department provided by the governments of the world to specifically deal with this. Stock markets, currency markets, gold markets and oil markets are built around the world to ensure the economy to continue its existence. This is reality. Economics = Modern Witchcraft.
