If we took all that is overstated and exaggerated about America the beautiful, the greatest nation on earth, or so we Americans constantly say ... and then extracted the most fortunate .. we get an extremely small group of wealthy human beings who look down upon the planet as their plaything ... and at the mass of humans as pathetic.
Using mind fiction to elevate themselves these few manipulate the perception of reality so that the circumstances match what they wish us each to imagine. War and pollution and over population and climate change are symbolic of what ensues.
Recently in America we have had a parade of imbeciles and intellectual clowns at the GOP primary in 2012 leading up to a Presidential election that in the end was surreal from a GOP perspective.
To imagine that someone could be chosen to run for President whose religion dictates he personally oversee the overthrow of the United States Government and replace it with a theocracy is hard to fathom ... and add to that the wide eyed Paul Ryan; a totally unqualified candidate for VP.
Even today after the election we have the likes of Herman Caine and Gingrich and Rick Santorum expelling vitriol on right wing public airwaves.
When or more importantly how can we make these propagandists go away?Rubio and Ryan are already running for President.
How dare they!
Those of us who wish normality aka decency and goodness and happiness and good will, must realize that this is a war being waged for OUR minds. It is a war that never ends .... and that is well financed.
OUR enemies are capitalism and corporations and religion and most of all conventional wisdom. All of this glued together by a corporate owned, sponsored and managed media.
There is a large presence in our family rooms ... that controls what we see, hear, say and think.
WE have been lied too since birth. And lying begets liars.
Lying to ourselves is as common as a thought.
Does anyone recall when we were supposed to be able to retire at an earlier age due to technological progress?
I imagine that over-population and the greed of a few got in the way of that idea!
Wars are a good example of planned obsolescence. While technology has produced advanced consumer goods at an amazingly fast pace and even lower cost ... OUR military has for some reason not realized the benefits of technology. We insist on fighting wars at the level of OUR opponents while not using the full array of technology to it's fullest capacity.
The GOP is obsolete, but why?
Religion is obsolete, bigotry is obsolete, nationalism is obsolete and lies though not obsolete are more easily recognizable.
Education is the enemy of oppressors, and the GOP is oppressive.
Solutions are portioned off to segments of society as rewards for political support.
Thus far the GOP is winning. Those with the most are benefiting the most .. and want even more to solidify their power and financial superiority.
They inherit more wealth and therefore knowledge through expensive advanced education programs.
THE amazingly large number of those few in power on earth can be traced to only 11 universities on earth.
Alongside the squalor of ghettos those put in charge of society live decadent lives filled with waste and human rights abuses.
Somehow we have been trained to worship this psychological enslavement. Television is the tool used to shape our thoughts and lives as a society. OUR so called leaders choose to run .. we do not get to select for whom we vote. We are voting for one of a small group of candidates to represent us - who have chosen themselves!
Politics is a two shell game in America.
Yet as individuals many of us realize deep within that this is not normal. There should normally be more than two outcomes in life.
War and poverty and pollution and famine and income equality are not goals.
So why are these undesirables so prevalent?
How much do the masses have to say about the shape of society and governments and nations?
In the very end the mass of humanity will have the last word. However in the present those in control milk their power for all it's worth.
I don't attribute anything special to the office of President of the United States .. however I do attach great meaning and hope to individuals based on their words followed by actions that match what has been said.
Those most prominent voices of today include Barack Obama, Bill Clinton and Warren Buffett who represent the wealthiest humans.
WE also need voices of equal prominence from the masses to represent most who are not wealthy rather than acting on behalf of the masses.
Organizations including educational are representing the masses but in truth are ultimately controlled by the super race. Non-profit institutions are profitable for those individuals who run them.
Education is the primary cure for inequality of outcomes. While money can artificially level the playing field amongst humans, it does so only for the few.
The masses are actually digressing as the quality of life is also being diminished by our very existence.
Yet those with the most money and control are doing extremely well while looking upon those with the least money and the most children with disdain.
How often have we heard the words welfare, poverty, education and children mangled together and translated into the definition of an inferior class of human beings ... who are deemed not worth.
The poor or "lower" class.
How can there NOT be class warfare when all we have are classes lower, middle and upper.
In reality we have only two classes by size ... the 2% and the 98%.
The few and the many.
