Here I am not so much asking you if you are interested in politics. I'm just exploring what that means. If someone were to ask me this question, it
would be difficult to give a straightforward answer. Why? Well, I am quite highly interested, and passionate about, certain political theories. Most
particularly the idea of individual freedom, and the illegitimacy of all restriction thereof that is not directly harmful or limiting to another.
But am I interested in politics? Well, I can tell you that as a rule I am not interested in elections. I see the larger controls at work, which
transcend so-called political divisions and separation of media into various outlets. There is clearly forces at work which are bigger than that, and
have the whole thing pre-defined. The conflicts themselves are pre-defined. As are the 'legitimate opinions.' These pre-defined 'legitimate
opinions' are espoused by 'opposing factions' in the political scene, and people get lost in these false conflicts to such a degree that they
don't even see the powerful forces at work that these 'debates' and elections don't do a damn thing about. And the media is a mouthpiece to
legitimize these conflicts, to give their stamp of approval to a few 'socially approved' views, and watch as people think that's all there is,
there really are no other legitimate opinions. There is no other way. Let's just wait for the media to tell us who the 'good' candidates are, and
we'll vote for one of them.
The only time I have ever been excited about a political election was when Ron Paul was running for the republican nomination for president. That gave
me incredible hope and optimism, helped me increase my passion for these issues. This showed me as much as anything the power of the political and
media machine, and the capacity for the population to passively accept anything that is told to them. 'He's not a legitimate candidate. This other
guy, though, he's a front runner, he can win.' How many people said, 'Well, really I like him more than the other guys. But he's not legitimate,
he can't win.' Well, because the media said he was illegitimate and can't win, millions of people believed he was illegitimate and couldn't win,
thus he was illegitimate and couldn't win. You see? Circular. Mental realities fabricated by the media.
So am I interested in an election, in a candidate? Well, there is one question you can ask, which will say whether there is any chance I may be
interested. Is this guy considered radical, revolutionary, and spoken of disparagingly by the entirety of the existing mainstream? If he's not,
there's just no chance I could be interested. Which doesn't mean that I will support anyone who is radical. It simply means that if someone is
accepted into the fold of mainstream politics, I basically hate him. There is no chance whatsoever I could support him. He's contributing to the
radical and widespread manipulation of the population, at scales and at depths which we can hardly fathom. If he's media-approved, you can be sure
he's not gonna do much good. Nothing of substance will change.
