Wait a second.....
These “communities” (a tedious word used to disguise the inherent tribalism and groupthink beneath a veneer of solidarity and brotherly love) are
compelled to protest the egregious crime of rhetoric.
Misanthrope, you are obviously intelligent and articulate. Are you really going to accuse these folks of "egregious crimes of rhetoric" when your own
OP is an obvious example of just that? Give me a break. You can say what you want without a thesaurus or dictionary to prove your obviously superior
logic and intellect, and reach more of us by doing so. In short, you are writing to criticize people who are proselytizing in the very same way you
The hard truth is it really doesn't matter who was elected or what they supposedly stand for. It's not going to change a damn thing in anyone's life.
There's a plan at work, always, and it has absolutely nothing to do with the patsy we call the "president." It's all rhetoric, from that standpoint,
and most people with any intellect are well aware of that. Politics has long been a way of baiting and identifying people, and excluding or including
them. That's all it really is. Every president by the time his term is over ends up with gray hair. And once they retire, they get at least $100,00
a year pension and a security detail for their protection for life. And what did they do to deserve all that? They took the blame. That's all it
amounts to. They don't really make the decisions, direct the policy or the country, or make any difference. Most people don't want to face that
because it defies everying we are invested in about "demoncracy" and "America. The sad, cynical truth is, that's all crap.
We are a representative republic, and your vote counts for very little, if anything, just like the "president" we elect. None of it matters. It's a
simple con job to keep people invested in a lie, that what they think and stand for, work for, sacrifice for, matters somehow. And the truth is, it
really doesn't. No one really represents our point of view unless we have a whole lot of money, which buys influence. That is the simple reality of
capitalism. I could go on further with that, in terms of hedonism and instant gratification and the separation of humanity via technology to seduce
us to vacate our humanity, but I wouldn't want to drift your thread.
Just my humble thoughts about rhetoric and big words. Much love to you.
