what i find the most dissapointing thing about things such as these. well it seems that the good ship "democracy" has turned from a vessal of peace
and help into a warship bound to turn everything towards it's own image. just as communisim used to preach about turning all the world to communisim,
now democracty is working towards turning the world into it's own brand of dictatorship. the fact that it seems that business is being put forth as
more important than people just shows how far the dreams of our ancestors has been turned arround and remade to suit big business. democracy was
FOUNDED FOR THE BENIFET OF THE PEOPLE. to PROTECT the people from unfair tyrony of kings and the aristocracy.
well we have just reinvented the aristocracy, that part is now played by big business. the rich are still acting like the rich. lording over and
controlling the lives of the pesants. afterall they KNOW what is best for all, not to mention the further lineing of their pockets in the process as
well as keeping the pesants under controll. the ceo's are the new princes, with their newwer version of earls, dukes and viscounts under them. the
king tends to be selected from amonst those ranks of prices and royal family lines. just look at all the money it takes to run a national campain. a
peasant may be alowed to "run" but in all honesty stands little chance of suceeding amounst those parties which are firmly entrenched into the
sure the government "rules" but in reality are held in check by those big busnessess as well as special interest groups which support them
finantualy. that support is in the form of the monies given to run for office. they litteraly BUY votes, the votes of congressmen as well as senitors,
as well as those holding the "high offices" this was not intended to happen. the government was formed to combat the controll over the many by the
few. but over time this has been eroded away untill the people are of little real concern when placed oppisit of the needs of the new aristocracy.
it is of no real suprise that there is now a spacific office devoted to the takeover of those who do not operate likewise. in fact i see the great
eperiment of democracy turning more and more into the authoritarian controll that it was created to replace. it has also become much more like the
communist systom became. that is that a few elite controll everything while the many are kept in check as the serfes that they are seen to be. oh they
try to make sure that we are kept pacified, after all they need us to do the actual work that needs to be done.
just like the kings of old, there is the need to expand to bring more ritches into the kindoms. and the kindoms are no longer countries but business.
as such it is not necisary to concur in name but in business practices. therefore any country who is not under the "freedom" of democracy is
something that needs to be changed. the reason is simple. if the state controlls things then the businesses do not make money. business needs to be in
ultimate controll and that can only happen with democracy. democracy has become only an illusion hideing those who realy have the power, that is those
that have the money who controll business "empires".
now there is nothing wrong perse with makeing money, that works oinly to insure that things get done and improvements take place. the problem is that
it has become power to influance how nations are run. why is it that the people have a ta burdan, when the more money you get the less you have to pay
in ta. i am not talking about doller amounts but of the amounts of what you make percentage wise. why are there so many ways for busnesses and the
rich to have so many ways to avoid paying taxes. just look at advertiseing for instance. promotions and comercials are a tax break.why? they are not
doing this to benifet the people but to get more people to buy what they sell. it is a cost of doing business. you don't have to advertise after all,
but it makes sence to. so why does it discount what taxs that they pay? they PROFFIT by advertiseing. they don't realy loose money, if they do then
oviously they are not makeing wise business decisions. the same thing for ta breaks for "entertaining" possible suppliers and cliants. again this is
done not out of need but to make deals to make money, again they are proffiting from this. so why a tax break? tax breaks should be there to help even
the odds, to help those who DON"T have all that much, not to help those who already have more than they realy need.
we have all heard that government and religion should not co-mingle. well perhaps it is time to add that govenment and business should not co-mingle.
like religion bussiness should not have involvement in the governing body. all that causes is ruleing in faver of the "ruleing class". democracy was
developed to PROTECT PEOPLE not BUSINESS. it is far paassed the time to remove this taint and return the power to the people. if we were to do that
then mabe there wouldn't be the need to " concour for proffit.
