The True Conspiracy That Divides Us

While people are fussing over whom see's who as nuts, extremists, racists, bigots or radicals they miss entirely the reality that for the most part, we are all pretty much alike on many if not most topics.

We do ourselves a disservice when we concentrate on only what divides us and ignore what unites us. I think that is the plan all along.

You see that is all part of the technique they use to control you, to control me. Nobody ever sees their own beliefs as radical. They see the other person’s beliefs as radical.

By playing the differences in our beliefs against us, they fully control most of us. The Democrats, Republicans and Party Loyalty are slight of hand tricks. While we are looking at one hand the other is above our heads controlling the strings like a marionette.

Reality is that most Politicians use lies and deception to get into office and then immediately turn us against each other to keep our eyes diverted from what they are really doing.

They know they can use our hatreds and bigotry to control us and we see it more and more every day. When people are controlled by a Party rather than the Party being controlled by the people it destroys any chance of change or progress for the better.

Until everyone realizes they are being played for fools by both the people they voted for and media, nothing will ever change for the better.

When was the last time you ever saw the Right, the Left and those in between come together to discuss the things we can agree upon and change to improve our lives?

The Two Party System is actually a double edged sword that cuts both ways. We all loose and the bad guys always win. It does not have to be this way. Those in power understand this completely. Their hold on power and wealth depend upon keeping us at each others throats.

If they keep us angry enough at each other they know they can control us. Their biggest fear is that we will come together, be honest with each other and strip them of their power over us. No power can stand up to the will of a united people and it never could.

I’m sure there are many wants and desires we share whether on the Left, Right or none of the above. I’d like to for once see a discussion of what are the things we can agree on? What changes would be welcome by most of us? On what issues can we compromise to our mutual benefit?

Right now it seems to me we are mirroring the behavior of our leaders to our own detriment. Day after day we see the same behavior here as we see in the halls of government. Does anyone really believe that is by accident? They are playing us like fiddles and they control the tune.
I don’t know about everyone else but I’m tired of being controlled and manipulated. I’m tired of good people being bitter enemies over ideas planted in their heads by these evil people who rule over us. People who would likely be friends were it not for this partisan bickering and the planted ideas in their heads designed to divide us.

The largest conspiracy of all is staring us right in the face every day and we enable it by continuing to work against each other instead of working together.

Hello, Blaine91555, glad to know you. I think I have covered what actually divides us all, here:
My conclusion is Politics is the real divider. Apply politics to anything, and people choose sides. The main dividers are: Gender, Race, Religion, and Politics

Read my post, and see if you can add to it. Please?

Yeah, I'm sure this has been discussed often and that is why I posted under this topic. I'm not so much looking for lots of responses as I am trying to convey that we will never get anywhere with all this petty bickering and divisiveness.

The more of us who see through this and get past it, the better off we all are.

I've got to go to a meeting. I'll visit your thread when I get back.

When was the last time you ever saw the Right, the Left and those in
between come together to discuss the things we can agree upon and
change to improve our lives?

- I can't say that I ever have in all honesty, you're right on Blaine.
where do we start to get it together?

And how do we make sure that any movement doesn't get hijacked?

I would love to see a viable third party emerge in America, it could
make a critical difference and force the Republicans and Democrats
to get real and start working for us instead of it being the other way
around. Are they public servants or is the public serving them? we
know the answer to that and that's why people are getting so mad
these days.

I think the hour is very late and if we don't act soon the
PTB just might screw things up for us terminally. Many of us feel that
coming on and it's adding impetus to our movement (if we are a movement).
It isn't a race thing or a progressive or conservative thing - it's a
people thing! If we can start putting human needs first the rest will
follow and we stand to win. Non-action is self-imposed sentence to
despair and inequality. I was a Ron Paul supporter and yet I don't
think he had the pull to create a big enough movement to force
change. Perhaps what we need most is a charismatic leader who
can bring people issues to the forefront. I love your avatar BTW

I think it has to start with us. We are the pool from which our leaders are derived.

The only real power they hold over us is controlling us through our emotions. There are plenty of qualified people to lead us who would be willing if things were not the way they are.

As it is now if a person runs for office, every little bit of dirt, any mistakes, their families and children are all used as a weapon against them. Truth be known, somebody with a less than stellar background is probably who we want in charge in the first place. These people with impenetrable veneers of credibility, who won't share who they truly are with us are the problem.

The House was and is supposed to be a protective device made up of ordinary people. It was intended to give us power against the career politicians we see in complete control today.

I find the fact they have even stooped to attacking peoples children beyond deplorable. I'm thoroughly and utterly disgusted by that behavior.

To make it worse we have Celebrities who suddenly proclaim themselves experts on everything and actually work to help rig elections one way or the other. We have these 501(C)[3] groups who lie to the IRS to get Federal Funds and then openly campaign for candidates and they get away with it because the IRS is a tool of whoever is in power at the moment.

It all seems insurmountable, but I don't think it is. Divided we have no power but as a united body nobody could control us. How people can not see that the words of hatred they spew are put there on purpose by bad people that have power over them defeats me. It is becoming so apparent, so obvious.

It must become us, the united We The People who are against them, the corrupt government we have allowed to flourish rather than us divided against each other. The ivory towers would fall overnight.

No matter who the person is, if we speak for a long enough time (or research them) for long enough, we can find something that we agree on no matter what it is we stand for.

I think most people think that somewhere along the line, the world broke. lol

Nail and head meets in my opinion. It's simular to certain tactics used in fighting large scale forrest fires so it's not exactly an idea without precedent. Back-Burn

Back burning is a way of reducing the amount of flammable material during a bushfire by starting small fires along a man made or natural firebreak in front of a main fire front. It is called back burning because the small fires are designed to 'burn back towards the main fire front'. The basic reason for back burning is so that there is little material that can burn when the main fire reaches the burnt area. The firebreaks that may be used to start a line of fires along could be a river, road or a bulldozed clearing etc.
