For those in constant "We must do something!"
Consider this: The time for doing something has come and passed (about 50 years ago) and what needed to be done wasn't going to happen because all of
our representatives were getting filthy rich riding the gravy train. Both political parties were infiltrated at the same time by the same interest,
and the sexually-repressed, thrill-starved, overweight, middle-aged, mother-fixated, flaccid, politicians were easy prey.
Since then, we have believed that we could still "do something" about this. That is an illusion. There isn't going to be that kind of solution to
The political system is diseased. Not the government, not the people, the POLITICAL system. There is only ONE party, no matter what anyone says; you
are either in it, or you don't matter. (Ask Ron Paul, or Jessie Ventura how much "influence" they think they wield with their current and former
Lacking a means to eradicate or abolish the political cabal in place makes 'activism' pointless. It's like relying on the idea that we have redress
to the government... when we know, in practice, we do not. We only have redress to a political party representative or appointee who may or may not
even care to hear you out.
The current cabal has had decades to perfect a "continuity of governance' plan which has been kept secret since the days of Nixon. They WILL NOT
relinquish power, even by popular demand. Should 200 million Americans take to the streets to demand their resignations, they would simply call us
"criminals" and deal with us accordingly. If the "plan" were benign it wouldn't be secret, only the 'malignant' plans are critical to hide.
This issue and many before and since will be, in future history, be demonstrable signs of what 'went wrong' with the idea that a smart ad campaign is
the reason why we vote for people. We began to accept that what makes a politician is "marketability" - opting for the glitz and charm of a
'production' rather than the content of their character.
We are not powerless, though. It's just that the idea of doing what needs to be done is beyond our programmed ability to embrace.... a simple
powerful idea that doesn't even come up in hushed tones, so removed is it from the public dialog.
Uh oh.... the Rant'o'meter just spiked... I will simmer for a while until.... the upcoming thread... wherein my rant will take a more fruitful (and
potentially less disruptive) form.
