The rich wont save the rest of men. That is the fact.
Inheritance does not only mean inheritance of posesions but also inheritance of class position from ones family, possibly also inheritance of their
state of mind in which one is raised.
Take a look back at the sixties in your countryes south parts; havent there been an open segregation of afro-americans, open exploitation of their
working hands and open devidance between blacks and whites? This was happening less than seventy years ago. Remember, many of the rich that were a
motor to this crime have transfered their moral and ethical standards along with posesions of wealth and of course their political positions to their
sons and daughters.
But what does all this chatter has to do with the constructs of our political systems. In short everything.
I hope you will not argue my stand that people had been always ruled by economical
Reality is that s.c. political systems are the way to insure the devidance between the small upper class and the masses of lower classes with
inserting the so called public service class (politicians - law makers, police, army, legal services, bureaucracy, scolars, medicine workers,
believers institutions, etc.) in the middle to act one as a shock absorbers, the others as a force providers. So in one phrase to hand out sticks and
carrots. This class is what we should call the middle class.
As I seee it, politics has been presented as a career, a job actually, that only refers to individuals that had been chosen to do this job. Insert
here the voting of many people who are willing to participate in choosing the presented candidates, people that agree to actually take the blame if
their chosen candidate is a fault and also agree that the voting that they attend once in a while is their only political action that they can
participate in, are allowed to and are willing to do.
The rest is easy. Once you have persuaded people that the difference in moral, ethical and religious stands that their representative politician/party
holds is enough to support him, you can throw in as many parties as you like.
Believe me, I come from the country where there are many parties even in parliament. What it comes to is they form a coalition which covers more that
50% of the seats and then devide the ministries accordingaly. And here we go again; coalition on one side, opposition on the other - two party.
The real point here isnt the need to do away with the 2 party system.
The real need is to see things as they are. The real need is to identify and address to the real problems that are affecting our societies. The real
need is to end the devidance amongst people.
What if one day no one came to vote?
