what do you mean its not real? Well , anyways this christmas i asked Santa for a real president.
Exactly. We are force fed from early on. Santa, the Easter Bunny, Superman...
In the beginning there was truth. And it was dashed for the first time in our little minds by Saint Fat Man who lives in ice, rides a sleigh and
brings us presents. The first trauma to our soul is the reveal that Santa is not real. What a blow. Our world and its God are dashed. Why do parents
do that to little kids?
Later we learn that all these icons and heroes are fantasy. By the time we grow up we don't care anymore. Shove a new savior down our throat, we
eagerly jump and cheer.
I liken the presidential race to a late night talk show. Like Johnny Carson for instance. The time to attend comes, we turn on the TV, the lights go
up and everyone cheers as the "host" (a figure head) struts onto stage and entertains us with flash and style under glittering lights. We eat it up.
But it is all a carefully orchestrated play from script. Its "The Johnny Carson Show" but really its not about him. It's the propaganda, the
indoctrination and the advertising.
Same with politicians who "run for office" in elections. They are MC's, hosts, showmen to tittle our palates and make us feel good about our
selves. The media carefully constructs the "show" under glittering lights.
Like calling a race horse... " And now their down the home stretch! Its neck and neck! Who will win? We fall off our chairs.
