We can invent any common bogey man for the cause of our societal sufferings. In fact we’re good at this.
Whether it is the government eagles, the corporate chickenhawks, the ultra-rich pigs, the elephants, the donkeys—we always have a menagerie to
choose from. Follow the money—or so they say.
But surely, my friends, we cannot blame our government leaders, for they have arrived by democratic election. We did our part and have chosen them to
represent us, speak in our place, and, as it were, to do what we are unwilling to do—lead ourselves. We readily consumed their rhetoric, trusted
them and signed the ballots with our own hands, bought and sold. They come and go with our accordance. The government...they are no enemy. They are
us. Majority rules.
Certainly, we cannot blame the corporations. We feed them. We fund them. We are the boss. They offer products and services and we willingly hand over
our money. Supply and demand. Contract law. Everything they own we’ve paid for. We built their towers. A simple choice would end their
climb to the heavens—eliminate the demand, end the supply. Maybe too difficult? Maybe not important. Majority rules.
And we certainly cannot blame the banks, the rich, the church, the media—we are the soil from where these monstrosities grow. We cultivate them,
water them and allow them to bask in our light. We buy into systems that allow them to flourish when all we need do is turn our backs, leave them in
the shadows to whither. But we want them here. They are the product of our culture. We are their culture. We are culture. Majority
Follow the money and where does it always lead but to our pockets. Culture—the right, the left, the in-betweens, the capitalism, communism, any
isms, the hate, the violence, the art, the rhetoric—our shining masterpiece singed by all who built it, the majority, the mob, "The People That
Be", the herd.
Seek no further than what you see in the mirror for the cause of our suffering, and the key to your release from it.
Majority rules. Individual suffers.
