We seem to agree that the corporations and the rich (however so loosely defined) control government. With that in mind isn't it just a little bit ridiculous to believe that true change will come about by simply asking the government to regulate their owners? We are not their masters. It's not really in their interest to listen to us, so they don't listen to us. They probably never did listen to us, which begins to explain how we got where we are today. And they'll continue fleecing everyone until enough people wake the fuck up to make real change inevitable.
It doesn't really matter what you believe or what you want. What matters is what will happen. And voting for the same old shit, playing that same old game is not going to yield results substantially different.
Swallow as many soundbites from either "side" of the aisle. They're all designed to placate you, to blame, to point fingers, to create scapegoats and instigate class warfare, to pit people against one another & to encourage dependence on the system controlled by the elites, rather than rather fostering cooperation and real community.
I think this is an accurate summary of what is going on.
Do you remember how exited people were when Obama got into office?
All around the world people where hailing the dawn of a new age.
Fraid not. It was just a smoke screen to make people believe things would change. All around the world people bought it. The people pulling the strings have not changed and will not change through "democratic" elections. They own both the main candidates. I would go so far as to say its impossible to be a genuine contender unless they own you.
Its just a facade to make people believe they are choosing what happens on capital hill.
The UK is just the same. Its the same story around the developed world.
I believe that change is coming and with a non violent revolution. People just need to learn to live consciously and live as independently as possible. To stand on their own feet as much as possible and support each other in their communities.
The community is something that has been stripped away because people are much easier to control as individuals and individual families. Divide and conquer has been an effective strategy.
If enough people can wake up and learn to live more independently from the system this can happen. Bottom up change because top down promised changed is never going to arrive.
