Give me liberty...
...or give me cake. This is sad but true. Or is it worse? Is it more like, "Here, take my liberty. I just want security." What makes this even sadder is that that "sacrifice" of security has resulted in less security and the chains of bureaucratic tyranny bind us down while the great monster of the System feeds on the corpses of the fallen while enslaving those of us who live. As it stands so many are so used to the system that we fear to overturn it because we shouldn't question. We shouldn't be concerned. We should just continue arguing over which party should hold power while one party represents big government and the other big business.
Meanwhile, the System thrives on big business and big government manipulating a government that should be by the people and for the people so that instead it is by the government, for the corporation. And so the fools at Occupy Wall Street only see one half of the equation and call it capitalism when in reality it is corporatism (also known as mercantilism in the past) while the semi-fools at theTea Party jumps on the other half blaming big government while refusing to allow for fair taxation of the corporate giants because "We oppose raising taxes" when many of those big businesses have sluffed their responsibilities through special interest groups and backroom politics. And still we are played as even larger fools because only until the citizens of this nation stand up and say enough is enough there is there a way in heaven, hell, or God's green earth that we are going to free ourselves from the chains of this great lie so that we might slay that great monster, the System.
I am not even 30...
...and I am jaded by the senseless political system that manipulates us to the point where I want to give up. We've painted ourselves into a corner and the only way we are going to get out is if we say, "Screw it!" and just walking over the top of the paint and start over. I see little reward for taking risks and innovating. I see whining neo-hippies and failures protesting my success on one hand while large corporations and unions lie, cheat, steal, extort and bribe their way into taking my work from me.
To make things worse, if I just wanted to work for one of those corporations instead the result is my job being deported to some other nation while my debt is sold to the communist nations and my friends are sent to waste their lives in senseless wars that kill and traumatize them for people who don't give a flying shit about what they are doing there. How can a nation function at this level? How is it that we just put up with this bullshit instead of saying we are done with this system? Oh, Joseph Goebbels is laughing at us from his grave because we are being played by the propaganda that is being force fed to us by the news papers, tv stations and talk show hosts from both sides of the "political divide." In the mean time, those who would dare to speak even a semblance of truth are mocked, called wackos or placed in blacklists.
