limitless greed and corruption
… in political circles.
Declaring the obvious, like in the headlines above, is easy enough, but the moment partylines are removed even the
obvious becomes problematic for followers who want exceptions introduced for their own favorites.
Well, sorry, but partylines and other artificial divides make no difference whatsoever when greed- and power-hunger take hold. Corrupt and greedy “saints” are just as corrupt and greedy as all the others in political circles.
The archaic saying that…
once piglings have sucked onto tits on the state-sow, keeping at it is all
that matters in life
… seems to fit perfectly for loads of politicians.
Discussions around the “legality” of any political decision, are meaningless when the same people are behind all decisions, including those defining degree of legality. Why trust occupational criminals and their henchmen on any matter?
people in charge…
Regardless of what is said about who's in charge, all those non-elected people who work for, with, behind and around
politicians are of course as much part of the decision making processes as those few, mostly
These beurocrats, henchmen, minions, LOCOs – whatever their individual positions and actions make them, must not be overlooked when we try to see, and grasp, the big political picture(s).
Non-elected come in their thousands compared to the small number of elected, and some are far more in control
than their jobtitles indicate.
In addition there are of course people with all thinkable and unthinkable forms for relationships to members of the wider beurocracy and beyond, and even though relations are not supposed to open for active influencing, you can think for yourself how well borderlines are drawn in practice, to the degree that such lines exist at all.
perspectives … who they work for?
Very few “democratically elected” representatives for the people, actually work in
favor of the people who elected them. They would not dare go against their real masters – big business – for fear of
losing their backing. Thus, most politicians lie all the way from before their first self-promotion speeches all the way to
their graves, in order to get into and keep positions. Without positions and backing they are nothing.
Once they are gone it does not matter what anyone say about them anyway – not much to gain by blaming the dead, and in the mean time it is common policy to blame all but themselves and their masters, for all that became too glaringly wrong to pass under the radar.
Support channeled through to politicians who support their favorite decisions when and where it matters,
works wonders for big business.
Once politicians are in their grasp, big money gets channeled from the masses towards big business, the useful politicians get their share – economically or otherwise, and the circle is complete and closed to outsiders. Can anyone imagine a better deal for big business, than to have a whole bunch of loyal politicians in their pockets?
perspectives … democracy?
In most parts of the world, democracy is reduced to the absolute minimum the mostly self-appointed ruling
classes can get away with without causing widespread riots. And, in many countries even that much democracy is
regarded as too much.
They rather use uniformed LOCOs to crush anything that looks like it may turn into a disturbance, than
bother to listen to people.
Elections are of course also a nuisance in the eyes of the ruling classes. But, as the people are given pretty
limited choices – usually from bad to worse to even worse – these election-shows are allowed to go on every few years to
appease the masses. Whoever they elect from provided lists won't matter much anyway, since all important
elections are done beforehand – when they make the lists.
Anything short of providing truly free elections is done, to make sure the power stays on the “right” hands and the many institutionalised scams are kept going.
Our freedom is delibrately kept pretty limited, both politically and otherwise, despite all nice but empty words in
constitutions and political speeches. Main reason I can get away with statements like the above – at
least in my part of the world, is that everyone knows they are true (no need for conspiracy theories here).
It has become the norm (again), and few bother to even think twice about why we are allowing totally corrupt people to build totally corrupt governments to be in control of our states and regions – not to mention the entire world.
I am not at all impressed over human evolution, as what we see all around us resembles the old “kings and feudalism” systems that most thought we left behind and only stored memories and tales of in history books.
It is all made possible by redefining meaning of words and entire languages, until all that is said and written publicly becomes totally meaningless, and what hasn't been said or written openly anywhere is what really matters when lawyers and other unelected beings formulate governments' future agendas.
For how long at least some of us will have the freedom to write articles like mine, is anybody's guess. I am not particularly optimistic on behalf of mankind, as there does not seem to be any cures for these deadly “all about power” and “greed is good” diseases, and no working vaccines either.
Be all that as it may. I refuse to let the sorry state of governments and other bad factors in our societies, ruin my day or bring down my very personal state of mind. Life is too short…
