sad state of affairs
… in the broadest sense imaginable.
Pointing at any particular area where the state of affairs is so much worse than in all other areas so as to warrant a specific note, is literally impossible. It is equally bad across the board – or across the entire world if you like, and no lack of subjects and issues to drive the easily depressed over the edge.
The common factor in all cases is that people are responsible for the state of everything that is bad and sad and so on and so forth in all societies in the world, and that most problems are introduced by people who claim to be serving us “solutions” to problems we may not even have realized that we had. Imagine that…
In short: blaming those who make decisions for all that is wrong, is almost never entirely off the mark. Whether or not it is the front-figures – those who front governments and appear in media, or others lurking around in the leading circles, who are really behind the sad states of affairs, is another matter. Pays to figure out that “minor” detail as early as possible, in order to rectify things while there is still time to prevent total disasters.
For a hint of who in the most destructive circles to neutralize first; “those who demand
respect do not deserve any, and those who deserve respect do not demand any”.
Gives the more sensible among us a good starting point for restoring the state of affairs to one of good health and prosperity in any and all areas within our reach.
state authorized distractions
In order to keep the hoi polloi focusing anywhere but at what really matters, all big
and small incident anywhere in the world will be exploited to that effect.
News desks are already experts at blowing all kinds of nothingness out of proportion in order to catch our attention. Thus, they do not have to be told, nudged, or paid much in order to do more of what they naturally do every single day anyway.
Those behind the most destructive policies on the local and global arena, will continue to back all distractions
as long as they need them as cover for their many shady activities, and immediately brand them as “fake” the
moment they are disturbed by them.
It is not really possible to overestimate the negative impact bad people in leading positions can have on our societies. Human beings can always be worse than anyone but their equally bad peers can imagine, and the worst often end up in positions of power.
To most of these creatures life is dominated by acquiring and holding on to personal power and wealth, of which they will never get enough regardless of how much death and destruction they leave in their tracks.
leaders – blessed and cursed
Some expect their leaders to provide the right answer to every question and solutions for every problem, and will support their leaders
with their lives if need be.
Some blame their leaders for not asking the right questions and not dealing with the right problems, and want those leaders replaced.
Guess what; the act of supporting leaders, or replacing them through more or less peaceful means, have never made much of
a difference anywhere in the world at any time in human history. One batch of leaders is unlikely to be any better
than another, regardless of how they present themselves or are being presented by others.
From “democracies”, via “kakistocracies”, to “dictatorships” … it is all a game that is kept running on unrealistic beliefs, hopes and dreams, and through terror, for the sake of keeping the general population from revolting while they are being exploited.
Yes, there have been exceptions from the rules over the centuries. A few slightly better leaders, and many that appear to have been far worse than average. For the most part any differences we can point at today depend more on who wrote the relevant chapters in the history books that are kept from various historic periods though, than on any real differences in leadeships and their mainly negative impacts on the lives of the general population.
With enough state authorized criminals – police and alike – as guards, leaders of all shapes, colors and shades and their
followers everywhere, have often taken the opportunity to test how far they can stretch their powers without risking their own
lives. Other people's lives and wellbeing are rarely ever taken into account.
That many of these opportunists throughout history have not survived their “test-runs” in good shape, should be well known. However, there will always pop up new candidates, who think they can do so much better for themselves. No need to wish them “good luck” on their way down the various drains, as they have tended to draw too many innocent people down with them.
so, what about it…
One does not even have to form questions about the sad state of affairs everywhere …
“ and the fool on the hill sees the world spinning round ”
… as none of it has to matter in the short time-span from birth to grave for any of us.
Can form basis for some very interesting conspiracy theories for those who choose to put their minds into it though, and,
again; chances are that most conspiracy theorists are not entirely wrong.
It is of course quite legitime to not give a damn in any of this. Most people land on or around that apparently quite passive
reaction to most of what goes on outside their own circles, same as those who are, or want to be, inside certain other circles.
That is right; nearly everything is defined in circles, groups and classes. Human mentality is to sort all others by whether they are found to belong to this, or that, specific group of a social, political or other nature.
The value of such defining and sorting of fellow human beings is questionable at best and plain wrong at worst, but most will nevertheless define both themselves and others by who they hang out with, i.e.: what circle they belong to.
Not belonging to any group isn't an option, as that simply does not compute in the minds of the most diligent “sorters”. No-one is allowed to exist outside their (often pretty limited) definition ranges.
In its simplest form we have the “those who are not with us are against us” forms, and in a slightly more advanced form it has become “what we can define we can also control”. Anyone with even the slightest knowledge about human history, and interest in how the human mind works, can expand on those “definitions” and draw their own conclusions.
Me … I'll stick to the gist of the (not entirely correct) “fool on the hill” quote above, interpreted whichever way anyone wants to twist and turn it. Makes it easier to keep the oversight in a mostly insane world, and living in it for a while more fun.
