We The People,… are we worthy of Democracy?
All over the Planet Authoritarian rule is on the rise.
What is the reason for this retreat into protectionism and nationalism? Why, has the system of Democracy lost it’s appeal? Is it not the best system we have at present for basic human dignity and civil rights? Why would people freely choose to step back into the dark ages of fascism & nationalism? There are many underlying causes we can pin-point, however the most obvious one is the polarizing force of failed trickle-down-economics and capitalism. They have divided people by increasing inequality, false austerity programs and self-induced economic crisis.
We let ourselves be lured into empty and unfounded dividing discussions on social media. All so eager to ventilate our frustrations, we actually play into the cards of the financial-elite and start fighting one-another?! Over the most silly subjects and issues we foul-mouth and stimulate the divide. Obviously we have learned nothing from history. This is ancient Roman and Machiavellian knowledge. Rule by divide still works after hundreds of years. Why,…? Because you are all too stupid to enjoy the benefits of a healthy Democracy. Democracy needs maintenance and vigilance. It does not stay sound and healthy by itself, it needs the people to come together for a common goal & purpose. This is a Fact!!!
Still you all think in terms of Left or Right wing Democratic parties, or Conservatives against progressive thinkers. This only breeds more radicalism and even extremism. Extremism does not create itself, it is a reaction to growing inequality.
In the meantime your so called chosen representatives do not represent you, but are simply looking for a nice job in the private sector, worn down by all the industry lobbyists that constantly surround them. Politicians have been selling-out the Environment, Foodsafety and your Health for a few short-term profit-margins and their corporate seats. They are plunging the entire World and Mankind into an ocean of false security and rising tensions and pollution, only because they do not come together and make the appropriate decisions that need to be made for our common collective futures. Politicians are over-payed and over-valued and lack decisive action. They should stick to bookkeeping and supporting infrastructural works & logistics, leaving daily lives and the rule of law to the judges and justice systems. They definitely should stop meddling so much in everybody’s daily lives creating more problems than solving them, dragging us all down into Police-States with their unfounded Panic-Politics. We should make it so that politicians can be held accountable for their mistakes and this goes for CEO’s of transnational corporations as well. We need Corporate-accountability as well as Political-accountability. Where are the cases against polluting Multi-Nationals, Chemical Giants and Energy suppliers. Where is their accountability?
Where is a real International-Court-Off-Law to punish Crimes-Against-Humanity? If we as a World do not solve these outstanding issues we will drag the entire World into chaos and all will suffer! We-The-People should stop making the same mistakes as the politicians, ventilating and meddling in affairs we do not know nothing about. Educate yourselves first or shut the.. Up!
The levels of frustration have reached unprecedented levels, so you all need to come together on the main issues and move away from an economic tug of war between nations.
Economic-warfare will kill us all and Economic Growth can not go on forever without hurting other Nations & People in the process.
You the people need to make sure that rising technical know-how benefits all in the World and not just a few. If that means revolutions, demonstrations or getting hurt in the process, let it be so! Because what we are doing NOW has an expiration date. We need to move away from this doomsday thinking into systems that create rather than destroy. We have the knowledge and just need to implement it. We can have clean water, food, sanitation and shelter for all within the next fifty years. But only if we move away from the ignorant way we are all behaving at present. At present we are unworthy of a common shared Democratic & positive future. We-The-People is at present an empty phrase at best. It is and has been used for centuries to move us apart and unless we find ways to learn from our past mistakes and find common ground, we will plunge this our home planet into oblivion.
So the choices are clear: to all you junkies and slaves of the system caught-up in games of meaningless fear and intimidation.
Show to your children that you are the grown-ups you pretend to be!
Stop to overestimate your individual intelligence and combine the knowledge of ages into working-models that can benefit our entire species.
It Can Be Done!
