The fatal flaw in human nature stems from the fact that with our eyes on the front of our heads we have a large deficit in our field of view. But as with any social animal with enough of us as a collective we can all help to lessen the impact on the individual with our constant scanning. Any solitary creature is at a disadvantage when harried by a collective, and will eventually be run down and overwhelmed. The bear the caribou that is segregated from the herd are just two that are prime examples of the effectiveness of the wolf packs power. Even if we change continents and look at the successfulness of the hyena, and the lion show how a selective social cohesion can be successful in provision for the group. The herd is prey and will always remain prey to the predator. Unlucky for some, But the Buffalo recently proved to over twenty million viewers that the tide can be changed and the predator can be run off. The shoe is now firmly on the other foot and we all know it.
The trouble with the perceptions of a single organism that is allowed to lead, is it loses the collective input, so any leader is better informed with a collective around them, the final decision is a singular event of better judgment, but the information to be acted on still filters to the top by avenues and biases and faiths. This is just formed from the collectives that have been traditionally attracted to the power base. Fact and figures are tempered by prejudices and filtered by biases, this interference means that in this day and age a good leader must understand the restrictions of each source and know its biases and prejudices before he can even begin to make an informed decision. The man on the street and the layman sees from the ground up and doesn’t have the insight into the avenues of power and doesn’t see the restrictions of how information is delivered.
The religious right will always campaign for a supposed majority, but if we look at how Obamas religious faith is now at odds with his political perspective we begin to understand that the state as an organism is only interested in control and power, and has no place for human compassion or forgiveness. So the religious beliefs of a man are reduced to appear that he is a heartless politician that used religious standing to progress up the greasy pole of precarious power. So instead of forgiveness a very Christian concept we see instead a state that is only interested in punishment and retribution. Hell hath no fury as they say as a dictator thwarted by good sense, we can never use the same set of rules as the enemy or we just become them. Would somebody explain that to the isolated head of nations please.
The last few weeks in the lead up to the so called democratic elections in Iran have been yet another west end farce to preserve the seat of power as it has stood in the west, without one mention that the western system is collapsing under the strain of, mismanagement, poor planning and the innate inability to balance the books and work to a set budget. Projects always over run and always are over budget because the system still cant even after more than seventy years of this reality being the facts of life of the established mechanism account for this unknown quantity in their ability to make calculations.
Amazing for a system that is supposed to be a commercially driven mechanism that has changed very little since its inception out of the limited vision of the Kirkcaldy economist, Mr Adams. Yet in the face of the historical evidence projects are still over run, under priced and beleaguered and beset with incidental problems. That ham string any commercial project to an over inflated hike from conception to completion.
The original solution of pick a number based on hours times workforce times wages, then double it or treble it, a very basic bookies tactic. After all it’s still a bunch of crooks at the helm, as far as the man on the street can perceive given his lack of all of the facts, the present west end farce has just added to this commonly held belief that. All leaders couldn’t run a successful piss up in a brewery. But according to the press they could all organize a great party or orgy in a whorehouse. Wonder what their real motivation is?
Sixty percent of the voting populace still have the good sense to never vote, imagine ever giving these socially blinded and retarded people a full autonomy, absolute power corrupts absolutely as we have seen with this limited governments abuse of power exactly why we limit them to forty percent, and the elected to be representative of one in five people. Any governmental body that actually gets a landslide would be unstoppable in session and would have no opposition to temper their power plays and to resist their own greed and stave of a feeding frenzy of the unrestricted access to power, resources and wealth. Even Iran has reflected this universal truth and restricted the greedy in society to forty percent.
The present voting system is about as close to a formality as it has ever been in history, the status quo is a universal truth and is held in check by the unconscious intent of the silent majority. The vote has lost its true power because the corrupt cannot help themselves and coupled with the arrogant belief that the end justifies their means, the peoples will and faith is all that can be maintaining this Mexican stand off. The American railroading of another nation to fit its perceptions and to adopt it’s failing system is being seen for what it truly is for a change. The home forces are all declaring a turnaround in the finances and that the recession is over is a timely and helpful piece of propaganda that looks the part when bolstered by the new influx of taxes by the beleaguered masses that still only have a forty percent minority for the base of power. The excuses of terrorism have never materialized, the drug trade is to lucrative to be left to a minority backwater of a country to run after all its an international big business, that will have to be brought into the fold at some later point and guess who wants that control.
Ten fifteen years down the line when the powers that be have to face the fact that dictating what we spend on isn’t working and they must capitalize on the power of the cash businesses that the majority maintain, black or otherwise. Even if that means changing present legislation to validate the standpoint of control over banishment and take their ten percent of a real cash industry that the masses will insist on defending against any imposed utopian cliché from the kindergarten nice view of utopia viewpoint of the goody, goody lefties and impotent Christian bodies, has to be tempered by the hard line facts and figures the majority support an administration, one that is dictated to and does not take the powerless position of the tail end trying to wag the dog.
The declaration of liars, all liars will happily declare their versions and stress their points but the trained ear or the weary hard put upon souls of oppression will know the truth when they hear it or when they see it. The home grown press and media is starting a new propaganda of the first green shoots of recovery, the corner has been turned is the new clarion call, cant just be the tax dollars being flush in your pockets now can it guys. These declarers of lies will stand firmly behind the headlines and power that feeds them and will toe the party line, but the clock is ticking, the dollar is so powerful that the sixty percent will begin to understand that with-holding it has more of an affect than any cross in any liars parchments.
The cash in the system is minimal as they try and move us to a credit based savings system, just enough to keep a cash flow for the ones not in the new imposed system, but if the sixty percent ever decide collectively to keep say twenty to sixty dollars out of the system and do it say at five dollars a month it will have an immediate effect and it will be to widely distributed to have a point of retaliation by the system aggressive control mechanisms. Then when the print your own press runs of a bit more pulp, the sixty percent should strip the cash out of the flow again to reign them in. Quantative easing is just self-pleasing. History has proved that this tactic is the beginning of the end for a sick and ailing society, ask any social anthropologist or historian.
Just a few decades ago you could find in your change an old fiver worn and the worse for wear from being passed around, the same was true of the coins in the pocket, that is the pre decimal ones anyway, shillings, pennies etc they were worn with use, but now look at the money in the pocket so much of it is new, coins are not as worn, may people put coins in jars and they are out of circulation for the duration of their captivity. New notes are printed ever few years and the worst of all are the new monopoly money notes with the pointless images on them. Very new age artistic, and that doesn’t reflect the point of money at all. Money is after all the token that we use to represent our time, effort and ability to earn. Not at all how a banker sees it they have a much more abstract view hence the new age printed versions of cash.
The pound in your pocket or the dollar in your hand is no longer the item to yen for. In this much-devalued present day where money isn’t worth the paper it is printed on and the coinage does not reflect the wealth of the nation, but now simply artistically reflects the abstract views of the custodian of that wealth. When emerging nations are again holding back from joining an obviously sick societies need to perpetrate its own upper echelons status quo entirely at the expense of the voting majorities will or faith.
You can hang on to the cash in hand and arrest their progress or you can place a cross on a ballot paper from corner to corner as a spoiled vote it must be counted and will show the nations will for none of the above. This is the one character that isn’t on the ballot paper. This spoiled vote must still be accounted for and therefore has a valid place in the systems mechanism. The fact that it is a cross, and that this is the prescribed means of casting a vote it must be counted, so do not spoil the paper or fudge the vote with scribbles or picking all the candidates or even just more than one. Or you could just hang on to the cash in hand, either one will reign in the headlong rush of the charge of the light brigade into the jaws of death, and they will not be able to drag us with them into the abyss.
Change as dictated by the powers that be is just more of the same under a new façade, the more it changes the more it remains the same in their hands as they only have one agenda and it is all about maintaining there position at the top of their smelly dung heap. The true power for change is in our hands, the future is in our hands and not theirs for without your proxy and without a cash flow just where can they go. To hell in a hang basket, or is that just a hung government. So hang em high, to suffer and fly in the face of the realities of our collective truth. None of them are fit to rule and they just keep on proving it. And now that thanks to the information highway the truth is finally out there even in third world countries, news from this neck of the woods is getting through and insights into their realities is also filtering back to us, we may finally be becoming a unified world instead of a divided and conquered set of diverse nations as kept in place by the established rulers.
More food for thought, a meal can satisfy, and a banquet will gorge and bloat. A feast of the wrong type will fatten the calf, while meals of the right kind will keep the bull well for life.
