Firstly, if “We the People” were the primary motivator for politicians to “get things done,” cannabis would have been legalized the moment we hit 60% approval rating. It would mean that the majority of the population would be in favor of something. Politicians would have to respond in kind and begin changing the laws to suit the expectations of the voters.
This would be how it should work.
But you see, the big bluff of government is that while they claim they represent “We the People” they truly are in the pockets of “We the Persons”. When 38 sitting U.S. senators have stock in the pharmaceutical industry and making laws that benefit their donors, that is an example of “We the Persons” being served.
But more importantly what we need to desperately understand is that this separation is the only true separation in society we should worry about. The “persons” want to keep the “people” fighting, which is why they continually sow seeds of division. They want people to fight about race, about privileges, about sex, about every little thing in their lives — as long as they aren’t aware that there are only two classes in society.
I think someone who summed it up pretty nicely was the late and great comedian George Carlin on his bit, “It’s a big club, and you ain’t in it!”
But there’s a reason. There’s a reason. There’s a reason for this, there’s a reason education sucks, and it’s the same reason that it will never, ever, ever be fixed. It’s never gonna get any better. Don’t look for it. Be happy with what you got. Because the owners of this country don’t want that. I’m talking about the real owners now, the real owners, the big wealthy business interests that control things and make all the important decisions.
Forget the politicians.
The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. You don’t. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations. They’ve long since bought and paid for the senate, the congress, the state houses, the city halls, they got the judges in their back pockets and they own all the big media companies so they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear. They got you by the balls. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying, lobbying, to get what they want. Well, we know what they want.
They want more for themselves and less for everybody else, but I’ll tell you what they don’t want: They don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don’t want well informed, well educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that. That doesn’t help them. That’s against their interests. That’s right. They don’t want people who are smart enough to sit around a kitchen table to figure out how badly they’re getting screwed by a system that threw them overboard 30 years ago. They don’t want that.
