Our Constitution, Government and Laws are designed like a great and slowly turning ship of state. What this means to me is that we steer our ship towards one set of LOFTY goals and elect the personalities to achieve those goals until it becomes ridiculous.
Next, we start electing those personalities that begin steering the country towards another set of lofty goals to overcome the perceived and actual damages caused by the last set of lofty goals.
We tend to sine wave between Gandhi and General Patton, or King George and George Washington. Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan. George Bush Senior and Barack Obama, pushing limits and embracing fads that come from all over the world.
There is a Caste System in place consisting of The BUSINESS OWNER CLASS, The DEPARTMENT OF STATE CLASS, The PROFESSORIAL CLASS, The OIL CARTEL CLASS, The GUN-HUMAN TRAFFICKING-DRUG-TRAFFICKING-PROSTITUTION CLASS, The PRISON CLASS, The TECH CLASS, The HOMELESS CLASS, The RELIGIOUS CLASS, The HETERO CLASS, The GAY CLASS, The UNEMPLOYMENT CLASS, The UNDEREMPLOYED CLASS, The MILITARY CLASS, The 1% CLASS, The RACIAL CLASS, The LAW ENFORCEMENT CLASS, ILLEGAL CLASS, The IMMIGRANT CLASS, The WORKING CLASS, The UNION CLASS, THE MANAGEMENT CLASS, THE CORPORATE CLASS, THE LEGAL CLASS, THE BANKING CLASS, The RETIRED CLASS, The SOCIAL SECURITY CLASS, AND THE WELFARE CLASS.
Those who can afford TOYS and those who only dream about TOYS. I think you get the idea that we are a diverse CASTE system who have our pecking orders and we bow down to our higher ups as long as it suits our condition of life.
Each CLASS sees the Tyranny perpetrated by other CLASSES. The MONEY FLOWS. The COFFERS swell. LAWYERS are hired. Laws are CHANGED. TAXES are COLLECTED. New GOVERNMENT STYLES ARE ELECTED. New Tyrannies are IMPOSED. Their is never true HARMONY. Our system is one of controlled CHAOS. The ONLY consistency IS CHANGE and PROTESTS OF THE CHANGES.
Now WE ARE HEADING BACK TOWARDS THE FASCISM OF DEREGULATION AND UNION BUSTING and PRIVATIZATION using MARKET FORCES in the NAME OF GOD. We are CURRENTLY IN THE FASCISM OF UNIONIZED INFLATION, ANTI-GOD, GUN CONTROL-GRABBING, IF-IT-FEELS-GOOD-DO-IT and OVER TAXATION chasing BUSINESS overseas form of GOVERNMENT.
The COUNTRY GETS BORED, SATURATED WITH ONE FORM OF EXISTENCE OR ANOTHER SO WE CHANGE OUR CONTROLLERS.
Underneath it all NOTHING REALLY CHANGES, except near the TRANSFORMATION PERIOD when POINTS ARE MADE often at THE EXPENSE OF LIVES, (The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure. Jefferson said rebellion sprouts among the ignorant, and the death of the occasional rebellious dingbat was also the price of liberty.)
If you are in the 1% you can play GOD by throwing MONEY towards SENATORS, CONGRESS, MERCENARIES, BLACK LIVES MATTER, BLACK PANTHERS, MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD, WHITE SUPREMACIST GROUPS, AND 3RD WORLD COUNTRIES, AND ANY CLASS WILL RESPOND. IT’S A BOARD GAME AND WE ARE THE PIECES ON THE BOARD BEING PLAYED. Now there is AI, (ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE.)
IMHO DATA BREACHES aren’t the act of a foreign enemy. THEY ARE ACTS OF THE 1% THROWING MONEY TO PEOPLE IN OTHER COUNTRIES WHO PROVIDE CORPORATIONS, SENATORS, AND CONGRESS WITH DATA they are not suppose to have access to. This allows them to USE COMPUTERS with simultaneous linear equations deriving BREAK EVEN WINDOWS OF OPPORTUNITY THAT CAN MANIPULATE ALL OF THE CLASSES through FEAR AND INTIMIDATION.
How can the 99% STOP THE RISE OF THE MACHINES? How can they gain unity of CAUSES. How can they stop the loss of LIBERTY?
IMHO It STARTS WITH A HANDSHAKE. IT CONTINUES WITH INFORMATION. IT GROWS WITH COMMITMENT. IT SUCCEEDS WITH RESOLVE.
DEFINE THE PROBLEM. ELIMINATE THE IMPOSSIBLE. AND MOVE TOWARD THE SOLUTIONS.
