So what if they lose? They’ve got theirs, and they don’t really know any poor people. The two senators blocking for the Dems weren’t ballyhooed from the gitgo by their peers or the media. No passion. They made like it was a struggle to negotiate. They just wanted to waste time until they can lose.
Necessity is the mother of invention. These guys have no real necessity. Our leaders aren’t inventive. They’re not even that smart. They’ve let their materialism feed the military industrial complex until now all life on the planet is at risk.
Democracy can not be owned, but Capitalism keeps trying to buy it. At the same time, mainstream media assumes no systemic problems or options unless it is to discuss the threat of Socialism.
Any chance that it was a military threat went with the Soviet Union.
Socialism, like all governments, must be transparent and malleable. Capitalism cannot be unregulated, or you end up with one big company. Socialism is required to some degree or another.
Imperfection is threatened by a better idea. Problems are threatened by solutions and cling to fear. Fear interferes with the intellect. The intellect is our strength and the heart of humanity. We are doomed without it.
We must appreciate being blessed with an intellect. We cannot be threatened by ideas.
It’s easier for the imperialist to have a desperate class who’ll do anything for a job. It also helps if they don’t realize that there is enough to go around, and for fear and hatred to keep them from getting together.
Getting together. That’s the danger of Socialism, to the anti-social status quo who “patriotically” scream that it will take over the country. Sure. We’ll take over ourselves, with the obscene excesses and needless gaps.
