Societies undoubtedly need stability to function. It is essential for a healthy society or system to be able to plan and prepare for the future on many different essential levels. But there comes a time when stability becomes stagnation. And even worse, when the stagnation is preserved and used solely to further the interest of those who have learned to become successful parasites on society.
Preserved at any cost. By any method. Even to the point of killing its host.
Which is precisely what is happening now. The forces of todays Status Quo gained power during one existential threat, the arms race of the Cold War. In attempting to preserve their power at any cost, they have perpetuated a culture of war. Their de facto partners, the oil companies, have lent their weight to the effort. Not only are their goals of creating a status quo that benefits each of them the same, they are also in a partnership to use the weapons and influence of the Military Industrial Complex to invade a sovereign but relatively weak country to steal its oil. Again the cost just do not matter to them, nor do the consequences.
Not the cost in human life and suffering.
Not the cost to the economy and well being of their puppet government.
And not the costs to the planet and all of her peoples.
To further their ends, they have essentially bought a big chunk of the government of the United States. Convincing key elements on both sides of the aisle that their interests are not only the same interests of the government, a government that was conceived of as for the People….but that they are actually MORE important, more important than the government and The People.
The parasite has convinced essential and powerful parts of the host that the host cannot live without it. Even while it is killing it. And the entire planet.
There is an old saying: There are four boxes in democracy, The Soap Box, The Ballot Box, The Jury Box, and The Ammunition Box….use them in that order.
We are coming up to an incredibly important election, and the choice is becoming increasingly clear and easy. It appears that there is only one candidate who is not patently a part of the parasite. That does not mean he isn’t….but the other two are clearly, and even more clearly after recent statements and actions, aligned with the parasitical forces we must defeat. To the point where even though I have tired to keep out of the candidate infighting, I am forced to comment on it.
Voting for Obama may not end the parasitical relationship of the MIC and the oil companies to our government. We simply cannot really know until he is in office. But in combination with what could have been seen before as mere hawkish positioning to overcome the perception of female weakness in a male dominated society, the tactics that Hillary Clinton is using to attempt to obtain power are a clear indication that she embraces the parasite on a fundamental level.
But if it is possible to use the ballot box to fight against the forces that are destroying our nation and the planet, the choice of how to use it has now become very clear.
