A recent political cartoon in the Arnprior Chronicle-Guide/EMC (The two local freebie newspapers merged last winter) shows a guy on a telephone saying this: “I’ll stop believing that all politicians are dishonest when you stop believing that we’re all stupid.”
— The whole world sometimes looks like a rabid political cartoon gone bad.
I’ve been listening to people on a radio talk show arguing over what the definitions of leftists vs rightists really are.
Were Soviet style ‘Communists’ really fascists pretending to believe that the people they were herding around were all created equal (to them?)
Do ‘Free Market’ types have an agenda? What might that agenda be? “Let the bankers rule the world and manipulate everybody into debt so they can call all the shots”?
Have the definitions of all types and forms of economics, governments and philosophies been put through a double speak grinder? Like a meat grinder that spits out b.s. where nineteen eighty-four type double speak rules? Love is Hate? War is Peace? Peace is Hell?
Are all forms of government (at least all the ones we’re aware of?) necessarily psychotic?
Do we have to be out of our minds to allow anybody, elected or appointed or whatever…. tell us what to do?
—Hey- Let me know what you think….
