Ask yourself the question. “Do you know of any financially struggling politicians?”
Election time comes along, if you are lucky to live in what’s referred to a ‘democratic’ society!! We as law abiding, taxpaying citizens, listen to the manifestos of the ‘wanna be’ political parties that wish to Govern us. They usually shout about, better health care, better income for the elderly, better infrastructure to make our lives easier, lower taxes....hahahhaa, yes we’ve heard it all before.
There is a huge misconception about the word GOVERNMENT. We as people have clearly forgotten that these individuals who are voted into this position are placed in a position of trust. It wasn’t that long ago that the sun shone out of Obama’s arse. From what I have read lately, all that emerges is thunder & hot air. The most powerful militarised nation on the planet spends more money on war than any other essential commodity and I feel that the people of America are getting a tad pissed off about it.
It’s not just the good ‘ol US of A, it’s global. Even the best intent from our once great political leaders becomes clouded with self entitlement financially and the egotistical stench of power. Designer suits, limousines, five star cuisine, leather seats, private jets, expense accounts.......two words spring to mind...parasitical louts!
As the good folk who live on this planet, don’t we find ourselves sucked into debt, which is controlled by the banks, which in turn are controlled by government who in turn are controlled by the people we put there? We are on THE SYSTEM ! We have a number and there are records of everything we do in our lives. Our work, how much we are paid, our political preferences. Even our sexual & religious preferences are on the system. Filling in forms and having to disclose some of our private opinions, our race and our income are compulsory. If you don’t abide, you don’t get the service you are trying to apply for.
When we falter or break a ‘law’, which is a rule made by the continually changing manifesto of what it was we voted for, we are ‘flagged’. A big red mark appears on the system. Did you realise that bar-coding enables the system to even see what books you may take out from a library. There is no freedom in the modern world. If you make a rash statement through a media network you will be flagged.
I travelled through Heathrow airport not so long ago and witnessed people having their eyes scanned. I was horrified to say the least. How technical, how intrusive is The System becoming. Personally I don’t give a shit what Government thinks of me or this piece of casual literary opinion. I write songs about this and other ridiculous truths, it’s how I deal with it. Music has been one medium which has exposed the atrocities, which the System has never quite been able to control.
Next time you are filling in forms and being told you have to...think about whether the information you are giving is actually necessary for what it is you are seeking. Please good people of the earth, start to question the governance around you and ask yourself a simple question...GOVERNANCE OR CONTROL?
