My goodness, this country is absolutely terrified. Terrified of the other side. Terrified of anything new. Scared shitless of attempting to create something different.
Fear tactics are running the country into the ground. Its working like a charm
Imagine if the media reported Employment, like instead of us usually being at 95% employment, we are now at 90%. Would that change the mood? I think so.
Imagine if the media, instead of pushing fear, told the people that it is not hard to start new parties and get ballot access, that campaigning can be done by anyone and everyone. Would change our political mindset? I think so.
Imagine if instead of constantly comparing things to their polar opposite, the media instead focused on comparing them to what they were advertised as. Would this help us to understand what accountabiliy is? I think so.
We need to wake the hell up. The solutions to these problems are very simple, but they need a catalyst. They need the people to realize they have had enough, they are going to stop relying on help and start creating themselves. Stop waiting and start doing.
"Never doubt the ability of a small group of people to affect change. Indeed it is how it has ALWAYS happened"....Meade.
