Theres something wrong with all of em.
After the War there was a gradual change from citizens who wanted to serve the people and their country, to businessmen who wanted to be politicians for the hell of it and professional politicians, people who have never done an honest days work in their lives. We have all gone from governments who serve to governments who rule.
In the future, there will be a global civil war. Society will be reshuffled, I am sure of it. Twenty years time, no more.
We have to wait until todays generation of youth reaches the age of 50 before some of them can influence things. Sure there are ratbags, but I have great faith in the youth of today. It will be those born in the 90s who will have the ability to change society like never before. Clean and green is on the way, and of course all the social policies you like. maybe its worth a try because nothings working. Before they get in, the world will have gone to hell. Its halfway there already. Politics has gotten us into this mess, not religion.
The ultimate end of the Capitalist system is meant to be economies of scale that end up in free production and free sale. Well you dont have to be Einstein to realise politicians have proved that wrong, supporting dud companies and their mates for graft and corruption. Corporate greed fueled by back room deals and lobbyists has ruined the western world.
The aim of those in power today is to produce the sci fi horror story of two classes of society. Rich and poor. Where do you think all the trillions of dollars have gone? They havent been burnt in a fire, someones got them in their pocket.
As a society, we need to stop voting for these besturds who are in it for themselves and their mates. We need to rise up and reject the dumbing down of society by the media. We need to go back to basics at schools and teach people to think.
We need to have the technology of the 21st century but the moral values and personal ambitions, dreams and standards of respect of the 1940s or 50s or even the 60s. Things went to custard in the 80s and have gotten worse.
Governments rule so much of our lives, so many taxes and fees and charges and licenses and general interference, I doubt anyone could go through life without "ending up in the system" for one reason or another. Just think of all the government departments that exist that we could do without? Life would go on as normal if 60% of government employees all over the world vanished. I check if your cat is registered, you check if I am registering everything, you report to she who checks if you made any errors and she reports to he who ckecks if all the shes in the state have done their job. He reports to someone who takes his statistics. Theres a team of people to check in the field if pussie has a tag, a team of people who take away pus if it hasnt got one, another team to care for them, another team to deal with the release, another team who register it and another team who checks to see if it is registered and on and on the cycle goes. People who do nothing, but whos result generates a business funded by revenue from the government.
Look at your tax bill. I know I could walk into any government office, remove one photocopier and say thats my taxes times 5.
The government says that all there $billions makes the economy go around. Well how about you go away and stop taking my money in taxes and I spend it on things I want to make the economy go around?
Governments should build roads and schools and hospitals and public infrastructure, provide security for the people, health, education, some pensions, protect natural resources and not much else. Most of the rest is just rubbish we dont need and can do without.
