About myself and everyone else.
I’m not a big fan of politics. In my honest opinion it’s an unnatural thing.
The expression of trying to herd cats come to mind.
I know how my opinion can change in a matter of months. When the truth is known about something you are able to learn at an astonishing rate. It is only through obfuscation the true nature of certain matters that the truth becomes distorted. It is due to this distortion that learning is prohibited because things simply don’t make sense.
Depending on the type of person you are the outcome of the above can either be,
1 – You accept what others tell you, take it for granted, live by it and conform. If you don’t have children, great for you because it’s easier to lie to yourself in saying that it doesn’t matter.
3 – You don’t accept what others tell you until you find out the truth, this comes with a steep a difficult learning curve due to those people who needs you to conform to a certain believe in order to maintain power. Resources also make it difficult, we cannot always afford to follow leads or investigations as the average joe don’t always have the financial ability to do this.
This is exactly why the current system don’t make sense to me and not just politics but our way of living. The single most important question for me is how to attain enlightenment. This cannot be done through others. If it cannot be given to your by a hundred or a thousand people you also won’t be able to achieve it from one.
Thus if you cannot achieve enlightenment through others, why should you be controlled by others. The trick is that during each individuals search someone has to be there to maintain the peace. Then again , politics and peace are mutually exclusive.
I’ve heard recently that 1/3 of the world is unemployed. I can’t imagine that 2 billion + people can’t figure out that you don’t need to be employed to live. It’s due to some skew perception that this is not achievable.
This brings me full circle, perception.
When there is no fear, perception can change drastically.
I think any politician who makes a promise no matter what the promise is, is naive.
The only thing politicians should be good for is divulging knowledge and the truth.
If they give this on equal measure to other false promises, the world would be a much better place.
