It’s stupid that we only get upset about politics corruption and the personal “failings” of politicians when they’re shoved right in our faces day after day.
We can’t figure for ourselves that politicians fuck and a get high, or that corporate leaders are not concerned with healthy, safety, sustainability, or the world’s populations, or that this war will be just as bad as the last?
If you’re smart, you’re already against the next war.
If you’re smart, you’re against every candidate they could come up with.
If you’re smart, you know that policies and manifestos and charters and rules and law will never touch the power of money, nor those who hold the lion’s share of that power.
And you must have figured out that we need to address the root causes of things like drug abuse, the flow of drugs into North America, the political an corporate corruption you could by now set your watch by, and the apathy and mediocrity of the people tasked with fixing this situation: the many citizens in lazy, numbed dereliction of their democratic duties.
Please don’t go back to sleep.
