CHANGE (Who Cares?)
As they say “..those that can’t remember history are doomed to repeat it.”
That’s a good warning for third-world nations and developing democracies.
New democracies tend only to survive for a limited period anyway.
But what difference does that change make…
Who cares if democracy thrives – somewhere, around the world ?
Who cares if citizens overlook history only to repeat it to their own demise?
Who cares if their statesmen succumb to merely personal gain and politics?
Who cares if politicians use political correctness to spin truth, gain status?
Who cares if leaders take their country into shambles and citizens into panic?
Who cares if in panic, citizens cast their fate into the hands of those traitors?
Who cares if that happens in developing democracies or third-world nations?
Certainly not those in developed countries, who don’t recognize it – at home.
Certainly not those who aren’t clear on what has ‘changed’, or still might!
CHANGE doesn’t have to be beneficial – but benefits can come from REFORM.
The answer to the current financial crisis – or any other local or global crisis is ‘transparency’. That starts with the press and culminates in legislation. Even within the process of legislation, those who are elected may mis-represent the voters.
In DEMOCRACY – it’s your vote that counts,
in Feudalism – it’s your Count that VOTES.
Until and unless each facet of every vote they cast is actually “counted” (line-item voting), they can not be easily held ‘accountable’ (for ‘packaged’ rubbish). That’s why how ‘we’ vote and then how ‘they vote for us’ COUNTS.
And dare we complain or express our dissent?
Do we even get a voice in our own destiny?
Whether we can maintain freedom of the press will influence whether we maintain free democracy. If either is ‘crooked’, one cannot express any opposition since that can be seen as ‘abusive, obscene, threatening, libelous or defamatory’ and castigated or denied by those so ‘offended’. At first it is just ‘politically incorrect’ then Unpopular, then TYRANNY when everyone else (including the press) has been ‘won over’ to ‘one side‘.
So it is vitally important that when you get that
most precious opportunity to vote, remember:
o It is not whether you vote with the majority that may really count
o You might be voting for or with the ‘majority of folks who are wrong…’
or those whose intentions are purely selfish and might entice you to
…democratically vote away your rights to have a democracy.
Without democracy – even your voice will be silenced…
– first by political ‘popularity’
– then by the pressure of the ‘press’
– then by the power of THEIR ‘governance’ !
In some cases that may already be true…
How can we establish and maintain individual freedom – ASK for it
Where can we go to find existing solutions or create new ones – ASK for it
It’s not that difficult – isn’t it about time to:
Question Prior Answers – it’s Liberating!
Answer Current Questions – it’s Empowering!
Create Future Solutions – it’s Fulfilling!
Share these Benefits – it’s SUSTAINABLE!
What’s about YOU? – care to comment?
– dare to COOPERATE?
