the end times are a new beginning

“All the forces in the world are not so powerful as an idea whose time has come.”  [Victor Hugo]

Wake up world!

Modern ‘democracy’ is worlds removed from the original concept. It is supposed to be “a form of government in which all people have an equal say in the decisions that affect their lives.” – The word ‘government’ is derived from the Latin verb gubernare, an infinitive meaning ‘to manage’.

However, unless the country’s management runs referendums (eg.Switzerland), we most definitely don’t have any say, except in choosing the puppet which is going to supposedly ‘represent’ us.

How naive are we to be sold on empty promises, time after time. The political party makes no difference – each simply tailors their blatant lies to a select group of people, bamboozling the masses with what they want to hear until the corporate puppets get to where they can wield their greed.

There is absolutely no intention of keeping any promises that don’t serve the big corporates, since politicians serve those that ‘sponsor’ them into governing positions, NOT the interests of the people who voted them into those.

What is really distressing is that the machinations of the big corporates are for short-term gain which is at the expense of long-term sustainability.

Needless to say, the “democratically” run countries are being grossly mismanaged! The only way to resolve this problem is to create a new system, or at least one that upholds true democracy.

Buckminster Fuller [(July 12, 1895 – July 1, 1983), architect, author, philosopher, futurist, inventor, visionary] summed it superbly:

“You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”
