The Logic Of Voting

This is a question I answered on a public forum where I am apparently still welcome and for now uncensored .What good does it do to vote when those we elect are not the ones in charge anyway?

Unwittingly, popular opinion is that if we vote for the right candidates, that will bring about the changes we are looking for. How often has that logic produced positive results? If thinking like that has never worked in the past, What are the chances it will work now? Surely there is a reason this rationality has not worked up until now. Continue reading

Who Gets To Suffer?

One thing that is helpful in figuring out why things turnout the way they do is ordinary thinking. There seems to be a moratorium
on that activity.

As far as I know, I am the only person in the world who has pondered such things as – who came up with the Corona Virus response? One hint is given just by making an observation as to who and what is profiting greatly as a result.

Another unasked question is: Where does the incentive to censor information that is deemed not good for the masses to hear, see or read come from? Do tech companies have a natural incentive to protect people from being exposed to what they alone deem harmful? In all of history, corporations have never taken this posture before. So, what is unique about today’s world that makes this necessary? Are ordinary citizens too stupid to process meaningful information? Well, we use the jury system. Ordinary citizens
seem to do just fine with deciding complex legal arguments.

All kinds of bad things are happening to ordinariy people in this economy while corporate profits are sound and GDP is acceptable. It is really hard to find out just how many citizens get paid by any and all government entities, including teachers, military, contractors, fire fighters and others.

Today, I made note of where the essence of just my neighbors on my street comes from. This is a very conservative neighborhood.

Here is what I found. EMS Technician and military nurse, plumbing contractor, retired air force, firefighter, USPS, retired general, retired colonel, civil service,
restores old cars. Each of these folks consider themselves to be staunch conservatives. This does not even include what public private partnerships suck out of the overall
economy.

Now notice who is suffering. Absolutely no one that I can see other than the self employed, unemployed or retired and eaten up by inflation.

Unless one believes in magic, collapse of the entire system, government, economy and way of life is the only possible outcome.

Who is Suffering and Not Suffering?
The graph below illustrates how suffering is
distributed throughout the population.

 

The balance of political power is concentrated at the top of the income ladder. At the very top, enormous profits are being made at the level of billionaire and Americans who directly serve the upper class. The living standards of those who work for government have not changed. This is
also the case with respect to all whose essence comes from receiving a government check of another kind. So, who is suffering? That is a group that is not in the loop in terms of political power and benefits.
