"United we stand, Divided, we FALL"

"To obtain control over public opinion, it is first necessary to confuse it by the expression from various sides of so many conflicting opinions. Increasing and intensifying the shortcomings of the people in their habits, passions and mode of living, so that no one will be able to collect himself in the chaos, and, consequently, people will lose all their mutual understanding. This measure will serve also in breeding disagreement in all parties, in disintegrating all those collective forces which are still unwilling to submit to us and in discouraging all personal initiative which can in any way interfere with our undertaking."

The currency of the incumbent is to capitalize the status quo into the future.

"The problems that exist in the world today cannot be solved by the level of thinking that created them." -- by Albert Einstein

Sharing will not preserve or enhance a ruling class’s interest.The preservation of privilege requires the exercise of power. The power to inform, or dis-inform. Most media serves as "Tools of the Status-Quo" involved in the Perpetually Rejuvenated Illusion of choice. Decisions, disguised as Democracy-"The Will of the People", DON'T empower the "People", but rather continue the "Privilage" of a few.

Venal motives as well as ideological ones are served by the comprehensive makeover of Schooling, or CITIES, or ECONOMIES (New Rules), or COUNTRIES, and palms incidentally greased in the transition soon find themselves defending it for their own material advantage.

IMO, Politics are Politics, be it School Politics/City Politics/State Politics/Federal Politics... They all dine at the same trough.

Republicans, Democrats, or Republicrats, it doesn't matter. Confucius said: "Don't do to others, what you don't want done to you." In the West, this has been reframed into a directive, more commonly known as the Golden Rule: "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

A society that sacrifices fairness and integrity for profit and power betrays its insensitivity to human needs. The proliferation of material things becomes the measure of progress in living, and man is pitted against woman, worker against employer, individual against community. When wealth occupies a higher position than wisdom, when notoriety is admired more than dignity, when success is more important than self-respect, the culture itself overvalues 'image' and is regarded as narcissistic. That is NOT what we are here for.

The real enemy of peace loving people everywhere is not so easy to define with words like "terrorists" or "radicals". I'm not excusing their actions, but those people are symptoms of the anger, hatred and feelings of hopelessness which exists in abundance in much of the world.

The well lobbied BOZO'S of BOTH camps are playing right into the NEW style WAR that is upon us. It seems to me that the American economy is like the DOT COM boom, an economy of false appearances. The economic ballast (manufacturing) that we USED to have is being replaced by service sector jobs. The GDP is around $10 trillion, of which about 1% is agriculture, maybe 24% industry, the rest is service, and most of this is financial speculation. Basically the USA is a Corporation, and dollars, strictly speaking, are it's shares. The value of a corporation's shares is directly proportional to the profitability of the enterprise. When a corporation is just a service provider and doesn't produce any durable goods, the value of it's shares (Our Dollar) depends on it's CREDIBILITY. How are we doing in the World today?

Either party will serve as "Rulers", and do as "Rulers" do. The present

"Party" has demonstrated it's ability

to DIVIDE both country and world.

Neither party has all the answers.

A united country/world will do more to continue our "Credibility" than further division.

If you think anger, hatred and feelings of hopelessness, are "Cured" by division, think again....

United We Stand, Divided We FALL.
