REVOLUTION!

February 25, 2008

When you talk of REVOLUTION to my mind, you are not only talking of changing the faces that occupy government!Revolution is changing not only the administrators of political government but changing the economic system to the opposite of what it was!!I see rebellion on the horizon, but I do not see revolution!This is so because their is a lack of revolutionary leaders and a lack, of revolutionary vision!People want change and they are grasping at defective straws that will take them nowhere, and cure nothing!They are experiencing “future shock!” because of our advanced technology and the global economy!The “Nation State and the traditions of the past are rapidly becoming no longer relevant in a world where a oligarchy of rich dudes want to own and run the world at the expense of nations, culture, future generations and their environment!The world is rapidly becoming a global village and nothing will stop that global transformation!What should be considered is who will be in charge of this global village! …Should it be a small oligarchy of unbridled and unrestrained capitalists that will destroy everything in it’s path as it gobbles up resources and people to satisfy it’s appetite for money and power!Or will it be the people as a whole that governs this global village from the bottom up instead of from the top down!Where are the leaders that can see the future and point the way?

Economic Systems!

February 22, 2008

Democracy can exist under any kind of an administration,  Socialism or Capitalism, as long as the internal conditions are not a threat to a system’s economic base!  
If the internal conditions within a Socialist or a Capitalist environment are a threat to the economic foundation of a political system,  …that political system will circle the wagons and put in place a dictatorship of the capitalist class.  This is defined as fascism! …
In the Soviet Union you had a Dictatorship of the working class!
The conflict between a socialist and a capitalist economy exists because they are opposites!   Socialists believe in social planning and a planned economy, and capitalists believe in private enterprise and no government planning!
The conflict between the two systems has nothing to do with government or the administration of society! It has everything to do with economics!
The establishing and securing it’s economic base is what every economic system from the beginning of time has always attempted to do!

 

Tribalism/Religion/Nationalism

February 17, 2008

Before their was Nationalism their was Tribalism and the psychology of tribes was that outsiders were the enemy, and was inferior to our tribe, and only our tribe should conquer the world and make those inferior outsiders our slaves! Pride in ourselves and prejudice against everyone else was their battle cry! Then the tribes made alliances with other tribes so that they can conquer a number of tribes in other regions and make them their slaves! To keep order among the allied tribes, treaties were made and nation states were formed that kept the peace among the different tribes! That what was different was accepted and tolerated! Prejudice became a bad word because it interfered with the unity of the GREATER GOOD! The RELIGIOUS RIGHT are still stuck in the TRIBAL attitudes of the distant past! They wear the CLOAK of religion to attempt to give themselves respectability! It is only a cloak and their real religion is to return back to the family or to the tribal past of not trusting anyone and having wars to prove our pride and show our prejudice!
