Our political system as it stands is much less about democracy and much more about how to give the illusion of democracy whilst creating ever increasing levels of inequality. Those with the most money have the most power, and they use it to control the ones we elect into power. The very ones who are supposed to represent the people.
The system ensures only a small handful of people and parties can get into power, ensuring whoever wins it, it is their interests they will serve and not the peoples.
Politicians in the modern corporate controlled world of the night are more like trained actors, who are merely put there to give the illusion of the choice of power. The politicians are trained to speak in such a way as to bend the truth, and convince you that they represent you and are doing their best, whilst actually doing the opposite.
We should always look at their actions and not just their words.
The saying ‘if you don’t vote you have no right to a say’ is propaganda spread by those who control the voting system. They understand it’s the votes that keep them in power, keep them in control, and without your vote they have no legitimacy.
By withholding your vote, you are voting for something new, something different, and it shows you have no faith left in a system that is built on lies. If you continue to vote for corrupt officials, you are saying “it’s better to vote for corruption than to look to change the system and make it fair” This is because people fear the unknown, fear change and have feared having their own power in their own hands.
“A people that elect corrupt politicians, imposters, thieves and traitors are not victims... but accomplices” - George Orwell
Our current political system does for governing what religions of exclusivity do for spirituality, or the economic system (capitalism) does for fair wealth distribution. As George Orwell also said: -
“Political language is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.”
A war on poverty actually means a war on the poor, a war on terror actually means creating more terrorists, a war on drugs means pushing big pharma drugs on the population.
Politicians are not the ones who change things, they merely look to protect and maintain the status quo, here is a quote I saw on a documentary that rang true: -
“When you look at the arc of human history it has been people’s movements that have always changed the world, it hasn’t been the democratic party, the republican party, or the labour party, or whoever it is in power in any one of these countries, it’s been movements, it’s been people recognising that they are the ones who change the world.
Just as these islands rose up from the sea, so too are the peoples of these lands, and every land rising up, to restore balance and harmony to our island earth. Together we are stronger, our voices louder, and the synergy of our actions more powerful."
At this moment in time we are seeing another movement to demand a fairer more equal world, just like in the 1960s. This generation has woken up to just how unfair and rigged against them this system is. They are uprising against endless wars, against racism, against the destruction of our natural world, against corrupt leadership that looks to continue these things.
When these separate groups realise they are combatting the same enemy and unite, the power structure at the top of our society will topple. People who spread this message like Martin Luther King Jr, Malcolm X, John Lennon were assassinated, but the ideas they articulated are bullet proof.
We can blame the politicians for all our problems but we must come to recognise their only power comes from us. When we continue to vote for them (no matter which of the two main parties) we are legitimising a system that is built to enrich a minority at the expense of the majority. A system built on taking peoples power from them.
"Our politicians do not serve us; they serve multinational corporations that pay them. It’s time to change that." Cenk Uygur
Now it is time for us the people of the world to stand up for ourselves. When standing up to someone else we should use All we can to find a peaceful resolution. We do not need violence (in fact it is counterproductive) to overcome an oppressor, but by coming together as One we the people have the strength to do this calmly and peacefully.
The truth is without us being compliant they are powerless and they know that, which is why they have done such a grand job of keeping us divided and arguing among ourselves. If we are too busy fighting with each other we do not see the bigger picture of who the real enemy is.
It is not them but ourselves because its only us who have the power to change things, but to do this we must unite with each other and even those who were our enemies and take the power back. It doesn’t matter which party is in charge it is the system itself that is broken, and changing leaders is no more than a superficial change to a much deeper issue.
It is time to rethink the way we hand out power and look to create a system that represents the planet as a whole, and not just small separate fragments where power has pooled like ink. A power that is rapidly destroying our home by polluting our oceans and skies, depleting our finite resources at a highly unsustainable rate. One which values waste over efficiency, and massively favours a small few at the huge expense of the great many.
Our leaders are spying on us and say “those who are doing nothing wrong have nothing to hide” Yet they themselves do things that they keep hidden from us and lock up whistle blowers for telling the truth and speaking out against them.
Any government that locks people away for telling the truth is against the people it is supposed to represent. I have nothing to hide from those who hide nothing from me, but if someone is not being honest with me it is impossible to have an honest relationship with them. Transparency only works if it is both ways.
In the new world whistle-blowers like Edward Snowden, Chelsea Manning and Julian Assange will not be considered criminals, but great leaders who spoke out about corruption despite the grave personal cost it had to them. They are heroes who acted selflessly and suffered greatly for listening to their conscience.
I don’t blame our world leaders for all our problems they too are just victims of The Voice Of Darkness, and the system of the night. Yet we are at the end of the night and the morning is upon us and that means a complete change.
The Voice Of Darkness; -
“I have had control over every major industry from banking to politics, corporations to news outlets, the police to the armed forces. I have been allowed to encourage you to set up society in a way that benefits certain individuals, yet at a big cost to the whole. And to convince you that this was for the best.
You have all seen corruption going on but never choose to stop it and that was because it was the night and my influence was too strong. Now you must put a stop to this corruption and build a society fit to benefit the whole, when you can do this you will have evolved into The Collective Super Being you were always destined to become.
This is your graduation from seeing yourself as only the physical shell and an individual, to seeing yourself as the universal energy that is everything, and is the collective web of symbiotic energy that is working towards the evolution of the collective consciousness.
The whole political system has been a rigged set up, designed to lead you to this moment. Don’t be mad at the politicians and leaders they were just dancing to the beat of my tune. They were compelled to behave the way they did and were born and educated to follow the paths they were destined for."
Power corrupts, so naturally it is not a good idea to have it in so few hands but distributed amongst an entire population. True power does not come from the amount of power you amass but from empowering the masses. True power comes from giving people their own power back.
A worldwide revolution begins with an individual revelation. By bridging the chasm of chaos with our love we can come together and create an open path to peace, prosperity, and fairness that is universal for ALL.
The greatest people draw out the greatness from others, and in this I believe we all have the power to be great. If we listen and have trust in our own inner lights we can become the lights which light the entire world.
I feel and see the light within you as you read these words. What do you say to taking back our power? I see in you someone I trust and someone I know has what it takes to have responsibility to own your own power.
To those in power in the words of Mr Kanye West: -
“You got the power to let power go?”
The Great Dictator's Speech
“I’m sorry, but I don’t want to be an emperor. That’s not my business. I don’t want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone - if possible - Jew, Gentile - black man - white. We all want to help one another. Human beings are like that. We want to live by each other’s happiness - not by each other’s misery. We don’t want to hate and despise one another. In this world there is room for everyone. And the good earth is rich and can provide for everyone. The way of life can be free and beautiful, but we have lost the way.
Greed has poisoned men’s souls, has barricaded the world with hate, has goose-stepped us into misery and bloodshed. We have developed speed, but we have shut ourselves in. Machinery that gives abundance has left us in want. Our knowledge has made us cynical. Our cleverness, hard and unkind. We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery we need humanity. More than cleverness we need kindness and gentleness. Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost....
The aeroplane and the radio have brought us closer together. The very nature of these inventions cries out for the goodness in men - cries out for universal brotherhood - for the unity of us all. Even now my voice is reaching millions throughout the world - millions of despairing men, women, and little children - victims of a system that makes men torture and imprison innocent people.
To those who can hear me, I say - do not despair. The misery that is now upon us is but the passing of greed - the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress. The hate of men will pass, and dictators die, and the power they took from the people will return to the people. And so long as men die, liberty will never perish. .....
Soldiers! don’t give yourselves to brutes - men who despise you - enslave you - who regiment your lives - tell you what to do - what to think and what to feel! Who drill you - diet you - treat you like cattle, use you as cannon fodder. Don’t give yourselves to these unnatural men - machine men with machine minds and machine hearts! You are not machines! You are not cattle! You are men! You have the love of humanity in your hearts! You don’t hate! Only the unloved hate - the unloved and the unnatural! Soldiers! Don’t fight for slavery! Fight for liberty!
In the 17th Chapter of St Luke it is written: “the Kingdom of God is within man” - not one man nor a group of men, but in all men! In you! You, the people have the power - the power to create machines. The power to create happiness! You, the people, have the power to make this life free and beautiful, to make this life a wonderful adventure.
Then - in the name of democracy - let us use that power - let us all unite. Let us fight for a new world - a decent world that will give men a chance to work - that will give youth a future and old age a security. By the promise of these things, brutes have risen to power. But they lie! They do not fulfil that promise. They never will!
Dictators free themselves but they enslave the people! Now let us fight to fulfil that promise! Let us fight to free the world - to do away with national barriers - to do away with greed, with hate and intolerance. Let us fight for a world of reason, a world where science and progress will lead to all men’s happiness. Soldiers! in the name of democracy, let us all unite!”
When we are united we are All powerful, because we all have power.
