I will no longer be doing any blogging of any sort about politics on this (or any other) blog.
It just makes me angry and there is nothing I can do at this stage, anyway. Corporations control the media and the government, and that is only increasing.
Only a huge crisis, far more calamitous than the recent financial implosion and subsequent Great Recession, will bring about any change at all.
Thinking about any of it, writing about it, or even noticing it wastes my time and fills vital brain space with useless garbage. I am by most accounts a pretty smart guy, but I’ve come to recognize that there is only so much information I can process and make use of, and that as I focus more the distractions are killing that focus.
Politics for now is a worthless ritual battleground. It and the scope of thought allowed therein is completely controlled, just as much as in any dictatorship. Voting means nothing; protesting means nothing (especially the way it’s done now). These are just relief valves the mandarins allow to make the hoi polloi believe they have a little power.
Wake me up when the revolution comes.
