“..When a problem occurs or when something is wrong we have traditionally been conditioned to find someone who is “in charge” -
- a final arbiter of decision making who will have all of the answers – and know all of the right things to say and do.
Typically, those who have found themselves “in charge” are no more qualified or knowledgeable than those who are not -
- yet nonetheless these false prophets continue to swindle generation after generation of people.
The worst thing about this whole situation is that these so called “authorities” maintain a monopoly on problem solving – meaning they are really the only ones who are allowed to solve problems.
Thus over time people begin to believe that those in authority are the only ones who are actually capable of solving problems -
- when in reality, they are no more qualified than anyone else.
If we apply this understanding to the realm of government, it is not difficult to see that the current system of electoral politics is not an effective or moral way for people to actually create meaningful change in their communities and the planet as a whole.
Year after year, administration after administration the faces change -
- but the oppression continues to escalate.
Even if your vote is actually counted, which it probably isn’t, it still won’t matter who wins in the end anyway because they are all going to carry out the exact same policies with just slightly differing rhetoric behind them.
It should be obvious by now that this system is not only inherently corrupt – but is also failing miserably -
- and currently in the process of collapse.
So what do we do?
How do we solve these problems?
Do we look to authority?
Do we put someone else in charge?
Of course not!
How has that been working out for us all along?
Not so well – right?..”
