Povertyland’s Adventurelands

The poor are all like minded and they congregate around each other in special areas or neighborhoods or amusement themed places and they play off of each other, interact and talk only to each other, live by the evil codes of their environments.  They lie, cheat and steal.  They vote their interests when they deem to vote, when those interests don’t go against their smarmy ethos.  Some won’t challenge the dominant in groups of thought in county or state or close minded heavens when their interests preclude them from hating the free thinking other.

Poverty is a special club with special memberships and homes for those strong enough to walk the streets of their Poverty land’s Adventurelands.  Concentrated power in these amusement park paradises means that the poor there rule the streets, the deprivation.  Their numbers may be marginalized, however, when their happy little fiefdoms are just small in number compared to all other happy little fiefdoms, those of the righteous non poor.  In their wake they are just the Halloween amusement park.

Societies change and the puffed out chests of their soldiers may take pride in different things. Power goes where it will go.

Societies change and the puffed out chests of their soldiers may take pride in different things. Power goes where it will go.

The existence of a vibrant middle class tends to spread the points of access to power and to diminish the authoritarian strains of all factions primed and ready to go forward and commit their ideas of holy unity.

The ideas of a possible existence of a middle class serve a similar function.

The absence of any hope that such a thing as a middle class may be possible leave the fields open to all manners of saviors.

Policies may come and fail.  They may be non too bright and all too corrupt

But they must be open to  establishing the ideas of a sustained, broad based population.  Power in a democracy should look to find a home in the solid middle …. that which may form itself by accident and common interest, by luck and sustained prosperity, by a culture that calls such a thing good.  These were the gifts of a once upon a time.  These are not the gifts of now.  The ground beneath the feet of that dream or illusion is shifting and caving and the new paradigms may find these old tintypes quaint and sentimental.

Societies change and the puffed out chests of their soldiers may take pride in different things.

Power goes where it will go.

It is far easier to break the backs of those we own rather than try to do so to those who own us.

It is far easier to break the backs of those we own rather than try to do so to those who own us.

The poor and the dispossessed have no powerful constituency and therefor can be easily vilified and labelled as cheats and pikers, welfare abusers, scum who steal money from the public trough.

The wealthy, the gods, the connected own constituencies and can then steal and plunder without push back from all guardians of public morals.  Might makes right and might corrals the standard bearers of public decency.

The poor and the dispossessed can make sublime canon fodder for those who make the conflicts, the weapons, the games, but they are there to be used as a resource ….. too many stop being poor and dispossessed, start having a stake in society and good canon fodder gets harder to find.

It is far easier to break the backs of those we own rather than try to do so to those who own us.

The devolution of common ground amongst the “communities” of nations …..

Posted in Commentary, current events, dominance, News, opinion, political science, Politics with tags , , , , , , , , on April 6, 2015 by B Schiff

The devolution of common ground amongst the “communities” of nations …..

Our hatreds are, as always, much stronger than our ideals. Our ideals, if not totalitarian, speak to a rising march of civilization ever more towards a more “civilized” set of thinking and acting.  The ideals of respect for life, liberty and the pursuits of happiness seemed, once, to be the way of the world.

Such is the presumption of the “evolved” man or woman.  Greater degrees of education. more access to exchanges of ideas, more awareness of the self interests of rationality and power balance as ways to avoid slaughter; more openness to critical thought would serve as a ballast, an anchor.

Our hatreds are, as always, much stronger than our ideals.  In “advanced” developed societies hatred is a fine de facto force of passion and power seeking.  In”troubled” societies with order a dream and chaos a whirlwind hatred is a fine charger.  It works well and demands no effort.

The devolution of common ground amongst the “communities” of nations holds that no stabilizing force of any stripe has ideals worth honoring.  Hatred, always at home, loves all vacuums.

Power seekers are the ones with the light in their eyes.

Power seekers are the ones with the light in their eyes.

A democracy allocates power in ways that hopefully spread it around and give voice to as many folk as possible.  These humble gentry need to be courted, bought off, manipulated,, defanged, enraptured, stomped upon depending upon the amount of real input any given population sample may be able to obtain.  Democracy, in itself, is a good form of government in so far as the corruption of same is, in general terms, the least evil form of government ….. that which makes the most in the corrupt society happy in their corruption.

Power seekers in nominal democracies either manipulate the frameworks of same, work effectively outside of the frameworks of same using said frameworks as a blind, or work , generally, within the framework choosing to maximize opportunities, vulnerabilities and flaws in the system or dreaming to reduce same.  The rational power seeker wishes see the framework as an obstacle to be overcome.

Our general run of politicos today are a general run of politicos.  Save for those who are of the general run of power seekers.  The goal of one, the politico is to be a corrupt soul.  The goal of the other, the power seeker, is to wish for a system different from what we got, more efficient in use.  This is the gift of our modern soul.  Power seekers are the ones with the light in their eyes.

You can’t teach dumb

You can’t teach dumb

We are worried completely and dramatically and faithfully here and all about … here and all about the state of our knowledge, our educational prowess, the mass ability of our gentry and folk to become bodies with functioning minds and minds with moving parts.

A real and noble ideal worthy of the best of our natures and the better angels of our natures.  We wish smart folk and sensible folk and worthy folk to inhabit our space and time and make life a treasure for us all.

But, sadly, however, tragically, however … try as we might … work as we will …. strain as we must … some things are just beyond the pale.  We strive to emulate the best of all of us in public and private life … in the worlds of power and thought, opinion and choice.  Tis a sad, hard task.  These are folk gifted from above.  They of the natural order of things are.  That which they have is unattainable.

You can’t teach dumb.

A second rate land evolves from a second rate front.

A second rate land evolves from a second rate front.

With the absolute paucity of any serious minded public persona we are left with the constant droning on of lame second rate and third rate minds playing little boy and girl fraternity and sorority games with themselves and calling it big person actions.

We have the dead empty soulless leading the dead empty soulless who allow these wonders the public sphere and the public forum.  Paralysis by paralysis.  Heart and soul matters are a shriveled, dried out chimera and self important non entities suck up all of the air so that the system is useless, broken, given over to those of private power.

Vacuums are evolved, created, wished for, looked for, used.

A second rate land evolves from a second rate front.
