This is not what it seems...

A person believes they are right because of what other people tell him/her. I believe most people can think for themselves and understand truth. Most of us have listened to crap and swallowed it whole. This doesn't mean we are idiots, it just means we trusted the wrong people.

Who will help you? Can it be the same people who just fucked you over for the last 40 years? Can it be a person or a party who gave up on you because your work was meaningless or too expensive? This is sadness beyond redemption.

Leadership in the US has been corrupted to its very core. When I questioned my Civics teacher in HS about the effect lobbying had on this subject he told me that the "checks and balances" written into the Constitution would take care of it. This was in 1973 and I watched in amazement how lobbying became synonymous with bribery and nobody cared.

This is what we are.



This is Japan in the 1930s.

This was a culture in conflict with itself.

This is the US now.

This is a culture in conflict with itself.

Shall we look at the flip-side?



Both of these countries love their military and at the same time they love their leisure.

One country helped foster a world war, the other wages war all over the world.

I am going to quote a paragraph from a book (Total War, Calvocoressi & Wint) written in 1972. I am going to substitute the word Japan with US. 

The prime evil of the US was certainly the ascendancy of the military. This led, in time of war, to the Supreme Command (the president and his NSC)  conducting the war as a state secret from the civilian parts of the US administration. Whatever else may be said of such a system, it proved to be most incompetent militarily. Thus US militarism held within it the seeds of its own defeat. It was unable to organize US society so that in modern warfare it could compete with the powers which were organized to be more flexible.

This correlation is more acute than anything Hitler did.



The best day of the week.

It's great day to try.
