I realize time and again how tired I am of the pseudo-left and the pretend-right.
Can’t we just, I don’t know, ship them all to Siberia?
What even is the difference between today’s pseudo-left and pretend-right? There is very little difference. Both are overbearing buggers wanting to control our lives. It’s really just that their colors are different. Other than that, they’re the same poop from the same even bigger pile of poop.
The biggest issue are the rabid followers of either. They don’t think, they don’t educate themselves, they just repeat the party line like good robots. Left wing, right wing, it’s all the same muck.
It’s like… do you want your untreatable brain cancer in your brain on your left hemisphere or your right hemisphere?
To anyone with common sense and the ability to think reasonably it wouldn’t matter because either way you’re toast. But for the pretend-right and pseudo-left it’s the most important thing, because they believe there’s a difference.
It’s like the difference between getting shot in the head first and then having your head chopped off or having your head chopped off first and then getting shot into it.
Of course, this all comes hand in hand with career politicians and lack of term limits.
Great, recent example: Our dear mayor has been in power for 20 years.Woohoo!
He’s not really good at it, as our city’s almost 5 BILLION Euro debt shows, but for some reason he has managed to weather all opponents because, apparently, 1) they sucked even more than him and, primarily, 2) people vote for parties because they’ve always voted for them and because their dad and grandpa did it too, not because they think for themselves and inform or educate themselves over issues, ideas, solutions and programs.
So our mayor gave an interview and on most of the pressing and burning issues that worry our people he had no ideas, no replies and no concept. He didn’t even know these issues existed. But guess who will likely get re-elected? Yep. Him.
Left wing, right wing, the difference is trivial when you have the people vs a political aristocracy.
I remember reading that, when the very young US government had to consider a head of state (the decision of what to call the head of state took some time, too), they approached George Washington. Washington’s first reaction was “By god, haven’t I served enough?”
He didn’t want it. He didn’t want to be president. Imagine that. But Washington, being a man who valued service very highly, eventually gave in and became the first president of the US. It should be noted that this was in the days when term limits did not exist and yet, after two terms, Washington stepped away from the office. He wasn’t voted out of office, he simply stepped back. Quite remarkable.
Today our countries are plagued by career politicians who fight in front of the cameras and hug each other behind closed doors while laughing at us. It is a de facto political aristocracy. I wonder how long until it will be one de jure.
So yes, the constant bickering between the “grassroots” (aka the rabid fanboys) has gotten to my nerves. I’m sick and tired of it. It serves no purpose. It is fought between groups that offer very few ideological differences. It’s just another distraction from real issues. And the media happily pushes it because it works well into the overall plan of divide et impera. Divide and rule.
Heck, at this rate I might ship myself to Siberia first. Live among the wolves and reindeer and away from this nonsense.
