“No shepherd and one herd! Everybody wants the same, everybody is the same: whoever feels different goes voluntarily into a madhouse.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra
We are sheep. We are destined to be sheep. The vast majority of Americans follow the herd. Complacent in their own complacency. We follow the rules that have been set forth without a thought afterwards. No whispers in the wind. No desire to learn the “truth” or break free as “individuals.” We are one in the same and we choose to live a happier life. Our destiny is to be happy and to have a happy herd, the herd has to be complacent.
The general election, in some people’s’ minds, is predetermined. It was always going to happen that way. A boardroom of wealthy people sat down, laughed about their wealth, bought a group of people and then decided that Barack Obama should be the president in 2008. Bush in 2004 and 2000. Clinton in 1996 and 1992. So on and so forth. These board members manipulated legislation to have a global financial crisis. They started two wars at the same time while simultaneously cutting taxes on the wealthiest of Americans. They then saw a need to take over women’s rights and bring the nation back 30 years to launch of corporatism. They are in a board room after all.
Can you believe that they have been doing this for 100s of years? They are the ones that built the set to fake the moon landing. They are the ones that shot Kennedy in the head. They are the ones that shot the other Kennedy in the head. They are the ones that are poisoning our children. They started a hurricane and compromised the levies. They planted thermite in the World Trade Center. They decided to inflate German currency over 700% in the 1920s. They. They. They.
Of course, this is all in jest. A board room does not decide the fate of the world. In a day and age where limitless information is at your fingertips, you should be able to decipher between truth, fear tactics and all out lies. This is something that has been quite prevalent in the past year of the election season. Peoples’ recall of an objective subject is skewed by a mudslinging mentality. I’m right. You’re wrong.
In four years we have seen a recovery from the second worse economic disaster in modern times. Two of the backbones of the American Industrial Revolution were saved. Healthcare was reformed, allowing for easier access to care, not being denied because have aidsy cancer, and blowing the whistle on insurance agencies. Coincidentally, the insurance agency is set up to be one giant death panel, go figure. Wages have increased and people are hiring. The housing market has returned. Wall Street was told to suck it and that has scared Corporatists.
In 2010, there were a group of select, special “individuals” that tried to break free from the herd. They had it figured out. They would burn American dollars, burn the American dream and restore the country to 1776, all in the name of Jesus Horatio Christ. The problem is, they were worshipping ideals set forth by atheists and slave owners alike. The forefathers were men of science and wrote the constitution in this manner. They also wrote about bearing arms (muskets and service swords) to protect from Imperialism. This is something that modern-day Americans know nothing about and likely never will for many years to come.
These “individuals” are now laughing stocks. Either not knowing American history or the constitution, or telling a woman who God said you look like a slut, so just sit back and take it all in. Go ahead and have that baby too. I’m sure he/she won’t grow up having any daddy issues whatsoever. They tried to break from the herd. They tried to sell you that America is the worst country in the world. The same people who accuse Barack Obama of being ashamed to be an American, are the ones preaching to America that America is shameful.
The point is this. Voting takes place next Tuesday. Your vote counts. We will line up and be herd into the polling station. We will click on the button that says PROGRESS or the one that says REGRESS. This will happen two years from now for mid-term elections and two years after that for general and so on and so forth. It is okay to believe how you believe. It is not okay to be ashamed to simply discredit the values of others. People believe different things. But as Americans, we should stay true to our shepherd’s core values and leave it at that. Until a day comes that eradicates the Constitution, it is our place to be complacent.
Please to enjoy.
