Politics of Hate
Warning: This will be a rant.
Everyday here in America shows another round of insanity that seems utterly improbable to occur. And yet it does.
Everyday the corruption becomes more entrenched, the populace more tortuously obedient and ignorant, and the world slowly dying.
Everyday creates a new bud of hatred for the system and a new blooming of resignation to the system.
While this list is not all encompassing, it is a start. If something is missed, it isn't due to importance but rather a fevered state.
*I hate how both parties view themselves as the "good guys" as they commit atrocities around the world.
*I hate how the Democrats view themselves as these enlightened, marvelous people when in reality they are manipulable, bloodthirsty individuals.
*I hate how Republicans view themselves as God's chosen when they are also manipulable, bloodthirsty individuals.
*I hate how Christians don't somehow explode in the contradiction of accepting Capitalism as their orthodox.
*I hate how Clinton supporters somehow in this deluded fantasy see Clinton having the election rigged against her by the Russians and Sanders having the advantage.
*I hate how Democrats view themselves as pragmatic and somehow "wanting the same things" as 'progressives' when in reality they are nauseatingly greedy and selfish people living in their 5-1% lifestyle not giving a single fuck about the lives of poor people.
*I hate how often more so with Democrats than Republicans can simultaneously be for and against the very same thing merely depending on partisan approach (being against the Iraq War to some extent but then also simultaneously talking about the virtue of destroying Libya and Syria).
*I hate how Democrats try to sell themselves as the party of women and POC when those same Democrats voted to rape, torture, kill, or ruin the lives of those very same people across the world multiple times (Vietnam, Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Libya, and on and on).
*I hate how Sanders who talked about the virtues of 3rd parties and the problems of the duopoly is nothing more than a company party man for the Democrats, even though he now has the most power he has ever had in his elected history. If there was any singular individual in the last century who even had a chance of breaking the duopoly and allowing 3rd parties to grow, it would have been him. But instead he shows his obsequiousness to power.
*I hate how the general population just plods along, barely able to lift their obese frames as they consume and consume everything in their path from food to utterly meaningless trinkets and baubles in our excessive consumerist society.
*I hate how the general population talks about wanting a 3rd party yet will never vote for the damn 3rd parties on the ballot. I mean, Libertarians were in all the state ballots while Green was in roughly 48 I believe. This in itself could generate an essay but I'll leave that for later.
*I hate how we are mindlessly careening off the cliff here with regards to climate change, with the general populace just strolling along. In the end the rich will win while the general population dies off without even a single whimper.
*I hate how easy it is to manipulate the American public, ramping up another Cold War with Russia so easily. My God, it's like the MIC just has a game-show spin wheel and whatever the arrow lands on will be the next enemy. In 30 years we will probably worry about Islamic terrorists again. Or maybe we will have moved back to Communists, or maybe the Chinese. Who knows. The public just easily accepts the lies of Rachel Maddow or Hannity or whatever nonsense gets pushed at the other networks.
I know there is more, but I could go on for quite some digital pages here. In the end I see no reason for hope. My generation of millennials are barely scraping by while Boomers won't give up a single ounce of power until it is pried from their cold, dead hands. And by then it probably will be too late.
Again this is a rant so I don't have an eloquent and elegant ending. It seems that we are resigned to just watch the world burn around us.
