I hate politics. Politics is a profession for people who think they can solve all the world's problems, even though everyone knows this is impossible. So why do people go into politics? For power, obviously. Perhaps even more so than in religion, the control factor is the dominant force behind all political games. The Conspiracy allows its minion to dress up and play political games with each other, secure in the knowledge that all this talk and all those laws aren't going to make the slightest bit of difference in the end…for in the end, the Conspiracy is the winner. Or so they think.

One of the things I despise the most about politics is the way people use politics to tell blatant, bald-faced lies to mass audiences. No one believes a word of these blatant lies, yet they tell these lies anyways because that's how it's actually written down. The WRITTEN word is what counts, because reading between the lines is not legally binding. And politics, more than any other profession I know of, is based on the telling of blatant lies because that's what you're supposed to do.

And this is hardly unique to politicians – everyone does this when they need to make a political statement. It's not just political, either. I first realized this back in the early 1980s, when the world was becoming aware of AIDS and Rock Hudson died. He went to France for treatment for this new disease, and it was in all the papers. The day before he died, his French doctors held a press conference and announced to the world that they had cured Rock Hudson of his malady. The next day he was dead. No one seemed to care that the doctors had stood in front of a TV audience and told blatant, bald-faced lies…because that was what they were expected to do. I still don't understand why it happens like this, but it does.

The Eternal Floating Flame Wars of Politics

Time and time and time again, certain especially volatile subjects are tossed back and forth amongst the participants in political "debates." These are the subjects that cause endless arguments, stonewalling, political posturing, pandering, and even outright hatred and violence. For some reason, these political subjects have generated more hot air and wasted more time, effort, and money than they have any right to deserve. These are the political "hot buttons" – they cause knee-jerk reactions in people, rather than allowing people to sit back and think about the pain and suffering they are causing. And the Conspiracy knows this. This is why issues like these always dominate political campaigns, even though they usually have little to no effect whatsoever on us. Any politician or would-be politician knows that if he says one wrong word about these subjects that offends the "wrong" people (the ones with money), he can kiss his candidacy good-bye.

The major media are owned and controlled FAR more thoroughly than they were back then. We won't see any more Vietnam-era exposes because they know how to clamp a lid on it all. These protestors are too dumb to realize that people don't understand the issues they're promoting, and they don't WANT to because they only exist on accounting spreadsheets. "Forgive the debt of developing nations!" Yeah, man, that REALLY has the impact of "One two three four, we don't want your fucking war."

The sixties protests made an impact because they were new and no one was ready for them. Nowadays we have a silly "March on Washington" every other WEEK. When was the last time any of these protests had any REAL effect? Folks strut in the streets in their silly paper-mache costumes, behind police barricades, while the corporate suits sit up there in their meeting room and laughed at them and "promise" to take "action." Ha. I am certainly not ready to live with the changes the Corporations are planning for us. But this ain't the Peace And Love Sixties, man – things have changed, and your ways of effecting change had damn well better change with it, or else you're just going to jerk off in the street and think it means something. NEW ways of effecting change are needed. What are those new ways? Don't ask me to tell you, because 1) I don't know, and 2) I'm just an aspring cook and magician. I'm fucking the Man in my OWN way, and hopefully inspiring others to find their own ways as well.
