Zeitgeist: Addendum - Politics (Snippet)

...a feeling that they don't know who to elect. They think in terms of a democracy, which is not possible in a monetary based economy. If you have more money to advertise your position, -the position you desire in government- that isn't a democracy. It serves those in positions of differential advantage. So it's always a dictatorship of the elitist, the financially wealthy. "We can either have democracy in this country or we can have great wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, but we can't have both." - Louis Brandeis - Supreme Court Justice -It is an interesting observation to note how seemingly unknown personalities magically appear on the scene as presidential candidates. Then before you know it, somehow you are left to choose from a small group of extremely wealthy people who suspiciously have the same broad social view. Obviously it's a joke. The people placed on the ballot are done so because they have been pre-decided to be acceptable by the established financial powers who actually run the show. Yet many who understand this illusion of democracy, often think "If only we could just get our honest, ethical politicians in power, then we would be okay". Well, while this idea, of course, seems reasonable in our established oriented world view, it is unfortunately another fallacy. For when it really comes down to what is actually important, the institution of politics and thus politicians themselves, have absolutely no true relevance as to what makes our world and society function. -It's not politicians that can solve problems. They have no technical capabilities. They don't know how to solve problems. Even if they were sincere, they don't know how to solve problems. It's the technicians that produce the desalinization plants. It's the technicians that give you electricity. That give you motor vehicles. That heat your house and cool it in the summer time. It's technology that solves problems, not politics. Politics cannot solve problems 'cause they are not trained to do so.
