The sources of our troubles

by Michael Smith (Veshengro)

If we are really looking for the sources of our troubles in our society and world today we should not test people for drugs. Instead we should test people for stupidity, ignorance, greed and the love of power of of money.

Applying this test as outlined above would immediately make it self-evident who those are that cause the problems in the world and that would lead us and the Planet to destruction.

Alas, no one is going to apply such a test, not even the electorate and that is why those selfsame people with those attitudes are elected to office time and again.

It is rare, nowadays, to find a politician anywhere in the world, with a very few exceptions, who are not drawn into the game by the love of money and the love of power.

Most also suffer from stupidity, ignorance and greed, per se, and their only aim is to make a name for themselves and to rule over people.

And, it does not matter one iota which party they are from, whether so-called worker parties, most of which do not have a worker anywhere amongst their politicians, or whether it is liberals who are not very liberal or conservatives, etc. They all are lawyers or whatever but have very little if any idea of real life; a life outside of their cliques and politics.

We do not need a new government, we need a new system altogether.
