REAL Change is Inevitable

How much have things really changed since hundreds or even thousands of years ago? Our leaders would have you believe we are so “evolved” and yet the only real change is the invention of technology.
Society is still run by often corrupt people who adjust the laws to benefit the wealthy, much like old times.“Lords”, or wealthy landowners of Europe would have influence over the kings and the creation of policy because of their money, which translated to “status”(exactly the same as it is today). Even as the church grew wealthy they became more corrupt, expanding so the church leaders could sit in a palace surrounded by gold and having position above the law instead of helping the poor as was their claim. So how have we grown there? Even the “Senate” is not a new idea, anyone who had heard of Julius Caesar knows this well, and it was not new even in his day. Still, the politics remain the same – the wealthy influence policy in their favor. Religious leaders are selfish and corrupt. The “President” is no different really than the Kings of old or of the Senate leaders, little more than a figurehead that endorses the policies created by the wealthy FOR the wealthy. Even those on the Senate who didn’t come from wealth, whether long ago or in today’s world, would still be influenced by “bribes”or “contributors” to swing their votes in the favor of a wealthy party. It was that way so long ago, and it remains the same today. So nothing has really changed, has it?
For even longer still, wars have been fought over land and resources. Today’s “war on terror” is really little more than a publicity campaign to detract us from the real fact –these are the “Oil Wars”, a fight over an increasingly limited and fast diminishing resource. What has it cost us? In addition to thousands of lives, the freedoms we sacrifice to those policies created by the wealthy and enforced by thugs hiding behind badges is our biggest price.
If this really was a war on terror, we have already lost. We have receded to a point of giving up our freedoms and worse still, paying higher taxes to have those freedoms removed. We suffer the greatest loss of freedom now, today, since slavery because the wealthy leaders have lost control over their greed and selfishness. Why do we willingly pay to give up our freedoms – what is wrong with this picture?
The more freedoms that are removed, the more taxes are imposed for removing those freedoms. It solves no purpose but to build a bubbling cauldron of hatred and anger. People are taught more and more every day not to take responsibility for their own actions, that problems are always someone else’s fault. Parents no longer raise their own children and the law makes it too easy for the irresponsible to have unwanted children and neglect them, turning them into little more than wounded animals in great pain. Worse, these parents then run to blame and sue someone else when their child goes wrong because this is what the wealthy do – a great example of responsibility and good policy, huh? Make no mistake, this is the age of irresponsibility, and our leaders are pushing this on us. They change the laws to support placing the blame on others. Even marriage has become a “fad” with most people saying “well, if it doesn’t work, we can just get divorced”. What kind of message is that?
What happened to values? What happened to responsibility? Why not let people be responsible for themselves? If you have a child, then your child goes out and kills people, you ......
