What the heck is the duality of polarity? Most see this phrase as redundant, but it is actually specific, elaborating and revealing. Allow me to demonstrate it with the status quo of US politics and social structure. The 2016 United States primary process has been incredibly revealing. The election has been revealing of the collective character of the US, but more starkly the oligarchies of the two major political parties in their party operations and on their control of our political characters. The United States, from the local primaries to local government on up to the federal operations is corrupted. It is corrupted by legal and immoral oligarchical infiltration, many of these scams are done subtly, like in Nevada where officials changed the rules at will.

Other oligarchical functions of the status quo are straight overt. The entire function of the Super Delegates is to maintain oligarchical control. This controlling oligarchy directs the status quo, is in control of the system directly, and this vanguard collectively holds a 'Do Not Pass Go Card' on the political monopoly board. This is a blatant example of immoral and legal corruption of democratic election. The Republican inner party has differing operations to hold onto the status quo and their power too.

Everything is subject to the measure of moral and immoral, using the Golden Rule as the dividing line. Once that is determined the matrix of four can be utilized to cross reference the ideas of morality and legality. There are four types of law; moral laws which promote moral acts and moral laws which promote immoral acts, immoral laws which promote moral acts and immoral laws which promote immoral acts. Some laws instigate different actions by different individuals. Some laws instigate the crime they were explicitly written to prevent. Some laws are written with loopholes for the few to benefit. Some laws cease crime others create crime. Moral laws resulting in moral acts are the distinct part of this set. Moral and legal do not necessarily coincide! That is to say, just because it's legal does not mean it's not rigged and corrupted.

People repeatedly point out that there is no evidence of wrongdoing when it comes to accepting campaign contributions and other corporate boot licking which enables lobbyists to have access to the very writing of law in the US. There is no evidence that anyone, including Hillary Clinton, who was paid exorbitantly as a speaker by some shifty corporations, so they would do something. But there is every bit of evidence that many have been paid to do nothing for the money, to prevent and block change from the institutionalized format of the status quo. It is not only what you do, it is what you don't do that speaks volumes as to intention and focused direction.

The duality of polarity assists to contrast being paid off to do something with being paid off to do nothing. This is the ultimate elitist function really, paid to do nothing, to keep the ball rolling. So in fact in the United States, many are paid nothing for doing nothing, and that's fair enough, many are paid something to do something, also potentially fair enough. And when it comes to bribery some are paid something to nothing! Slavery is the opposite of that, being paid nothing to do something. Contrast that with oligarchical homage to master where people are paid to do nothing, to ignore the planet's destruction, and enslavement or exploitation of people, other living beings and places all across the world. Bribery is most frequently paying someone not to do rather than not to do. These bribes come in the form of campaign contributions, corporate lobbying, and the subversion of The First Amendment known as Citizen's United.

In an honest world we would all be paid hearty living wages, and why not? Economics and money is really just imaginary representation anyhow. We would be paid based on our work, and not paid when not working. But there are some who are paid vastly for doing nothing, and also those who are paid nothing for doing plenty.
