They Think Of Us As Slaves ( small note with big conclusion)

Today,  at the Morning Joe  show on MSNBC former Senator Simpson  said the truth, "If Grover Norquist is so powerful it is time to find out where his money comes from.... WHO IS HE SLAVE TO."


The shills around the table sat silently for a while after that revelation and then... changed the topic. Not even one word was uttered out of those talking heads as if they all forgot their English for a minute. I understand- the've got no instructions from their slaveowners on how to respond. And they risked to look stupid and  idiotic in our eyes- just to satisfy  those WHOM THEY ARE SLAVES TO.


We are considered free people. No one is freer. And the slaves among us, those who  voluntarily sold their body and soul, the prostitutes of the worst kind- they despise us. They  know that they can lie to us openly, say nonsense, just ignore us, slander, shill, even behave obnoxiously because we can do nothing about it. We cannot use the arguments everyone else in the word uses that malice and stupidity are  the symbols of low level and people who express  those must go. We cannot fire our Congress, 90% of which are ignorant nincompoons, we cannot ban people from running for Presidency even though we know that those people are beyond repair, we cannot hang   in front of the Capitol Hill even a portrait of the banker who after running the economy into the ground cynically  says that 'his model of world turned to be wrong'. We cannot even take his money from him.  No wonder they don't give a damn about us. They think that we need  the rude flattery and noise. They think that we need  constant cheap gratification.They think we are animals and are  to be treated as such. That's why 24 hours a day we hear the HYSTERICAL LAUGHTER from the TV screen; that's them laughing at us. They can't stop.  It is better than sex.  It is an ultimate entertainment. We allow ourselves to be abused, our children to be killed, our dignity to be destroyed and then we ... laugh  together with those shills  without realizing that we laugh at ourselves.  WHOM ARE WE SLAVES TO?


Folks,   here's is wisdom- those so-called masters  who laugh at us, they are not Gods. They are in fact very small, shallow people who are desperately afraid of us. But unlike us they and their slaves work  all the time to preserve themselves, to keep the  things the proper way for them.  So if we are to blame  something or someone we can blame only our own  spiritual  immaturity and  lazinesss, our complacency and our  hubris. We are nothing. We can't handle the truth. Look into the mirror, folks- you will see the face of desperation.


And the funny thing- it is so easy to change.  All of that can change in a second.  Just acknowledge your slavery and  then you have a goal to fight for.  And also suddenly you have an unbelievable number of allies. That simple.
