Let's try to grasp as much of present reality as much as we can as we consider where to place our efforts during the next game of pseudo-democratic choice that will end soon enough on November 2nd.
Even if all the articles on why Obama won were taken seriously, without that proverbial grain of salt, we would still have to admit that Obama is probably capable of processing surrounding circumstances and still keeping to the goal of his becoming Emperor while not being unaware of all the forces cause-and-effecting his enthronement.
In addition, one might assume that Obama like almost all emperors before him, will probably have the desire, hope and/or illusion of being his own man, even in the face of the realities he will continue to allow and/or be forced to allow to manipulate him quasi entirely.
Rather than spend time bitching about what already is and has been and will be, we should carefully place our moral, happy and intelligent two cents on the scales with gratitude and equanimity.
Rather than overblow the importance of this pathetic domestic election-show, let us keep in mind events in Chiapas, Nepal, Venezuela, Bolivia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Zimbabwe, Cuba, China, India, Japan, Russia, Korea, and in every country in this capitalist dominated world, and put it all into perspective.
Jus' let's keep on truckin.' Keep our eye on the beauty and kindness of the common folk the world over, and not let them down. And let's remember:
HOPING TO REFORM CAPITALISM MAKES YOU COMPLICIT IN ITS INIQUITIES/4
Whatever one wants to call whatever takes its place, it is the inhumanity, even murderous criminal insanity of the totally materialist and mindless capitalist system that we are living through right now. Those of us who merely try to make it a bit less monstrous, are more acquiescent to its continuance, than its being replaced with something more intelligently human.
