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.
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.
Within our standing in awe of the unanswerable questions of why we or anything exists at all in this wonder of life, we should for our own sanity and morality continue to speak the truth in the face of mediaocratic America's present and desperate criminality causing horror and ignominious death, corruption and unhappiness for so much of mankind for the foolish short term profits of invested private wealth of the unethical powerful.
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.
For non-capitalists and progressives to lay low during this charade as they did during the last election, hoping that Kerry might after his election change his stripes, would be disappointing for the rest of mankind watching.
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.
