envision a bleak or wonderful future? Are we going down the right road with
politicians like the presidential hopefuls of Clinton, Trump, or Cruz? Is Sanders the answer to this insanity? Or are we?
Who really has the power to create a sane society?
Psychiatrist Eric Fromm wrote a book titled Escape From Freedom. He argued that we surrender to the "powers-that-be" and allow ourselves to be imprisoned:
Fromm's first major publication was Escape from Freedom in the year 1942. Its central argument was "freedom from the traditional bonds of medieval society, though giving the individual a new feeling of independence, at the same time made him feel alone and isolated, filled him with doubt and anxiety, and drove him into new submission and into a compulsive and irrational activity".
This isolation from society and its people, along with the uncertainties and doubts involved, enables to illuminate the manner and ways in which the general public seek the sanctuary and incentives of totalitarian societies like fascism. Escape from Freedom is perceived as one of the origins of political psychology. http://www.erichfromm.net/
Are we currently surrendering our freedom by supporting the corporate empire? Is this a key barrier to fostering bottom-up governance?
Our escape from freedom is the denial of our power, individually and collectively. In surrendering power to politicians and corporations, we are on the wrong road to change!
Bernie Sanders is not the answer. We are. Indeed, even if Bernie is elected, how much can he do with a Congress placed in office by corporate monies?
Many are saying we are close to becoming a Fascist nation. Indeed some say families such as the Rothchilds are helping to foster a Nazi culture in the United States. Consider the following websites regarding American corporation's support of the German Nazis:
Some of the names given surprised me, especially Joseph Kennedy, John and Robert's father.
How much is true and how much not?
I have no idea. I don't trust anything in the media. I remain skeptical, yet I don't deny the idea. In the pattern I am seeing in today's American culture, I currently support the notion that corporations reflect and support fascist regimes.
