Dear Friends, below is a comment which I posted on another site yesterday. It partly expresses how I feel at the moment. What it doesn't say is that I am encountering the stinging truth of my own words that: He who tells the truth will rarely be popular.
The truth, no matter how obvious, will always upset this group or that, this person or that, and it will invite retaliation and abuse from some and indifference from others. Yet surely truth, however unpalatable, is the only thing that will save our world.
Perhaps our world can't be saved! Perhaps it can only be endured.
My Comment: "Craig, the real problem is that there is a total disconnect between the fierce debate and reasoned argument that takes place on blogs like this one (and five million others) and what our Masters do. We talk a lot (some of it hot air) but they make the decisions, they steer the direction the world goes in whether it be for better or worse.
They have worked out how to manipulate the democratic system that, ironically, is supposed to reflect our needs and aspirations. They, the politicians, the MSM, the Churches and Big Business are in a large, comfortable bed and they are stroking each other affectionately and vigorously. It is an unholy, incestuous, powerful alliance, one that rivals the royalty of old. So much for the French Revolution!
Once again we, the people, have become peasants (albeit educated ones), the hapless majority who, for centuries, have been both manipulated and used and abused by a small, elite minority.
Sometimes I feel like giving up. "
