Tired of politics
I'm somehow tired of politics. Elections are just a popularity contest for people who suffer from advanced attention deficit.
Once elected it's politics as usual. Those guys who act as if they care are the same guys making arms deals once they show us another soccer tournament. Later we can watch in the news that there is a threat from terror group XYZ. And of course they are the biggest threat ever and we all need to fear for our safety. What's next. New laws to further contain people's freedoms. I'm writing here from China, where internet security is already on an advanced level. But the same as for the arms race. It's not Chinese who developed these techniques. The suppliers for internet censorship software are all from the United States. It's only a test run. Once the test are over it will run worldwide. This is why all politicians already push for more surveillance. because there is a threat. They produce those ISIS clips in Hollywood so people believe there are dangerous people who want to take their freedoms. Honestly climbing stairs or the common cold are far more dangerous threats than ISIS. Yes they show terror attacks. There were people running Amok before. They just never made it into the news. Now anybody running amok is automatically connected to terrorism. While the real terrorists don't wear beards and wave ISIS flags. They rather wear suit and tie, attend political and corporate meetings and are well connected through their investments.
Don't believe the hype and question everything.
Challenge the system.
Democracy does not mean that a small group of egomaniacs use the people as their slaves. Democracy means that the politicians are supposed to serve the people. Not the people the politicians. They keep you busy by using the media.
So you believe they are doing their jobs.
