I believe that in the future, like maybe 100 years or so from now, when children are reading their history books, learning about the past, the word “politician” will be synonymous with “crook, racketeer, or swindler”.
For the past sixty years or so, the business of “Politics” has been making a LOT of politicians’ wealthy beyond their annual salaries primarily due to the nature of the “business”. I’m sure the corruption goes way back, perhaps 100 years.
Lobbyists of businesses and some foreign countries like zebrael, pay money for influence, and sometimes the purchase of influence, or reason to pay a politician massive sums of money, is not about serving our best interests as a people, and nation.
The idea of “Government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth” as stated in Lincoln’s famous Gettysburg Address on November 19, 1863 has unfortunately, perished in deed. Lincoln gave a great speech, but he would be sad to see what our political system of influence peddling has become.
America’s political and legal systems are “Rotten to the Core”, an idiom that originally described a “Bad Apple”, and in it’s usage in the English language refers to a person being very bad or dishonest.
If America (its citizens), were considered to be the good “apples” in a basket, you would normally remove the “Bad” apples” from the basket, right?
It is time now for dramatic changes in how we govern ourselves, and how the rest of the world does as well. Democracy was okay for a few hundred years, but the future of our own country and the rest of the world begs for something new.
I’m not a socialist, but I believe that this new system of governance will incorporate all the positive attributes of what our species has experienced before.
I call this new system INCLUSIONISM. Root word: INCLUDE, i.e., we ALL will have an active role in governing our country and our world.
I’m sure that the end result of re-inventing our system of governance will have a positive impact on how we function as a nation, and how our global community will function together as well.
I’m not prepared to get into details in this essay on what we as a people can and cannot do to make the changes we need, but I do have my own thoughts on the steps/processes to achieve the goal. The goal being a better world, with no more wars, no more famines, no more homelessness, no more poverty.
Let’s talk. Please share your own thoughts and visions.
