onto AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US
This is my insight and rambling thoughts about the very idea of granting super power status to nations or leaders.
Is it desirable to allow a country, any country super power status if that country does not allow personal power and choice to its citizens? Is that a power the citizens of the world need to accept and then allow to lead and then to follow? Only with the force of the masses behind a power can that power really have power or wealth.
The will of the masses can be manipulated and enslaved only if those people are kept uninformed, often uneducated, poor and desperate for survival. People are often persuaded they need to be willing to die for what is usually pushed as a treat to a nation or value system of a particular group or those worshipping a particular GOD. Too often God is falsely package to actually empower those that desire and need the consent of true believers in whatever they wish to achieve. How can anyone really believe in an all-powerful GOD and then believe that same God can be so easily threatened and defeated that he needs mortals as a defense?
This is not a question of about whether there is a God. This is a question about how easily and affectively men can be manipulated to fulfill the purpose of a few powerful people. How does that happen and how can we change this ever repeating history for the good of society, the planet and maybe even an improved relationship with God and all the other living creatures that exist to form this web of life? Hardship and death are part of living. Behaving as though one was a God that will live forever or will hold forever what was attained in a limited lifetime is foolish and harmful to this web of life. Great leaders that are worthy of respect do not deny others the opportunity to fully live and participate in life. How do we declare any country or leaders such a status of “super-power” with out more scrutiny of which nation and leaders are truly worthy of such adoration?
