You cant sell news stories that have data and cautious predictions. Where is the panic? Where is the impending doom? C'mon people , give me something to work with here…

..and as I was a yuppy marketing and advertising executive for the better part
of a decade, I am not really impressed with stories of selling your soul to the devil...

I was always taught that a gentleman should stir away from vile subjects such as politics. good thing i am not a gentleman.

but the truth is cant stand politic talks, and all the candidates, all the representatives, all the parliament members and congressmen look the same to me. empty suits with vaccum in their heads and their pockets sucking away our thoughts and our money. but that is just my opinion.

I do belive there are good politicians. and unicorns.

I don’t say kill a politician. I don’t say key a politician's car,
I don’t even say call them in the middle of the night and hang up. I say spit in their face. Whenever you see them.
My utopia is a world where you would not find a dry politician to save your life…"

Unlike most other systems, democracy sells us the idea we have a say, that we are in fact the real opposition and that the ones on top are accountable. Oh, if only that was true…


And thank god we have twenty four hour TV networks to keep the marketing machine going, using the best minds in the field. Well, using the word best for such vile gablesque creatures of the dark is a bit of a cognitive dissonance, so let's just say they employ the most efficient bullshit merchants that exist. Yes, that sounds much more accurate."

 

from the article
Politics/ Faux News
Politics these days seem to me more surreal than ever. It is a test. It is a test designed by the rich and powerful to see how far can they go, how stupid can people really be, how gullible people really are. They have nothing to lose. If we don’t bite? There's another candidate with a better haircut and even more stupid speeches to take the failure's place. The reservoir of puppets is infinite.

 

This half-bred giant is on the loose, creating havoc all over the world under the disguise of liberation and democracy, opening people's fridge, finish all their beer and stealing their food, and then when he is done he trashes the fridge and sets it on fire. But, not to worry, for he has an older brother who will now sell them a new fridge. A much better fridge. That costs only three hundred times more, is inefficient, addictive and the parts can be bought only from the big brother big parts big paychecks warehouse. It's just off the expressway, you can't miss it.

We didn’t know. He looked like such a nice young man with ideals and all. What? Oh, you say he was killing his people even then? Oh, sorry, we must have skipped that page in the report, because we were really just trying to help. And how dare you say such a thing? Are you against freedom? Are you against democracy? "

And the masses don’t really want equality. Equality means being responsible for your actions and their consequences, it means to be part of the energy put into building and growing. Most people just want to live their lives, and there is nothing wrong with that.
You chose somebody else to think for you and make your life decisions because it leaves you more time to see what the new iphone can do, and that is all right.
