Politicians – as both history and present day examples have proven ad nauseum – are largely not selfless people. They are not bodhisattvas who have renounced the concept of the self in order to work for the good of all. Rather, they are greedy, corrupt people, tortured by ignorance and delusion, whose very livelihood depends upon lying and deception. I’m an actor. I should know it when I see it!
A politician’s job is not to stand for high ideals such as justice, liberty, and equality, but to somehow trick us into thinking we actually need them in order to realize these ideals, though they are the main obstructions to fulfilling them.
The problem is, it’s very difficult to make a politician look essential during times of peace, when their useless, parasitic nature can easily be exposed. So it is incumbent upon them to generate as much war and conflict as possible. This act functions on many levels. It conveniently distracts people by uniting them in hate (and ignorance) against a common enemy. And it allows wealthier, more idiotically developed countries to steal the resources of another, and enslave its populace, all in the name of JUSTICE, FREEDOM, and PROGRESS.
In order for this scheme to function correctly, the politicians need to make sure the populace are adequately ill-informed, and have been conditioned by the media to make knee jerk responses to issues they don’t fully understand. Any response that comes quickly and without understanding is good for the politicians. It means they don’t have to work as hard to convince us with “reliable-sounding” sources. Make up a few facts, stage a few photos, and publish it. The rest will sort itself out, as only the minority will actually think to research them or penetrate the underlying reasons for this issue. And if people find concrete information that establishes it as a hoax, then don’t worry – then you can conveniently label them as Conspiracy Theorists, 5th Columnists, or Enemies of The State, or better yet, TERRORISTS, and the people can be harmoniously united in hate once again. More enemies. More invasions. More control. Hoorah!
When it comes to picking an enemy, make sure they come from a place with plenty of oil, natural resources, or a country that it would be politically advantageous for us to possess. Serve up over-cooked stories that play upon the underlying racism of your nation. Fund militants from that country to attack you. Or, if that doesn’t work, attack yourself, and blame it on them.
Many of these “Justice-loving” members of state knowingly hobnob with dictators and extremists, to whom they provide funding for arms and the military, though you’re unlikely to hear anything about, because they don’t want you to. So, when a head of state is willing to turn a blind eye to the actions of one dictator or group with whom they’re chummy, and suddenly start rallying a war of hatred against another, you have to ask “Why?” Clearly it’s not for reasons of justice, freedom or fairness.
The answer is: SELF-INTEREST.
When a small group of people is willing to kill and control the minds of millions just because it benefits them – that is psychopathy – also known as ‘stagecraft’ or ‘politics.’
