politics - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
When politicians start gaslighting populations with the unwitting (or otherwise) help of the media, democracy is DOA; it's time for the crash team to breath life back into these institutions that were founded as instruments of truth and fairness.
It's time for a politics that can separate cause from symptom, for when we do, progress to societal healing will be rapid and solid. Stress harms health, education and lawfulness, yet those are symptoms of poverty. When we tackle poverty we fix multiple issues at once, and it is cheaper to fix than ignore. When people have their essentials guaranteed, they relax, their brains work better, they have a chance to calm their sympathetic nervous system. That's when things get better, when they stay healthy, learn more, volunteer more... It's so simple, so obvious and so loving... so let's stop debating things we already know the answers to and fix our nation.
I wonder; if an artist painted a picture book of Libertarianism (far right) and true communism (far left), if they would look just the same - no words, just pictures. I wonder the same for the principles of every religion, if instead of words it was only art. Wouldn't they all be paintings of love, of sharing, of caring? And wouldn't they be so much easier to understand than inches of text?
Blaming the politico-economic system for taking resources from the developing world, leaving them destitute and starving, is akin to blaming a slaughterhouse for dead cows. The system is doing what it was set up to do. This is why we need system change; money is the root of our evils. Love is our answer, our solution, the key to a better world.
