the establishment - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
The establishment was born as a veil of lies to hide barbarism at home and abroad, to prop up the engorgement of the aristocracy. Yet now we can make this veil the truth, something pure. We can really be fair to all and have honour as our ancestors spoke and dreamed of. All it takes is to believe it, to live it and let those actions and thoughts change us for the better.
The Establishment can be a service to every citizen or an oblique power-base of corruption and greed. It can be run with love and goodness or apathetic emotional indifference. The problem isn't the institution, it's the spirit in which it is run. Integrity of emotion brings integrity of institution, the spirit is the strength of the structure.
The purpose of the monetary system was to create a pyramid scheme of power and wealth accumulation for the rich; the purpose of nationalism is to hide the purpose of the monetary system by hijacking our biological need to belong to a tribe. War is the by product of this system. This is the established system but it is not the establishment. We can have good institutions that are run for the good of all.
These days they blow up parliament and crown with no more than newspaper ink. These days they seek to cut off supply routes with no more than cheap words. They think that they can tell us our will and we will make it so. Remember, remember, the fifth of November.
