Corruption is a noun which comes from Latin meaning Decaying. If something is corrupt it essentially means that it is no longer alive, but dead and decaying.
There are other meanings of corruption such as dishonest, open to bribery, and all the other descriptions that indicate that a corrupt person has no ethics or loyalty to other people. The Latin meaning essentially implies that the soul of a corrupt person is dead.
A dead soul is not only worthless, it is destructive to other souls.
Almost every politician is Corrupt. A corrupt politician is only interested in the well being of himself, and will do anything necessary to further that well being.
WHY DO WE HAVE POLITICIANS?
Every human on this planet knows that all politicians are corrupt. The question arises: Why do we need politicians?
Humans live in groups. As a group, they require a leader. A group of animals will not survive without direction. They need direction to find food. They need direction to defend themselves. This need for food and defense is universal.
In the family, the father or mother will act as leader. In a small tribe or other group, the members will chose a leader. As a society grows in size, the members find methods of choosing leaders. Eventually, their choices pass through generations and a small group of leaders re-elect each other from generation to generation.
This familial type of leadership is known as a Monarchy, and has been the source of human leadership since recorded time. All ancient societies had familial leadership. The leaders were given titles which were recognized and accepted by the citizens. The titled Aristocracy was prevalent in all societies across the planet; whether in primitive tribes, or enormous governments such as the Romans, Greeks Egyptians, Chinese and Indian.
The members of the aristocracies were the politicians of their day. They were just as corrupt as the politicians of today. The only difference between aristocrats and present day politicians is the means of the taking of office.
Aristocrats used their family membership as a source of power, and present day politicians use their Party and the process of voting as their source of power.
The people of the world know that their politicians are corrupt and harmful to their society, but they do not see a way of having a government without politicians.
THE WORLD WITHOUT POLITICIANS
Imagine a world without politicians.
This type of a world has been the dream of mankind from time immemorial. A government without politicians, a government where every citizen is equal to every other citizen, and absolutely no one has more power than anyone else is called: DEMOCRACY.
DEMOCRACY is the rallying cry of every politician who knows that every human intuitively wants a society where all people are equal. Every country in the world today calls itself DEMOCRATIC, and yet, there is not one country on the entire planet that is DEMOCRATIC.
The form of government that is closest to Democracy, is a form of government called: Representative Government. In a Representative Government the citizens have the right to elect other citizens who will then represent them in the complete government.
The Representatives make the laws and hire the officials who enforce those laws. The Representatives are the Politicians of the form of government that has come into being in the last two centuries. The Representatives have replaced the Aristocrats — but, only in name. They are just as corrupt as the aristocrats, and just as self serving.
The Representatives are more hypocritical than the Aristocrats, because they falsely tell the citizens that they will govern in favor of the people they represent. In reality, they always govern in favor of those who pay them the most.
There are a few countries that still adhere to Aristocracy as a form of government, and there are a very few where Dictators have cornered power and continue to rule. China is the most powerful dictatorial type of government.
DEMOCRACY DOES NOT EXIST
We can see that there is no democracy on the planet. We have Representative Governments, Aristocracies, Dictatorships and nothing else. Hence, the world in the beginning of the 21st Century is controlled by politicians. All Politicians are corrupt!
IF THERE WERE NO POLITICIANS, THERE WOULD BE NO WARS.
Wars are a form of activity that involves the killing and destruction of entire societies.
Human societies, by their nature, do not want war. No human, educated or uneducated, intelligent or dumb, wants to risk injury or death of his body, injury or death of his family, injury or death of his community– in order to cause injury and death of another community.
And yet, to this very day, the beginning of the 21st. Century, the people of the world are killing and wounding each other in Afghanistan and other parts of the world. This can only be because politicians rule the world.
WHY ARE POLITICIANS SO DESTRUCTIVE?
It is important to know why politicians, as a group, are so destructive to society. As the world becomes more populated, the effect of the people who govern these enormous groups of people, becomes more and more devastating.
When a politician or group of politicians governs 100 people, their effect on the surrounding world is minimal. But, when a politician or group of politicians governs 350 million people or one and a half billion people, that effect can destroy the entire living planet!
No one individual or small group of individuals should govern millions of people. The potential for global disaster is immense. It is quite possible that the Human Race may become extinct if it does not change its method of government. For example, a nuclear war could easily ensue if only a few hundred people out of seven billion people decided that they were being attacked and had to respond with the use of nuclear weapons!
It is totally insane to have governments under the leadership of a tiny percentage of the population, and, in addition, have this leadership under the control of self serving politicians who are in the hands of wealthy donors.
If we examine any living animal, we can see that its behavior is controlled by its complex nervous system. That nervous system is, in turn, controlled by almost every cell in its body. If a cell is being damaged, it emits molecules which stimulate nerve endings that send signals to the central controlling area of the nervous system. If enough signals are sent to the central controlling area, the animal takes action to protect itself.
We can see that the actions which control the survival of the animal are the result of billions of messages sent to the controlling area of the nervous system. This is an example of Democracy in action: every cell in the body participates in the control of the animal. The animal is not in the control of a few cells which respond to pleasant stimuli such as cash or pockets of power.
Human society which is in the control of politicians is like a human being whose behavior is controlled by the use of drugs. Whoever provides the drugs is the Brain and controlling force of that human being.
IF THERE WERE NO POLITICIANS, WEALTH WOULD BE DISTRIBUTED EQUALLY TO ALL
In the World today, the inequality of wealth is growing by the hour.
The Rich get richer and the Poor get poorer.
This is, definitely, an apt description of the world in the beginning of the 21st. Century. Throughout the World, with the exception of China, wealth is being horded by the super rich and the poor are migrating to urban areas to join the extreme poor.
This is the result of societies being led by a few – a few whose only interest is the satisfaction of the super-rich. This few are the Politicians who have convinced the many that their actions are in favor of the many, when, in reality, their actions are in favor of the very few super rich. Ultimately, this will lead to civil war, as can be seen in Thailand today.
The Thai government is a combination of Aristocracy and Representative Government and that government favors the super rich. The poor Thai people are now in revolt against their repressive government.
Without politicians, wealth would be distributed equitably. Those that worked would receive a much greater share than those that did not. The super rich would not be protected by the power of governments. The workers and producers of the world, freed from the tyrany of government would enjoy lavish material wealth, and would have the freedom to develop their spiritual and cultural lives.
It does not take much imagination to calculate the immense wealth produced by humans and wasted on wars and programs that only help the extremely rich. Without politicians, life on this planet would be the equivalent of heaven.
HOW TO GET RID OF POLITICIANS
We have learned that the activities of politicians are seriously detrimental to the health and well being of societies. We can see that despite their small numbers they have an abnormal amount of power designed to benefit the super rich and harm the average person. The politicians must be destroyed.
THE MOVEMENT TOWARDS COMMENTARY
Everywhere in the world today, there is a call for commentary on all issues. On the Internet, in the Media, such as television, newspapers, radio, there is a constant call for each person to make a comment concerning the quality of what is being done.
The apparent reason for these calls for comment is to improve sales — sales of products and sales of services. It is as though providers of products and services were saying; “Tell us what you don’t like and we will improve!” What is really happening is that the market is too large to analyze and changing too rapidly to provide buyer satisfaction. The “Tell us!” and “We’d like to know!” requests are calls for consumer assistance. Sellers have lost their ability to satisfy the consumer.
In the area of politics, the same process is occurring. Politicians want to know what the public wants — up to a point! They want to satisfy the public, but they do not want to endanger their source of income from their benefactors.
The politicians analyze the complaints of their constituents and then fabricate excuses and lies in order to make their constituents comfortable with the ongoing economic and social disasters around them. We see President Obama almost daily, giving contorted explanations for why there is growing unemployment, home foreclosures and soldiers dying in Afghanistan. The lies and camouflage is comical in its absurd logic.
WE NEED MORE
The people of the world, however, need more than comments. The people of the world need the ability to govern themselves. They need to eradicate the entire system of Politicians, which is falsely called “Representative Government.” Politicians only represent their sources of income, not the people.
In order to rid the world of Politicians, the people must gain the right to make and enforce laws. This power will not be given up easily by the Politicians. Like the poor people of Thailand, the people of the West will have to fight for that power.
Fortunately, however, they have the power of the computer and the internet, FACEBOOK and TWITTER.
These social media sites were used in the Middle East to get rid of long standing dictators.
The next step is to demand that the people vote by computer on every law! This is being done today in three small Baltic countries.
Every law should be scrutinized and either passed or failed, only by the voting citizens of the country–by computer! (If we can bank with our computers, we can vote with our computers.)
This change will not come easy because the politicians do not want democracy. But, it is up to the public to demand democracy! Writing laws, publishing laws, voting on laws by “we the people” is possible and do-able. Let us do it!
