In this age of information you have to choose to be ignorant. It is obvious to anyone except the blatantly ignorant that man has and is effecting the world climate by unchecked population growth, unchecked pollution and unregulated consumption of natural resources.
Not only is mankind decimating the environment, but through continual war and genocide with more and more advanced weaponry in the hands of religious and political extremist we are approaching an apocalyptic destruction of societies.
Meanwhile governments stand by fiddling while the world burns.
Initially some governments were founded with good intentions. But actually, governments never end up about the good of the people. Governments become a product of men that wish to mold societies to their own ideals – ideals that best benefit themselves.
Politicians that have the ability and charisma to influence others eventually set themselves up as a ruling class – a political royalty.
Politicians always sell the goods that they are primarily concerned with the welfare of the people; but in the end the people exist for the good of the government – and the government is always about the politicians at the top and the wealthy that can influence them. Even in the great socialism experiments the people in charge always decided for ‘the grater good’ – themselves being included at the top tier of ‘the grater good.’
Term limits are the only means of breaking up the ruling class and reestablishing a democratic government.
presidents come and go; but
the real political royalty exist in the Senate and the House. You might say that the Presidency is our House
of Commons and the Congress is the House of Lords. America
