Destroy and Rebuild
Just a quick post, because this website is meant to be about trials in logic after all, not what was inevitable.
That Drumpf got elected was not illogical, it was the culmination of a shitty public education system that isn’t aimed at producing citizens that can’t think critically.
How did they arrive at a shitty situation in which their public education was this bad?
By a group of elites that realise that in order to get richer, other people need to get poorer. And how can you guarantee that people en-masse get poorer?
By making them dumber of course. America’s reputation, or at least stereotype or ignorant, fat people stems from somewhere, and ultimately its foundation is the American public school system.
By not giving people the tools to understand the system in which they live in, and how they can benefit from that system, or.. even what their place in that system before they can even think about changing it, means that people won’t know what needs to change, let alone how to change it.
There’s a reason why those very same elites that forge such a situation don’t send their children into public schools, and it’s because they ultimately want to make more money, and if they’re not taught the right things, raised in the right environment that show how the country actually works…then they won’t have the tools to ensure they can continue to make money.
You might be thinking that I’m saying that these ‘elites’ are Republicans. Hahaha no.
Republicans, for the most part are stupid. Most people are aware of that. What the elites do however is create a neat bundle of sophistry and present their real agenda to the common republicans which end up pushing it themselves without really knowing how it will affect them.
We don’t need to teach evolution in schools; an image that you need to be religious to be president; the idea that the definition of the word ‘socialism’ actually means communism, and that communism = oppression. The very worrying mathematical equation that it is somehow possible to lower taxes whilst providing more services that are not publicly funded whilst also making them more affordable, whilst also not increasing government debt; or that corporate competition will provide morality, and in relation to the previous point- that if such services were provided by the corporations it would be cheaper and provide better service than if it was done through public channels.
Republicans believe all of this, mostly because words and mathematics seem to confuse them, and so essentially can’t be bothered adding up all the details to understand for themselves that it is not possible.
However, the elites that are guiding the Republicans, of course know that’s not possible, but when your aim is to make yourself richer whilst making other people poorer, it doesn’t have to be a balanced equation.
In fact their real equation is that if government is smaller then the government can be less efficient at passing regulation that limits their profit making potential.
If government is smaller then they can’t provide necessary social services which lead to the betterment of lives for everyone in the country.
& if there is no betterment of lives, then people will struggle more to live a life that they want, and will likely not concentrate on working rather than further education or trying to understand things that don’t immediately affect them, but yet may affect their children.
& ultimately people received less education about the system in place around them and how they fit into it all, and because they don’t have the ability to think so much end up buying goods & services that they don’t really need, or end up enrolling in ‘get ahead’ schemes because they don’t have the capacity to realise that they won’t work nor that the people in charge of selling such things only care about profit.
Think about Drumpf’s own Drumpf University.
Drumpf may be stupid, but also whether unconsciously or consciously, he is doing things in the exact way that you CAN do things in America. Avoiding paying taxes, creative accounting that means that because of 1 loss he doesn’t have to pay income tax for the next 18 years or so.
Drumpf “That makes me smart”
Well, yes, in a way that does. He’s not wrong there. He’s taking advantage of a system that was built by people like him (but not him), the elites, that have been guiding Republican agenda to make necessary changes within the legal system that ensures the rich stay rich and the poor stay not just poor but unaware that they will be poor in the future if they keep voting for people that will make the legal framework & general system work against them.
As much bullshit as Drumpf talks, he’s not wrong.
I’m not advocating him, I’m just saying that he HAS, whether you like it or not, got a point. He is able to take advantage of a situation BECAUSE people like him have created that advantage to take.
Duping people in private universities. Again a ridiculous gap that has been left in the education due to lack of regulation from the standard education.
By the way, it’s so nice to see so many chinese friends taking an interest in the election. Almost as if they wanted to have some say themselves.
But like in everything, I’m sure the chinese gov. is monitoring their own people. Even when there were the demonstrations against Japan, there were many Japanese cars that were damaged that were in fact ch. gov. cars with ch. gov. number plates. Exasperation & disappointment towards another country or their government may also be veiled disappointment towards their own gov.
Why would the Chinese gov. be monitoring people that take an interest, especially if there’s too much interest in the American elections? Because the system that allowed Drumpf to be voted in is the same system that the CCP has been promoting since 1978. Yes, that whole ‘opening up policy’ was directly brought over from the USA with Deng Xiao Ping’s little trip over to America.
Of course they renamed it ‘Socialism with Chinese characteristics’ which many people know that study Chinese politics and government strategy is code for ‘Capitalism’.
What is not noted however, is that the real point of it is to ensure that those that are in power stay in power by constantly changing certain policies to ensure that the wealth and power stay at the top by creating a certain level of chaos at the bottom. Misaligned focus is a way to do that. Patriotism, single minded focus against certain other countries, mis-information, propaganda, reducing the teaching of critical thinking in schools, creating a capitalist society and environment in which people need products that they don’t actually need and …reducing social services to a point where people need to work in order to survive.
If they are only focused on working, then they can’t possibly focus on changing the system in place that has them held in that position. And therefore they are more susceptible for being screwed in the future by the people at the top.
For a very obvious example- The Chinese education system is also terrible. Chinese government and business elites, also send their children abroad to study, and…specifically to American elite schools. Not to public schools, but to the elite schools. Because if it’s the elite schools that do so well in providing the right guidance for the education of elites, and it is the top America leaders that has shown China the way. As it was the top British elite that showed American leaders the way.
In fact, this is not new at all, it is simply a perfection of the system.
What Drumpf has shown, quite ironically, is that the American system IS broken. If a person like him can get elected, with all the absolute bullshit that he says, and all the terrible things he has done, it’s not because despite the fact that it is terrible people who elected him, it’s that the system in place has allowed him to do all of these things and allowed him to get away with it.
I imagine that some people DID vote for Drumpf, not because they think he is the best person to lead the country, but possibly because he is the worst.
With Hillary you are getting more of the same shit, more stagnation of Congress, more not moving forward with changing the education system, more complete halt in gun control, more dodgy arms deals which lead to future wars which eventually fuel the elites to continue to make money.
But with Drumpf you get Chaos, provided that he really can’t be controlled.
Some people that voted for Drumpf are doing so on the basis that to make things better you have to destroy and rebuild.
And who is better at destroying things than Drumpf?
