Can Politics Work Without the Politician?

You Stupid Suckers - Politician speak

The quadrennium (meaning every four years – if that is even a real word) political silly season is just getting started, and both sides are getting their cheering sections warmed up. When it comes to the usual litany of political party promises and platform blather, you may have begun to notice that many of the stalwart supporters are tiring of the same old song and dance. Getting tired and skeptical of the cheering is more likely to occur with the older dogs who have been around the block (like me) than younger ones who are still digesting the media programming about how America must choose a president and a new congress… but why? Why must we do so? Will the world end if the American public does not ordain a new batch of criminal politicians to office to replace the old? Or, could we see that as an outdated idea… an obsoleting political paradigm, which is really beginning to show?

It is clear that both old and young alike are starting to choke on the poisonous stream of rhetoric pouring forth, rather than embracing it. Maybe it has something to do with the caliber of clowns composing the backdrop stable of candidates taking the stage. Many of us are asking ourselves;  “Are these really the only choices we have?”, because if it comes to one of these or nothing at all, maybe its time to just vote plan B, ‘None of the above.’  Maybe it is a sense that the entire system has been spoiled… a total loss, and there comes a time when if it has gone bad, it needs to be replaced wholesale, and that time may indeed be drawing ever closer.

Confidence in our political paradigm at an all-time low

whoah where'd that bird go? - I'm not a Politician, I'm an outsider!

Skepticism of the process is at all time high, along with an all-time low in confidence with all parties, the presidency, both houses of Congress, and all state governments. To state it simply, the population is fed up with the politician.

We all know that things, for better or worse, will always continue on as they are… until they don’t.  I’m not going to cite a bunch of statistics to back up what I am saying. Instead, I need only point out what is popularly reported, mainly in the burgeoning ‘Alt-Media’, but also by some in the global corporate media about the extent of such disillusionment.

It certainly does not require polling or research to prove such an assertion about the level of discontent. All you need do is talk to a neighbor, to realize you are not alone in feeling disgusted with the process. Real cracks are beginning to show in the fortress surrounding the political establishment in Washington DC, and many state capitals. In fact, despite appearances, the entire self-serving empire of corruption may be on life support at this point.

…In the last 100 years or so, the social order, driven by the ‘nature’ that God gave us, has favored the common people in tremendous ways.  We have realized two vitally important beneficial advances which are as follows:
1) Great advances in the production of food, shelter, and energy.  This translates into much less dependency on a top-down civil structure for our survival.
2) Loss of the elitist monopoly over the dissemination of information and knowledge; and in particular, technology. Or to put it another way… the totality of knowledge and information is now accessible to the common, meaning, written, edited, and consumed by the general population, which is something not seen before now.

We can do much better

All of this begs several questions:
Why have Americans put up with such a broken process? Why have they not spoken with a loud and firm voice to demand a better system? Why have they not called for a scrapping of the old, broken and obsolete system in favor of something new? Something which serves the interest of the people who make up the backbone of the nation.

What alternative is there to such an ineffective and corrupt system? Why should we support and continue to give allegiance to a system which offers very little, and only delivers lip service? Why even bother to vote in a self-serving system which demands that more and more of our blood flow into the offering bowl in DC, but delivers nothing in return, and instead only hinders or denies us the opportunity to enhance our purposes and our lives?

Support.. meaning acceptance of an obsolete system is failing at a record pace

Why should the American civilization continue to give the bulk of their good-will in support? The people who play by the rules and sacrifice daily to keep it all together are getting the short end of the deal. It may be better to characterize it as We-The-People are getting far less than is warranted for our steadfast and faithful support.

To begin to answer these questions, let’s examine the tenants of civilization. What forces are there to dictate that we as a people must continue to abide by the strictures of such a flawed system, and can that even be changed?  The answers are buried deep in the history of the development of civil societies over the last several millennia, whereby they have plowed the field and set the pattern which we follow today.  That would seem to indicate that we are doomed to continue on living, locked in a seemingly unfair struggle between the corrupt interests of the powerful politically privileged few, and the masses of the common, and relatively poor.

However, one must understand that all social order has evolved and developed over millennia. Social Order is not fixed, but changes over time.

Big time change is coming

Despite appearances, over that period, the development has decidedly moved toward favoring the common masses and delivering a kick in the pants to the special few, who have tended to dominate the civil order. In fact, we have gotten to a place where we are overdue for a massive change in civil order. This idea is based on a few milestone events and conditions which have come to pass in about the last 300 years. I do not have the time or space, so I can not carve into the meat of the matter with great detail, expounding on the reasons that I believe we will see a new political, social, and economic renaissance of sorts in the next few decades, but I can give you a few bones to chew on.Dumb SOB's, they don't get it! Where'd they be without a liberal politician, like me?

I mentioned evolutionary changes in paradigm in the last 300 years. Looking back, one must observe that these changes have transformed the social order from an oppressive age of kings, where the common had no more right or voice in policy matters than that of cattle, to a political age in which we now express our will through the democratic process… a huge step up for us cattle. So we’ll put that one on the top of the list. 

The Obsoleting Political Paradigm as dictated by the Natural Order

Change is inevitable… its natural and good. Consider that more recently (in the last 100 years or so), the social order, driven by the ‘nature’ that God gave us, has favored the common people in tremendous ways.  We have realized two vitally important beneficial advances which are as follows:

Politician thinks out-loud... you believe dem dumb-ass crackas eletted us!

1) Great advances in the production of food, shelter, and energy. This translates into much less dependency on a top-down civil structure for our survival.
2) Loss of the elitist monopoly over the dissemination of information and knowledge; and in particular, technology. Or to put it another way: The totality of knowledge is now accessible to the general population.

What a politician really thinks of people... "Come here and call me that to my face!"

On the surface, these two may not seem to be revolutionary developments, but one should not underestimate their significance in bringing about a revolutionary change of the social order which dictates our lives. All one need do is consider the impact that democratic process has brought over the age of kings, and what the impact of the internet (number 2 on the list) has had on the current political process, to understand where we are going. Project that trend out another decade or two and consider where we will likely be.

In many articles to come, we will drill down deep on why these are important, and we will attempt to document what their impact is as we see the era unfold. We will also be asking some very serious questions for average people to consider.
