What could be the logic?
    #1108753 - 12/04/02 02:00 AM (14 years, 7 months ago)

I dont know what, if any, is the governments "plan" for us... But it seems to me like they are after controll. I havent been able to comprehend what motivation they have..
Why would you want to own someone? Why would you want to live in a city filled with smog and noise and meaningless fashion trends and crime.
Could it be that they too are lost in the insanity that has been created?
There seems to be so many ways that people could live happier and more peacefully... I dont understand why they would want to keep things so bleak.
It makes me think of some terrible demon that feeds on frustration.

Makes NO sense to me.

^ Just a rant, comment if u please ^

The government likes it the way it is because they make fat salaries and live like kings while all the taxpayers work their asses off just so they can support the politicians. People bitch about payin taxes to support people on welfare but I can bet a whole lot more money goes in the pockets of politicians then for food stamps for poor people. I say abolish government. The whole reason we fought the revolutionary war was for taxation without representation and now two hundred years later were in the same boat.

I was thinking more about what causes the motivation for money, and that kind of power. It seems irrational to me.

Here's an interesting quote from William S. Burroughs :

"We have a new type of rule now. Not one-man rule, or rule of aristocracy or plutocracy, but of small groups elevated to positions of absolute power by random pressures and subject to political and economic factors that leave little room for decision.

They are representatives of abstract forces who have reached power through surrender of self. The iron-willed dictator is a thing of past.

There will be no more Stalins, no more Hitlers.

The rulers of this most insecure of all worlds are rulers by accident. Inept, frightened pilots at the controls of a vast machine they cannot understand, calling in experts to tell them which buttons to push. "
