a fucking good idea
A Fucking Good Idea.
If there is one thing I do regret about being a civilized man, is that we are all active parts in a system which works on different levels. Each of which is often well isolated from the other, meaning that what one does inside the upper level is kept secret to the lower one. Albeit there are connections between the two layers, obviously, not all “cogs” are allowed to pass informations back and forth.
I do believe politics is not the top level at all. I am not going deeper into what’s on top now being politics the focus of “Split” lyrics.
What makes me angry and does it deeply [PART ONE]
We are all paying for what decisions politics make, we are all on the edge every time, and we do pay the consequences of men and women who are being paid like kings and queens who do not really carry any responsibility in the end.
They appear to be untouchable even if they are identifiable as responsible, they do squander the money we all citizens put into the nation. They do not even hide behind their incapability and inadequacy in leading the country, they just shit onto us all, once they got voted.
What makes me angry and does it deeply [PART TWO]
Positioning is everything when you want to launch a brand onto the marketplace.
Politics is branding, and they do know it well. Politicians stuck in TV Shows, Radio Shows, football matches, everywhere is televised exposure you find the tick settling every day more into the mind of the simple people. The same simple people who wants to shake hands to those ticks politics delivers unashamedly every goddamn election campaign.
Reading sets you free, and if you read (not talking about reading novels of course) you won’t ever feel like shaking hand to a tick who is making money because the are citizens who work for real and pay taxes; citizens from which politicians pull their part (their fat part) away.
To me, the way they lead the nation compared to the way they take the money from tax payers is no difference from stealing, no difference at all.
So, when a crook is such, cheating takes lying and hiding. I am fucking sick of not being able to choose for good people to talk for the country. Thing is that it seems that good people would not ever even wonder to take part to politics.
Once, in the ancient Greece, being a man of politics (a public man) was not a job, it was a mission and no one ever took any money for doing that.
I just wonder, what if we could go back to that habit. Just wonder.
I do believe this all tendency of cheating the country by cheating their people is taking us all far away form politics and their lies. Every year almost the half of voters, just stays home instead of giving their vote. I do blame that attitude, and it looks like many people just do not care, as if they would need to go back to monarchy or authoritarianism; like democracy was felt as a big lie.
Music just does’t change things but it helps keeping the attention higher on certain matters. Also, the thing is that main stream music nowadays appears to be empty and deviant from that urging feeling I am talking about, from all those good ideas that someway shaped things differently around the end of the last century.
I am hoping for a wake-up call to come as soon as possible. It can’t be the real hunger, what makes us fighters; it has to be the power of an idea, a fucking good one.
