Are we still referring to “left-center-right” positioning? Whatever the definitions are for the motives behind each categorical “-ism” on the mythical scale is so skewed and individually interpreted anyway, that it doesn’t make sense to refer left and right anymore. In fact, adhering to this binary illusion only limits our perception of what has happened, and what is possible. Abandoning this language in favour of simple truths is what I strive to spread around. In fact, why not try to use unconventional language to re-frame and better define what the hell we’re all talking about here? The only consequence is education and understanding.
So, it’s as simple as this: conscious evolution VS. destruction. Period. Enough time has gone by. Now is when this massive shift has to occur.
Does democracy sound good? Do we want to achieve a functioning democracy? Because what we’ve had so far is deep-rooted disgusting plutocracy. And let’s not forget the (plutocratic government-funded) CBC provides just enough satire and tidbit “information” to create the illusion and reinforce the myths that make it seem like what we have is working.
I look at it this way: if a government professional is forced to vote the same as her party leader, instead of acting on behalf of the people who voted her in, that is not democracy. As we’ve seen happen in the case of the NDP, she cannot even voice criticism towards outrageous warring (like in Isreal)! No. This is not for me. Any party that upholds practices like that, are obviously only interested in upholding the plutocracy that is ruining everything for everyone…everywhere.
Last night I watched a great documentary by Tom Shadyac, the guy behind Ace Ventura, Evan Almighty, the Nutty Professor, and other huge hollywood movies. The movie included lots of cool behind the scenes shots from his life with movie stars, and also included lots of great interviews with names like Howard Zinn and Noam Chomsky. It’s called I Am and it’s on Canadian Netflix now. It’s worth a watch.
