Have Politics Ever Been Useful to the People?

Hey everyone, it’s me R.S. Noel, coming to you today with another political post! I’ll be dissecting the very important topic of politics, and the pros and cons of their existence. It’s a pretty big issue in today’s society. There are countless heated debates in America over “Republicans vs. Democrats”, or passing a new health-reform bill, or even just the differences found between different groups of people. This is the good news; because there should be people speaking up more often. It’s definitely a heated topic for some of us, where as, it really doesn’t matter for others of us. Of course, you will always see differences in our society. It’s quite obvious after you’ve lived long enough, that you will be able to begin to eventually see right through the veneer of lies and deception that society is constantly spoon-feeding us. 

You must remember that the problems in the world are caused by our human stupidity. We are all humbly at different levels of stupidity (yes, even the geniuses of our world. Think about it for a second…though they were highly intelligent in fields such as mathematics and science, they weren’t always necessarily socially adept at holding even a common-everyday conversation with other human beings. In order to survive in the natural world, one would need to be an amazing orator). Sometimes (oftentimes), you will face people who think that they’re higher (or better) than the rest of humanity (inflated ego). This is what we call the inferiority-complex. You see, life is full of conundrums; it just depends on what society sees as the truth.

But the truth of the fact is that people can be quite foolish in their design. They can feel confident when everything’s stacked against them in life, they can feel superior when they’ve always had it easy in life, but in the end, none of it really matters. What matters is how you react to your situation; because let’s face it, nobody else really has your back. You’re the only one responsible for your life and the lives of the people you love.

So how does this all tie in with today’s topic of discussion?

What you don’t realize sometimes, is that those in positions of power are merely human beings like you and me.

They have lives, and people who they love, that they have to worry about and look after. They’re main concern isn’t us.

Let that sink in.

In some way, you’ve always knew that this was the truth. Throughout the world’s history, this has always been the truth. The job of politics is to ensure that their country or nation survives; this means helping businesses thrive. Businesses, after all, make the global economy grow; and that’s what their supporting. People are on the very bottom of their “To-Do-List”. After all, the only people who have ever helped you in your life were most likely those who were in your immediate social circle (parents, friends, siblings, your city’s local homeless shelter, volunteers in your community, etc.). The truth of the matter is, nobody is helping us in politics. Nobody in politics, or in life in general, are championing for you to “make it” in life. Nobody is rooting for you (besides mothers and fathers. Parents are the only reason why society has held up, to be honest). It’s all about being the best at what we do, about meeting expectations which are unrealistic for many of us. It’s a game which none of us can win, because only a select few get to the top.

With that stated, we can make things better by leveraging our attitudes in how we see society and also how we use the public rights we have as citizens. To be able to protest is one of the oldest forms, in America, of speaking up against those in positions of power who may abuse their power without regulation or regards for other human life.

So what’s the solution? Well that’s the age-old question many humans have asked in order to achieve some form of utopia in their home, community, or country. There are plenty of things that are facing us in our daily activities that stop us from further pursuing these goals, money being one of the chief problems of the world’s state of being today. But at the end of the day, we’re all humans with problems. What you may think is right or correct, ends up being false and harmful behind the veneer of entitlement of the wealthy and those in positions of power. 

Always remember to take the high-road when you feel yourself falling deeper into life’s many complicated quarrels and issues. After all, we are all just human beings trying to make it through this experience we call life. Take a deep breath, smile, and tell people you are doing just fine. Otherwise, you’ll find yourself losing control of your life.

 

Forever in Your Debt,

R.S. Noel
