Possibly - Never Again. . .

Will We Ever Again Have Leaders Caring More For The Common Good, Than “*”?    [ Where “*” = “Party,” or “Career,” or “Money,” or “Ideology,” or. . . ]


I keep hoping, but since the 1st and 2nd generations of our Founders, I haven't seen any.  Have you?  Since the corporations became defined as “humans” in the mid-late 1800's, the Common Good has steadily become less and less of a priority for our leaders, whereas the “hidden” paradigm of profits-over-everything has become, (now completely out of control,) the overwhelming priority - Especially since the creation of, the growing influences of, and the corruptions by, the Military-Industrial Complex, (including a growing list of other shared Boards of Directors' corporations.)

I, like many in my generation, (I'm 59,) have watched as our nation has gone from a beacon of hope, to an oppressing Empire of death and destruction for the many, and unprecedented profits for the very-very few.  We have seen the population double in our lifetimes, (and I can remember my parents worrying about over-population when I was a child.)  We've seen our nation become the #1 polluter, and most imprisoned nation, on the planet, (and in all of the planet's written history,) - All within the time span of just one generation.

Yes - We won this last election - It was a pendulum-swing smackdown of out-of-control corporate greed - But - The corporate mind set is the same as the Borg's - They will not stop, not without real punishment, and sane controls.  One can not even begin to wrap their mind around the crisis we face today, without fully understanding that the corporations see the Constitutional safeguards, protecting individual liberties and freedoms, the of balance of power, the separation of church and state, and the original intent of the federal regulatory systems - as “enemies” - to their “right to uncontrolled maximized profits.”

They not only need to be stopped - They need to be punished.
A rational constructive punishment, and control - Is not revenge.
It is the proof of a strong, healthy, and reality-based government.
