corporate politics - presidential auctions

First written in 2016, a reminder of the nightmare of those elections:

I was tempted to title this 'Corporate Democracy', but that would be such a glaring oxymoron.

It is frustrating to witness the 'relatively' poor people of the world beating each other to death over whether to vote for Trump or Clinton in the 2nd $billion + US presidential auction.
corporate politics meets apathy

Both candidates are representing corporate interests, and a system that is in debt to a handful of trillionaires has its hands tied - unless someone has the courage to challenge the status unquo.

The unelected 1% (really far fewer than 1%) who control capital, business and media are very, very pleased when we distract ourselves with unproductive arguments, often of their making.

In the words of the Matrix trilogy, take the red pill, and wake up. The alternative is to be comfortably numb, awash with corporate advertainment, and realise, very painfully, on your death bed, that you could have been conscious for decades on the most beautiful, biodiverse world thus far discovered, surrounded by creative fellow
human beings and opportunities - and chose not to.
