ALTERNATING CURRENTS

It's funny how people talk and don't see what they're saying. It is also inevitable that the irony of the universe will forever stultify all our rational intentions. I heard a progressive interview about poor people in crime areas needing vouchers to move out. Then someone mentioned that the conservatives would be mad if poor people were being given vouchers to move into high class, expensive areas, virtually for free. For doing nothing. For doing nothing but being disabled or deprived. So, then the other person said something like, "Well, no, we wouldn't want them to move THAT far up. We would want them to be moved into less poor areas - not into actual rich areas."

Which ends up being discrimination. So, what will happen, then? The whole voucher idea will be rejected entirely, on legal grounds. Because it was an absolutism. A voucher for every poor person is an absolutist concept, which will tend to get attacked on every side, in the USA, (precisely because it is so). I personally think that vouchers are a stupid, after-the-fact bandaid idea. I'm not interested in redistribution of wealth after it happens. Yes, I am interested in fairness in the real world, in real politics. But what I am deeply interested in is a new economics - in the first place.

I am beginning to wonder if it might be a natural law, that every time progressives seek to move forward in time and in ethics, there will always be something limitting the ideas, which ends up making the progressives look like moralistic, controlling prudes. Looking back on the past, because hindsight is 20-20, that's how all the progressives eventually end up being painted. By people sitting on the riches of many of their endeavours.

But, in retrospect, the endeavours of many progressives do seem to have been Puritan and callous, hewing to higher callings, like of humanitarianism. In fact, this should be looked at as a barometer of how blind THE REST OF THE SOCIETY was at the time, completely unconcerned with such issues or questions. Rather, much of the populace was interested in survival or greed, if they had the luxury for greed. It really is not fair to judge the past so much. One thing we do when we judge the past: We ignore that the same problems which existed then do continue now, in deeper, stealtheir ways. Banksters are still carpet-bagging us.

Look at the systems. Look at the mentalities. Mentalities based on philosophies - enabling mentalities. Look at the alternative philosophies. Stop blaming individuals. Look for coalitions. Go beyond the black and white. The sophisticated elite proliferate upon subtleties of grey - and colour - depriving us all of such nature. The finest profit - the subtlest means - the greatest art - the ultimate capital - is funnelled up to the top, while we are left scraping, when those things could flower profusely in our own common domain. See this - and see ahead.

Alternate energy. Alternate economic structures. Alternate humanity.

Dare to push into the future despite the public scorn!
