Before I start let me preface this this by saying, by most measurements or metrics, I am below median. That would indicate that most are better off than I. At least in this country. I also realize that many are not as well off.
We live in good times, look at history. Living today is better than living at anytime before. We have food from around the world. Our homes are warm or cool. We live longer, and have easier lives. The poor today live better than the wealthy of before. Jobs are plentiful, warfare is rare. The economy is growing, on the whole, we live in good times.
In terms of history, how many people had flushing toilets? We do! Toilets keep us healthy, and let us live longer. That is just the beginning of advantages we enjoy. Cars, planes, spacecraft too. The list is endless.
So why are so many people dissatisfied? I am not sure, could be simple human nature to complain. Sometimes people just like to complain, it’s their nature. Then again we have so much, maybe some think we have not enough? Could be.
When I was growing up we were taught that we are better than the Russians. I had to assume that the Russians were taught that they were better than us. In the end the space race settled the score. Today what are the measurements or metrics? Economic growth? Something different?
Culpability? Media influence. Pardon, let me rephrase that. Media influence. Could be that I repeat myself. That’s it! The media seeks to influence, to do so they repeat and repeat themselves until they influence. Why do they influence, with all this prosperity they want more. To bad they want it at the expense of others. Bubba’s basic fact. Our major media outlets are completely fascist. The logic for that statement is has been explained in the history of this blog. That brings me around full circle to the MAGA hat. Although I realize that it wouldn’t really matter what was on the hat, hate would be generated because of success. The Democrats political machine would oppose any and all opposition. I do not think anyone expected that the MAGA hat would be so successful. Well actually one person did. The creator Donald. It was the tweak “Again” that exposed the corrupt machine for what it was. For he knew it for what it was.
Again and again corruption is endlessly exposed. We are great, we just have to acknowledge it. To control the media is to control the nation. Unfortunately we do not elect who controls the media. You, I pause for dramatic effect. Yes. You either believe the media, or you don’t.
