I must say how fortunate I am, that I was raised in a given social order, in which instead of knowing hunger, I was able to accumulate wealth simply by being born and owning property in London rather than other less affluent areas of England.
i mention the above, because once upon a time not so long ago I believed my being born ln London made me better than the average person. But I have come to realise if something exists in one place It doesn't mean it exists somewhere else. And if I had been born somewhere else I may have been bombed or suffered many other catastrophes.
ok being baptised a witness was a CATASTROPHE I suffered but wasn't that because of politics? As in other lands through politics the Witnesses are banned. And is not politics why many " poor" today in England live on a level in which most have a refrigerator, television and cadgets than my rich grand-mother never had?
So what am I trying to say?
The civilization I see in my land Is the stupidity of many rich and poor alike not being satisfied, and pursuing ridiculous more wants more. Such propaganda is filled by the advertisers, selling to the rich " clothes worn by movie stars " and to the poor cheap mass production models of cloths worn by movie stars. But isn't it the political system that allows it?
i can imagine in many lands where such materialism is not so important, more families returning home from work and eating supper together as a family, then helping the children with homework and enjoying quality time together. Such families I imagine are more likely to discuss politics together, or at least discuss a worldview. ( I accept such thinking could still be big brother, but unfortunately in England I think many people are materalistic, and also more interested in T.V soap operas, reality TV, & football than discussing politics or having a family meal together.
So my point is ;-
Q) why is a government happy that citizens can think this way?
I ask the question because i am sure many who vote, put more effort in to how they wear there clothes to the election poll, than about the deeper issues of the impact of their vote. But as ex-witnesses our " Captive Minds" have been opened, and so surely if we have political alligence and vote, this should be well thought out?
Therefore back to my O.P "I have noticed many threads and posts on political inclinations," should also ask:-
A) Q) How much time do you spend on politics.
B) Q) Do you really believe your vote will matter? ( remember how we had the theocratic vote in the K.H)
