Who They Gonna Hurt? Like Any
Carnivorous Animal, The Vulnerable.
unemotional and indifference towards the vulnerable in
our society is blatant, they even, without restraint,
shout it from the rooftops. Yet still, they get away with
lowering taxes on wealthy corporate bodies while gutting
safety nets for human bodies. They manipulate the masses
just as any religion or cult controls its flock, with the
use of fear. When are we going to grow up and tell them
THEY ARE WRONG, malevolence is wrong?
My guess is, not
for quite some time; especially when you consider
Israel's recent election results, Bibi Netanyahu won
again using the good old fashion Right-Wing ploy, FEAR!
And so, the human
misery will continue for the Right-Wing controlled Israel
and for we who live in the USA, controlled by the
Right-Wing House and Senate.
The human misery
will continue and so will the sadness it brings.
Until maybe, just
maybe, one day we will all finally grow up and not allow
the Right-Wing or any war mongering, power hungry entity,
control our vote using fear.
A desperate Netanyahu used fear to grab the most seats
in the election, but his rejection of a Palestinian state
will further isolate the Jewish state.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin (Bibi) Netanyahu won a
big election Tuesday, but he won ugly by staking out a
new position on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict that is
likely to harm his nation in the months ahead.
A reckoning is comingfaster than expectedfor
Netanyahu, his Likud Party and maybe even for the State
of Israel itself.
Complete returns showed that Netanyahus Likud Party
won 29 seats in the Knesset to 24 seats for the Zionist
Union (formerly Labor) Party headed by Isaac Herzog, who
ran a more spirited campaign than expected but almost
certainly fell short of the support necessary to form a
Israels president, Reuven Rivlin, whose job
consists mostly of presiding over elections, said not
long after the polls closed that he wants a coalition
government and has given Netanyahu, Herzog and the other
party leaders a couple of days to engage in a frenzy of
(largely unconsummated) deal-making. But Herzogs
parliamentary math problem got worse as the evening wore
on, and its hard to see where he finds the
mandates (seats) to prevail.
love and fear can hardly exist together, if we must
choose between them, it is far safer to be feared than
loved."Niccolò Machiavelli, The Prince, 1513
is a widely used negative term to characterize
unscrupulous politicians of the sort Machiavelli
described in The Prince. The book itself gained enormous
notoriety and wide readership because the author seemed
to be endorsing behavior often deemed as evil and
immoral. Because of this, the term
"Machiavellian" is often associated with
deceit, deviousness, ambition, and brutality.
