I am not a political team player, because I firmly believe in the ‘health for everyone first’ ideology that clearly rises above tribalism. You may call me an idealist, but if you hang around this journal long enough, then you will understand the untrue nature of that seemingly sensible claim.
What I express here is a simple and sensible foundation that is being utterly ignored by humanity for the sake of brutally shortsighted leverage wielded at an overwhelmingly complicated degree. Humanity is like a house off of its foundation, and that obviously needs to change via genuine leadership.
Bill Maher can be hit or miss for me.
Obviously in this case, he hit the nail on the head, and I feel compelled to ripple his righteous and well-expressed words for maximum reach.
The primary problem at least herein the United States is the massive corporatist theft across the political spectrum, because we have no genuine leadership — we just have human pigs at the trough aggressively gorging upon our societal leverage, while disguising that hideous affair as civilized leadership.
Why do we have continuously growing inflation? Sure there are multiple reasons, but the injection of six trillion taxpayer dollars in recent times (as Mr. Maher properly illustrates) plays a very strong part — and nobody is talking about it, at least for all intents and purposes.
Basically, more money added to the system devalues the dollar. Too many people believe our government can simply print whatever amount of money they want with impunity. If that is true, then why not just make us all billionaires and be done with it? Because they cannot do that without destroying the dollar.
So the dollar is worth less, and it takes more of them to buy any good or service, which is terribly problematic upon factoring in the heinously fixed wages over the span of decades.
For two of those decades, our government (i.e. we the taxpayers) reportedly spent one trillion dollars on the war in Afghanistan, and despite the lives horribly lost and that 1,000 billion dollars spent, the Taliban took back the reigns of power within days of the U.S. exit there. Clearly, that war was at least a terrible scam against the American taxpayers, and there is no loud-enough cry for justice. Think what a trillion dollars could do for the many poor people in our nation during that span of time. There are other such wars (e.g. Ukraine, Yemen, and so on) also being heavily funded by the American people.
I could go on, but brevity and my busy life demands that list suffices for now.
This is not merely a national issue. The U.S. dollar is the global reserve currency, so this terribly selfish and reckless economic distortion has an equally terrible reach around the world, where the oligarchs of all other nations basically engage in their flavor of selfish “leadership” to serve their own power increase and the highly aggressive competition to secure it.
There is a sound solution against greed and the real mental illness that is power addiction, and readers familiar with my work likely already understand where I am going with this, but this post is long enough, and you really should include Mr. Maher’s content in your experience here.
Feel free to hangout within our growing community to participate in exploring that proposed solution.✌️
