Why does it seem every solution must be political? At least as seen from the articles in the papers, this valley is fixated on political process and so-called political solutions. But are the politicians, government agents and bureaucrats our problem-solvers and gods really? The people pay the politicians, government agents and bureaucrats to do what? To create problems, regulations, and inconvenience for the people. Is this what we are paying for? Why would anyone in their right mind pay someone to give them a speeding ticket, force them to pay their salary and the fine, and regulate all aspects of their lives? Yet, the people are paying for this.
Yes, I realize we do this because we think we gain as well. We think we get roads and societal order and peace. We think we get back what we put in. Right? Not! We get back crumbs after they pay themselves, the enforcers and the staff members to “govern” our lives.
So my question is what are they doing that the people could not do better? The people build roads, the political government extracts our money so that they can pay themselves and hire a company to build the roads. The people teach, the political government extracts our money so that they can pay themselves and hire a teacher to teach. The people deliver mail and packages, the political government extracts our money so that they can pay themselves and hire a company to deliver the mail. The people innovate new ideas to make life better, the political government extracts our money so that they can pay themselves and hire a company to build more weapons to destroy our neighbors. When will this ancient form of political government be seen for what it really is? It is just a business that extracts our money to do whatever is deemed necessary and we let them.
The people are doing so much better. There are stories everywhere if we look. All humanity is benefiting from one another. It is the people who are solving problems without the help of a coercive political system that extracts our money. So what can YOU do to help solve the world’s many problems? Every small choice you make is a step in the right direction. We do not have time to fight each other or fight the politicians, government agents and bureaucrats. We do have time to listen to others, help others when needed, and make better choices. This is what will change our world for the better, not the political coercive government that extracts our money and energy. Whose pyramids are you building?
