The conservative mindset of sticking with what ‘works’ despite the dynamic changes occurring in the environment is like trying to fill a bucket of water that is already filled. If the bucket is filled it cannot retain any more water! If you get another bucket you can start to fill that bucket. Duh?
The liberal mindset of altering what ‘works’ to meet the needs of dynamic environmental changes allows another bucket to be put alongside of the original bucket to retain the water. Conservatively speaking, resources (supply), whether they are apparently available or not, are always limited and must be manipulatedto meet the demands; and this is where those (the corporate capitalists) who control the flow of resources make a profit from the propaganda that resources are limited.
Liberally speaking, resources (supply), whether they are apparently available or not, are always abundant because of new ways of tapping the already available resources to meet the demands; and this is where those (the true capitalists) who control the flow of resources make a profit from the fact that because of the new ways of tapping resources that our resources are abundant!
The courts of the USA are notoriously 30 years behind social changes because of conservative ‘values’. Values that are stagnant and unmoving because of sticking with what politicians decide is what ‘works’. We, the people, needto remove the ‘stick-in-the-mud’ egomaniacs that resist change for their own selfish gain. Make it punishable for ALL representatives who conduct OUR business to their own selfish gain.
When these selfish representatives leave office they take their knowledge to the private sector and the corporations gain knowledge of how government works so they can effectively ‘grease the wheels’ to their advantage. Money gets exchanged from business into government for the apparent ’greater good’ of all. True, yet someone in the middle always makes a profit from ‘our’ greater good! This, in itself, creates more problems because government cannot effectively function without investing in its own society. Infrastructure, job development and healthcare checks and balances MUST be instituted in order to positively affect its constituency.
The main problem is that our representatives are the ones who decide what punishment that they get. How can anyone punish themselves for actions that will ultimately benefit themselves and their families? We need to enforce and punish our representatives for acts against the people who put them into office. Until then, nothing will change. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D. (Spirituality Guidance Channel)
