Weapons of mass collaboration

Many people, also in Sweden, have low confidence in politicians and the elite in power. And that’s a good sign, but what most of you don’t know is how close the power elite really are to each other. There are journalists sleeping with and getting married to politicians, you have CEO’s going to party’s with their union counterparts, you have marketing people switching between different political camps and you have elected officials that basically don’t interact with anyone else but other elected officials. In a small country like Sweden this is a problem in many ways and you do not need to be a conspiracy buff to figure out what happens when the same appointed people are sitting together in countless different boardrooms. Someone might argue that it’s because so few are interested in politics, but that’s just BS. You need to move up thru the jugend ranks and you need to grease, lick and sometimes lie your way there. All the way giving up any kind of decent ideology you might have had from the start. And the businesspeople are not much better, they want to keep their power, wealth and status and have no problem what so ever to hold hands with socialist or unions. They might say different things, they might act as they are enemies, but in reality they are a neatly packed little gang of thief’s and opportunists giving each other benefits and high salaries.

So it’s not very surprising that some union leaders get caught in the melted cheese or that executives end up doing this or that. They live in their own little world and you might think you know this and might even nod when you read this post, but in reality you have no idea. Basically imagine the worst crappy soap opera you know, take that times ten and maybe, just maybe, take away the murders, and you have what goes in among the power elite in Sweden.

Wanja Lundby-Wedin, politicians using government credit cards in strip clubs and high ranking people refusing to acknowledge taking part in certain decisions is only the symptom. The real sickness is the whole system. I know you are still going to vote for some of those out-of-touch-with-reality people as you always do and if you are a socialist you might argue that this is what happens with capitalism, but that’s the same thinking that got us those officials we have and the system that exists. The only way of getting rid of the corruption and power hungry elitists is to give the power to the people. If you can decide over you own life, then we are getting somewhere. As long as someone else gets your money and rule our lives, there will be no change. So if you really think, as I do, that we have a system that is wrong and elected politicians that doesn’t listen, you should argue for you. You should be your own king. You should decide what to buy, what to drink, were to live and what to do with your money. If you don’t think you should have these rights, then, by all means, keep doing what you always have done, vote for more government and give away your freedom. But then you should also not complain, you are mainly at fault for Wanja and the rest of the horde, don’t blame them; you gave them your power. Should they decline Godlike benefits and the power to dictate people’s life? Would you? So either argue and take back what is yours, or shut up and go back to voting and mumbling complaints like you always do.
