The cockroach is a formidable animal. They are known for being able to survive on limited resources like the glue from the back of postage stamps. Some can go without air for 45 minutes.
Is has been suggested that these creatures will "inherit the earth" if we humans were to blow ourselves up. However, what such scientists refuse to recognize is that they already have.
Let’s look at the facts.
They feed on human acquired food and can leave an offensive odor. Check.
They can also passively transport microbes on their body surfaces including those that are potentially dangerous to humans, particularly in environments such as hospitals. Check.
Because of their long, persistent association with humans, cockroaches are frequently referred to in art, literature, folk tales and theater and film. In Western culture, cockroaches are often depicted as vile and dirty pests. Their size, long antennae, shiny appearance and spiny legs make them disgusting. I know of several just like this so; check.
Although some features aren’t compatible, I see no reason why not to think that many of these things are walking among us, posing as humans, but in reality plotting our demise with mad schemes such as ‘public healthcare’, ‘religiosity’ and ‘wars’.
The ones I am talking about are of course politicians.
Have you read Franz Kafka's The Metamorphosis? In it a man is transformed overnight into a cockroach-like creature. He views himself as repulsive in his new identity and I can certainly relate.
When I entered politics many years ago I did so with a pretty dim-witted naive look at things. Of course I knew already back then that the world was messed up and that politicians in general were evil incarnate, but I had no idea how bad things really were. Worse still is what politics does to you as a human being.
You see politics is partly about what the elitists call “compromise” which in reality is another word for finding the right coalition by bribing, threatening and in other ways convince others of your idea and then make them vote to support you.
Partly it is about doing almost the opposite i.e. thrash-talk or stab those you don’t like who are in the way. Sometimes the stabbing part is literal, but mostly it’s about finding some negative thing about their past, character or views you can exploit to your advantage.
When acting out these characteristics of politics step by step your soul gets sucked out and if it goes on long enough sooner or later that person looking back at you from the mirror is a stranger - a vile beast that will sell his mother for a couple of additional votes.
Someone might argue that this is sort of common practice in all jobs and that ‘politics’ is the same no matter what you do. This is wrong.
Ever seen a really hardcore soap opera like Falcon Crest or Melrose Place? Intrigues everywhere, everyone is sleeping with everyone, there are murders, frame-jobs etc. etc. That’s nothing. Take one of those shows, the worse one you can think of and multiply it with thousand and maybe, perhaps, take out the murders and that’s politics.
What do you think such an environment does to a person?
I would even go so far as to say that sociopathic thinking, anti-human behavior and inferiority complex are the cornerstones of any ‘good’ politician. The higher up in the food chain you get, the more your lifeblood drains away and the more that despicable cockroach takes over. To be a famous and very high-profile politician means, per automatic, that you’re one of the most evil people around.
Maybe I am a bit too condescending towards cockroaches; you can actually find good things to say about them if you look hard enough…
The sad part is that I actually where a very good politician… However I almost never compromised about my beliefs, even voting against my own party on several occasions. This, as anyone ever been in politics knows, is the cardinal sin - the worst atrocity possible is to not follow the stream, and especially horrific it is when it comes to elitists benefits. I got a whole government body to say no to a lavish excursion and several days of feasting at a castle one time, oh the looks I got from my own party members would have made Medusa proud.
Needless to say the bullying was massive for many years, but had nothing to do with me eventually leaving. I just got fed up with ignorant enemies of reality thinking they are someone just because other idiots have elected them.
And you cannot really do anything or accomplish a single thing without walking down the soul-sucking lane. You need to be despicable and be able to do whatever it takes in order to change that which is despicable. I didn’t want to be that person or take that many years out of my life for the goal of maybe change things a little.
Ever wondered why so many youngsters leave political parties and politics in general and instead focuses on single issue like the environment, animals or freedom of speech? This is why.
I think it was on the TV-show ‘Bones’ one of the scientists said that if there are aliens out there, they are far more likely to have cockroach-like qualities than be similar to us. That is probably true, but if you want to go and look for such qualities in a humanoid look no further than to your local government.
Taken from above, this might be one of the best descriptions of a politician ever written:
They can also passively transport microbes on their body surfaces including those that are potentially dangerous to humans, particularly in environments such as hospitals.
