NO POLITICIAN IS WORTH YOUR LIFE

Posted: December 5, 2012 in Uncategorized

Ernest Benn once said, “Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it whether it exists or not, diagnosing it incorrectly, and applying the wrong remedy.” I am not a hundred years old, but I have lived through five general elections to think Benn was right.The politician is like the man who sit on a man’s back, choking him and making him carry him, and yet assure himself and others that he is very sorry for him and wish to ease his lot by all possible means, except by getting off his back.

But without politics, there is a frightening option; a state without politics, which inevitably will be a state without government. The kind the English philosopher calls, a “State of Nature” where mankind’s life will essentially be nasty, short and brutish.
Politics is ‘the’ necessary Evil. One we have plenty of reservations, yet our lives will be impossible without. Life is not perfect, and no matter the ‘good will’ espoused by these politicians towards our plight, it will never perfect.

The politician and their families are usually the beneficiaries of our long hours in queues in this furnace of a sun, but yet it is essentially for the system to survive to ensure our continuity.
“Democracy must be something more than two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner” I agree with James Bovard. But in our frustration or anger, let’s cast the ballots and head home peacefully. No politician deserves your arm, leg or life, and none is worth taking a bullet or a machete wound for.

There are some whose minds are already made up to into the bushes, dream bad dreams and come and destabilize the environment. Let the Police deal with them, and if they stand idle, please don’t be a hero.
What I say may sound like an admonishing of cowardice, but I strongly believe no politician is worth dying for.

MAY GOD BE WITH US AND PROTECT US ALL, AND MAY HIS PEACE REIGN ON THIS NATION.
GOD’S SPEED.
