A politician doesn’t want your VOTE they want your HOPE.
Politicians aren’t looking for individual people, they are seeking the masses.
Religion already has millions on the ground ready to carry out any agenda. It also has anti-religious groups by the millions on the other side, and there’s the rub, with two sides scooping up the majority of the people (every election cycle) nothing is left to break us free.
Oh, and those two sides live in the same neighborhoods, travel in the same circles, go to the same elite schools and have the same size bank accounts.
Both sides taking advantage of a blind spot in culture, which is the illusion that your side is in the right. The illusion that you have a just cause.
They rely on the fact that human life is short. So, each generation believes it’s fighting the good fight, but in fact, all generations are fighting the same fight that past generations have fought before.
The few control the many with less effort than is needed to control cattle.
We either learn to compromise on every last hard topic or resign ourselves to an endless battle with no hope of victory.
