The False Left/Right Paradigm - Mind Control in American Politics (RECAP)

Having been immersed in the left/right facade their entire lives, many have begun to see the world and those around them through that prism. Either someone is on the same "side" as they are, or they are the enemy. There is no room for nuance, no subtle distinctions to be made, no room for alliance or cooperation on matters of great import. Perhaps most devastatingly, there is now little room for any analysis of the powers behind the political throne, the oligarchical financial interests that could care less whether this or that President has a "D" or an "R" next to their name, whether a Prime Minister is "Labour" or "Conservative," whether an MEP identifies with the "left" or the "right." Deprived of this understanding of the real nature of political power, the public is truly powerless to identify the real problem at the root of today's political crisis, let alone even begin to address it.

A lot of recent posts on FB made me think about the necessity of voting for people who will truly go after the crooked system, rather than lie and say stuff about 'hope and change' (BO) or say they are non-interventionist (GB) while being funded by big money pro-war lobbyists.

Anyone that is hated by the established (corporate) press and hated by other political lackeys could be someone to pick. However, skeletons inside closets is a real problem for any candidate - who can then be blackmailed.

The real issues are about high level corruption, which left/right infighting often obfuscates. It does not matter what side has committed a crime, or covered up crime, they must face punishment (or the same bad things will keep occurring).

Crimes include non-prosecution for banking securities fraud and mortgage fraud, illegal overt wars, proxy wars, torture, extra-judicial assassination etc. Those that gloss over these issues are part of the problem.
