being raped by Elitism (and by the Elitists to be)
To those who are gravely offended, sorry, but this shows the perspective of an Elitist who ought to rape "Democracy" most of the time for their benefit. Simply thinking that acting as guides yet the end isn't on the people but to themselves who, basing much on the use of words to curry people with and trying to control somebody else's corrupts the very essence of Democracy. Obviously, countries like America took pride in that Democracy, but as we dig deeper we sought that Democracy meant material things to accumulate using a word of mouth and an eye to see than of freedoms responsibly cherished with; same as other countries whose demos kratia is not really a demos kratia at all.
And since there are those who still kept on preaching may as well think that they are worse than what they described as parasites for they themselves as parasites trying to justify as their will to do so-that made Ferdinand Marcos think, in pursuit of solidifying his rule coined verses from Gunnar Myrdal and other writers in his book. Once, this person read a book that coined Myrdal's words, that as if he tend to put the Philippines under martial rule and called it as Revolution and setting forth Development to end the reign of Oligarchs and the like, but the change advance further despite the facades being built? How come there are strikes during that time? This person even think that one of his assumptions mirror today's events, that would say that the "Capitalist-Conservative" Nightmare of the rich being impoverished and be brought to the level of the poor is likely for most of these rich are quite experiencing debts or its fellow rich scrambling more to the extent of swallowing its fellow one and justified as its freedom and obligation, both as obligation as earners who earn a lot, calling it as hard earned and with a right to monopolize everything to the extent of privatizing an entire society as what Paulo Alcazaren thinks of.
This person would even think and say that this writeup is not against Freedom and Democracy, but like the two, both idea and word itself became bastardised and raped by those ought to justify interest of a particular class like those who afford in it, after all it all reminds of the Royalists in France whose idea speaks of:
"Government on High, by a marked noble elite. And insisted vote censitaire: a form of democracy limited to taxpayers...preserving aristocracy and promoting absolutism..."
These words mirror those who, like the ones from the past, also consistently parroting the same unequal idea. And if insisted of having Democracy and Freedom reduced to taxpayers, or rather say those who afford to pay, how about those who really worked hard yet less pay? Will they also pay bigger taxes to afford freedoms and enjoy the privileges of a Democratic society? The way similar those who afford to buy from the malls owned by Henry Sy and Jaime Zobel de Ayala?
This reminds of one part from the song Internationale by Pottier, and it said:
The society oppresses and its law cheats,
The Taxes bleed the unfortunate;
No duty is imposed on the rich,
“Equal rights” is a hollow phrase.
Enough languishing in custody;
Equality needs other laws:
And it says “no rights without obligations”,
And so “no obligations without rights!”
After all, it is not merely an imagination but a reality trying to be covered by an illusion such those of "Rights" as Elitists insisted upon and trying to act like those of the have not. The song Internationale even speaks of the dubious reality that Freedom is to those who afford in it while Obligation be imposed on the have not, obviously, Freedom and Democracy is reduced into an illusion vented by vested interests to those wanting to get it yet those who benefited are those who afford to enjoy that priviledges while those who really work hard to earn simply endure getting dictated with a 'justified' unfair share; obviously, this person think that one reason those who afford would say that "You must be thankful you have a job so stop complaining and be contented on what we gave you" that in fact, an alibi to justify the cause of hoarding more whilst the other be compelled to rage, especially in midst of the growing prices of commodities, low value of currency, and low salaries and unfair wages. Yes, that shows how the laborer had to deal with "Obligations" to have "Rights" such those of the "Obligation" of toil and pay to have the "Right" of resting while the Elitist ought to have "Rights" before "Obligations" especially the right for satisfaction though profiteering and an obligation through paying taxes.
So again, Freedom? Freedom for whom?
As calls for massive privatization of the society and control by those who dare to control in it in all spheres of life (like Elites, Oligarchs, and its cohorts), reducing public spending in favor of increasing payments, all forms of entirely "Purist" Capitalism as liberative and Democratic made its very own idea, with the alibi of this and that as "Human Nature" are rather described as foolishness as it rapes Democracy and Freedom many times for their very own convenience. Freedom for whom? As what others think of insisting a privatized society under a privileged Elite and its hired thugs, moochers fulfilling obligations of maintaining their privileges and exploiting more in pursuit of their Freedoms especially against those who really forge, till to earn for basic things such as food, clothing and shelter. It would be good if they ought to legalize Marijuana for it is also a right to smoke and benefited from it; but will they do so? It would be a mixed reaction amongst those people especially those who favor contentment on unjust foreign trade rather than domestic manufacturing by simply against the production of that said plant. (seems that the writeup is becoming irrelevant)
Well, worthy of remembering Nietzsche saying that Women, Socialism, Equality, Democracy belong in an inferior world, that Morality belongs to the few and not for everyone. For sure Freedom includes in that few for, using their perspective, it is inherent right to exploit for their self-gratification as part of human nature.
"The hideous forms of exploitation in the factories, coupled with the intolerable police regime of the tsarist henchmen -- a circumstance which transformed every important strike of the workers into an imposing political action and steeled the working class as a force that was revolutionary to the end."
And as expected, Banks, Oligarchs, Elites, its hired thugs, as venting rage around the world and preaching their near-meaningless doctrine in midst of the crisis, tend to insist from time to time justifying their exploitation by calling it as their inherent right without hindrance like taxes and regulations. And this time, as the crisis worsens, who's to blame? The individuals who worked hard for cash or those who accumulated more from someone else's sweat? Debts are rising and thus directly affects the third world such as the Philippines whose system is as antiquated and backward with a small fraction chanting for foreign exploitation as a panacea for the crisis, but does it mean will freeze debts? Inculcate Development like the buildings of Makati? The masses remained destitute despite indirectly paying their obligations yet having less paid and perhaps no benefit at all to the extent of ending up whether as unemployed or as lumpen, so what do we expect from those who "Rape" the idea that is called "Democracy?" It turned out to be a Polyarchy as what everyone sees of it, then this time with people chanting "Free trade!" "Open markets!" "Foreign acquisition of assets!" and other kinds of bullshit hurling against the poor who called for Land Reform and Domestic-based industrialization for the third world Philippines.
However, to those who think about why there's Marijuana in this writeup, sorry this person is not a drug user.
