The recent DNC lackluster phone conference illustrated our current political situation of mammoth inundation without adequate counterweights to get us out from under. Neither Bernie’s rhetoric nor Hillary’s super preparedness sufficiently appealed to the Electoral College.
People’s promiscuous behaviors erring on healthfulness ,tact, reason, and labeled left-wing Democrats, (weed smoking, ear pierced, tattooed coots) supposedly reflect “diversity” neither wishing to join the GOP nor identifying myself with the current trends, I see patterns of overpopulation (preoccupied with sex), careless treatment of our environment (littered road sides, overgrazing public lands, off shore drilling, overuse of material resources, deteriorating communication skills (poor grammar , profanity, overeating (hazardous toward healthful life). lacking inner meaning expressed by the seven deadly sins of envy, gluttony, greed, lust, pride, sloth and wrath.
Confusing politics with culture (humanities highest achievements) as identical has proven calamitous. Obama’s intellect soared above his neglected cultural concept-multiracial opera singers, conductors, instrumental soloists (readily evidenced much of the Classical Arte Showcase channel) perpetuate the finest of Western Civilization not to be ignored in pursuits of trends.
Great art is not show business. Progressive messages involve thinking voters responsible for their
actions in nutrition (health), spirituality, refraining from capitalistic goals, relying on their own hand’s and mind’s work instead.
Democracy is meant to be self-governing, a grave responsibility, alas, shunned by far too many to truly realize it works.
