How Far Until We Say ‘No’?

Every now and again i choose to quote someone who we do not remember for their greatness.

“What luck for rulers that men do not think.”
Adolf Hitler (1889-1945)

How true this is! Look at today, it still happens all the time. In the UK, we actively accept that politicians lie, and do nothing about it.
We accept that the people who we position to make our lives better, actively abuse that power for their own good. Unfortunately, Hitler managed to blind people more than many other leaders have done, and had far greater penalties for those he disliked, however, the crimes caused by today’s leaders are not little white lies – far from it!

Films like ‘V for Vendetta’ show how easily something like this could happen, and how little time thinking about what’s really going on behind the closed doors. I’m no conspiracy theorist but i do believe that we all take a little too much for granted. Billions of pounds spent on armies and billions of people in poverty. For me, the sums just don’t add up.

  1. Well if you http://www.votethorp.com and stop voting for the same old politicians then you won’t have to put up with that anymore 🙂

    If you want to see the final scene of V for Vendetta in real life (in a metaphorical not a literal way) then just vote for my campaign on 3 May 2007…

  2. Now now Duncan…that’s blatant advertising on my site and i usually wouldn’t condone that type of behaviour! However i’ll let it slide this time! lol
