2014 and the Remission of Mundi blog.ucadia.com/2014/01/2014-and-remission-of-mundi.html What kind of madness believes people who are living are dead? What kind of insanity causes people living in the richest country of the world to vote to cut the benefits of the poor so that they starve to death and then hide from public view how many thousands of people are dying from exposure and starvation? What kind of utter insanity and bizarre stupidity creates a system where the government makes more money locking up its citizens under fake prison bonds through privatized prisons than find people useful jobs and education? It is not enough to say that these things happen because politicians have stopped caring, or have become so totally stupid and insane that they really have no idea. I happened to work in Canberra, the Capital City of Australia in politics for six years and interacted with politicians first hand during this period. So I can say from my own personal experience that politicians are by and large less intelligent and less aware than your average merchant banker, or top lawyer or real estate agent or military industrial or pharmaceutical business mogul. But they are rarely suicidal or completely disconnected from their constituents that keep them in the power to which they have become accustomed.
