Dominance Games / Politics
So the dust will be cleared and the trumpets will blare and the nominees will battle it out and office holders will hunker down and do their dirty and they will save the world by their passion, determination, wisdom and pride and honor.
The middle will hold and smile and laugh and pretend not to disappear. The wings will foam and foment and pretend not to seek unlimited control of all thoughts, all things, all songs, all days, all deaths, all moral high grounds and all ways to sneer and look down one’s nose.
The power vacuums will rise. The systemic vulnerabilities will seep puss like a canker sore and there will be no place and no means for a broad based sharing of wealth and power. The mechanisms of order and survival will kick in as they must as mobility is lost, learning is killed, access to governance is false and controls are put upon economic well being and decent into the lives of wage slave or bum, supplicant or lost soul, debt ridden, broken loner and those who ask what the hell is the point of it all will be a morbid trip.
Common purpose will come as an illusion, the only common purpose being the effort to keep the barbarians at bey. The social contract will be broken as it is one that implies a unified whole of a county, one with shared interests and goals. Trust will disappear and there will be no reason for cohesion save defense of order, the allowance of misery, the pride of hate.
The bonds of a common destiny will be a cynics derision. Come the new year.
