In my opinion.. The president(And the two party system in general) is a polarizing scapegoat, a symbol to point your frustrations at whether you fall on the right or left half. Meanwhile, the more accurate description of how power works in our government involves many different interests and many names most people will never know, in addition to secret societies and groups of people who join together for their own power while excluding most others for whatever reasons.
All the while the public image that is put on gives an impression of hokey doke, and just about everything is transparent and people are just incompetent and stupid and wasteful, and it's just human nature as opposed to a fucking gigantic incredible conspiracy that is so megalithic in it's scope it's difficult for the average person to really even begin to try to conceptualize or quantify.
It's difficult for the average person to realize there's pretty much a conspiracy against almost everyone outside of the most rich, powerful, influential and wealthy, it's difficult to see all these people they grew up loving in entertainment whether music, or movies, or video games or whatever and find out that these people are more often than is comfortable part of some secret web that is actually putting out certain messages for other reasons than just artistic or educational... But are which frequently methods of indoctrination and brainwashing and literal hypnotism.
So.. How to break the spell? Good question.. Especially as an average person with not much influence. I don't have an answer. I'm still battling with it. My only answer so far is to talk to others and share information and make art that helps convey information as well.
And it does seem like more and more people are waking up to some of these kinds of things, and it seems like it's only a matter of time given peoples access to technology and the rate at which it is expanding. However. No need in my opinion to.. Just expect someone else to do it. I think we all have something valuable to offer, and I'll try to offer whatever valuable I can think of.. Instead of just expecting others to do it.
Hopefully things get better.. I am optimistic and have hope.. Though.. The world is possibly more fucked up than ever, and it's possibly more grim than ever.. Much of the population seems to be getting stupider despite the improving technology and sometimes it seems like an idiocracy world.. I feel like it could go either way still. I still feel like government(secret societies) could develop enough technology to.. Empower themselves to the point of rendering the rest of us obsolete.
They have the nuclear weapons and satellites and high powered drones and jets and subs and tanks and on and on and even tons of classified stuff we know nothing or very little about.. How could we ever expect to turn the tides? It feels like the Terminator movie or The Matrix sometimes.. Like it seems impossible..
How do we ever get a powerful enough message to those in power who don't want to give up their power and likely won't give it up without a fight? Sigh..
I dunno. This is a question I may ponder my entire life, if we don't extinct ourselves first. Just had a bunch of thoughts again after posting my short film again and I wanted to get that out. Rant over. As usual, if you happened to read that, feel free to chime in if you want.
