The Dead Politician’s Will

The dead politician left this on his will:

To all future Politicians, I leave these words:

Become a politician by lying…

Become a politician by cheating…

Become a politician by making false promises…

But please don’t become a politician using:

Religion, History & Culture

Because politics will survive…

But the other three will be distorted and lose its popular appeal…

 

 

Reading of this “Will” reminds the Simpleton of Dr.A.C.Grayling’s (Western Philosopher and certified by SPIN as an Intellectual) thoughts on Politics:

“Politics and Goverment are very different things. They interact, especially at election time, and almost everyone fails to see the difference – even, sometimes, politicians themselves especially those in opposition, who are able to make promises proportional size to the unliklihood of their ever having to be fulfilled. But most responsible politicians recognise the difference between managing the complexities of a large and populous country, and the political endeavour of persuading voters to continue giving their support.”

Excerpts From Dr.A.C.Grayling’s book “The Reason Of Things”

OK… This probably will sound good to most except the Simpleton… And the problem begins with this:

“But most responsible politicians recognise the difference between managing the complexities of a large and populous country, and the political endeavour of persuading voters to continue giving their support.”

This is true only if the voters are “Thinkers”… But traditionally Voters have always been “Believers”… If that happens, its unfair to ask a responsible politician to play by the rules…

So in this case, the Simpleton is going replace that portion of Dr.A.C.Grayling’s thoughts with Rapper ICE T’s lyrics:

“Don’t Hate The Playa(Player)…Hate The Game…”

From the Album “7TH DEADLY SIN”…

Of course, the intellectuals are going to keep dancing to the tune “Educate the Voters”, but the Simpleton says “May be Uneducating some of the Intellectuals would be a better solution”…

Dr.A.C.Grayling also offered this about the “Media”:

“The public see only part of the external face of goverment. Its ordinary tasks, even those that are done well, rarely find mention in the media, which is hungry for mistakes, problems, lies, evasions, difficulties, conflicts, quarrels, arguments, disasters, miscalculations, personality clashes, and anything else which makes a good story. In consequence the public gets a low impression of politics”

Excerpts From Dr.A.C.Grayling’s book “The Reason Of Things”

Again what the good doctor with a book titled “The Reason Of Things” has to understand is that for decades the Media has been able to survive with the excuse “Don’t Blame The Messenger” and the pop culture rarely blames the media even when they are wrong, so there is no need to be optimistic about this trend changing… But the Doctor saying “even those that are done well, rarely find mention in the media,” is what leads to this illusion called “Patriotism” and false hope that an “Utopian Society” can be created… In any Society, the relationship between Citizens and Goverment is more or less a buisness partnership… If the media keeps reporting only good news then it becomes a propaganda machine… There is absolutely nothing wrong with Media reporting “mistakes, problems, lies, evasions, difficulties, conflicts, quarrels, arguments, disasters, miscalculations, personality clashes,…” as long as they have the facts…
