Daniel Rosenberg And American Policy Constructs
Iʼm Daniel Rosenberg. I’ve been told I’m a reasonably intelligent person. I donʼt follow politics much because I canʼt. Itʼs horrible.
We live in a democracy and the people are policy constructs whom shape the country. In actuality, we donʼt because we can’t.
An extremely small percentage of the country are truly wealthy while a majority of us are middle class or poor. We are the world’s leader in incarceration. 1 in 100 people in this country are currently in prison. Women make less than men for the same exact jobs. You can buy an assault riffle in thirty states without identification. Systemic oppression on the basis of race is obvious to anyone who has two eyes.
We live in a country where cash is king. Money is power. By now this is old news, but Iʼm going to reiterate: Donald Trump is legitimately running for president in our country. Let that sink in. Two families have dominated the White House since Iʼve been alive. How can that be? First we had Bush, then Clinton. Then Bush. And now two of the top candidates for next years election are… Bush and Clinton 2.0. Imagine, if Hillary is elected and ends up serving two terms, two families will have run the White House for twenty eight of thirty six years.
Clearly we have little ability and are not the policy constructs that shape our country. If we were, none of these realities would be true. And thatʼs a scary thought living in a dangerous and critical moment in history. The threat of terror is strong and many hate the United States around the world. Itʼs crazy to think of so many strangers out there that hate us. Of those that want to reek havoc on the United States and our people. I wish I could tell them that the picture that they have of us isnʼt true. That they may hate us from afar but if we got to hang out together you would like us and we would like you too. We donʼt want to drop any bombs, exploit any countries, or kill anyone. All of that is done by a small group of people, not the masses and we have no control over them. We call these people: Our government.
