Alright, Umagaman …
"You are not the first and will not be the last (foreigner) ….”|
I do often disagree with my parents and friends, whom I love, but I don’t change them; I accept them for what they are and respect that they are different from me.
On your point a., we have seen how unreliable people’s choices can be. No doubt, it would be great to feel that you have chosen or are able to choose, but it makes no difference unless you have real understanding over happenings around you and that comes with knowledge and education.
We have seen the sad state of America, for example. Many do not know what is going on outside their own comfort zone. Their government, with all intents and purposes, were only too pleased to brainwash them. In a situation like this, what does it matter that you have free election – when you choose what they (the politicians) want you to choose. I read an article some time back on ‘Mind Control’ in America where the writer, a parent, expressed disgust at what children were taught in American schools and the way they were brainwashed from young to be patriotic.
As for your theory in point a., it is a lop-sided western thinking steeped wiith mistrust, quite understandably. If I place a fan in my room, does it cease to exist simply because the door is shut? Some things which you see may, in fact, not exist at all and vice versa.
On your theory b., that appears to me to be the thinking behind the US government. Have you seen their election rallies? Or, the election rallies in any democratic country? Like miracles, promises and perks start popping up and the common folks remembered.
