    It’s not Mr. Underpants On Fire that troubles me, it’s no jobs and a failing climate.

    It happens so frequently now that some of the impact is dulled. Its still wrong, it still shouldn’t happen, but its becoming more and more apparent that Congress thinks they’re entitled to do this.

    People know something is wrong, but our elected representatives refuse to acknowledge what’s going on. Its up to us to put the pressure on.

    Where are the Philosopher Kings or can a person improve his own life better then an earthly King?

    @DrCanuck
    But how can a Redneck marginalize a Philosopher King if such a King is better able to solve the issues of the day. Truth is the idea of a Philosopher King is primitive.

    Politicians are not philosophers, truth is their enemy.

    All philosophy, science & religion starts with the study of the great What It Is. What actually is, is truth. Politics is the art of convincing people that your opponent’s philosophy is faulty & yours can fix something. It has only enough relationship with truth necessary to that end. Politics infected all of the above long ago. Good philosophy, science & religion tries to fight this. What It Is is sometimes less than pleasant. Politics says this is obviously due to faults in my opponent’s philosophy. Detach your philosophy from politics & reattach it to truth. Ask the burning bush, it will yell you What It Is.

    What if the plan by the ultra-rich and theocratic here is to undermine, under fund and destroy our Republic to replace it with a gov’t more to the oligarchs’ liking?

    I want people to be able to take care of themselves or at least the first & second shot at doing so. Where is the politics.

    Politicians are behaving like they’ve been feeding US magic mushrooms, and nobody’s noticing what they’re doing to us. Oh, wait, they may be right.

    Politics and government today is just TOTAL ignorance. The entire concept of government today is so far from real governance that these people think they are governing when in reality they are just pawns of the collective consciousness of the nation running after votes and campaign dollars. Give me your vote and I’ll rule. What nonsense.

    Real power of government is the power within Nature’s government. The “philosopher kings” used to know what that meant, from ancient times there was the solar dynasties that ruled from the power of their being. The foremost example was Raam in the Ramayana.

    People (including those pretenders in “government”) don’t know what real rulership is. It isn’t dictating orders or starting wars or writing laws or deciding this or that for others. Any brute can do that.

    Rulership comes from what one knows and has harnessed from within, having pierced through and cleared the fog of stress to cognize within one’s own awareness the very same dynamism and silence that governs the universe. This is not a philosophical conclusion, it is a state of seeing and being and living the power of life. It’s plugging into reality. It is aligning one’s awareness to the laws of nature within, not opposing it like so many are doing today. The lofty philosophical descriptions are derived from direct experience.

    By becoming fully aligned with natural law within, one spontaneously choses right action and naturally uplifts everyone around one’s environment. That is what such awakening to one’s own inner being bestows, and that is real rulership. One radiates truth, radiates the light of life, and people are naturally drawn to that power of life.

    The true definition of rulership is the ability to do less and accomplish more—thoughts get quickly fulfilled; do nothing and accomplish everything—just by being fully aligned with one’s nature is enough for nature to fulfill your intentions before you even have them. That is life worth living. That is Self rule. That is what we should be developing in the educational system, because it would eventually free future generations from the awful political / social / religious / economic mess that they are being given now.
