Incrementalism

January 30, 2016

Do as you’re told. We’re not to expect more. That’s what we have been told for decades. While at the same time, corporations and the oligarchy have been rapacious in their appetite for more. More wealth. More power. More everything.

Over the last four decades, the amount of wealth amassed by the top 1% has tripled.

And for the rest of us? Little to nothing.

You see we are being told by our betters that we shouldn’t ask for too much, and be happy with what we have. Hillary Clinton said yesterday in a speech that “People who have health emergencies can’t wait for us to have a theoretical debate about some better idea that will never, ever come to pass.”

So Single Payer health insurance is off the table. A system that is implemented in most of advanced countries of the world is too difficult for the United States to implement.

You see we can’t ask for too much, we have to be happy with what we have. We have to understand that we don’t know better. That the people in control know what’s good for us. That we just need to be patient and they will take care of us.

Be happy with incremental changes. Don’t reach too high. Don’t hope too much. We’ll tell you what you need. We’ll tell you what you deserve.

And yet the populace accepts this. They eat it up every day.

We have a chance to change the system. How much remains to be seen. But voting for incremental change will not change anything. Now or tomorrow.
