Observing the fields

2017/03/20

An interesting observation of America has been hiding away for a while. But, the contrast has become more noticeable to more people, of lately. That being said;  The big difference some people just can’t seem to flesh-out is in their heads. It is the fact that career politicians of all flavors and denominations, love their ass-kissers and yes men, women, or whatever. In fact, they are nourished by the sycophantic drool of these fools.

However, enter Donald Trump, now President. No, he isn’t a “career” politician. But he did build a business empire by being able to sense, and see through the bullshit most in Washington, D.C.  and across the country consume and wallow in on a moment-to-moment basis. Now he is building his cabinet like he built his businesses, not of yes ‘persons,’ but of independent, freedom-minded, critical thinkers, rather than loser group thinkers and groveling suck-ups.

Certainly, elitist political patricians have been around for ages, yet many have been crucified upon their crosses of bureaucracy and misperceived sense of entitlement, mainly by plebeians which put them in power to start with. Then again, there are still those places closely resembling Animal Farm.


An Familiar Analogy

Character Analysis Old Major

A wise and persuasive pig, old Major inspires the rebellion with his rhetorical skill and ability to get the other animals to share his indignation. When he announces that he wishes to share the contents of his strange dream with his companions, all the animals comply, demonstrating the great respect they have for such an important (that is, “major”) figure. His speech about the tyranny of man is notable for its methodical enumeration of man’s wrongs against the animals. Listing all of man’s crimes, old Major rouses the other animals into planning the rebellion. His leading them in singing “Beasts of England” is another demonstration of his rhetorical skills, for after he teaches the animals the song about a world untainted by human hands, the animals sing it five times in succession.

The flaw in old Major’s thinking is that he places total blame on man for all the animals’ ills. According to him, once they “Remove Man from the scene,” then “the root cause of hunger and overwork” will be abolished forever. Clearly, old Major believes that Man is capable only of doing harm and that animals are capable only of doing good. Such one-dimensional thinking that ignores the desire for power inherent in all living things can only result in its being disproved. Also ironic is old Major’s admonition to the animals: “Remember also that in fighting against Man, we must not come to resemble him.” This warning is ignored by Napoleon and the other pigs, who, by the novel’s end, completely resemble their human masters. —CliffsNotes, Character Analysis Old Major Animal Farm, George Orwell (1945)


Beware the Pigs in Charge of The Revolution!

“Old Major, the leader says, with “the man” gone, the animals would enjoy the abundance the land provides and build a new society based on equality. He says that the farmer has no concern for the animals—that he uses them until they are no longer productive. He butchers many young ones and euthanizes them all when they get old. […]

The Moral

“Do not give that which is holy to dogs, and cast not your pearls before the swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn around and tear you in pieces […]  Matthew 7:6  

“You know, you can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig.”  — aka Barack Hussein Obama, (2008)


Not to forget, there are approximately 63.5 million (and growing) that pay no income tax and likely voted for the same Marxist/Socialist Democrats who persist in exploiting them.

“Life will go on at Manor Farm as it has always gone on—that is, badly.”

“There are many here among us who feel that life is but a joke
But you and I, we’ve been through that, and this is not our fate
So let us not talk falsely now, the hour is getting late”
~All Along The Watchtower, Bob Dylan
