Suspected of Thinking

RhodoTip5_1713
If a woman has sex with five men in an evening for money she’s a prostitute. It’s illegal and she’s committing a crime. If a woman has sex with five men in front of a camera, it’s pornography, it’s legal and she’s a porn star.

If someone takes a bribe to do something, it’s illegal and that person is a criminal. If a politician accepts lobby money to do something, it’s legal, The person taking the money is a representative of democracy.

If someone steals a little money and get caughts, it’s a crime. That person goes to prison. If a bank steals lots of money and goes broke gambling with it, it’s a mistake and a tragedy. The people’s money is given to the bank through taxes so that the directors don’t have to lose their bonuses.

If someone kills someone they go to jail for a long time or are killed themselves. If someone orders the death of thousands of innocent people, it’s part of the struggle to protect us and the person responsible is treated with honor and respect.

I could go on, but why bother. You know all this, don’t you? Whatever the powerful do is OK. Whatever we do is suspect. That’s why they’re watching us. And listening to us. And monitering our habits. And filling us with entertainment and disinformation. Who knows, we may start thinking?

    Had same queries and found same answers; thank you for daring to ‘speak truth to power.’

      Thank you, but I’m not speaking to power. I try to speak to the victims and enemies of power. Speaking to power is like talking to a wolf about vegetarianism.

    Gracious goodness, are you reading my mind; again? Have had similar queries; and, via research, found same answers. Up and at ’em, blog-mate; but ‘the questioned’ in power cannot and never will tell us the truth.
