No, the blog title has nothing to do with anything that I am going to be writing about. I just wanted to write ‘The Ducks of Wrath’ for some inexplicable reason.
Although, now that I think about it, having an army of ducks which wandered the world dispensing their wrathful judgments upon those who have wronged the Ducks sounds kind of neat. They would wander up and down the streets of your city, and if you knew you had done nothing wrong you could walk in their presence without fear. The Ducks would simply nod at you as you went on your way. But if you had harmed another, or stolen, or just been a generally bad person no amount of running could save you. You couldn’t drive fast enough away, eventually you must stop for gas, or food, or sleep. They need no such trifles. And even if you managed to get a plane to a new country they would follow you. They know where you are, always, and will never stop hunting you.
Moving on, I want to know why so many people insist on being so very ignorant when it comes to blatantly obvious things. Why do so many people assume, guess, hope(?), that the government is actively working against them? I’m not saying it is impossible, it certainly is, I’m just trying to figure out what the government has to gain from it. The first answer would probably be power, which I can agree with to an extent, except for the fact that in order for that to work someone would have to control enough of the Government (Judicial, Legislative, and Executive) in order to actually gain working control of the government. You would have to control, or have sway of, 2/3 of the entire government in order to really have control of it. And even then, it is entirely possible to remove the people who are in office. This is of course assuming that people even bother with the democratic process.
Really, that’s my point. If someone truly just wanted to take over the government, and the government was all out to get us, they’d just say “To hell with this election shit!” and setup a dictatorship or something. Even if every politician wanted to rule to government it would never happen because they would all be fighting each other.
Stop hating government, prease.
