I am perplexed as to my own bifurcated attitude. On the one hand I celebrate “Run Bernie Run!” and on the other I sigh wearily, knowing that his campaign, in the larger picture — and probably within a year — will be viewed as just a ruse that drove puppet Hillary to the left (temporarily) in this faux game of “opposite” parties and meanwhile, same ol’, same ol’, as what’s left of the fake fiat money gets funneled all the way to the top.
Get this! Truly let this one factoid settle down into your gut. Guaranteed to make you double over in pain, and then, maybe, just maybe, rise up in fury, join hands, and revolt! In the year 2014:
Chris Hedges is calling for revolution:
Meanwhile, I’m not surprised that Hillary hobnobs with the rich, hell — IS rich. Here’s her natal chart —
— with its extraordinary tension between royal, generous, entitled Leo and secretive, power-hungry, game-playing Scorpio.
And, BTW, her Moon is in Pisces. She does listen, and she is empathic.
And, BTW, her Jupiter is in the very first degree of Sagittarius. She is a big picture thinker.
But both Moon and Jupiter are subsumed into that overwhelming Leo/Scorpio dynamic which involves Mars/Saturn/Pluto in Leo square Venus/Mercury/Ascendant in Scorpio. So that she feels utterly comfortable in the halls of power, revels in her queenly role, and most likely, has a Kissingerian “real politik” attitude, no matter what her campaign promises which will most likely shift like the wind, given her Piscean sensitivity to prevailing currents.
Unfortunately, I don’t know Bernie’s chart. But who cares? He doesn’t have a chance in hell, right? The game is rigged!
Even so, that first, natural, and ever-naive, innocent part of me can’t help but get excited! At last, a real, passionate, messy-white-haired elder stands up, somebody who doesn’t really give a hang about the politics, just tells it like it is for him. From the New York Post:
In his first interview on ABC’s “This Week” since declaring his candidacy, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) said the US should operate more like the Scandinavian countries of Denmark, Norway and Sweden.
“I can hear the Republican attack ad right now: ‘He wants America to look more like Scandinavia,’” countered ABC host George Stephanopoulos.
But Sanders said that’s exactly what he wants.
“That’s right. That’s right. And what’s wrong with that?” Sanders said.
Yep! I’m going to encourage both these fractious minds of mine, let them play out, not to cancel each other, but to fertilize each other.
