“Mother Should I Trust The Government”? Pink Floyd

What happened to us? Not just in America, but the world over. Why do we trust the government today, or when “our” candidate gets in?

What does it take to actually and truly earn your trust and allegiance?

What happened to music? What happened to us?

  1. For me, trust is something that a stranger never gets. And if I never interacted with a person (ex.: politician), I cannot give them my trust. It’s an intimate thing. If I don’t trust them in the first place, I cannot lose that trust in them.
    What I feel is hope fueled by faith. I am well aware that a person on TV cannot live up to 100% of my expectations. We all have different expectations. There is no way anyone can satisfy all of us. What I also keep in mind is that we (regular people) don’t know everything that happens behind closed doors. In fact, we know very little. It’s easy for us to judge, and make false accusations. Sometimes, you have to look at the bigger picture to see that the image is still intact.

      Very true Goldie. Perhaps we are just burnt out and exhausted. Maybe, like you said it is hope fueled by faith. Since we are all maxed out on credit. Living on the razors edge of total financial collapse.

      So we cannot be who we are, we can no longer “flex” against the man. Instead, we now look to the government and “our” preferred candidate to save us, if anything, just slight relief.

      Yet, we willfully forget that it is the government that dictates interest rates, in an attempt to motivate the market. They write the laws.

      And all we do is finance our phones. We are stuck in a quagmire that we, of our own volition happily jump into.

      We are the fools.

      1. It freaks me out how so many people question nothing. Don’t say a thing. It starts with little things. People preaching something totally false, and others not correcting them. Buses being late, and no one complains, etc. “Don’t sweat the small things” you say. I agree. Pick your battles. But it leads to complacency on a much greater scale like you say.

          Exactly Goldie, it’s a slow creep, one small step at a time. Small changes are easier adapted to and hardly noticed.

  2. I “trust” that I will cut people in general a wide path. Our current situation has made a lot of folks nuts.

    I will never trust a gubment. I have worked inside of three. Nasty places…

  3. It’s like we don’t learn. Though, here in Australia we get the odd one that is quite good – like Cory Bernardi, Pauline Hanson, George Christensen, and Scott Morrison seems to be doing a good job. But generally, they are all full of sh*t and I’m fed up with most of them. For a politician to gain my trust – they have to genuinely trying to help the population and doing a d*mn good job.

          If I do not hold the same power over them that they do me, then it is futile to place my trust in them.
