Should we let Hillary get away with her political crimes?
#1
Explanation: There is an axiom in journalism that goes along the lines of "Any headline that ends in a question mark can be answered by the word no."!!!

Betteridge's law of headlines

Personal Disclosure: And it is just that simple ok! minusculebeercheers

There is as much chance of Hillary been charge with anything as there is the leaders of the EU been charged with the rape and destruction of European cultures.
The question i want answered is "Who are the evil forces most of the world leaders seem to be serving, and how is this evil stopping people from taking back control."
Most of the people know what needs to be changed, what needs to be done, but its as if they are blind to the tools they need to change things. There is more going on that we understand, but there is change in the air, and evil can feel it and is fighting hard.
One thing I want to point out is that there is evil and good in this world and it has nothing to do with religion or God.

As Omega indicates, the media have gone a long way to present the public with an idea that current political leaders
should be held accountable in the same 'vigilante'-attitude that all medias have pushed in recent years.

News/infotainment outlets asks the reader/viewer 'carved' questions that are enticing and based on a narrative that
favours their own reality. But the basic mechanics of how political decisions are made remain unexplained.

Politics is a swamp and due to the dumbing-down that's been prevalent -certainly in Europe, decisions are made in
the governments that on the surface -and when a reader/viewer is aware of the full facts, make sense when laid
against party lines, pressure from business and civic areas.
Emotions have no place in politics, regardless of the fallout from a decision.

But to others who these judgements effect negatively, the same medias poke with a stick to prompt a response
that can be massaged into a ratings-benefiting discussion. It's dishonest for the fourth-estate to abuse their
position where the public's trust in Journalism is vital not only because they're the conduit between the masses
and the power-seats, they're supposed to be the 'Paul Revere' for all of us.

However, the hopefully-rational point of view that I've posted here doesn't stop me from agreeing with Wallfire
in his proposal that Good and Evil is prominent in the world today.

These simple moral concepts can be easily fragmented when looking at individual declarations within politics.
If the prize is power over others, materialistic wealth or control of a personal doctrine, the manner of obtaining
these goals will always be initially seen by the public as 'bad' under an assumed heading.

But our tribal instincts insist that there should always be leaders and always be followers. That in itself, cannot
be weighed on the scales of Good And Evil. But ironically, with the assistance or hindrance of medias, the journey
to changing oneself, a town, a country or the world, can be.

At the moment, I'm unsure whether this fundamental view of the Good and Evil abstraction is alive and well
-and REAL in the world or whether it's being generated by the news medias based on their perception of the
viewer/reader being simple-minded!

Journalists are in a situation where realities don't sell Journalistic wares. Headlines and the top paragraph have
to be lures in order to maintain the wants of their capitalistic superiors. I would like to think they haven't realised
that this behavior is what is causing their slow downfall, but if their bosses are answerable to other unknown
areas, Reporters may be selling out the concept of Good and Evil for the sake of simple accepting the King's
shilling.
.............................

Regarding Wallfire's comment of Hillary and others not being held accountable for the accusations laid against
them, I'm in agreement to. It would set a precedent where those who believed they were in control, could have
it taken away from them.

In itself, that harks towards the belief of judging via good or evil of political conduct in a more intense form than
the voting that's with us now. But once inside the circle of politics, any gratitude for being elected by those who've
place their trust in an official, doesn't seem to be displayed.

Everyday, you can see well-dressed politicians speak on a level of unctuous, pompous, self-serving drivel that work
for sound-bites and headlines, but relates nothing informative or erudite to those they're REALLY supposed to serve.

Wiser heads than myself know that if we go down the road of holding everyone in the political world to account -in
the manner of the Good/Evil concepts, the decisions and manner of punishment during the French Revolution comes
to mind and I'm certain political-players all across the world have worked to make sure the masses never even
ponder that idea again!

The paradigm is that only at the voting booth can one make a difference in their own political environs, but with
the rumours in the last US election, maybe even that belief has been undermined.

My personal view is that we need stronger leaders who are honourable enough to ignore the trappings that come
with the post. But the idea of bettering others before oneself is often seen as naive in today's cynical world and I
think we've become weary of the grey, derisive management of our own countries.

Whether it's an 'age-thing' and we look to an arcane solution to rid ourselves with this mental-perception of
'bad' people in politics or whether it's just a base-line we've reached where a true realisation abides, I personally
don't know.

Is it the ghost of a 'semi-religious, socially-mutual' supposition that's come back to haunt us from simpler days or
is it simply politics is being deliberately presented as buffoonery by a ratings-hungry media that has brought us to
propose that right-and-wrong, good-and-evil are the ways to judge the convoluted circus we call politics?

Forgive me Omega, for ending my post with a question!!!
