Then, Why Are They Allowed To Vote?
If You Can't Improve Your Life, You Shouldn't Determine The Course Of A Country
These weak individuals respond violently when reminded they are responsible for their lives and the consequences of their actions. People will whine about systemic oppression, disadvantages, and other excuses to externalize blame as much as possible.
But if someone can’t pay their loans, choose better mates, control their whims, or plan for their futures, why should they be allowed to vote?
To vote is to show an ability to discern which candidates will provide the best solutions to complex social and moral issues. But if you can’t control your own life, what wisdom do you have to justify controlling others?
If someone cannot pay off their loans, then why should they be allowed to vote for candidates who decide the national debt? If a person is incapable of improving their life, how could they have the wisdom to decide the fate of a country?
Of course, the purpose of universal suffrage is to benefit the ruling classes. Most people are ignorant, and if they are allowed to have a say in the lives of others, these weak individuals will naturally choose the easy but worst path.
So what’s the solution? Seek your independence. As with most things, I’m providing common sense arguments when you are in a debate with coworkers or family members. But make no mistake: nothing will improve. Obsessing over this reality or refining your debate skills does not move the needle toward virtue.
The average person does not want to be free. The systems of voting and human ownership are too powerful to dislodge. People will vote for their destruction and will do whatever they can to drag you along.
Random Apps I’ve Used Recently
EveryDollar - EveryDollar is a brilliant app from Dave Ramsey to help track your spending. I’ve gone with the pro version, which automatically pulls my spending habits directly from my bank account. By keeping track of my budget, I can see where my money is going and set expectations for the next month.
Picture This - I’m trying to learn to farm. I enjoy growing food that I can give o my family and friends. I’m still very much an amateur, but through apps like Picture This, I can learn what a weed is, what a plant is, and how to take care of the vegetables and herbs I’m trying to grow.
Timer+ - Most phones come with timers, but there is usually just one. I like to track my time for multiple projects and activities. With this app, I can set five timers to make sure I’m not working too much or cleaning too long. This app is great for time management.
OneLook - When writing, I need to diversify my word selection. I don’t want to sound simple or basic. With OneLook, I gain access to a long list of word synonyms that I can swap out.
Momma’s Old School Burgers
You control yourself. The world will change constantly, but you can weather the storm.
To weather the storm, you must be inspired. Fictional works can show you how to overcome your vices to pursue what is meaningful.
My goal with Momma’s Old School Burgers is to tell an inspirational story about a diner in purgatory. The workers and visitors to this diner are flawed, living their undead lives with regrets and traumas.
But through the story, they learn how to make amends and overcome the pain they have experienced and caused.
