Happiness

“Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence.”

                                                                                                                                        - Aristotle

You may or may not agree with Aristotle’s definition of happiness, but for argument’s sake, let’s use it for this article.

I believe that many of us are upset with American politics and national policies and I wish to address the angst that so many of us think, when we see injustices occurring all the time in our nation. Much of it does not make sense, nor does it make us happy.

This is what I believe:

I contend that the reality of American politics is based upon the fact that our political system has evolved over the years into an oligarchy (the rule by a few).

It appears that there are only about a dozen or so Multi-Billionaires, who own all of the American media conglomerates. These Multi-Billionaires control what Americans think, how they are entertained, plus they control their other business interests.  With their finances, they control the Republican and Democrat politicians in Congress, which makes our form of government in reality, an oligarchy, an oligarchy of the very wealthy.

These Multi-Billionaires have an undeclared goal that is not written, but it is basically to create America into the Chinese model, in which one political party controls public policies and that only a few Multi- Billionaires will control the production and distribution of the goods and services of our nation.

It is easy to find the names of these individuals, simply by searching on the Internet, e.g., “Who owns American media conglomerates?”

If an average American feels compelled to run for political office, it is best that they run in a non-partisan, local contest. If they decide to run in partisan politics, they need to get the blessings of local and state political party leaders, who are controlled by special money interests.  A candidate essentially has to sell their soul to the Devil, because they would be representing the special money interests and not the interests of, “We, the People.”

The Republican and Democrat politicians could make sweeping changes to stop special interests from controlling our American politics, but they will not take that action. They have their own interest to stay in their position of political power and will continue to represent the very wealthy.

The only action that an individual American can take concerning politics is to choose the political party and the candidate, who best represents their thinking.  The system is far from being perfect, but I do not see any changes in the foreseeable future.

In order for you to be happy, I suggest that you go about your life and do the things that do make you happy and once in a while, when it is time to vote, go take that action, even though at times you will have to hold your nose.

The American political system simply will not change

This article is just a recipe for your own personal happiness.

Go take a hike; watch a fun movie.

Sincerely,

John Adams
