Democracy can no longer “Represent” the People, because Lives are not equal in Capitalism dominated Political Party system
Let’s not talk about any fanciful conspiracy theories of how cabals of the wealthy are puppeteering political leaders in making policy decisions.
Let’s talk about simple fact of unequal values of lives in Modern America. The reality of Capitalism is that people are valued differently by the system.
Sorry to break to you if this is new to you, but unless you are one of the wealthy elites, your life value is less than the wealthy elites. Insurance companies can actually tell you the worth of your life approximately. This translates to political values.
For example: Jeff Epstein, wealthy financier and convicted sex offender, commits suicide in jail, and jail guards are fired, and FBI start investigating immediately. Months later, jail guards are charged. Some other people, like myself, who might get killed by police on camera? I doubt the system will investigate my death very carefully.
Of course, publicity and media could help my case, but that’s not predictable nor certain. What’s certain is that the System itself doesn’t value my life as equally as Jeff Epstein, wealthy financier and convicted sex offender, even though I have a college degree and have been working and paying taxes since I was 20.
What I am certain of the system is that which almost everyone would agree in America, including those Wealthy Elites, our lives are not equal in politics and influence.
Well of course, I understand that life is not fair.
But here is the problem: if the system is not valuing me as much as someone else, then how is the system “representing” me?
Democracy is supposed to be, where the People elect “representatives” who “represents” EVERYONE in the system. The System is supposed to be for everyone to be EQUAL IN THE EYES OF THE LAW.
The problem is when some are “represented less”, they are often NOT “represented” at all, because they get overlooked every single time.
This is why problems like racial killings keep happening, because the system overlook those “not-so-valuable” people over and over again.
