Political Schemes and Social Schedules
You won't see the worth in an idea or policy between two elections.
It would be nice to see the outcome of a political agenda, preferably before the end of the term, but you'd be lucky to see what it does to a whole society of people in a decade—it takes several centuries to make up a fairytale!... In other words, POLITICAL AGENDAS are a small expression of a GLOBAL POTENTIALITY, and all put together over a long period of time these motions will direct the course of mankind & the destiny of nations. We want, and need to know what social schedule our leaders intend to put us through—we feel entitled to know what decisions are being made on our behalf—but you can't ask for that, because they themselves can't tell how it'll all turn out 140 years down the track. No one is good enough to read the future as an open book and no CONSPIRACY is possible where far-ranging futuristic insight is required.
To most of us, interest-rates, inflation, tax, discounts, compensations, budget-allocations & parking-fines are government policies that will affect the quality of life in a community, state or nation. We forget how it used to be. These motions & decrees that can make our life better or more of a burden have a long history—and there is a very important relativity to it.Early Societies had a system of rules & retributions just as we do, albeit somewhat cruder. You didn't get a fine for double-parking your mules in front of Pharaoh's Palace, you were good for the crocodiles or for the Natron Mines... SOCIAL SCHEDULES were already in force while people had no name and no language, in fact. They started shaping society as we know it when they developed a basic power of grasp. SOCIETY is never the result of a coincidence, it always means that decrees & initiatives must be adopted or rejected—by some DELIBERATE procedure, even when this seems to be an an instinctive choice. All beings & creatures have a faculty or SELF-ORIENTATION. Animals, prehistoric people or a child in the wilderness know what to do—because they can decide to go ahead, backtrack or take a turn.
Laws & Policies always are relative to what people have and know of.
Today as always we are affected by what
our Leaders decide though these worries tend to be circumscribed
and the ULTERIOR hardly an issue beyond the years
ahead—whereas in the past no one
thought of a royal decree as better than the last or worse for
the coming year, your survival was at stake in that
motion! Basically, you had to be
"Kosher" as to long-term outcomes. Until Modern Times, people were "superstitious," living
in dread of some cataclysmic punishment—they expected
Divine Wrath or Nature's Revenge in a storm or if the sky looked
