We are ruled. By psychopaths and sociopaths. We do not choose these leaders. They are not the men and women we would have represent us. We have nothing in common with them and they have nothing in common with us. Their ways are not our ways. They are not like us, no more than if they really were David Icke's space aliens. They are just as different from us, as remote as if they were other than human.
The psychopath snickers at what he thinks would amuse us, as well. They are monsters, they are born that way and they can never do anything but seduce us to give away our human dignity and sacrifice everything we have worth fighting for.
It's never fun to shoot people. It's also never fun to eat them or see them drawn and quartered by horses. These people appeal to the damaged aspect inside every man that represents the madness we tried to escape with Republics. They are anti-humans and they are our rulers.
