Little people



Little people caught by the pace and challenges of change.
.
In some countries they are called poor, in some under priveliged and in others the underclass. 
.
No matter the name, the problems are the same.
.
Recent events have created changes and situations they cannot avoid.
.
Situations not of their own making.
.
Situations created by generations of greedy, selfish leaders.
.
Generations of poor decisions.
.
Leaders intent on preserving their own power and privileges.
.
Was a time when politicians and diplomats had time to practice their skills before assuming high office.
.
Some even pretended to care
.
No more
.
Politics today is seen as a full time profession
.
Little need for experience of the real world, in they dive into their chosen world.
.
Quickly they learn the arts of lying, prevarication, compromise, arse licking and the rest.
.
Only times have changed now because everything has speeded up.
.
The internet and instant global communications have forced these people to comment and react quicker
.
Quicker and quicker as our experience of time continues to compress.
.
Our experience of time going faster and faster.
.
Creating exposure where the lies and denials have to come faster and faster.
.
Hastily formed commissions promising to look into the latest scandal or f***k up.
.
Even these are now being exposed for what they are.
.
Time is forcing the pace.
.
Little people the world over being hurt.




They have always been hurt.
.
They are always there.
.
Nowhere to run or hide.
.
Just having to take whatever is foisted on them.
.
Plenty is written about their plight




And yet generation after generation more slide into poverty.
.
Many more now in every country owing to the current economic situation.
.
How can this be when many are so rich today with assets way beyond their means to spend or use?
.
One may not like communism or socialism however their ideals are fine most would agree.
.
Just human greed always seems to get in the way.
.
Time to get real and admit that consumption based economics are not the way to go.
.
The disparities between rich and poor are a scandal.
.
And yet we still will not engage in discussion about a fairer way to use our resources.
.
No matter the perfect storm approaches.
.
A storm that the rich no more than the little people will be able to avoid.
.
Maybe, just maybe, this will focus minds.
.
That we are all one.
.
Interdependent on each other.
.
If the little people suffer then you will too.
.
This has not been understood.
.
The rich for some reason seeming to believe that this is nothing to do with them.




Wrong!
.
Where there is suffering anywhere on this planet and you have the where with all to do something about it and choose not to then you take your negative karma.
.
The little people you look down on, are you from a previous life, paying their karma.
.
Just as you must in the next.
.
Time to wake up.
.
We are all in this mess together.
