We need to develop a cast of cultural geeks. I’m thinking of the fools of the middle ages. They were the guys dressed up like the Jack in a deck of cards. They looked foolish. It was deliberate. Their job was to insult the king in order to keep him humble. They would say things on a regular basis that would get other people separated from their heads. Sometimes that was the result for the fool. At least it was a steady job.
I am thinking we need some cultural geeks, some cyber fools. We need a group of people to tell those in power that they are really being stupid. We need someone who can penetrate through the bubble surrounding politicians and connect him with real people and what they are thinking. I will grant you that many will not care. Too many fit into the category described in Proverbs,
(Pro 4:16 KJV) For they sleep not, except they have done mischief; and their sleep is taken away, unless they cause some to fall.We have a growing pestilence of people in power who really are evil and relish passing it on. There is no other explanation for the things that people like Soros and Klaus are perpetrating. They already have all the money available. They have lots of syncopates praising them about how brilliant they are. All that is left if power. You also see it in the clerk behind the counter at the government agency. They will never go any higher but they can push you lower.
Perhaps we could have the opposing party appoint a presidential fool. The actual fool in the White House would have no input and the thorn in the flesh would have his own apartment on the grounds. It might also be necessary to make it illegal for the media to quote this person.
No thanks, I don’t want the job.
