Part 3 of Diminutive

.

True leadership

Would be making sure

Every belly was full

That every planetary

Resident has clean

Drinking water

Roofs over their heads

Access to health care

Think we can’t afford it

I’m no mathematician but

Pretty sure if we transferred

All the resources feeding

The military industrial complex

We could probably just do

What that one book suggests

Something about beating

Those swords into plowshares

Not accepting the

Manufactured Consent

Notion of leadership

That the more you can

Wield your power

In the face of decency

The more you can

Build a wall / pass legislation

To keep people out

Rebuild the doomsday machine

Though it is

Completely unnecessary

Save the comic book or

Austin Powers movie scene

Bit where Dr. Evil

Ransoms annihilation

For a “million” dollars aspect

Of dominion over all

Just because you can

And sheep

Need a flock master

“How, then, do terrorists manage to dominate the headlines and change the political situation throughout the world?

By provoking their enemies to overreact. In essence, terrorism is a show. Terrorists stage a terrifying spectacle of violence that captures our imagination and makes us feel as if we are sliding back into medieval chaos.

Consequently states often feel obliged to react to the theatre of terrorism with a show of security, orchestrating immense displays of force, such as the persecution of entire populations or the invasion of foreign countries.

In most cases, this overreaction to terrorism poses a far greater threat to our security than the terrorists themselves.

Terrorists are like a fly that tries to destroy a china shop. The fly is so weak that it cannot budge even a single teacup. So it finds a bull, gets inside its ear and starts buzzing. The bull goes wild with fear and anger, and destroys the china shop.”

“The Homo Deus”
