Glasson has a rendezvous with destiny

Gubernatorial candidate Cathy Glasson recognizes that in these times in which the production of goods and services is rapidly being assumed by robots, drones and automated system masses of working-class Americans are as owned as were the slaves in the old plantation South who planted the maters tators and picked his cotton for close to nothin’ or they ended up on the short end of his long rope.

In this era of rapid change less and less human toil is needed by big moneychanger capitalists who need fewer working people to do the dirty work, heavy lifting and attention to detail that essentials their profiteering. Human laborers are fast becoming obsolete items are lost leaders to be cheaply headed onto to the landfill of history.

These toil saving scientific and technological advance are the product of the entire culture and not just rendered to be by the hoarders of wealth who have by the power of money and propaganda made big bad government beholding to them as government of the greedy, by the greedy for the greedy. The masses of Americans can feel that this sweep of change is ill serving them and they are mad as hell and are not going to take it anymore. And with no clear calls being issued to engage in making progress for a better future for all, their feelings of anger, fear and frustration scapegoat fester onto others that are as much at the bottom of the heap as they are. Since there is no offer of better progress from trailing along behind a Republican-Heavy Republican or Republican-Lite Democrat governor who fails to offer anything more than meaningless shades of more of the same, a body might as well let off steam by venting on available someone.

In place of just fogging the air one way or another, Cathy Glasson has stirred into the politics of these time an echo of the challenge that was issued by FDR in response to the crushing stagnation of the Great Depression:

“The immortal Dante tells us that divine justice weighs the sins of the cold-blooded and the sins of the warm-hearted in different scales. Better the occasional faults of a Government that lives in a spirit of charity than the consistent omissions of a Government frozen in the ice of its own indifference. There is a mysterious cycle in human events. To some generations much is given. Of other generations much is expected. This generation of Americans has a rendezvous with destiny.”
