On How to Vote and Live to Enjoy it


"Voters in Brazil are getting ready to vote in their next president in a run-off contest to be held next Sunday. Who might be the next to inherit the throne is anyone's guess."


That's tomorrow, by the way! Are we gonna be the next country in Latin America to have a woman as president? Are we keeping on with the testosterone in high powers?

Or do you think this is more a question of good policies versus bad policies and the good of the nation? Are you partisan? Or do you think that it does not damn matter who is power and that usually governments are just puppets in the hands of super secret cabals, of cliques trying to run the world?

Cynically, we happen to think that it usually is more of the same. It does not matter who is at the helm. The rich keep getting richer, the poor keep getting poorer.

Perhaps we should all think about educating the masses and give them  the wherewithal with which to think for themselves. Help them understand that this is a vast Universe, we Earthlings a mere speck of.

We should forfeit the bad and hold on to the good and see the Other as diversity and not as a threat to our established ideas...


Oh, we wish.
