Philosophy is the rational and critical inquiry into basic principles of universal truth. These principles enable a solid foundation for society without which there cannot be stability. Democracy establishes its center around the lowest common denominator which consequently and effectively eliminates truthful inquiry as a mass ideal. And so, democracy is the antithesis of philosophy. Politicians are pawns to the lowest common denominator for if they were not they wouldn't be elected. We must learn the truth of who we are in common so that we may raise the denominator for the good of all.

Sublimation is the politician’s way
Noble philosophy reduced to clay
Building walls to earn his way
Gems of knowledge lost in clay.

Philosophy can not a foot-hold gain
Requires a private disclaim
Democracy is a demon’s game
Reduced we are by the mass to fail.

The noble politician is compromised
The common denominator will be his bind
Will be the reason he becomes confined
Step outside – he will be fined.

Noble thoughts can not defend
When outside the rampant trend
The trend that builds the material view
In spite of all the constants true .

Listen to the heart of an average man
He will show that he’s no fool
He is powerful on his own
No way he’ll be a tool.

Observe him when the challenge comes
All alone he will disown
All the truth he defends alone
He will want a validation mold.

The politician becomes a tailored clone
Many different suits to own
He will answer ego’s phone
He will compromise his soul.

Philosophy will reduce to become
An accommodation for an ego fee
The most powerful feeding at evil’s knee
Financial security the power to free.

Better houses, cars & clones
College educations to master defeat
To teach them that they must compete
The world their smorgasbord to feast.

Gain & pain, chase the tail
Advance & live like kings to fail
Life a vicious game to play
Better rocket wins the day.

The politician is a chameleon at play
Knows his future is a compromised delay
Public service in disarray
Extinction is the price to pay.

Politicians don’t trust what the Ancients told
If they did – democracy would fold
Philosophy would become the center to hold
Truth would release & become as gold.

Great write Tom! May 'Truth release and become as gold'.

'Listen to the heart of an average man
He will show that he’s no fool
He is powerful on his own
No way he’ll be a tool.'

Hear, hear! And, may raise the denominator for the good of all!
Keep raising such powerful awareness!
Love, Suzie
