A Guide to Win the Elections
We can’t deny that in our days: media, money and power can make a winner of any candidate for the parliament. And before I go further, I would like to stress the fact that I do not support any candidate in particular! After all, it is survival of the “most adaptive” (or “fittest” if you wish to stick to the classics) and we have to accept this fact.
Unfortunately in our days, the “most adaptive” is the person who can use the means available to him/her in order to win the elections (or to win any other “prize”) as follows:
- Media Factor: We can strongly sense the effect of media, mainly TV stations, in brainwashing the minds of common public. In the age of information, media decides for the public who is worthy and who is unworthy, and they feed their decisions to the most of the unaware public that will passively learn.
- Money Factor: Money plays a major role; other than buying the media, money has proven to be an important factor in buying the candidate a “ticket” in some proven (transportation) means such as Berri’s famous Bosta (bus). On the other hand, many people can be bought for the right price.
- Power Factor: It is ironic how power begets power. Once the candidate is in a position of power, and he does some “favors” (mafia style) to some people… and foreover he becomes their “godfather”; from that time on, they will only elect him. The story doesn’t end here, it goes further where this man asks his “descendants” to elect that “boss” and to elect his “descendants” just to pay him back!
Who is electing in a right way? Those who can't be bought by money yet they are choosing through educated decisions. In front of all this, I doubt that a good and honest man will get his chance to represent anyone in the parliament!
