For every act of evil, there is an act of beauty. You Can't Change the World, Only Your Attitude Towards It.

political fish of change

In the ocean most people are plankton.

Those in council or politics who truly work for positive change are few, far between and as ineffective as a small fish on directing the ocean.

The big fish, the sharks and the whales are the many who enter politics for the free ticket: keep the system churning, disrupt the little fish and some just hoover plankton. Their aim is not change but just to maintain a self feeding system, one which smashes positive progress, justifies their own roles, feeds them and little by little removes rights and wealth from the true blood of the ocean.

The tide is Yin Yang, no matter how the big fish affect change in the ocean they can never stop the tide and natural ocean currents. Although the big fish will often tell the plankton that tidal changes are due to plankton's ways and so tax should be raised to stop it.

The Taoist, seeing how it all is, sits in his boat and in thousands of years all he has seen is natural patterns.

Very, very nice metaphor. Love this, Tawan.

Just some flickering wonder though; why don't Taoist be just an all-witnessing plankton? Hahaha :D
