Oh, the applications of those paragraphs.

Although "The Willpower Instinct" was published in 2012, politicians have known about this book's teachings and grim results for a long time. The politicians and propagandists know that the bigger the lies about hope and change, the more the People will believe in them. Ergo, our present dilemma in this country. Lots of hope, big hopes in fact. However, no tangible change worth anything worthy of a celebration. The masters of deception prey upon these inner hopes and dreams that People have set for themselves. Very few actually attain these high expectations, and the success rate with actual political change is even lower than that; unfortunately, real change only seems to come about by revolution. Having said that, I have set big goals for this coming year. Ha!

Peace in 2013.
