Institutionalization, a way of life in politics...
From a popular website: A definition or two for institutionalization;
The term institutionalization is widely used in social theory to denote the process of making something (for example a concept, a social role, particular values and norms, or modes of behavior) become embedded within an organization, social system, or society as an established custom or norm within that system. See the entries on structure and agency and social construction for theoretical perspectives on the process of institutionalization and the associated construction of institutions.
Some might think that Congress, both the House and the Senate, are dynamic groups of individuals seeking to make the US Government work for the people. Others know it for what it is, a group of institutionalized people controlled by a political party whom discriminates against all the have not’s in favor of the have’s, period. You can try and freshen that thought, lipstick on a pig comes to mind, but it is what it is…
Both parties are institutionalized and so therefore anything they touch is as well and you will notice the Demo’s have more pigs in lipstick than the Repubs do, a hard feat to achieve but they have done it. We will have people without regard to the general publics interest doing what the want, without regard to oversight because to them, and to all whom are institutionalized, you live in your own world without regards to others.
How can they get away with it you say? Well they have lots of company, the Bureaucrats that run the State Dept are the same, the Administrators at most schools are the same, the Justice system is the same, the local governments are the same, the Unions are the same, …
Institutionalization is a way of life for so many now that somewhere along the way society failed to realize what is now most obvious, we are run by institutionalized people. If your not scared you should be… If your not scared visit your local Insane Asylum to see what happens to institutionalized people… and if that doesn’t scare you, you must be dead…
Have a good one…
