Politics is tearing itself apart

Recommended Posts

It's the logical conclusion of divisive technocratic elitist monetary policy. Anything could happen now.

The thing that I find hardest to understand out of all of it is why the 50+ age group seem so unhappy. Politicians have picked them to be winners for decades - rising real wages, able to buy a house and raise a family on a single wage, decent pensions, they got the house price inflation they seemed to want, politicians pander to this group far more than younger cohorts etc. So why are they convinced that they are so hard done by?

This is my question too. And still a lot of them (not all) rage against the youth.

It seems they had it all but also want to prevent the youth from having their turn at changing the world.

No group in any society ever thinks, we have had preferential treatment for so long, lets give somebody else a go. They feel entitled to what they have. In fact, the more unjust the situation , the stronger the defence of entitlement.  Raging against the youth is really a justification for letting the drawbridge get pulled up while being protected themselves. 

The thing is, nobody actually believes in the system anymore, we just all publicly pretend to believe because it is convenient.

Politics isn't tearing itself apart. It's shifting.

The divide is no longer between communism and capitalism, it's between globalism and nationalism. The 'elite' want a globalized world where they're in charge and raking in all the dough. The people who actually do the work want nations where they can decide their fate.

Arguing about ideology is pointless when you don't have nations to argue about it in.
