The Folly Of Politics...

Recommended Posts

Party (a) is in power...

'New vision for Britain and a bright future...'

Party (b gets elected because it turns out party (a) were lying toads

'New vision for Britain, honesty and integrity...'

Party (b turn out to be even bigger lying toads than party (a)

Party (a) is given another chance 'Our new vision is shiny and good for the environment'

Party (a) delivers nothing, back to party (b who have been in the wilderness so long that people think they have changed

Party (b delivers nothing

This is what the political process delivers for the average person, alternating between failures. Only the wealthy are consistently well served by politicians, and the reason for that is because most of them are in the pockets of the wealthy and powerful.

I see you are beginning to get the hang of it! :P

Now tell us something we don't know, like what are you going to do about it? :unsure:

Organize a mass boycott of all elections! That should help strip away the illusion of people power thinly veiling the pluto-VIs.

We already have that - have you seen the turnouts in recent years?

If I can't find someone to vote for I always spoil my paper, rather than abstain - at least they have to count those.

An understanding of physics and human nature helps - if simply electing the right bunch of clowns brought instant utopia, don't you think it would have happened somewhere, sometime, by now - if only by pure chance?

Ahh, but do 'we know'? If that was true why do people here and in many other places discuss the relative merits of the political parties as if it makes any difference to the end result

Welcome to the journey down the rabbit hole.

I think it actually rose between 2001 and 2005. But I didn't know the fall from 1997 to 2001 was in any way "organized". It's amazing these days how easily large numbers can be mobilized by texting and web posts - remember that poor couple whose house was trashed by all those cyber-informed gatecrashers at their daughter's party?

Seriously, just think of the political impact of an explicit campaign which successfully slashed turnout down to say below 40% - quite unprecedented! Time for another HPC - "hefty poll crash" :lol:

Politicians secretly love low turnouts as it suggests a great apathy and lack of interest in what they are actually doing.

Politician's do naff all.

The state is run by bureaucrat's and technocrats who never get moved, never get altered and by powerful financial figures behind the scenes who would have anyone who looked like changing anything shot about 15 seconds after they got into the pages of the Sun.

They are salesmen for murder, theft and lies. That's all.

For some reason, unlike governments in other parts of the world, who are openly corrupt and evil, our lot in the west have chosen PR to do with freedom, liberty and choice, when all there really is on offer is "my way or go to jail".
