Eurasia or Eastasia?
Every few years TPTB offer the electorate two clenched hands; in A a palmful of promises, in B a fist with which to beat them repeatedly until the next election. The majority choose incorrectly and receive a good dose of political pugilism. Next time round they figure that they'll choose the other. Unfortunately, in the meantime TPTB have performed the old switcheroo so back to another 4/5 years of face-slapping. Again, the next time round they figure they'll go back to their original choice. Rinse and repeat.
