It's Not Working So Change It [Jul. 11th, 2019|01:19 pm]
Tony Grist
Our next prime minister is shortly to be chosen by the tiny percentage of the population who are paid-up members of a deeply unpopular political party. It's an electorate of people who have effectively purchased their right to vote. Most of the country, faced with the choice of Candidate A and Candidate B, would almost certainly go, "Neither of the above."

If this is an example of how politics is conducted in a so-called democracy.... Well, complete that sentence however the spirit moves..

Politics across the globe is so disfunctional.

But it always have been.

So don't go into a decline about it. Take heart. The difference between now and then is that the disfunction is more evident than ever before. Isn't that what Trump is for- to display the disfunction in all its infantile glory, uncensored, without any overlay of pretended sophistication?

And the more we're aware of the disfunction the more we'll be motivated to change it.

I think people are worn out by all this dysfunction and their motivation to change anything is waning. It's disheartening some days.

I'm looking to the young to make a difference. They're the ones with the energy.

Do you think so? I have started to fear that the more we are confronted with the disfunction, the more used to it we get....

Our generation may be weary and jaded but there will always be youngsters coming up who aren't.
