It's Not Working So Change It

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.
