They say reality has a naturally left-wing bias. I say anyone who is fully developed as a human is by their nature an acolyte of the left. Those on the right are all stunted in one way or another. #auspol
You might think because there are a lot of smart people on the ‘right’, that their version of the truth is just as legitimate. But that’s poppycock. Plenty of smart people are ignorant, this is because for them the truth doesn’t come first. Their personal and tribal narratives do. They contort all their information around their narratives of the world. Just because you’re a clever clogs does not make you more true or honest. These smart idiots are good at creating clever and intelligent sounding but ultimately false narratives that all the people who don’t really think for themselves can get behind. The right are for the most part wrong, but they also have big muscles and are funded by deep self-serving pockets. So in summation, we’re all fucked.
Humanity won’t survive if the rich elite can’t start being honest with themselves and allow honesty to be the underpinnings of our discourse.
The growing divide in western nations, are a result of chickens coming home to roost in regards to the manipulation of the populace.
Imagine if you will if corporations decided what was best for society, while their main aim was to maximise profit. And imagine if there wasn’t a body, let’s call it a government, with the power or will to keep these corporations in check, ensuring that their need to maximise profit didn’t overrule all other human and environmental concerns. Now imagine changes took place in the 70s and 80s to make that a reality. Now imagine that’s the reason for the shitshow we see playing out in society today.
Those who fit themselves within the parameters of the system’s culture, and don’t look for what’s right, but what it is that will help them advance; are often rewarded for it. And those who are contrarian, who speak of the errors and misgivings of the culture are often ignored and even punished.
