Just thought I’d post some perusing here and see what feedback it gets…
I’m not promising this is the most coherent theory ever produced - its saturday night and I’m in from the pub…
So heres my theory - We are in an age of Anti-Reality. Not irrationality; anti-reality.
As I pointed out in the Immigration thread, when politicians or political doctrines deny the reality that an increase in the supply of X (labour) results in a decline in the price of X (wages relative to costs) then the system breaks down and chaos will ensue.
We could argue the same about ‘climate change’ - denying that CO2 production causes atmospheric change results in the same scenario. Its demonstrably true.
Identity politics attempts to frame what are broadly psychological or emotional issues for a tiny minority as issues of national import and social development.
The pure insanity of, for example, the Syrian campaign, the UK poison attacks and Wikileaks revelations, has greatly weakened my faith in the MSM and leads me to doubt its veracity and independence.
More than that, there are numerous examples of it being exposed as little more than shill-houses for corporate interests.
Fringe issues are taking over the mainstream and one must consider that this is by design.
Witness the constant barracking of Trump about everything except when he is angling for war in Syria or Venezuela. Its incredible.
As for myself, having access to ‘irregular’ media as well as the MSM has highlighted a massive gulf between the two.
Politically, the left are imploding because they imply that your personal problems are as a result of policy failures while the right are failing because they know the price of everything, the value of nothing and are hellbent on selling off anything of value like some suicide cult.
And so, I submit, we are here on the brink of real, genuine, social, political, national and international Insanity.
I didnt say its was pretty, or coherent, but for what it is; What say you?
