This Civilization Is Mentally Ill

“It’s time for another US presidential race where populist factions on both sides spend a few months angrily decrying the establishment before voting for candidates in the general election who will fully serve that same establishment. I think this is just the norm now. Public discontent with the US political status quo is now so great that there’s going to be a new ‘Hey kids, you can vote your way into revolutionary change!’ feature built into every presidential election. 2012 was the end of a political era. … The biggest misconception about politics is that political differences have any meaningful existence at all. Everyone’s herded into two mainstream factions who both serve the interests of the powerful, while those few who can’t be herded are marginalized into political impotence. And I am of course mainly talking about the English-speaking world here.” (05/10/23)
