Are you hard-wired to be a follower rather than a leader?
Are you susceptible to Creep?
“My parents took the view that the Germans are easily led. I take the same view. But I differ in that I think we are all easily led. Humans are built to be led. It’s what enables us to operate in societies instead of just squabbling with each other for scarce resources.
Since the time of Hitler, the way we are controlled has changed. We are told there’s a democracy. And many of us may believe that. But the reality is that we have very limited choice at election time and the main political parties have a stranglehold on the process. In parliament your MP is told strictly how to vote. He’s not his own man. Only rarely can a well-meaning independent reach the Commons.
But it’s worse than this. The policies of the main parties are not really determined by the wishes of the electorate. We all know of the strong support for the NHS. But the Coalition has changed the basis of the NHS without any public support. And before them Labour was intent on heading the same way.
It might not be so bad if our masters were acting in our best interests but they are not. They are acting in the best interests of themselves and their paymasters. At least when Hitler was in charge there was a visible unequivocal villain. Now the corridors of power are controlled by a more insidious evil of which few of us are much aware. That evil takes the form of the lobbying industry. Ironically this scandal-in-the-waiting was recognised by the prime minister himself. Judge for yourself whether he has met his promise to stop the lobbyists from influencing government policy.”
What will you do when the NHS is as dead as a dodo?
For pities sake, read these links, you stupid, lazy, blinkered, creeping humankind!!!!
