Our politicians are enemies of the people

Friday-weekend blog

I was going to write a Friday/weekend blog. But then I came across this article on Friday’s Conservative Woman. It says everything I would have wanted to say:

Perhaps the only thing I would add is my disgust at how the mainstream media has grovellingly supported and encouraged our predatory, parasitic political, academic and bureaucratic elites in impoverishing our lives, restricting our freedoms and destroying our society with open-borders, Third-World immigration.

    I wasn’t impressed with this. How can an MP represent our best interests when we all have different views? It also mentions a dose of altruism, meaning we have to put the benefits of others before our own. All the parties are about altruism – individuals don’t matter and we have to consider the greater good. To hell with that.

    Unfortunately MPs are supposed to be our representatives, not our delegates. Thus there is no obligation for them to implement the manifestos they were fraudulently elected on. Which is how they can get away with never doing so.

    It seems to me that the only way we can effect change is by refusing to vote (or by spoiling our ballot papers if they make voting compulsory) and from the figures you showed us recently it appears that conservative (with a small c) voters are now doing exactly that.

    But another part of the problem is that the political leadership suffers no real consequences when they do things that result in appalling consequences for the population. So they lose an election? So what? They slide smoothly sideways into lucrative sinecures in banking, the law, the Uni’s, the EU and WEF bureaucracies.
    They are already millionaires or multi-millionaires, and politics is really only a hobby, something that will look good on a future CV and which allows them to play with grown-up toys for a couple of years.

    Sunak and his grisly crew will suffer no personal hardship when they are justly evicted from Whitehall; they will not have to make the slightest adjustments to their lifestyles, in the way that the decisions they made (ore neglected to make) have impacted ours on a daily basis.

    Even Mafia bosses face the eternal threat of arrest….

    An excellent comment from Jeffrey. Some MPs are already making adjustments to the lives in preparation for the inevitable.

    I came back to this because I have just followed up some references on the Mises website and found an extract from Hayek’s book The Road to Serfdom, given the title “why the worst get on top”:

    “Just as the democratic statesman who sets out to plan economic life will soon be confronted with the
    alternative of either assuming dictatorial powers or abandoning his plans, so the totalitarian leader would soon have to choose between disregard of ordinary morals and failure. It is for this reason that the unscrupulous are likely to be more successful in a society tending toward totalitarianism. Who does not see this has not yet grasped the full width of the gulf which separates totalitarianism from the essentially individualist Western civilization.”

    The state is taking over more and more of our lives, with care for the elderly and the young now firmly in their control and destroying what make us individuals – family life. Add in the propaganda from the media, in schools and universities, and what we think is no longer our own.
