We live in an age of irrationality, how else to explain the political scene in this country. From Harper to Ford and maybe soon Hudak we are are governed by people whose policies are so ruinous that their assent to and continued hold on power defies rationality.
I'm at a loss to explain why so many continue to support these evil bastards whose policies run counter to their own,their family's and the nation's best interests. It can't be the I'm alright Jack syndrome because the majority of us aren't but then again maybe it is as many have this irrational belief that they are alright Jack.
From near historical inequality, massive poverty, erosion of our standard of living and stubbornly high unemployment. To education priced out of the range of the majority and rampant political repression, the curtailing of democratic institutions and rampant political corruption we have seldom been worse off.
Yet so many continue to cheer on those responsible. Perhaps people have retreated into irrational thought because to take a rational look at where we are today is just too frightening and more importantly requires a good hard look in the mirror.
But gaze into that mirror we must for we have met the enemy and it is us.
