We are on the verge of a new politics. ‘Out with the old and in with the new’ used to refer to one establishment party being replaced by the other. It was a cyclical change that meant very little change at all.
Now it is different.
The Farage Phenomenon, one man taking on not only the UK establishment, but the whole EU, and winning, was truly extraordinary. There can be no doubt that Nigel Farage’s success penetrated the US and influenced the election of Donald Trump. It gave hope to millions of people the world over who had given up on the idea of ever really being able to change anything.
Trump winning is the real game-changer though. His victory will unleash the forces of common sense in every election to come. Establishment parties the world over are toast. Those who wield high office now, or have ever done so, will not again.
The people of France, Germany, The Netherlands, Spain, Italy etc., will be eagerly awaiting their own opportunity to demonstrate their disgust with the avarice and immorality of their overlords. From apathy to anger is a big move and it would be unwise for the establishment and their sycophantic supporters to resist it.
The looney left’s domination of the high ground is mercifully at an end. Immigration of undesirables will cease, as will the climate change gravy train. The whole PC agenda is about to be overturned, though it has already caused considerable damage. Particularly to the unfortunates who have recently exited the western government run school systems. They have been thoroughly indoctrinated with the ghastliest BS and it will be a while before they can make the transition to the real world.
Having said all that, I don’t think of the new politics as a revolution; it’s simply a return to common sense and reality. The world had intellectually run off the rails. Normal people were alienated and confused by the absurd dogma that spewed out on the nightly news.
What was the source of the madness? Undoubtedly it was the quasi-money that governments were able to borrow into existence – seemingly without end. They doled it out to daft groups in order to buy votes. Unfortunately, it was not just a waste of money, it encouraged the fringe groups to take themselves seriously.
Well there was an end and we have now reached it. Along with the false prosperity came a false sense of reality – an unreality.
Now we must return to reality and for most of us that is a blessing. For others, they will continue to march and protest in the streets, until the day that their government money fails to arrive.
Then they too will return to reality.
