Seems May's quite fucked:
It seems our countries - the most powerful economies in the world - are letting effective governance slip away. Backbiting, resignations, protest.
Obvious that it's more profitable to govern for the few than the many. It might be impossible, as societies get more ethnically diverse, to have a rule of law that applies to everyone. Certainly economic policies can't be homogenous if people from different backgrounds prioritize their lives in vastly different ways from each other.
There's an all encompassing subtext to the angst permeating the US and Europe - the belief that Government needs to be provide for everyone in equal measure - not just justice and freedom,but a home, and a living wage -despite whether one has a job - hell even government delivered environmental salvation. It's now been woven into the fabric of our societies - that the whole take care of the individual in every conceivable fashion - womb to tomb.
Politicians can't stomach the bad press that results in being unable to deliver the absolutely impossible - whether they promised it or not. So they capitulate quickly and grip the political status quo so tightly. In the US, Americans voted for a guy that historically doesn't wield as much power as everyone thinks. The disappointment is beginning to seep into Trump's base. If this market bottoms - then he will be carried out of office, tarred and feathered, by an angry mob.
We are told over and over again that governance is the answer, yet the people we elect provide ever decreasing comfort that they can deliver. Money (credit actually), internet, social media and other circuses are the shitty distractions - but they also carry the same subtle, yet direct message: you should be taken care of.
Actual people who have actual jobs know better - that jobs and food trump political notions of "togetherness" - if you have a family you really don't give a fuck about anything else. Get in the way of that and shit will burn. Calling them racists, because they don't want an overwhelming migrant crises, or that they can't pay a morality tax, will literally do nothing to curb the anger. especially now that everyone knows how weak these administrations are.
