I notice that you didn't say he was wrong, either about the future of the economy or the stupidity of the people.
The fact is, the vast majority of people (especially younger people) are naive, insular, brain-dead idiots.
Have you tried to talk about economic policy to anyone?
You'll find that most are too interested in celebrity gossip, they'll look at you with a blank stare the moment you mention inflation.
I'll focus on the youth for a moment...
Raised in an environment where they have access to games and media, and where such trivial things hold importance over anything else, there is no
deliberate desire to learn anything beyond the next dance move or game cheat.
These kids have never had to experience anything catastrophic or challenging beyond their personal lives. They've never really seen a war in their
country, never had to experience economic trouble on this scale, never had to really think about their future. It's planned out before them as though
it's all guaranteed and nothing could happen to change it.
One of the most fascinating things I have seen recently was in the video footage of the G20.
When the riot police stormed the University, you could hear students talking about it, saying how shocked they were. They seemed completely oblivious
to why the people were protesting!
These are university students, and they don't even know why people were protesting!?
The look of shock on their faces when the riot police attacked THEM, simply for being there, was remarkable. It showed the delusion and naivety in
their fragile little brains, unable to comprehend what they were witnessing.
In my view, there are two types of people in our societies, those who seek information to learn about any given situation, and those who are
unwilling, incapable or simply too stupid and lazy to bother. Unfortunately, the latter are in the majority, and the PTB know it.
P.S. I think I am in love with this guy *leaves to start some internet stalking*.
