Play along with me. Suppose the powers that be wanted a tightly controlled globalist half socially / digitally controlled society? And the economic house you have built is being propped up by QE, and you have destroyed all the economic supports by off shoring jobs/manufacturing and exploiting wallstreet to fill your coffers…
I think, if I was in that situation, I would put people like Trump and Boris in charge, make them the face of capitalism, while the left ostracizing any independent voter and embraced crazy PC ideas. Let the media highlight all of this, to really drive people right to Trump & Boris. Once they are in and solidified, bottom out the economy and blame it on the most ugly faces of “crony” Capitalism. Then let the people hurt like they haven’t felt since the 1930’s, and in a decade, introduce a new system based on digital currency, social credit, eco debt, MMT, and most if all, UBI!
I’ve been trying to figure out why the “left” seem to think brow beating everyone and ostracizing potention voters would benifit their cause. They drive division hard and with in their own groups. And I don’t think that’s natural, as much as I think it is social manipulation. I wonder if they are pushing people right in order to demonize them with the last 40+ years of shit policies and peg it on two of the most punchable faces? Once they do that, introduce an new standard of living based on the Chinese model of surveillance/ social credit / eco debt which dictates your UBI eligibility. Just some food for thought! Cheers
