The reason our nation is in the state it is…….

….is due to the standard of politicians with which we have ‘appointed’.

Consider:

Knowledge:

He who knows not, but knows not that he knows not, is a fool:

Shun him!

He who knows not, but knows that he knows not, is simple:

Teach him!

He who knows not, but knows not that he knows, is asleep:

Wake him!

He who knows, and knows that he knows, is a wise man:

Follow him!

The problem we have in this nation of ours is:

We have 650 of of the first; we cannot do anything about the second or third (which encapsulate the first) because they refuse to listen to  us; and we have none of the last.

People: by refusing to take an interest in politics per se; by refusing to question whether there exists other forms of democracy; by burying your heads in the proverbial sand, you have just achieved the impossible: you have procreated yourselves.

Having made your bed, one can only hope you are comfortable in it – in which case, would you all (politicians, commentariat and those on twitter) stop ‘carping’ about what you feel is wrong with our nation?

Just asking……………………….
