Distance and scorn

  Gloria de Piero, a former journalist, and now MP for the Labour Party in the United Kingdom wondered why people just don’t like her, don’t like politicians in general, and according to herself set out to investigate why.
  She found at least part of the obvious answer: People feel strongly and accurately that most politicians just don’t have any idea of how most people live and what their concerns and problems are, thus their solutions and voting are doomed to be flawed.
  And it is, by far.
  And this is just the tip of the iceberg. All the dominant parties in the UK, like most dominant parties most places have various policies hostile to all life. They are the abject enemy of justice, equality and anything smacking of creating the good life for anyone, except for themselves and their peers.
  Gloria is a member of the Labour Party, one faction of the power hungry very eager to implement totalitarian laws and practices. Tony Blair and those in his circle virtually set a record there. The current government is better in some ways, worse in others. None of the two factions offers or is interested in offering any true solutions to the woes of mankind.
  People should hate politicians. They are, generally speaking indifferent power-grabbers enjoying their wealth and position for all it is worth, serving a corrupt system constantly stepping on the poor and not so well off.
  It isn't just politicians that are deliberately distancing themselves from most people, but journalists as well and most people part of the established order, so she is at least twice wrong. She lied and reported lies for years for the establishment she serves, and now she has taken a step up from there.
  I see her entire campaign of «curiosity» described in the Guardian article as just one more attempt at deception and diversion.
