O, How The Times Have Changed!

For a long time we had politicians from the two major blocs trying to sound or appear to  different basic values from each other to appeal to voters (even though they were basically the same). Now we have politicians from both major blocs trying to sound as if they all hold the same basic values to try and pull down those from their own party who are changing the status quo! Something has rocked their long established, smooth running gravy train.

For a long time until recently, there was just one political establishment, with one agenda in most democracies with the illusion of two major parties or blocs. Their members worked hard at trying to appear and sound different from each other and appealing to people artificially divided into a right and left. It was well understood that if the people got tired or frustrated with one government, they had the option to juggle and elect the supposed 'other'. Only effective choice was between the two fakes. Corruption become endemic and has probably peaked.

Now that true anti-establishment, nationalist and more honest opposition has cropped up from within the system and even got elected to power, suddenly we have the opposite effect - the supporters of the establishment from within both blocs trying to appeal to voters by trying to sound and appear as if they hold  the same basic values!! Most are trying hard to appear different from people in their own party or bloc! This truly warrants thinking deeply about the root causes. This has happened in India, the USA, the UK, the Philippines..And spreading around to more places.
