    3. Religion should NEVER interfere with politics.
    4. Children should be raised with discipline; none of this 'hug a hoodie' BS. Labour's abolition of discipline has caused Chavs. Chavs are bad.
    5. ANN must be worshipped.

    So yeah, make of it what you will.
    If the government belongs to the people, how would it get to the state of tyranny, unless the people wanted it to?

    Also sometimes people WANT tyranny. When Philip "The Barbarian" (Alexander The Great's dad) tried to pull the Macedonians kicking and screaming into being run as a democracy and with more power to the people there were massive revolts. People didn't want the responsibility. Peisistrasus is another well known story of a populist tyrant who got into power and yet was still incredibly popular. In fact look at modern day Georgia and all the positive things that came from the Rose Revolution.

    I still think non authoritarian is the way to go, but sometimes when a country is falling apart it needs a strong, ruthless leader who only answers to themselves.

    I'm in the bottom left partition of the political spectrum. I'd say I'm a partial deep ecologist, mixed with socialism.

    Retired: 1 x 6mm left lobe, 1 x 5mm left lobe. Hand webbing, 1.6mm, 1.6mm tongue webbing. 1.6 Eyebrow

    Ouroboros Tattoo on leg.

    yep i fear you may be right there

    political awareness in the UK must be at an all time low

    which is what the politicians want

    means that they can pull ridiculous shit and get away with it

    the general sheep populous dont care about politics, as long as they have the x factor to watch on tv and plenty of alcohol to drink / drugs to take to relax

    Neither does the ability to spell, apparently!

    but is it because we live in a truly post-ideological world, or is it that the ideals of the population are not represented by mainstream politricks?

    I think you'd be surprised by how many of the people you'd consider to be aware need to involve them selves in drink and drugs to relax as well. Needless to say you're right, the % of the electorate that actually vote is still falling.

    DRINK & DRUGS ARE AN EXCellent tool for keeping our heads in the sand.
