There is something fundamentally wrong w much of today's political commentary. Almost no focus on creating a society where government provides services without asphyxiating taxpayers. Assumption is that people's dependence on gov't needs to be deepened evey single day.
Perhaps this doesn't bother millennials because they see this as the norm. For those of us who grew up in a far more independent Canada where people were spending 15-20% of income on housing & the same for food, it's hard to look at current picture & respect those who govern us.
It's equally hard to respect pols/academics/pundits who defend dependency, calling it progress and wanting more of the same. Social justice is defined as giving up our economic independence to our gov't masters who will "repair damage" done by previous generations.
I've seen many a swindle. But never have so many been ripped off by so few-in the name of social progress.Progress should be about citizens gaining economic independence, not surrendering it. If growing anxiety about food & shelter is progress,what does going backward look like?
