This is neoliberalism.
It can only thrive based on lies.
Based on the idea that the government is broke, in debt to foreign nations or conspiracies like the Rothschilds etc.
They can make the case repeatedly that we cannot afford to do nice things.
Neoliberalism demands a sacrifice and our lives are on the altar of free enterprise.
We have to win with intelligence and execution.
We are doomed without a cerebral revolution and the mindless chasing headlines and issues are bleeding off energy and focus.
