Such is the state of Europe that they can have an ‘insider’ from the financial world, whom the MSM depict as an ‘outsider’. It seems the people bought it for a while, but Macron is already losing popularity, almost in record time, as his clothes spontaneously and publicly fall away. This show pony is not an insider, despite this being the way he marketed himself in the lead up to the French elections. Anyone who clings to the EU , in the way he does, in truth snatches the whole package. Those who support both the EU and globalism cannot be ‘outsiders’.
The way I see it, in this country, the MSM is too pervasive, too institutionalised. Our rusted on Labor supporters tend to rely on the Free to air TV channels rather than read the political articles in the Daily Telegraph, and they certainly don’t read The Australian (would never have heard of Quadrant) so they will take that much longer to ‘crack’. But some things are getting through despite this, hence the growth of One Nation and The Australian Conservatives (though the MSM show a remarkable resistance towards showing any interest in Cory’s developments, meaning he’ll continue to grow under the radar). The polls respond to his party as ‘other’, putting him in the same basket as the ALA and some 2016 party (that may no longer exist). Being overlooked may be a good thing, but the downside is doesn’t attract the free publicity One Nation and Donald Trump did, by the bucket-full.
As has been rightly expressed before, the Deep State and institutionalised religion don’t mix very well, but those unemployed ‘educated people’ with their ‘useless degrees’ are part of that 10% minority dominated by GetUp and the Greens. They are young, furiously idealistic, but ultimately part of the stagnation set. Some of your unsupported, distorted narrative comes from this lot. They manage to pluck it out of the air, rather than expend necessary energy on research, or wide reading.
Single word epithets represent screeds of confuse narrative, as they tear down ‘No’ supporter placards, calling a Maronite, Australian-born ‘activist’ a racist (despite being Lebanese) whilst simultaneously telling him to go back where he came from, despite being born here. Telling him to go back where he came from is coincidentally totally at odds with the ‘open borders’ narrative the stupid woman in normal circumstances adheres to. But ‘racist’ and ‘homophobe’ are the screechy single word slogans to replace a slightly more articulate ‘I don’t agree with you’, position (or more accurately ‘you don’t agree with me, and the things you say are extremely hurtful to me’).
Perhaps this is what a post modernist education produces: dull herds of young voters, fed on unrelated bits of information, to which an infinite number of interpretations have been applied , where every hazy argument carries the same weight as every other headless chook sort of pronouncement. Every ‘student’ receives a ‘pass’ for assignments that ought to be hanging from a hook in an outback dunny. There are no longer unequivocal fails any more. All this adds to the exponential decline in genuine debate.
