19th century Politics V 21st Century Technology
What a disjunct between politics and technology -the horse and buggy politics of class conflict, the narrow sectarian tribalism of the old defunct moribund political structures and the liberation of the internet. This mismatch is so stark between technology and fustian bankrupt ideologies of collectivism and statism that it will not be long before the latter is swept away as the detritus of history to be replaced by bespoke individualism, the small state and freedom from the tyranny of top down centralised political control.The latter is only kept going by lazy unthinking tradition and the inertia of groupthink. The corrupt political classes are taking their last gasp as their obituaries are already being written.
