Blame beneficiaries, blame the young, blame the old, blame the boomers, blame Maori, blame Pakeha, blame granny, hell, why don’t we just blame the Jews!
Anything except place the blame where it belongs. On successive Governments who have sold us out to the rich, and offshore corporates. And the system which allows a few stupid politicians dictatorial powers over the rest of us.
(As someone once said. “If voting made any difference, they, would abolish it!”)
Politicans who do whatever the corporate puppet masters, who fund them, wish! Whether it is for ideological reasons, (useful idiots/puppets ) or out of pure self interest, in their retirement sinecure from grateful corporates after they leave parliament.
You would think that people like Bernard Hickey would be wise to the lessons of history.
The powerful scapegoating those rendered powerless, while they sell out, exploit and steal from, the rest of us is an often repeated meme.
