The Government we deserve?

Well.  Is there a point here?  I guess there is, and it’s this – next time we find ourselves wondering how a nation of nice, congenial citizens such as the United Kingdom can elect a series of vicious, contemptuous, mean-as-fuck governments like the ones we’ve had this last three decades, maybe we should re-evaluate our assumptions.

If our governments are vicious and contemptuous, delighting in cracking down on and exploiting our weaknesses then just maybe, they’re a reflection of ourselves.

Hey, if that’s the case, that would mean that we’d deserve to be ruled by mean-as-fuck snobs who hate our guts.

Now, isn’t that a thought?
