@case-sensitive you have mangled what I said beyond recognition. All I'm sayingv simply, you live in a democratic system that is being misused by the voters and parties alike. The power has always been with the voters. Yes policy and outcomes can be and have been influenced by the rich et al. However this blame solely lies with the voting population, for not seeing beyond the fluff. Also don't separate the two classes of society, they are ultimately all humans with the same flaws etc. @gorski there is a solution 1) have stricter rules governing people running for public office., Let them actually be qualified to run 2) Ban ad campaigns and let them do their campaigning by debates etc we all know the unwashed masses are easily influenced by ads. 3) stop mixing news on social media platforms.
