The polarisation of politics is a defining character of our times. Right and left wing extremism is a tool being used by Fundamental Capitalists to destroy nature, nations, community, family, individual belief systems and the environment in order to weaken and break people into the new global corporate world order. . As traditional political systems buckle under the power of the corpocracy, right and left wing polarisation is the only way that politicians can maintain some relevance and serve some purpose to the seat of modern power- corporate leaders. The corporate leaders lobby politicians and also make their lives easier by single large points of taxation and can execute large infrastructure projects in more efficient less democratic and less sensitive ways than the state ever can. All they ask of politicians is to generate an environment of political chaos for them to be able to build a global corporate aristocracy and slave armies from.
With right wing provocateurs herding people into reactionary xenophobes and left wing provocateurs herding people into a tribe of harmless gender free vegans, the only thing that matters to the corporate leaders is the destabilisation of the political middle ground which leaves a lot of people who don't fit into either extremist group finding it hard to find their feet. That serves the corpocracy well- lost and confused people like to sedate the anxiety of being detached by either joining an extremist political group and driving further chaos or developing a shopping addiction or by climbing a corporate ladder/ running on one of the corporate tread mills/hamster wheels.
Happy days all round for the corporate leaders.
Despite the blindingly obvious chaos and incompetence of our political system there is still no serious challenge on the real seat of modern power ( corporate power) from the general population or a call for a political system that pulls the global aristocracy into an accountable system where the democratic system is modernised. Until that happens, the rich will just keep getting richer, the poor poorer, nature will continue to be obliterated, corporate power will grow, the slave armies will swell, species extinctions will escalate, climate chaos will intensify and we will edge closer and closer to our next evolutionary precipice that will forge a more sustainable system.
