election … again
… and the alternatives are‥?
Only weeks away from national election here in Norway, and no way to differentiate between the parties on a political level except in how fast they plan to drain our country of resources for zero national gain. Impressive how so few can get away with inflicting so much damage onto so many, quietly and by “legal” means, under a hollowed-out cover of “democracy”.
too much damage done already…
From my point of view, our governing bodies have misinterpreted and mishandled just about everything possible
and imaginable for decades, and especially bad since last we voted for and got some changes
back in 2013.
That we also had an election in 2017 did not help the slightest on the quality at the top, so we may as well forget we even bothered to vote that last time.
Now – in September 2021 – we are supposed to vote again, with even less chance of finding sensible and electable candidates on those lists than before. Based on their actual governing up until now, the various kakistocratic parties in Norway differ only in how quickly they intend to “kill off” their own countrymen.
who to vote for, and why?
Good questions, but one is unlikely to receive sensible answers beyond the by now pretty standard ones with references to democracy, old party-associations, and other such factors that have lost all relevance and meaning ages ago. No-one in their right mind believes in any of that old nonsense anymore – if anyone ever did, although many pretend to and those in lead want us to.
The political games will go on regardless, so we may as well waste a couple of hours every fourth year on “doing our duty” as members of a society that few with an IQ above 85 will dare to define with somewhat meaningful words unless they are cracking jokes.
One may call the various parties whatever one likes, as it is unlikely to even sound close to reality no matter
what. The left'ists are so far over to the right that they are almost falling off those artificial
political platforms, the right'ists are found somewhere between the outermost left and right
political limits, and those who supposedly should be found in the middle are all over the place and beyond.
In short: it's a mess.
(14.sep.2021) Election 2021 over, and nearly all votes counted as I write this. Not surprisingly we have a new political majority consisting of traditional center-left parties, that, at least on paper, should be able to form a functioning government in Norway for the next four years. Looks like a slight improvement over what we had, but I am not overly optimistic.
