    yeah, it is a conspiracy theory.

    people like you are the reason liberals keep losing elections. you're incapable of looking inwards critically and assessing why your messages don't resonate. it's all the fault of an nefarious hidden enemy.

    'subsidised international movement of labour is good for the economy. identity politics is more important than whether you have a job or whether the pay keeps up with the real rate of inflation'

    That's the message the working class hear on both sides of the atlantic from establishment liberals and they fucking hate it.

    as opposed to the never ending exaggerations of Regan and Thatcher's backwards economics we hear from the right.

    the conversation is inevitably about who is eating who's lunch. the left never stopped saying it's the rich, and the right has recently had to switch out the tax man because after 30 years the working man isn't really buying it any more. and there are geo political actors who are encouraging the new lunch eater.

    Thatcher and Reagan were right most of the time about economics, its just uncomfortable for you to process because it flies in the face of 'everybody deserves a prize' mentality.

    I'm willing to accept that they maybe had the right ideas at the time, but we aren't working on their ideas, we are working on their ideas*X^y.


    if you tried to reinstate Every Thatcher policy what party would you find yourself in?

    The Brexit Party in the UK has an economic policy closer to hers than the modern Tory party does. Public spending will probably continue to increase at a moderare pace over the next few years, it just wont gallop away into dangerous levels of public debt and bankruptcy-causing tax increases like it would have under Corbyn.

    There is something to be said for that Hayekian economics & Rand's critique of socialism but I find the social fall out unpalatable.

    If you're looking at the social problems in the US as a critique of small government, I think it's misplaced. The US has a relatively high overall tax take, it just spends a lot on defence. Switzerland & Singapore would be better comparisons I think.

    Singapore has an authoritarian government when it comes to social freedoms.

    Switzerland I can get on board with. Much more in the way of direct democracy & devolved areas.
