Personally I am always highly aware that a small but still significant proportion of people are pretty clever but actually useless or insanely lazy at doing what they are supposed to do."The Socialist Party will present the truth “in the way which is most digestible to the working class at a particular time”, TD Paul Murphy has said.
In internal documents discussing Brexit and wider strategy, he asks: “Are we guilty of not ‘telling the truth’ to the working class when we don’t bring a demand to leave the EU?
“We always tell the truth to the working class. But we present the truth in the way which is most digestible to the working class at a particular time.”"
Inside Ireland’s Socialist Party: telling the ‘digestible’ truth - Irish Times
It's strange to say because it doesn't seem to make sense but the Irish Socialist parties are Unionist parties - not in the sense of nostalgia for the British Empire but as a means to unite the Proletariat of the British Isles in one system with them being the agents of the "revolution" in Ireland.
They engage in something called agitprop - or agitational propaganda - which is basically using any means to stoke up anger and resentment to get people to throw enough spanners in the works to collapse the system so they can grab power.
They will use any methods to bring about this collapse because of the justification created by how wicked they cast the image of those frustrating their will to power. They are liars without shame. It's just important to understand this when reading or listening to them.
They're not operating by the established or commonsense rules of co-operation or competition - they operate by ideological ones. Their advantage is the gap between what they will do and what you think the bounds of conduct are. Other than that they'll substantially useless which is why whenever they have an upper hand everything always ends in tears and hardship.
Anyway, as for Brexit, we can file it for a while. Either there'll be a Brexit according to the Withdrawal Agreement or with a Customs Union or none at all. The key learning point is the decline of quality within the political system in Britain brought about by negative selection and undisciplined unethical behaviour.
Negative selection is when you put someone into a position that they're unable to fill it and who, as a consequence, relies on squeezing those reporting to them to keep the function running. Teaming breaks down and the shafting game takes over. It acts contrary to meritocracy and has a whole body of observational behavioural traits that don't yet seem to be recorded in a way that's generally available.
This affects your life, whether you're able to recognise it or not, so you keep an eye open for it. Be fair and honest to all but don't be a coward by being bullied into wrongly apportioning good faith to everyone claiming your help. If you give into to it you may get relief from discomfort for a moment but it'll inevitably drag you down into a circle of hell and you will lose yourself.
Once your spirit is broken you'll just spend all your time and energy whining or preying on other people in an effort to get them to fix your inconveniences and realise your fantasies for you rather than looking for opportunities to reply to your challenges and realise your ambitions for yourself.
Bizarrely the same people are often to be found in positions of power and wealth chiefly because they're so good at lying.
