I don’t know about you, but I kinda react negatively to being abused, duped or defrauded!
But look at the majority of voters all around the EU – they voted conservatives into the EU parliament.
People must be quite stupid and „blessed“ with an unbelievably short political memory. Those neo-conservatives having been voted into office are the cause of the current economic slump. With them it’s always about „deregulation“, „less red tape“, „less intrusion of the state and government“ – all shorthand for „don’t make it harder for me to shaft everybody else and get rich quick!“.
We need less of this US-style worshipping of „efficiency“ and self-interest of a few, and get back to more control in the banking and stock market sectors. And back to a more socially responsible economy.
