It’s such a strange time right now due to COVID-19 and so soon after Brexit in the UK.
It’s so hard for me to accept, so many people who can remember what the tories have done to poor people over the years. And still, they voted the tories in, with such a large majority too!
I’m someone from an impoverished background, who has managed to clamber up the social status and class divides and is now in a position of comfort.
It’s tough for me to accept that there are a lot of low paid manual type workers, who don’t understand business and the skills used in marketing. If they did, they would see how the government and the successful, produce a lot of marketing to influence large sways of the population.
Such as, when people are marketed towards and persuaded to buy certain products and seduced with slick adverts. The same tools are being used in politics to influence people into voting one way of the other.
From the very day, poor people are born; they are ‘gaslighted’ into thinking a certain way and socially engineered to provoke specific actions.
For example, this year, while everyone was talking about COVID-19 and Brexit, our right-wing government slipped in a ban that no left-wing books should be available at our schools.
It’s so important the next generation realise that there’s a lot of different views out there, on things that matter. If our youth have a balanced education, they are more likely to have a balanced opinion on things.
And before you think I’m talking about politics and whether you should become a socialist or libertarian, I’m not, I’m talking about the environment and all of its problems.
If we’re determined to fix the world and its environmental problems, then we need to raise a population, who have a well-rounded education. That isn’t solely focused on money.
COVID-19 in my eyes is a blessing, as it gives our world some time to rest and rejuvenate. I’m aware that it’s easy for me to say this, as I haven’t got the threat of becoming homeless anytime soon. But I do think; it’s down to getting the masses educated, for us all to have a better future.
