I don’t hate politics but I’ve heard a lot of people use that phrase as a response to any mention of the word “politics”, writes the Cat.
The other phrase I often hear is “I’m not interested in politics” or “I’m apolitical’. So these people have no opinion on anything? Is this what they’re trying to say?
For today’s postmodern politicians, these words are a godsend. Legions of politically disinterested people, who avert their eyes from what’s happening in the world or in their locale, give our imperial masters the space to behave like feudal overlords. Are you happy with that?
For the rest of this article – which includes some extremely direct comments about the kind of people who can’t be bothered with politics – visit Guy Debord’s Cat.
