I agree with the video in that politicians and rich people who own and run the mass media control us and what we think. However I do not agree with the ‘Leftist’ idea that the State is good has every right to tax us, to grow in power and to manage us. The State is a robber.
The State is the arm of the rich, it helps them to gain control and to live off the rest of us. The idea that if the popular will wants its taxes to be spent on Health the politicians will comply or ought to comply is based on the assumption that Democracy works, if only we take the ‘bad politicians’ out of politics.
In actual fact, the system itself is designed to make people who get voted into parliament behave in that way, it cannot be improved and hoping that it it can is a fools game.
