RobAtPaxMondeo275345dAt first, I thought "Is this the place for politics?"
And then it occurred to me that if the world was run by developers, it would totally open-source, with the general aim of it making it more user friendly for everybody.
The problem is that the people who are attracted to positions of power are those who are hungry for power itself, and have no interest in the general good.
Douglas Adams hit the nail on the head when he had Zaphod Beeblebrox running around drawing all the attention pretending to be president, when in actual fact, behind the scenes the galaxy was being run by someone else. And the only qualification for that job was that you *didn't* want to do it.
SortOfTested24503345dItalian politics is hella difficult to follow.
The US is at least mercifully simple in that we vote for douchebag or turd sandwich and it's all zero sum.
RobAtPaxMondeo275345dIf only there was a country where we could all live that was run properly by people who cared about what they were doing.
Oh wait, there is.
Its called New Zealand.

Stuxnet63701345dDuring the 2016 election season, I got "into it" around February. I lasted untill about 2 weeks after the election before I was like "fuck this shit" and started blocking everything out.
It's hella interesting, that's for sure. But I cared too much and it always left me angry after tryna talk to people who disagreed because in today's day and age, people are fucking retarded and both sides suck balls in multiple areas.
