I try to work on systems to provide ways for citizens to have a better understanding of politicians (through AI & etc.) and for them to better understand issues and to understand themselves better, but again and again, the real problem which raises its massive head is that right wingers do not want to understand or help solve problems, they are only acting out of their emotions of fear of ‘others’ and of love for symbols, most particularly ‘freedom’ as long as its freedom to protect oneself from others or to belong to a symbol group such as a country, ‘military’ but not actual people with whom they do not share ‘roots’.
In Britain and in the US many of these people are angry because they feel the ‘liberal’ elite have taken their ‘liberty’ so they vote for outsiders to give them back this liberty but all these outsiders promise is to protect them from those who are slightly different and to reduce the size of their most powerful resource; government.
Is the only way to deal with this a massive revolution is social care and education for future generation (which the current generation would hate, as hand-outs are for the weak and education just breeds liberals…)? If so, how do we do that and if not, what else can we do?
