Fracking politicians (1)

Have they become so dumb, so deaf, so blind, so hopelessly unfeeling, so caught up in petty squabbles if not bloody skirmishes, wary of friends and foes alike, so enamoured of their own words that they are ensnared in their own bullshit, so worried about sinking ratings, their eyes riveted on opinion polls and the rumblings of social media, so pressured by lobbyists slipping white-washed cheques in wide open pockets, so engrossed in engineering an endearing  and enduring image, so faithful to their ideology while enslaved by procedures and rules and the status quo, so afraid of being singled out, caught with unclean fingers straying where they shouldn’t go, so obsequiously obedient to their party line, so bound to the glorious market place that promises to save those who save themselves, … that they have forgotten they are human beings and neglect the welfare of the world and the people who live in it?

(1) Yes. I know. There are a good many politicians that fight for a more humane and caring world… This text is about the dominant crowd that don’t.
