Yes, Very true indeed.
It seems like that people are getting more and more detached from the politicians and their practice, AND!! politicians are getting more more detached from the general public, And practically running their own business/show.
Let's just take my country as an example : Before the digital revolution (Nearly everything is digitalized in Denmark) People showed up physically in protest and demanded change if they felt something was wrong. And we still complain, But now wer'e hiding behind our monitors while yapping away at everything.
Somewhere between the lines we've gotten disconnected (While wer'e yapping on Facebook and other social media), From our dear politicians that's so far away, Somehow im actually thinking they've given up while a thunderstorm of angry facebookers, Instagrammers, Snapchatters, Redditer's accusing them for everything from A-Z (If they take 2 misteps it's Aaaaaaaaaaarrrgh reeeeeeeeeeee) What a bunch of filthy crooks.
Does the digital platform work for solving political issues??, I really really don't think it does.
We need to turn off our monitors and show up at political meetings and confront them with our very presence and have an actual debate face to face.
Were being bombarded with news everyday on the net so no one knows what's up and what's down anymore, Some think's Mr trump is trying to save the US while other's think that Hillary is the incarnation of the devil (666), All of us with our very own ecco-chambers and our self-induced truth, No one even bothers checking up what's the actual facts (And it's also nearly impossible knowing).
We need a revolution, But we need to show up ourselves (User-names dosn't work)
