In his weekly monologue today, Neil Oliver discusses the strutting peacocks at Davos who think they are masters of the universe controlling the outcomes of the sheeple masses beneath them. However, as Oliver also notes, only the brainless frogs will sit in the pot – the rest of us, but far the majority, have no time for these insufferable schemes and dictates.
The pretense of the Potemkin village can only be maintained so long as good, moral and virtuous people extend the graciousness of patience and play along with the pretending. Whether the Davos crowd want to admit it or not, the ranks of the grace-filled are diminishing, and the ranks of the vulgarian hoard are swelling. We are all becoming increasingly hardened, deliberate and refusing to pretend. The control mechanisms are starting to falter, as the messaging hits deaf ears.
