The election is a regular thing that modern societies try to emulate the old. In traditional societies, everybody sit around and each has a chance to speak their minds, in between drinks and food and smoke. The atmosphere is general genial, but once in a while, someone may have drunk too much, or ate too much or smoke too much, and goes into a trance state and start talking in strange language and making strange sounds. Otherwise, everyone would have emptied themselves and eventually everybody agreed and the meeting is over. Life goes on.
But in the modern day and age, attempts are made to influence others and to persuade or even coerce others to accept your views. When our views are not heard or are not the majority view, we become upset and throw tantrums. We demand that things should be done right, as if being right means that our views will prevail.
It is quite impossible to obtain consensus. Not everybody will agree with everybody every time. In a close society, social manner calls for us to be polite. In the modern social media work, we are not intimately known to each other although we try to connect. We may become less concern with politeness, when we then tend towards rudeness, as if rudeness is indicative of truth.
The world, alas, is not perfect. Although we wish for one that is, and even pray for it, we are unfortunately stuck with our feet in the mud. We live with life's imperfections.
The one thing we think we can fix is the economy. There are economic experts. They know theories and they run econometric models.
But the modern economy is an artificial construct. The modern economy is a matrix and we are all caught in the web. Being entangled is no fun. We can't extricate ourselves.
But we keep on trying. We try new things. We try new leaders. We do not want to be dictated by some persons or some groups who seem to be able to get away by entrapping us.
