Politicians are within that hatred group who they always yell about – the hated “rich”. In Ireland, they earn over €130,000 when the “rich” defined as the top 1% begins with people earning $100,000 or more. Now, the Irish have become outraged how politicians exempted themselves from paying water bills for a second home. You just can’t make up this stuff.
This is why I say FIRMLY there should not be any career politicians for then the incentives all change. They not merely look for their own self-interest that make them susceptible to bribes though vacations and other favors, but they then become focused only on winning the next election and the long-term planning for the country vanishes. This leads society into simply crisis management from one event to the next.
