How To Lose A Country: The New Political Ice Age

Short thesis

Throughout 1980s our collective political memory has been erased and the humanity was politically infantilised. The masses were taught to be helpless in the face of political decisions. The new rising right-wing populism came at this moment where the political actors were transformed into passive audiences of dominant economic and political narrative. The cure to our age is to remember the times when were able political agents who are capable of changing the political currents. We have to remember the entire story of recent decades to be able to break the pattern in today's world and remind ourselves our moral and philosophical strength.
