    Default Has The Awakening Begun?

    Is the world starting to awaken (thanks to the internet), evidenced by the rise of such non-mainstream political leadership candidates as Bernie Sanders (USA), Jeremy Corbyn (UK), and David Leyonhjelm (Australia) ?

    Even with Trump; i'd rather an entertaining puppet than a boring one.

    Some say they are all controlled opposition, and even if they are, how about we, as a population see whether we are able to vote for the best of the puppets before we consider a vote for real leaders!

    I think he was reading the Leyonhjelm twitter feed.
    Reminds me of a disturbed ants nest.

    Ah, as i suspected; completely irrelevant to the initial post in this thread. Are you trolling me?
    Now put that bloody mugga chino down and celebrate the rise of Bernie Sanders and Jeremy Corbyn! (We'll leave Leyonhjelm to one side for the moment. Knowing your deep affection for the nanny state )

    Though if it's trolling that's your bag you might like this: http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news...rebar_facebook

    DONALD TRUMP




    In Oz, we elect a leader with an expected shelf life of about 1 to 2 years
    Rudd, Gillard, Rudd, Nelson, Turnbull, Abbott, Turnbull.
    We have a safety net that if they are not up to the job then we change.

    But 4 years of Donald Trump without any safety net.

    To quote Tony "Australia, we are better than that".

    In your first post the emphasis was on non-mainstream
    <Is the world starting to awaken (thanks to the internet), evidenced by the rise of such non-mainstream political leadership candidates as Bernie Sanders (USA), Jeremy Corbyn (UK), and David Leyonhjelm (Australia) ?>

    But then you appeared to change the emphasis down to entertaining.
    <Even with Trump; i'd rather an entertaining puppet than a boring one.>

    Ronald Regan was an entertainer and that is not a new awakening.

    So which emphasis do you want this thread to address?
    Non-mainstream?
    Or, Entertaining?

    Well, it is a safety-net in the sense that incompetence is sensed by the electorate through opinion polls and the incumbent gets bumped off the perch in much less than the 4 years of the USA Presidential term.

    A safety-net that works. A 5 year-old Aussie has now had 4 PMs.

    You are quite correct to highlight my sloppy expression there. I should have put the Trump line in brackets, as i meant it as an aside.
    Though i could maintain this was still an awakening of sorts with Trump being a straight-talking unvarnished relatively honest communicator from a non political class background. Perhaps another sign the electorate is fed up with the standard fare.

    However i probably should retract my statement as i find it very difficult to call anyone entertaining that makes a comment such as this:

    “I think Snowden is a terrible threat, I think he’s a terrible traitor, and you know what we used to do in the good old days when we were a strong country — you know what we used to do to traitors, right?” Trump

    Although those with similar sentiments would no doubt find that refreshingly frank or perhaps entertaining.


    Reagan may have been in showbiz but would you really say he was entertaining in his political role? To me it seemed like he was acting the role of a boring cue card reading politician.

    Though a safety net implies that it actually saves. My point was that replacing like for like is really no saving at all. But still, you are right in the sense that a different person takes over the role.

    Default 1st criteria: Fit for purpose. 2nd criteria: Can he/she lead. 3rd criteria: Can they sing and dance.

    I think I was in general agreement with your very first sentence:

    Is the world starting to awaken (thanks to the internet), evidenced by the rise of such non-mainstream political leadership candidates as Bernie Sanders (USA), Jeremy Corbyn (UK), and David Leyonhjelm (Australia) ?
    because I interpreted non-mainstream to be a reference to the emergence of articulators who are obviously aided by the internet.

    Articulators are not always good decision managers, and need to be filtered from office if they cannot display competency over time.
    A two year filter is better than a 4-year-filter.

    Hence my first reaction was

    DONALD TRUMP
