Those on the Left in power think they can rig the game so they get the benefit but pull it back from the brink before they have to suffer.
Those on the Left out of power are taking advantage to get what they can and damm the consequences, or even as you say encourage the destruction.
Those on the Right in power think they can play nice with the Left in power to share the benefits.
That leaves those of us on the Right without power to see it all coming, and yet not see a solution. Election of Right Minded people is rarely possible now and even if we do so, they get corrupted so fast we make no sustainable gains.
So what is the solution? Join the band in playing while the ship sinks?
