“Emancipate yourself from mental slavery. None but ourselves can free our mind.” Bob Marley
The Careful Erosion Once, the beast was contained in civility and the piety of naivety which held the line against fearful things potentially foisted on us all by the well-meaning midwives of decay, who carelessly fling open the overton to the highest bidders of necrotising freedom, and thereby, we fall for all the carefully manicured spiracies birthing our nightmares, while never noticing the careful erosion of what it means to be human, to be a person, inviolable, and where we descend into a catabolic, zombie existence, all the time believing it is for our own good.

The theory accepts that politicians are limited in what policy decisions they can support and that policy decisions that are not generally accepted will cost support for the politicians if they choose to pursue them.
