Energy and mortgages are almost three times more expensive, some foods are twice as expensive, the prices of services, medicines and actually everything naturally start to rise in an inflationary spiral thanks to energy. What is happening is completely unprecedented.
And I've been asking myself and the people around me for almost a year now, how is it possible that after such an increase in the price of everything, people are not still on the streets.
But the shops are still full of smiling and shopping people - everyone seems happy. Are big cities really that different from smaller ones and the countryside?
How does a single woman or a pensioner who paid 60,000 a year for gas and now should pay 180,000 for a house where he lived all his life deal with it?
It is possible that people really naively believed the government and financiers, that it's "just temporary", let them grit their teeth, maybe borrow and that soon it will be fine again?
Are people ashamed to admit to themselves and friends that they are at their wits end? Is it just the calm before the storm? The last solo on the Titanic?
I understand that many don't have the strength to go anywhere anymore and they've had enough of everything after two years of bullshitting, but how is it possible that they will AGAIN elect those (and their supporters) who caused and continue to cause all this?
And to make matters worse, the Government is already preparing to raise taxes - both income and consumption...
And people still nothing…
Do the people really VOLUNTARILY, and especially REPEATEDLY, naively choose the fireman who has set fire to their house MANY TIMES? Are people really that masochistic?
