Hello, I live in Spain but I'm originally from Romania. I'm interested in some political and economic debates. My view is that ideologies are nothing else than distractions - useful tools for the rich to divide and rule over the poor, who enter into an "ists" group and who are competing with the other groups of "ists" (socialists, communists, capitalists etc). That keeps them distracted while the rich are looting the economy. In my view, the universal constant in politics is the people entering politics in order to fill their pockets. So when they get in power, they take the money from the poor and they give it to the rich. More taxes for the poor, less taxes for the rich. Then they get a few coins from the rich, in exchange for doing a good job. Especially today, those "people" stay in line to become the next pet politicians of the super-rich. This is where I start from, I hope to have interesting debates here and to learn as much as possible.
