Quote of the Day

People ignore experts because the experts have been systematically misleading them about what the benefits of policies are likely to be.
Sandwichman at Angry Bear
He is talking about how various "experts" are perplexed by the fact that a majority of the voters in the UK ignored them and voted for Brexit.

As he notes, the experts for years have been saying that structures can be established for the winners to support the losers, but the policies they support not only make 90% of the population worse off, but it diminishes the political, economic, and, social power of the bottom 90%, which means a withdrawal of support.

This leads to more policies that disadvantage a majority of the population, further increase the power and wealth of the elites.

Rinse, lather, repeat.
