“The economy is on a downswing.”
“Raise the volumes on terrorism.”
“We are meeting the Finance Minister today, not the Home Minister.”
“I know that. Divert public attention before we think about corrective measures.”
“Unemployment threatens to reach astronomical proportions.”
“Engage the unemployed youth in discussions about national identity. All symbols are to be held sacred – national birds, animals and flags. Those who do not fall in line are to be castigated as traitors.”
And this is how we reached wherever we are today. Don’t blame the leaders. You chose to follow them wherever you were led, without asking questions.
