Whilst politics veers to the extremes the institutions people rely on continue to decay putting us all in danger

It feels like in western democracy, politics, the media & the legal system are broken. Maybe not completely broken. But partially broken (And obviously it varies by country). Ordinary people get caught in the wheels of these institutions. 

Instead of a reform agenda we get shock politics, swings to extreme right and left and a fiery public debate. More people’s lives are going to be ruined in big and small ways because the body politic is not functioning.

I am not prescribing an ideology or policies.

Maybe some people think liberal democracy was so corrupt it needs to be ripped down something new can emerge. 

That’s kind of Bolshevik thinking.

I’m just observing that whilst liberal institutions rot people suffer.

While politics is in stalemate we should help each other?
