There is so much crap out there but people don’t see it, or they see this little pile over here but not the great steaming heap in their back yard. Even humongous piles of crap fade into the background when those who do not know, do not know themselves. We cannot see what we cannot see because we cannot see ourselves not seeing it.
Or maybe not. Perhaps we see ourselves more clearly now social media are such an important aspect of our lives. If so then the future may be much brighter than we tend to assume. We may be learning to know ourselves better than the political classes assume and the consequences of that could be profound indeed. Brexit may be more than an isolated victory.
