Dominic Cummings and the Anxiety of Power... short read ->

People hate hypocrisy. And lying. Hypocrites and liars undermine much of normal social life and society in general. Especially in lockdown. When we all have to obey the rules. Or die.

So when a hypocrite and liar in power is exposed, you firstly hope they get called out. And when they are, you hope they admit it. They apologise. And they resign.

What you perhaps don’t expect is the entire fucking Government machinery to whirl into action defending the fucking indefensible. Circle the wagons. Protect the hypocrite. Protect the liar.

But then that’s the anxiety of power.

If you take down one of them, then who among them are safe?

Close ranks. Protect the liar.
