Seduced and Betrayed by Donald Trump

By Paul Krugman, Dec. 2 2016 (LINK to article)
"the white working class is about to be betrayed."
You are probably right, Paul. But whoever is in power invariably betrays the majority of those who elected them. Your own side is no better, although, of course, you cannot see this.

As an inherently tribal animal, our brains evolved to be blindly loyal to its own tribe, which made sense when tribes were real, before being replaced by the state, which is not a genuine tribe or nation at all, but merely poses as such, in order to lay claim to our tribal loyalty, thereby legitimising itself, its ruling elites and the immense power they wield and abuse.

And it is not just the "white working class" that is being betrayed. Blacks are betrayed even more, despite all the Democrats claims to be their champions. Ultimately EVERYONE is betrayed by the STATE, the primary purpose of which is to facilitate society's SELF-exploitation (and self-betrayal), to the personal advantage of its ruling elites and favoured (especially wealthy and academic/formerly priestly) clients, at the expense of society at large and its long-term survival.

This is why civilisation itself (not just particular economies) are bound to a cycle of boom and bust, which ultimately leads to their demise.

Academics' own tribal loyalties blind them to this, making it impossible for social and political scientists to develop a realistic understanding what are supposed to be their subjects of expertise.
