Could it be that people's claim to distrust politicians is, to some extent, mere cheap talk? People say what they are expected to say. They want to conform to the bar-room cliches that politicians are all in it for themselves and that they are canny enough to see through their lies. But in fact, this is just talk, and more people behave as if they trust politicians than actually say they do.Na ja. Ich weiss nicht ob mehr Vertrauen in die Politik haben, als sie zugeben. Ich könnte mir das umgekehrte auch vorstellen. Aber den letzten Satz des lesenswerten Beitrags kann ich jedenfalls unterschreiben:
All I'm saying is that it's not just politicians I distrust. It's the voters as well.
