Why Can’t the Ruling Class Trust the People? — The BFD

“Nudge theory” is the idea that the hoi polloi are too stupid to be left to their own devices so it’s up to their “betters” to herd them with carrots and sticks.

I Don’t Think They’re Listening, Jacinda — The BFD

As BFD readers will be aware, PM Jacinda Ardern recently implored the Taliban to respect women. Her government also forked out a cool few million in taxpayers’ money to Afghanistan.
