A ma­te­rial view of the world

Cynon Valley - - YOUR VIEWS -

CON­SER­VA­TIVE un­der­stand­ing of hu­man life is con­fined wholly to money and pos­ses­sions.

Lis­ten to them speak: the mind can­not stray far. In Tory eyes it is not pos­si­ble for one per­son to have too much money mea­sured in mil­lions of mil­lions, for no good rea­son what­so­ever. And it is quite ac­cept­able and agree­able to the Tory that some cit­i­zens of their na­tion, which is also our na­tion, shall own noth­ing at all, from cra­dle to grave.

Even when the un­em­ployed cit­i­zen has very lit­tle, the in­stinct of the Tory is to “sanc­tion” him to be pen­ni­less in or­der to mo­ti­vate him, in stark con­trast to their cho­sen method of coax­ing bank di­rec­tors to do the job, by brib­ing them with ex­tra bonuses.

Tories de­spise poor for­eign­ers seek­ing to work in our fields, but show adu­la­tion to Rus­sian moguls who have stolen bil­lions from their fel­low na­tion­als, to bring the loot far from the reach of Rus­sian jus­tice.

Do Tory vot­ers re­alise that this is how they are re­garded by many of their fel­low na­tion­als, as peo­ple who have cho­sen to dis­card their own hu­man­ity? Neville Wester­man Brynna
