I’ve tried. I really have tried.

I just don’t believe any of them.

When I look around, here’s what I think people really believe in.

Popularity debates.
The ability to stand up to Paxman.
Being able to complete a coherent sentence.
Wearing the right tie.
Wearing the wrong shoes.
Physical appearance.
Pithy retorts.
Media hype.
Slander.
Handshakes.
Greed.
Blame.
Blaming someone else.
Entitlement.
Tribes.
Flags.
Segregation.
Inequality.
Right.
Left.

People believe in these things because this really is politics. This is what it amounts to. A popularity contest.

Who needs to fix the issues affecting society when you can play a game like this.

I really have tried.

I just don’t believe any of them and I don’t want to play the game any longer.
