Serfdom is making a big comeback these days. It never really went out of style, of course, but it’s remarkable how many people are now willing to submit to government authority without question, or without much in the way of expectations. Shoddy performance, from fiscal insolvency to a moribund economy, is no cause for outrage among the modern serfs. They accept the “New Normal” without question, believing they live in the best of all possible worlds, because it’s now about five years removed from the worst.
.
That’s an important principle for the serf to accept: Success is measured by the suffering of your enemies.  It doesn’t matter if your taxes go up, provided some hated rich guy’s taxes go up more. It doesn’t matter if the economy is weak, provided “income inequality” is under attack. Daily life is a means toward the end of elections. Any dissatisfaction you might feel with your political leadership is easily re-directed against their opponents. This keeps the bar set nice and low for the leadership of your team. Who cares if you’re hurting, as long as bad people are hurting worse?
