Brass Knuckles and Winning

Or, what politics is really about.
3

Are ideas overrated?

Shadi’s recent column (and controversial tweet) exploring the reasons behind Trump’s popularity launches a discussion about what exactly drives politics. Are politicians motivated by winning more than ideology? Do voters respond to strong personalities, rather than policies and promises?

As expected, Damir makes a case for “materialism” over ideas. Shadi isn’t totally convinced.
