Three of the guests. A very challenging position on an important issue. And Jan Leyers. With the ingredients and try to Watch clarity and exits to be found in the midst of the flood of issues and opinions that we have today about the us going to get it. In this episode, it’s the question of whether the politicians of today are actually the ones with the power to do something to fundamentally change our socio-economic system.
For the philosopher, Thomas Decreus, it is in politics today is little more than a show that allows politicians to make us believe that they are able to change it. The real power is with corporations, institutions, and conventions. Therefore, politicians more and more actors in the media, a show up, pretend to represent us, and that our emotions play. “The new politician, it is a Trumpist.” Decreus is going to be in a debate with the political scientist Carl Devos, and Jolene Paeleman of Extinction patrick’s day celebration.

Since the advent of social media, the focus will be on conflict and sensationalism, much more so now. In such an environment, it needs a new kind of politician: the Trumpist. A true ideology is, as a politician, worst of all, he is blowing rather have the wind for his popularity to increase. The Trumpist it’s all about style and raw emotion in place of reasoning, was, in the place of dialogue.
