Politicians Don't Care About You. Why Do You Forget?

All over the world, citizens complain about politicians and their lack of honor. Leadership has been corrupted and now politics is a career. In Africa, politics is the way out for both the politician and his cronies. Therefore, it has become a game of 'do whatever it takes' and once you are in 'take whatever you can'.

By leveraging on a weakness we all have as humans, we are sinking deeper into the rabbit hole. According to Wikipedia, normalization refers to social processes through which ideas and actions come to be seen as 'normal' and become taken-for-granted or 'natural' in everyday life. 

We have normalized violence.
We have normalized corruption and insecurity.
We have normalized tribalism.
We have normalized indiscipline.

Ask anyone around you and they will say, 'At least we are the best economy in the region'.
They are proud to be the fastest runner in Nairobi and they forget there are faster runners in Ethiopia, in the world and elsewhere.
They limit themselves to the narrow scope that they are in.
Of course, there are good things happening around you but should you ignore the bad and call it 'normal'.
Ten years ago, billions disappearing from public coffers was unheard of and now it's normal?
We have slowly been numbed to the evil that is happening around us.
We have been made to accept and move on.
We have made to forget.
Why do you forget?
