Having "faith" in a politician is a sad sign of a passivity which, as history teaches us, leads all too often to disaster.

Replace the word “faith” with “confidence”. Is that any better?

In any case we don’t have much choice; they’re the ones with the power to do what is required. We can’t fight this as rugged individualists can we?

You raise an excellent issue: alas, what I derive from your opinion is that it is useless for individuals to band together and seek change in society.  Correct?

 

If the likes of Mao or Ho Chi Minh and all the revolutionaries of history had held this view  their particular slave societies would never have progressed.  (Leave aside for one moment the natural inclination of the average American to view those names as the ultimate anathema).

But at home (in the USA) one could argue that Martin Luther King would never have gotten anywhere with the passive view that resisting one's government is impossible.

 

(Needless to say, "resistance' does not consist of coming on to ThaiVisa and virtue-signalling one's hatred of the POTUS!!!)
