The government is trash at getting things done. The only government that will actually get things done is a progressive government. But, a progressive government is far from likely, so the only thing that will happen, is whatever rich people want to happen.
Government officials aren't rich. They need money fro campaign, projects, and others things. Where do they get the money? Rich people. Most major politicians have rich personal donors (George Soros), or large corporations (NRA). These people and corporations can literally affect an entire country.
Take the NRA for example.
Guns are bad, and in America, guns are terrible. So why aren't there serious regulations and major steps taken to deal with them? Cause the NRA spends literal millions
of dollars buying the politicians (NRA spending
). In 2016, the NRA spent $54 million to secure Republican control
Let's take a look at George Soros (this is my theory and could possibly be false, so don't take my word for it).
Soros is a rich rich guy. He has connections to Wall Street. He makes money off American companies' success. When Canadian companies do good, American companies do bad, so he hates Canadian companies.
Canada is rich in oil sands. If we export it, we can potentially because very rich off of it, and potentially overshadow American oil companies. We can export it through the expansion of the pipeline.
So Soros (and the rest of Wall Street) hates the pipeline. Who else hates pipelines? Liberals (well, they don't hate pipelines, but they won't develop them as much as the other parties). And it turns out, the Canadian Federal Election is coming up. Huh, interesting...
Soros paid huge sums of money to make the Liberals win. And that's not all. He also wanted to win the people - to make them hate pipelines. And who hates pipelines (well, climate change actually, but they are related)?
Why only weeks before the election, did Greta come to Canada? Why didn't see go to the Arctic to support polar bears?
Cause George Soros sponsored Greta's trip to Canada, swaying the minds of millions.
Greta claims that her "parents pay for tickets and accommodations." I claim that's bullshit.
Because of this, George Soros (and the rest of Wall Street) can continue grow his $8 billion wealth.
So it's not the protesters like Greta that make a difference, it's the billionaires that do.
