What is a treasure that’s been lost?

Compromise has seemingly been lost.

Footballification is a term coined by radio presenter James O’brien to describe the way that the blind, unquestioning loyalty of football fans has been transferred to political figures & parties. This footballification leads to absolute belief in our political beliefs, and our favourite politicians, for example, the Brexit referendum, Boris Johnson or Donald Trump.

People have an unwavering political belief and maybe love of a particular politician that they are unable to talk rationally and come to a compromise with the other side of the argument to benefit society as a whole.

The media, both online & offline have to lot to answer for in the way they have chosen sides & amplified the messages to almost brainwash people.

Cough, Cough, Brexit

However, I believe that people in time will come to their senses and realise that they are being manipulated and compromise will no longer be lost.

Take care
