A health warning goes with this post. Before reading the link you need to be calm, your blood pressure low. Do your yoga breathing or something. Because you could very well get angry.
It's an "interview" with Iain Duncan Smith. It's from The House magazine, the MPs' own journal, and it's not an interview at all, just a chance for IDS to spout, unchallenged, his version of reality. You need to consider not just the obvious divergence from truth, about sanctions and food banks and so forth. You need to think about the mental processes which lead a man into believing he knows better than all the voices raised against him. Here it is.
Okay? I'm not going to dissect the article; it would be too long a task. But I will pick out one sentence: “But it’s also important that you do that by reforming the system so that those who are in the system are essentially rewarded for the right behaviour and no longer does the system perversely reward behaviour that is destructive." "The system"; you thought social security was about state help when you needed it. But no. It's about rewarding "right behaviour" (as defined by who?) and not "behaviour that is destructive".
This article oozes contempt for everyone who does not agree with him, including the leaders of his own church. There is only one acceptable version of truth, whether it be on food banks (who apparently have an empire to build) or on sanctions (since he's been into a jobcentre he knows that the whistle-blowers and their clients are making it up) and nothing will sway his opinions.
I'm sorry to inflict this on you on a sunny weekend. But this is a man whose delusions are harming millions.
