Being a Community Educator is my day job, and part of that at the beginning was the study of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs.
I think most people aware of Maslow’s work would agree that he was spot on about his hierarchy of need. I would also go as far as saying that a Governments job should be to ensure that as best possible these needs can be met, this would be the measure of a decent society.
So starting at the bottom how do the Tories meet the need of say water, food, shelter, clothing, and reproduction.
As expected the Tories do nothing for the basic needs required by people. What about our security, employment, resources, health, and property.
Ok so on level two the Tories fail on every level. Surely they will meet some of level 3. These are friendship, intimacy, family, and a sense of connection.
Not so good for family, companionships, or community in Tory Britain then. Surely they will get something from highest level, surely we live in a country where anyone can rise to the top.
Nope unless your rich and posh you have virtually no chance of every reaching the top.
So there we have it, the Tories, and we could also say the red and yellow ones to a certain degree, make no effort to meet our physiological needs, the most basic ones we need to survive. The don’t meet our safety needs, in fact they make them worse. The Tories have designed policies that not only rob from the bottom levels but make achieving level 3 impossible which is love and belonging . They have actively tried to strip people of any sense of level 4 which is esteem, and well self actualisation is just a pipe dream for 99.9% of the country.
The Tories are scum end of.
