Example text

Han kunde omöjligt stillatigande se det mänskliga förfallet fortgå, han var på något sätt tvungen att revanschera sig. Mästaren sade att han skulle föras in i en liten exklusiv klubb som brukade mötas hemma hos honom med jämna mellanrum. Kloka människor som liksom han hade tjänat välfärdsstaten, men som sedan av någon anledning börjat tvivla och nått insikt om att allt gått snett. De pratade om sina insikter.

Om slutsatsen är att politiska beslut inte är positiva och att det finns grund för kritik mot politikerna i detta land, leder det då samtidigt till uppfattningen att människan är ofelbar?

Han påminde sig att det uppenbarligen funnits meningsskiljaktigheter före den stora partisammanslagningen. De hade tydligen inte varit större än att det gått att förena. Han kände ett stigande obehag av alla dessa oönskade tankegångar. Hela denna dag var ett brott mot den rationalitet som dagligdags präglade hans vardag.
