It was 2014 and Jože P. Damijan, a potential KUL prime minister, had already written his blog. And what you can’t find on his blog. In 2014, Damijan posted on his blog that he did not appreciate politicians and therefore did not go to the polls. Why doesn’t he appreciate politicians, or didn’t he appreciate them in 2014? Because he believed that these were incompetent people who could not succeed in the market and were looking for a way to the trough through politics.
Jože P. Damijan wants to go into politics in 2020, he even wants to become a prime minister, and thus skip all possible steps. In 2014, however, he wrote on his blog, almost contradictory with his actions today. He wrote about not voting because he can’t force himself to vote for politicians. Why not? Because, according to his policy, they are the worst kind of people, and elbowers, who know they can’t achieve anything in the market, try to push themselves to the trough through politics.
If they were mean to Damijan, they would throw it in his face and tell him that now he too is that elbow that he values the least in the world or doesn’t appreciate at all. Well, we won’t. But how, then, to understand how to reconcile what Damjan thought of politicians in 2014 with the fact that he now wants to get into politics?
Has Damjan changed his mind about politicians?
Let’s leave aside the fact that Damijan himself was not much in the right market. He may have changed his mind about politics, but he may not have made an exception for himself, or perhaps, in our most plausible explanation, he sees himself as a kind of superior saviour of politics. But if we recall his anti-Euro rhetoric, this is the second major rhetorical slip that can be blamed on JPD, which shows that it has problems with consistency.
