But if you keep ignoring what the people think, and keep kicking the can down the road while chortling to yourself that you got away with it again, one day this is going to blow up in your face. This is a specific example of the more general "failure of the cultural myth" or "failure to believe in a nation's institutions". It means that people start believing conspiracy theories, even the most ludicrous, and never believe anything that a politician tells them. You don't want that, although it may already be too late as The Donald Trump Disaster demonstrates.
What can you do about this?
Put them all in jail. Yes, even the ones who gave all that money to your reelection campaign and that you have been protecting all these years behind the scenes. Even those executives you play golf with. Even them.
