It's stuff like this that seriously makes me consider moving.

But then I think "where to?"  And, more importantly if Europe (or just the UK depending on what happens next week) is going down the shitter and rabid loonies are going to be running around the place, well running away seems like taking the easy option, you know?  Eventually you run out of places to run away to.  And I'm fairly sure it's an ethical obligation, to fight shit-head quasi-fascists.  I mean, it's probably not expressed quite so bluntly, but that's a fairly valid interpretation of the essence of being a good person, I like to think.

Yep. Looks like we are rapidly closing in on a moment in history where you have the perfect mindset and skill set to be one of the men of the moment. Kudos on your course choices - unless you really did want a quiet life, of course. Lets just hope that the pen really is more powerful than the sword . . . its certainly the best tool for twitting the growing armies of the trollosphere.
Everybody complains about politicians. Everybody says they suck. Well, where do people think these politicians come from? They donít fall out of the sky. They donít pass through a membrane from another reality. They come from American parents and American families, American homes, American schools, American churches, American businesses and American universities, and they are elected by American citizens. This is the best we can do folks. This is what we have to offer. Itís what our system produces: Garbage in, garbage out. If you have selfish, ignorant citizens, youíre going to get selfish, ignorant leaders.     St George Carlin

I am glad I am an old woman. I probably won't live long enough to see the worst excesses of the proletarian revolution that the smarmy pig-fucker has visited on us, but I am kinda sorry for my kids and grandkids. Oh, and you guys, too  :wink:. It is fascinating, in a grotesque way, to watch the "banality of evil" start to crawl across europe's face.

again

What a shame that Hannah Arend didn't live to see this. We are living in a social scientist's worst nightmare and wet-dream, watching helplessly [probably] as history repeats itself.

It's not just Europe.  The whole world is losing it's nut.

The whole world never had it's nut. It's a planet full of idiotic talking primates and the trend is a population increase. What we're seeing is evidence that the more idiots you put on a planet, the more retarded the overall global situation becomes. Wait'll we hit 10billion. I have a hunch that'll be the tipping point for an Idiocracy-style critical mass.

Same applies here.  It's been a long period of relative sanity.
