BIG BIG SIGH

I'm trying to visualize a textbook article written 50 years from now, about the years 2010-2012.

And I'm hoping it says "During this period, America went through another phase of McCarthyism, but eventually snapped out of it."

but you know it, it's going to say "2010-2012 was a relatively sane period of history."

The entire Obama era can be summed up by the cartoon below which, I honestly think is the best political cartoon since 2008:

'There are few records of the time before The Great Purge, but some evidence has led radical scholars to suggest that at least sixty per cent of the population was literate, implying there was some great culture in these Enlightened times.'
Truly, though our element is time,
We are not suited to the long perspectives
Open at each instant of our lives.
They link us to our losses: worse,
They show us what we have as it once was,
Blindingly undiminished, just as though
By acting differently, we could have kept it so.

-Reference Back, Phillip Larkin

End times.

They're not going to have textbooks in 50 years, Cram.  Look at the LAST 50 years.

They don't WANT people to learn, much less to think.

I like the Luna one. She is a good one.

Here's an irony - this law is more dicatatorial and authoritarian than a law currently being proposed in China, which would allow the state to detain someone without charge for six months in cases of National Security type concerns.

America is being more totalitarian than China.  Just let that sink in.

Well.

I've been wanting to learn Chinese for quite some time. Now I have that much more reason to.

That's incredibly depressing.
