Sometimes I wonder at the power of denial. The linked article defines a Europe that evidently has been in a cave rereading “Be Here Now” for the last 25 years.
When I read articles today, sometimes I am stricken by the abysmal stupidity that will get you a position as a journalist. I have, in the relatively short time I have lived, witness a significant downward movement in the intellectual standard for Americans. As far as our ever worsening position in world ranking goes, well I guess it’s better having a no-fault society. Ya’ know a society in which there are no losers, no standards, no limits on behavior.
Things are getting worse at an exponential pace. I must speak before the future becomes our past’ The middle east has combusted. Weapons of mass destruction proliferate. More will follow.
