It is truly sad that the world has slipped into a similar early 20th century melee of stupidity. As a general rule we, when children, are expected to learn from our mistakes then move on to the next stage as informed beings. Yet still we are mired in a sticky soup of slapstick farce where no-one has the courage to look behind the curtain and face the truth.
Unity, peace and long term thinking is seen as outmoded fantasy. Yet if one traverses a few yards into history; when have we ever given the liberal view a long enough chance to flourish as it should? Much easier to rattle sabres whilst grabbing as much pie for the self and oppressing the populous with guns, lies and brinkmanship.
For now though I cannot expect a childish world to grasp these realities. I suggest we take a few days off or maybe a century to think then think clearly. There is more to our lives than bickering reality T.V.
