As each day arrives, I feel less inclined to comment on the state of the world.
There was a time when I could put forward alternative arguments to the madness that’s creeping over society, but we have reached a stage where society has descended through parody and weirdness to a level of total insanity.
How can I comment on a world where laws are dictated by vested interests, quasi-religious zealots and even so called “celebrities”? A world that can dictate by law what I do with my own private life?
How can I compete with a world whose norms are apparently set by social media, where we have to tiptoe through the minefield of Political Correctness in the hopes that someone somewhere isn’t offended?
How can I even get my head around a culture where people can decide their own gender on a whim? Where the very use of the words “he” or “she” can be considered “offensive” and where the offended’s feelings take priority over my own common sense?
What can I say about a world where the apparent answer to any problem is to introduce more and more restrictive laws, designed to control me and extract more money from my dwindling resources?
There used to be a time when the individual was treated as a reasonable person, capable of making their own decisions on how they lived their lives and how they were governed. That time has long gone I fear. Now we are becoming micro-chipped faceless numbers whose sole function is to provide the powers that be an income from taxes and fines.
There is no word for the level of the depths of insanity that I see around me.
Is it any fucking wonder I have taken to writing about cats and dogs?
