Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The far right has succeeded in politicising everything, including science, geology, meteorology, climate science, medicine, healthcare, pregnancy, gender identification, human rights and basic administrative competence. Creating viable brands which appeal to certain markets, has supplanted any notion of objective truth, and the very process of government has been vilified as evil as it interferes with the power of corporations and billionaires.

In such a sick society everything becomes problematic. I sometimes think the Civil War didn't really resolve anything, and was merely replaced by a low intensity guerrilla war eating at the fabric of US society. A healthy society simply cannot function in the absence of a consensus on some basic principles, and politics becomes little more than a surrogate for a continuance of war.

You need another revolution, only this time the enemy is not the British empire. It is within you.
