I'm fully of the belief that our own election next year is going to be a repeat. The world is just in a braindead right-wing holding pattern at the moment.

Brexit is whatever, but domestic policy is going to be really grim.

Congrats on your future transition to a free market healthcare system.
I feel that there is a fascistic element, for example, in the Rolling Stones . . .

The free market will improve efficiency because companies will have profit motives. That's how it works, right?
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

And what's more efficient than cutting costs like not treating parasitic poors?

Authority is supposedly grounded in wisdom, but I could see from a very early age that authority was only a system of control and it didn't have any inherent wisdom. I quickly realised that you either became a power or you were crushed

Yup. We're living this reality in the US right now. A voice was given to these cretins and that's all they needed to start pushing away the light in favor of the darkness.

I fear you're right. I just saw a poll that said only Biden would beat Trump in Wisconsin right now. I struggle to understand how that can be true, but I'm not shocked that it is.
