I was thinking as I read this rather unremarkable piece, not of individuals, but of our collective actions. How whatever is governing national (and international) actions, it’s not those whose role it is to govern. What populist demagoguery and endless wars of exploitation have uncorked are forces that once again seem to have taken control. One may reasonably fear that we’ve reached a point where nothing will end this outbreak of the monsters of repression till it drowns in chaos and blood.
