Politics was no longer my thing.
I gave up on it a long while back when I realized the problems we are facing.

Toby Ng - The World of 100
Have you ever asked yourself, what would the World look like as a small community of 100 people? Probably not. However, it is something to think about, as the reality would be startling - as much as you’d think so, the village would only have 7 computers, and only 1 person in the World Village would be educated at University level.

Frank Sinatra was releasing music around the same time Rosa Parks was refusing to give up her seat to a white man and Abbot and Costello released a film the same year the US dropped the bomb, Kitty Genovese was stabbed to death despite several of her neighbours hearing it happening the same year The Beatles made their debut on Ed Sullivan and now, yes, we have amazing technology and the ability to parade our vapidity around on Facebook
But people are so fucking complicated and there’s always been stupid and wonderful and that’s really the just the human condition and you can be a misanthropic piece of shit about it or you can just take the bad with the good because that’s literally what humans have been doing the entire time they’ve been on this stupid and wonderful chunk of rock we call earth
