We know you don’t understand why we won’t stop moaning and make the best of it. We know you took your country back or took back control or whatever lies you believed, but the people you took it from weren’t a rich elite, it was us. While you think you are on the way to achieving your dream of a better life, for you, your family and your nation, against all the others trying to steal it from you or suck you dry with taxes, we lost our dream of greater equality, fairness for all, an end to prejudice and warfare. We lost a huge slice of human culture in the swamps again; mostly the good stuff. You chose the sole protection of wolves on a barren island when you burned that bridge to Europe or believed the vague dreams of proven fantasists.
So, right now, bottomless cynicism is all we have. It is the natural response of rational thinkers who believe in evidence before the rhetoric of slime-balls, to the tragedy that has befallen everyone who doesn’t think they are worth more than everyone else in the world and competition with sworn enemies is the only way to make progress. We don’t see any progress, just a slipping back to survival of the fittest. If you were really the fittest, why did you feel like losers on a level playing field?
We must eventually win or we all die, because the planet isn’t safe in your hands. You just made it very much harder. Your thoughtless positivism will be the death of us one day.
