Things are looking up

I survive the gradual, and I now fear inevitable, disintegration of our democracy because great literature and poetry, great philosophy and theology, the great works of history, remind me that there were other ages of collapse and despotism.

Which is all well and good for the likes of you, Chris Hedges, but some of us have crusts to earn and nappies to change. Besides, snuggling up with a well thumbed Thucydides isn’t going to save you from the Mad Max-style marauders who are sweeping the land even as we speak, robbing the last tins of tuna flakes at gunpoint.

Do you know, I haven’t read a novel since before Christmas.
