With the increasingly volatile situation in the US, the escalating showdown between the US and China, and the increasingly alarming reports on pollution and the environment, let’s do some crystal ball gazing.
I read a twitter thread last week from a journalist from the Capital Gazette. You know, one of the people chosen as Time’s persons of the year. His colleagues were shot in a mass shooting this past summer.
Much as I’d like to see the silver lining there, Trump is still calling the press a public enemy. The Saudi prince who had another person of the year strangled and sawed into pieces has received only frowns at the G20 top, and Brazil elected a potential dictator.
All this got me thinking about the dangers of our belief in happy endings.
