The US President has questioned the future of the Western world.
The Islamic State has upped the ante on terrorism in every major city.
Global debt remains out of control.
And the political systems across the major democracies on this planet are in disarray.
There is a reason for this. We have lost our minds. And it shows.
Despite the big problems we face, the media, the politicians and even the people are obsessed with fretting about inanities.
Take Queensland for example:
“Drinking straws, coffee cups, bait bags and helium balloons need to be banned in Queensland, environmental groups have argued to the state government…
…The group also recommended the phasing out of all disposable plastic straws, knives, forks, spoons, cups and plates, which should be replaced with biodegradable and worm-friendly organic alternatives, such as starch.”
Sometimes I question why we bother trying to save the West.
Even if we succeed in staving off the Islamic State and the rainbow Gaystapo, the Fun Police will still find other ways to squeeze every ounce of enjoyment from life.
