"... Just like the Pied Piper
Led rats through the streets,
We dance like marionettes,
Swaying to the symphony
Of destruction ... "
For the first time, I was actually a bit frightened, along with my usual revulsion.
I've said many times that the man is no longer capable of rational thought, assuming he ever was, and I was only half-serious.
Now I am completely serious.
On display today was a man obviously and completely incapable of rational thought, and everyone's playing this game, pretending it's just typical political business-as-usual.
This is literally a madman pretending to run the country, it's sick, sad and scary.
He is completely delusional.
It would be pathetic, if it weren't so dangerous.
When is everyone on all sides going to give up the game?
This is all unreal, until it's real.
This not a argument of ideals, nor is it a pragmatic discussion.
This is not an abstract problem. This is an existential problem.
Every minute the two main parties sit and pretend this situation can be solved through speeches, legislations and elections is one minute closer to disaster.
Every minute those in the legal system pretend that this can be solved through investigation and litigation is a minute closer to catastrophe.
Every minute the press and media pretends that this is fodder for analysis, debate and lively discussion is a minute closer to annihilation.
It’s so obvious this has to end.
This has to end now.
Who is going to shatter this charade?
