Like the great prophet of our era, I have come down from the mountain. You awakened me with your “election season” noise. This is your fault. I liked it up there.
While I’m putting together some initial thought, here’s a little light reading for you:
Sadism is not for everyone, not even for every neoliberal. Some just don’t have what it takes. ‘Mr Clinton’, Kissinger once famously (and rather unfairly) muttered into a cocktail, ‘does not have the strength of character to be a war criminal.’
I hate election season. You are warned.
