I keep ill-advisedly reading the news and the my brain immediately envisions Donald Trump sitting atop the highest part of a castle pouring gasoline on everyone and everything as the world just beyond the moat continues to burn. (This is unfortunately literal.) Between Jerusalem, endorsing pedophiles, collusion, obstruction of justice, this kill-the-poor tax bill and Ajit Pai, reality doesn’t seem real anymore. Powerful corruption is forgiven with inaction. The American technocrat class continues to idly support complicity while the youth go crazy and farmers kill themselves.

The truly terrifying part of this age is that historically, horrific events catch the world off guard. We are in an age of new technology where the threat of something never-before-seen and totally-fucking-terrifying is very, very present. It’s bad enough we’re entrenched in global class war; the different ways this can play out are beyond any imaginable scope of fear.
