I haven’t been writing much, but I intend to change that. Events have conspired, and timetables have aligned to permit me a little more time and energy for thoughts that might fit here.
We are certainly at an interesting point in time. A lot has changed in the last seven years, and people have been scrabbling round for explanations. Some new bad guys have appeared, often in pairs – Assad and ISIS, Trump and Mexican rapists – or as odd singletons – Putin, Farage, Erdogan. I have some ideas about all this, and I will be putting some of them up here, soon.
But although the world seems a bit crazy right now, people are actually much the same. And that is both a comfort and a worry.
