What rough beast?

Yet another story of a bunch of disaffected dingbats. Look like Mau Mau revivalists. Black magic and female genital mutilation. I'm starting to feel like everything is coming apart, as the civilised world worries more about its hair and b list celebrities than the fact that we're facing a decade of increasing overpopulation and economic instability, coupled to regressive ignorance and superstition. Is anyone else scared? Can we club together to buy a cabin somewhere and nail large pieces of crooked wood up against the doors and windows?

Police are also investigating reports that the sect has extended its criminal activities to kidnapping and extortion.

 

Last week, security forces were placed on high alert following the distribution of leaflets allegedly authored by the sect leaders asking the youth to join the banned sect in readiness for an uprising against the government.

It's just a disaffected bunch of amoral utilitarians trying to invert the political landscape, leaving themselves up higher.

 

I'm up for the boarding-windows-with-crooked-wood idea, though. :)

So you'r saying that the business of axes etc is just their way of 'getting a head'?

Walsh, you are finally getting it. Why do you think that I am a tad isolationistic? When I was younger and a bit more idealistic I thought I could help turn the tide of the coming chaos but I couldn't. No one can. Only thing that can happen is the world to tear itself apart and if mankind survives the rendering I hope the survivors learn from the mistakes we, as a civilization, have made.

I guess this is how Romulus Augustulus must have felt as he watched the Visigoths mount the last seige of Rome.

I presume this was intentionally hilarious? I was merely venting the cowardly urge. A good night's sleep* and any Englishman worth his salt grips the corners of his outrageous moustache and sets his face against danger. I'm not seriously suggesting we quit. This the precise time when we can least afford to be selfish.

Setting your face against danger will get it kicked in. Repeatedly. By a steel toed boot.

 

Have fun.

No, face kicking and no, it is not good.

One of the things you may have noted about me is my keen interest in being able to stand up for goodness without getting kicked in the face. I believe it was Field Marshal Montgomery who said "The profession of arms is a life study on making sure the other fellow gets the boot in the conk."

Boots in the face do kinda hurt. But spiked heels are even worse. :thumbsup:

 

... Even if you alone can't change the "world", you can change things closer to home, and that's where it all starts. If we try and fall and pick ourselves up again to try some more, maybe the chance anything will change is really small, but if we don't, there's no chance at all.

 

And if I keep talking like this, no one will believe I'm actually a big cynic.

Conk = head or jewel satchel?

To be prefectly honest I don't know. I picked up the word from an older generation. You decide.
