Does anyone else notice an inordinate number of adult children? Both men and women. Is it the natural progression of the video-game man child? Anyway, there seems to be more. You could generally count on older generations who experienced war and hardship not to be fools. That was their strength. Now there’s no one to say “you don’t know what being a fanatic means,” or “you have no idea what the cost of hatred is.” We have these people, but we call them refugees and confuse them with the oppression they are fleeing.
The trend toward authoritarianism becomes even more frightening when we see infant dictators applauding their own nuclear ambitions or discontented potentates dragging the world down for their own selfish gains.
