Everything's gone medieval these days, or at least it's headed that way. Forget civilization and the renaissance, forget science and progress, forget listening and being reasonable. We're back to wooden heads and wooden music in a pre-enlightenment loop. "Burn down the ballot boxes and hang the reasonable people" say the disagreeable people. Well the wooden music's OK, the wooden headedness takes a bit more getting used to. I liked it better when there was a bit more tolerance and democracy, less arguments about vaccinations and indicative votes and sugar was a reasonable enough ingredient. It only seems like yesterday, now nobody can agree about anything (not sure when people actually agreed about stuff but it must've happened at one time in recent history). Yesterday everything also turned into April, didn't see that coming.
