Cracking Under Pressure

The West is in dire straits. The EU is imploding. The US is disintegrating. Canada is facing an inflation rate of 10%. Western Liberal Democracy is in tatters. Riots and demonstrations are commonplace on the streets of Europe. The far-right has risen and obtained political power and representation in most countries. Visible minorities are getting shot on the streets of Sweden. Germany has announced the failure of multiculturalism. The authoritarian police state apparatus has been or is on standby to be implemented.
There is a global currency war raging currently as each country tries to devalue their currencies to boost trade.

In fact, OH is even more right wing and reactionary as the previous Bush administration. I was able to criticise OH under the context of disproving why he is not a socialist. My future with that blog is uncertain considering that I was employed by the owner of the website to work for his in his rather unsuccessful business endeavours. Enough about that. I would like to turn my attention to more pressing and urgent matters.
