Buffoonery

I’m just afraid that this will all collapse into meaningless buffoonery once again, just like happened as a result of the global economic crisis of 2008. 

On TV, commentators are celebrating the rosy future where “Trump and those who don’t disavow him will find it hard to sell anything to millennials because millennials are all about having a social conscience” [this is a pretty exact quote]. These idiots are useless. 

I was hoping a leader would arise out of this, at least. But the only leader who has appeared so far is Nelson Mandela. A pity he’s not available to run in 2020. 

I’m afraid that this will all end up producing nothing but a bunch of clever tweets, funny memes, and tickled palates.

    Will? It’s been buffonery for quite a time now.

    “once again, just like happened as a result of the global economic crisis of 2008”

    How many Wall Street/Banking figures went to jail for their part in the massive mortgage scams that caused the crisis?

    How can anyone take the system seriously after that?

    The MO is clear. Full speed ahead and brazen it out and ethics fall by the wayside as the most aggressively agrieved win.
