“I don’t know how to make sense of this or spin it in some positive way. We’ve gone mad, and hallucinations loop through the zombie corpus of our once-great nation of nutjobs who can be stopped by armed Georgians in airport bars. We’re inventing the enemy — a national pastime since 9-11, and a favoured tactic among fearmongers bending the state to their will.”

I hope this paints a clearer picture for others, trying to make sense of this insanity.
