Two Minutes Hate: Spill, Baby, Spill

How many of you have woken up over the last couple weeks and almost immediately thought: damn, the world is in the toilet? Me too. The last month or so has been perhaps one of the most horrible times I have ever experienced, with the beginning of the Iraq War being one of the few things that even comes close.

Whether or not it’s a Chinese curse, the adage about living in “interesting times” becomes more and more apt with each passing week. Despite how awful things are, there seems to be a lingering scent of resistance in the air. I concede that this could entirely be wish-fulfillment and solipsism on my part, but it seems as if things could explode at any second.

    You're only hoping against hope that the recent tragedies (and they are tragedies, no doubt) will be the spark that *finally* brings about the long-awaited socialist revolution.

    Don't hold your breath. Socialists have been waiting, hoping, praying, and killing in the name of revolution for almost 200 years … but it hasn't happened: http://www.stephenhicks.org/wp-content/uploads/
