Merry Christmas?

In a world where liberal democracy is eroded and threatened daily, where fanatics are still striving to murder innocent people, where pointless, lucrative wars just go on and on and on, and where even genocide apparently remains an acceptable solution, it is hard to be merry this Christmas without suffering massive cognitive dissonance.

The only way to get through it may just to be thankful for the end of another shitty year, and to look forward in hope and optimism to the future. Here’s to 2018 sucking less.
