This is not really a post. More a brief expression of deep, deep, deep unease. While Giles Fraser is on BBC Daily Politics talking shit about peace and love, we actually have the world we have. We have a monumental refugee crisis which is exposing tensions in Europe, tensions within countries, the folly of decades of geo politics, and the solutions being offered up by various countries open up alarming possibilities. Prisons, camps, displaced people, a global political blueprint which demonises according to inequality faultlines. A winter coming. And millions of displaced people. Deep, deep, unease. #helpisnot coming but something is in the air and that something isn’t good.
Is all very well that crisis which bring us face to face with who we are bring change, but those crisis are often very very ugly and leave scars that last generations.
