The seemingly never ending wrongs of the modern Western world is throwing my brain through a loop and I want it to stop. It won't stop, of course, as i am nobody, but it is seriously giving me headaches.
Let us take what seems an innocuous comment.
"So by all means, let's fight the efforts of Japan, Norway, and other states to bring back the depredations of commercial whaling."
On first reading that comment seems harmless, yes? Read it again then ask yourself when did a country become state? Oh sure the term may have been used before and often but in todays world the world replacing the word country with state is yet another scary facet to how They want you to think.
