A Greater Source

“[S]ince lamentation about the state of the world is one of life’s unfailing pleasures, the world is a greater source of satisfaction than ever.”

Theodore Dalrymple, “Reasons to be Cheerful”, The Spectator, 13th December 2003.

Such lamentation will shortly be forbidden. I do know what the world's coming to.

I hope they don't make us "celebrate the vibrancy of our modern lives". I'd prefer the humane option of being shot.

Which would be clever, were it true.
