Whenever I See the Gathering Clouds of Nihilism, It's Strangelove For Me.

At times it can seem that, as a species, we're backsliding.  Egalitarianism seems to be in rout.  The drive for equality has stalled and is quietly reversing.  We now focus on the short term, the relatively trivial stuff and pursue means and goals that are outdated, even discredited, while we give a pass to the long term issues and challenges that confront us.  Why does it feel like we're getting back to this mentality?

Most highly educated populations ever to people the planet in the western democracies and one by one they're starting to come apart at the seams due to ignorance and apathy.

True enough, Dana. Still I love that clip, especially the final line, "Mein Furher, I can valk!"
