The Unreal World: The 2015 Season
If buttercups buzz’d after the bee
If boats were on land, churches on sea
If ponies rode men and if grass ate the cows
And cats should be chased into holes by the mouse…
During his most recent appearance on the Hugh Hewitt Show, Mark Steyn painted an accurate picture of The West as it currently is, heads crammed deep into sand [paragraphing mine]:
HEWITT: …It’s really an upside down world.
STEYN: Yeah, and it’s a slightly faintly unreal world. In a way, we’ve moved on from same sex weddings where we’re talking now about transgendered bathrooms. And I’m sure we’ll be talking about transgendered bathrooms when the mullahs nuke us. These are like first-world indulgences at a time when large chunks of the map are going backwards.
And I think back to that, the mall seizure in Kenya a couple of years ago. A lot of your listeners don’t pay any attention to Kenya. Who cares? It’s East Africa. They’re all crazy over there. Well, they’re not, actually. That was a sophisticated, first-world, upscale mall. And the idea that one day slaughter descends out of the blue and there’s corpses all over the floor. That actually is a metaphor for what’s going on in the world.
You know, we’re a fabulous boutique, and there are dark, primal forces out there that want to just smash that boutique. And the idea that we can somehow live as an upscale, little Monte Carlo or Switzerland, and just obsess about transgendered bathrooms while the rest of the planet goes to hell is completely ridiculous.
Ah!…but ridiculous rules the land these days.
Black is white; Good is Evil – and vise versa.
The Normal is damned as Abnormal, while the Perverse [in every meaning of that word*] is proclaimed the ‘Real, True Normal’.
There’s a Madness that has gripped The West, one that sees it’s peoples moving rapidly towards a downfall in an act of mass self-suicide, a Gotterdammerung Of Self-Indulgence.
If the mamas sold their babies
To the Gypsies for half a crown
If summer were spring
And the other way ’round
Then all the world would be upside down!
