Mere anarchy ...

... is loosed upon the world.

Over the last few days I have been watching with eye-opening interest the PBS series "The Vietnam War" by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick.
At the time this conflict was going on I was a pre-teenager and living in what was then Rhodesia which was involved in its own conflict. I vaguely remember the news reports about Vietnam especially during the era of Nixon. Watching the Netflix series fills in gaps and provides better order to my disjointed knowledge of this piece of world changing history.

I am struck by the stark difference in the politicians language of then and now.
The clear and deliberate, carefully chosen words (whether they were lies or true beliefs) contrast to the infantile rhetoric of the people we ALL* choose to lead us today.
... another revelation is Knock down the House ...

*I say "ALL" ... I believe that all the electorate vote for a political party / system whether they physically vote or abstain from voting. Not voting is culpable to granting a motivated minority to dictate the direction of an election result.

... image has absolutely bugger all to do with the text ...
