Not been writing much on the site. Mentally I like my small piece of the internet to be filled with information and thoughts of interest. To myself in the future and to others right now.

This period reminds me of a terrible period in the mid-2010s. One night in particular I went to sleep holding my then 3 year old tightly and crying at the state of the world (I just searched for an article and the emotion flooded back).

Many forms of Government have been tried, and will be tried in this world of sin and woe. No one pretends that democracy is perfect or all-wise. Indeed it has been said that democracy is the worst form of Government except for all those other forms that have been tried from time to time.….
