No I’m not catastrophising.

The world is slowly lurching towards a fully fascist led America, India, Hungary, Russia, Netherlands, Germany, Italy and Argentina.

Instead people are either ignorant or blaming “wokeism”* for their problems.

I have no clue what to do and this is literally a car crash in slow motion.

I’m despondent because I’m going to be crushed under the boot when the time comes and my morals get in the way of my survival instinct.

Humans are repeating the mistakes of the past. It’s just so anxiety inducing.

*Woke is a useless term promulgated by fascists to dog whistle the things they really want to hate - feminism, socialism, LGBTQIA+, immigration, brown/black people, equality and diversity.

    Things often get a whole lot worse before they get better. People thought things were on the brink of turning to shit in the 1930s, and then we had a world war for 6 years. Tens of millions of people died, countless more were displaced, cities were leveled, and history was lost.

    I admire your optimism, but I can’t ignore that the world and even my country specifically look more and more like a powder keg with every passing day. I’m terrified that we can’t get to “fine” again without first suffering through an extremely dangerous period of time, and there’s no guarantee that any of us will be “fine” during that time.

      We haven’t had a world war since WW2. We haven’t got two likely sides now. China owns too much of the West, Russia is no longer credible
