Changing of the guard

In 1997 we were seduced into believing they would change things. They were on our side. We gave them our hope. We waited.

Some time in the next two years there will be a new changing of the guard. The old lot will come back in, promising change, revitalisation, compassion.

Nietzsche warned us about the lot of them:

Mistrust all who talk much of their justice! Verily, their souls lack more than honey. And when they call themselves the good and the just, do no forget that they would be pharisees, if only they had - power.
