A new year

And a new start, at least for,some.
Much has happened this year, much of importance.
We’ve seen the elected governments of two of our neighbours replaced by EU satrapies.
We’ve seen people rise up and remove dictators all over the middle east, with varying results.
We’ve seen the state at home show itself to be a paper tiger, even when faced with only a few thousand disorganized rioters with no aim other than big-screen televisions, shits, and giggles.
In short, we’ve seen that those who deign to rule are only at home when the ruled play the game. When faced with widespread disorder they are powerless. Like all bullies, when challenged they have nowhere to go.
Will 2012 be the year of the European Spring? Only time will tell.
Happy new year.
