Pessimistic Predictions for 2019

By   /  January 3, 2019  /  Deconstructing Headlines, Martyn Bradbury, Most Recent Blogs  /  42 Comments

If 2018 was a lost year where the woke left & alt right dominated debate, 2019 could be the year of reactionary entropy.

I’d like to be optimistic, but there’s just no actual reason to be anything other than pessimistic about the damaged horizon looming like a fractured mirror in front of us.
