The state of the West

I’ve been reading the Western comments on the recent events. It’s not an easy reading, to put it mildly; it’s like watching someone cut himself with a knife, wallow in mud, bugger himself with a thorny stick and scream “Putin is Hitler, he is evil!”, only it’s 90% of the “western civilisation”. You hope they’re under the influence of some bad drug, but you fear they’re not.
