We in the US hardly need to look at German examples. 100 years ago yesterday.eerily reminiscent of Kristallnacht.
It’s coming back, I believe. No shortage of material, that’s for sure.Thinking back to when I got my own first TV, where is "Spitting Image" (1984-1996) when you need it.
On second thoughts, you have live broadcast of the HoC and the WH, parody of parody rarely works.
What stage are we at just now? I reckon somewhere between the frustration and nightmare stages."the fantasy cycle" ... a pattern that recurs in personal lives, in politics, in history – and in storytelling. When we embark on a course of action which is unconsciously driven by wishful thinking, all may seem to go well for a time, in what may be called the "dream stage". But because this make-believe can never be reconciled with reality, it leads to a "frustration stage" as things start to go wrong, prompting a more determined effort to keep the fantasy in being. As reality presses in, it leads to a "nightmare stage" as everything goes wrong, culminating in an "explosion into reality", when the fantasy finally falls apart.
What I find quite astonishing that even with hindsight, 40% still believe it is the correct decision to leave the EU.
