Pity poor Britannia. God save America. - The Washington Post
Decades of sectarian violence, so brutal in our time, the bombings and assassinations, the children of Belfast raised amid hatred of Them vs. Us, can become a faded chapter of history, read with casual indifference, just as we enjoy reading about the Battle of Gettysburg. The demagogues who stoked the fires, the aging adolescents who stalked each other in the streets, the blind hatred, already is yielding to the lovely bourgeois idea of the peaceful life, the graceful home, supper in the back yard, no gunfire, nobody throwing stones. And so it goes.
Don’t give up hope. The Trumpists shall pass. God save America.
