Well, that’s all for now. I’m packing my stuff, and heading off tomorrow morning for pastures new. I’ve no plans to update this weblog in the foreseeable future, but I’m sure it’ll be back eventually.
In the meantime, have fun, and look after each other.
An article about re-educating troublesome teenagers the American Way (Part Two) reads like some kind of situational outline for a strange work of fiction. Deep down, I’ve a strong feeling that it’s entirely possible. The 1984-esque undertones of the thought police are concerning, as is the fact that so many people can’t see that this is all very, very, very wrong. In go normal people (oooh, smoking pot? Having sex? Quick, to the detention camp!), and out come fucked up zombies. Who will perhaps remain zombies, or who might go through years of mental trauma about what was done for them. Broken bones mend, and bruises fade, but that kind of mental torture will last a lifetime.
