But when?

"The last vestiges of democracy are sacrificed on the altar of Mammon. But where one would expect the angry roar of a crowd, kitted out with pitchforks and torches, with tar and feather, you only hear the desolate sound of a lonely cricket.

I sometimes despair for this country. Are we all as easily frightened as those that lead us into this mess? Have we really lost all of our courage, self-sufficiently? Are we really going the abomination they have planned for us?


Or are you going into your shed and sharpen your pitchfork, testing the rope you're keeping for when the occasion presents itself?
"
Well, people of Britain? The above applies just as much to us as it does to the Dutch.

Afternoon WfW…

Nice moniker he has…

Klein Verzet = Small resistance.

I know what he means, but it doesn't translate very well.
