    I have the feeling there are bigger forces at play here. Some with direction from certain parties (cough Russia), and some more nebulous forces like technology and globalisation.

    I'm not yet even 40, and the world has been transformed since i was a child in terms of technology It's also got a lot lot more complex, and i'm not sure our monkey brains are handling it too well.

    Is it possible we're collectively in some kind of nervous breakdown of society, in that we just can't cope with the world now?
