Whilst researching ways in which Moonbeam and I could devise a new world order I stumbled upon an interesting critique of the US political system written by Frank Prochaska, a British historian from Oxford.
He quotes historian Henry Adams, grandson and great-grandson of two American presidents, who said that politics is “the systematic organisation of hatreds”. Sums up the 21st century doesn’t it.

It’s cold today so it’s back to thinking mode in the hot water cupboard……
