Been following the news from the USA with increasing alarm over the last week or so. It seems that not only have many Americans forgotten what those with humanist morality on their side were fighting for in their civil war, but also what their grand-parents fought and died for in Europe just 75 odd years ago. 

As someone once said, "those that cannot remember the past are doomed to repeat it". Comparing lard-arsed, gun-toting, gas-guzzling racist slobs with those that oppose them is ridiculous, it's like demonizing fire-fighters for making burning buildings wet! False equivalence is fast becoming the butt-covering (and you need a lot of it to cover those butts!) mantra of the right, let's hope Americans who have read more than just one book gain the political ascendancy again very soon.
