    I have never seen anyone play the cello as if it were a bass guitar before. Although I can understand why he was ignored when (and moved on from) playing inside the memorial itself, the fact that most people continued to ignore him outside – speaks to the nature of the problem we face in getting people to face up to the unsustainable nature of modern civilisation…

    I therefore hope the mostly elderly, wealthy and white people of the Republican Party will get over the shock of being confronted with the reality of their demographically unelectable position; and start to do just that. I also hope that they may yet come to accept that concern for the environment is not based on communist ideology – just high school physics.
