Is the world is going mad?

Those whom the God’s would destroy...

The EU... is tearing itself to pieces. They no longer simply argue with Britain...one of the main distributors to the EU coffers... they fight with each other.

The British public is torn between staying or leaving. Political parties indulging in self destruction

William and Harry...if the press...or false news is to be believed are in dissent.

Corbyn as an alternative leader of Government would herald our destruction... and that one, unfortunately is totally believable. Unfortunately because there are many who follow him who lack basic education.

Russia under Putin is set upon confrontation. They have behaved...as they do... then been sanctioned, and bitterly resent it. Iran, N Korea, Islamic fundamentalists, have peddled their toxic beliefs and sanity attempts to constrain.

China has expanded to a peer competitor in world supremacy...not by innovation, not by hard work in science, in exploration , by investment in education, research, and original thought
... but by theft, hacking, lack of respect for intellectual property.

World powers seem at odds, Islam has beeen steadfast upon global domination under an ancient cruel, archaic, intolerant, and abhorrent religion. Islam by simple birth statistics rather than by reason, morality or simply free will, could dominate simply by reproduction.

The snowflake, politically correct, softly softly, approach to common sense law and order in our streets, our courts, our schools, which seem to be in danger of complete collapse, has seen our basic structures in danger.

The idea of free travel, no borders, Shenegen free movement, high office without support, without control, without limits, checks and balances, without consequence, the imballance of social safety networks promotes and unequal movement of people.

Crime is running riot, instability is rife, and populations are concerned.In a world that is so connected, where individual concerns are so widely distributed, where does one turn for a focus upon sanity.

There is sanity, there are checks and ballances, always have been, but sometimes we do find ourselves wondering how close to the line between sanity and chaos we stray?

Has it always been like this but we simply did not have the information to know it?
Take car. Go to mum's. Kill Phil - grab Liz, go to the Winchester, have a nice cold pint, and wait for all of this to blow over. How's that for a slice of fried gold?
 
Well, a relief to know others share this occasional moment of slight anxiety about some of life’s less jocular moments.

Tea sounds good. The universal panacea for Brit brief moments of doubt.

Got a balcony, guess flower pots don’t exactly qualify as rolling pastures.

Hadn’t heard that little ditty from Billy J before, guess he soldiered on, hear he’s coming to London for a gig or two.

Seems the world continues to turn, that’s reassuring.
A balcony.....can I come and practice.
 
Got sheep on mine
Our garden occasionally got raided by the woolly twats , I told the farmers mate I was going to knock one off with my .22LR and put it in the freezer , never seen the sheep again.

Kind of the same.
Sheep got in, farmer rather recalcitrant in collecting them.

Until I mentioned the Staffordshire bull terrier being let out to eat the 3 lambs that were busily trying to munch everything in sight.

He arrived inside 10 minutes.

There was armourer in NI who made a crossbow using an SLR (hail it's mightiness) stock & pistol grip for the furniture, a ground down Land Rover leaf spring as the bow part and he lathed up bolts out of SLR (Hail its mightiness) gas pistons. Then when they went on patrol they would find a suitable sheep filled field, back up a Land Rover with a crossbow marksman prone in the back and.....................BBQ time.

That's the most boring suicide note ever.

Be careful to get your whole head in front of the shotgun.

PS What size boots are you?
Oh I don’t know fairy boy, prefer your head there, and besides, life does have its brighter moments to hang around for.

Good post OP. I get the 'Things seem bad but are basically ok' angle but I barely watch the news these days and therefore mainly respond to things I see: there are clear and increasing issues, particularly with homelessness and with drug taking/dealing, the latter literally in broad daylight.
What concerns / disconcerts me is the perception - at least for the UK's issues - that people in authority are not really bothered anymore. Linking this to
@Nato Standard123 's post about, basically, a 30 year-old man being able to attend school because the school and local authority were paralysed by a fear of being thought racist if they acted, it is hard to comprehend.
As a country, this slide in standards seems to be being tolerated. Politicians and individuals are often more worried about being thought to be compassionate and 'good' rather than effective.
My bold. IMHO this is the crux of the problem. We in the West (as a very broad generalisation) are so utterly obsessed with being "good" and "right" that we're selling ourselves down the river at a rapid rate of knots.

I was going to write out a list of how we're being consistently and comprehensively outplayed at every turn but it would be too long a list.

Root cause, a soft and decadent society obsessed with whatever the latest crisis for virtue signalling is. Isn't this how Rome fell?
 
Nothing like a nice piece of Roast Lamb, and was idly wondering if it only the young males that end up on the menu. After all the ewes produce and a farmer doesn’t need that many rams to do the job.

Meanwhile I guess some of the problems are not helped by our worldwide instant news, fake news, and the fact that ‘bad’ news sells more copy than ‘good’ news. And as the other thread so rightly points out we seem to be immersed in ‘Toxic news’ nearly all the time.

There is big demand for mutton fed on the Romney Marsh near to me.The "chefs" reckon the salt in the grass helps the flavour. Anyway - it's all about the age of the sheep.
A lamb is a young sheep under 12 months of age. A Hogget a sheep of either sex. Mutton a female (ewe) or castrated male (wether) sheep typically aged between 1 and 3 years
