This is just a note to remind me of some of the things that have gone wrong with the world recently. Apparently there are enough that I struggle just to keep track of them.

  • Climate. Extensive wildfires, flooding, deadly heat.
  • Brexit
  • Destruction of UK public services, especially the NHS
  • Transphobic and misogynistic campaigns throughout the US, UK, Poland, …
  • General rise of fascism.
  • Economy - inflation, people getting poorer.
  • Migrant deaths in the Med, and elsewhere. That which is pushing them.
  • Covid
  • Invasion of Ukraine (by a nuclear power).
  • Palestinian genocide (by a nuclear power).
  • General unease between China, Taiwan, the US.

For some reason my friends seem to be getting more stressed and unhappy recently.
