Thuringia Foretells the Fracturing of Germany

It’s hard to overstate the importance of the election results last weekend in Thuringia.  The complete collapse of the two centrist parties there, Angela Merkel’s CDU and the Social Democrats (SPD), is looking like a harbinger of what comes next in German politics.

There is no hope. Humans will have proved an evolutionary anomaly. Highly intelligent and adaptable, though lacking foresight. The innovative prefrontal cortex still no match for the primitive amygdala when under stress. Sexually unseasonal. Wasteful of resources. When their dust settles, perhaps the next speciation of survivors will prove a better adaptation. I pity your daughter.
