Playing the game of “pain tag”

“You’re it!!”

Can’t be feeling helpless, hopeless, humiliated. Gotta pass the pain on to someone else.

Like some demented game of pass the parcel, where the clock keeps stopping and starting, starting and stopping and the parcel never gets unwrapped all the way down to the nasty little gift itself, and we get into positive feedback loops of tit for tat; Between nations, tribes, people. Within each of us.

What a species.

    Thank you Mr Towers. An epically stupid side of human nature succinctly summarised skillfully.
    Easy to swallow easy to follow.
    Have a nice day everyday.
