The Second Coming by William Butler Yeats (1919)

Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.

Detainees: Maintain Silence

When Queen Elizabeth II passed away yesterday, early news reports from the BBC described the ‘socio-cultural changes’ that she had witnessed during her unparalleled reign as being ‘unprecedented’. Within less than five minutes, the narrative had been corrected to instead describe these socio-cultural changes as ‘global’, which, of course, they are. But why edit that word — why replace ‘unprecedented’ with ‘global’? Well, quite simply, to appease the LGBT wokerati. ‘Global’ softened the starkness of the reality, it dampened in ‘non-descriptness’ the abominations that Queen Elizabeth had witnessed.
