“Lobbying by Poland and Hungary has led to the removal of the phrase ‘gender equality’ from a Friday declaration on advancing social cohesion in the European Union.”
Thank goodness they didn’t try to remove “Single Market” or there would have been a huge uproar.
@dch Because we still fundamentally respect fairy tales as much as facts and because we mostly act out of fear of rocking the boat and because we can be hugely hypocritical when it comes to looking after #1 and because we’ve let a relative handful of psychopaths shape society in their image.
@aral ok phew I can relax then, I thought we were being run by craven fools whose only thought was how to summon enough cash to line their pockets and have enough to get re-elected, while destroying the only planet in the known universe with life, let alone sentience. This is so much better.
@dch *hug* I still believe we can make things better. But I’m not discounting the fact that I could be wrong and a fool. The only thing I can guarantee is that I will be naïvely working under that assumption until the day I die (to try and affect the kind of non-predatory society I want to live in where naïveté is the norm and is celebrated instead of ridiculed – and self-serving/preserving hypocrisy is seen as the shortsighted folly it is).
