Has there been any other era in history where the establishment embraced a spiraling spaghetti pot of madness like this one? Satire has been useless for a while now. Anything you can think up, no matter how crazy, is either already a leftist viewpoint somewhere or will shortly become one.

Short people don’t just save resources, but as resources become scarcer because of the earth’s growing population and global warming, they may also be best suited for long-term survival (and not just because more of us will be able to jam into spaceships when we are forced off this planet we wrecked…
