    In the face of such triumphant cruelty & bigotry, nihilism begins to look more appealing all the time. How long, dear God?

    I totally agree. People are easily scared into thinking the worst, when they're told they are going to lose something. Even when plainly it was only a positive thing we were voting on. I am quite often ashamed to call myself Australian. More so today.
