Nowadays, outrage is our only mode of discourse. It is high time that we all calmed down
You know it's been a bad year when you find yourself slumped in front of the television watching The 50 Funniest Moments of 2012 and most of them do not make you laugh, they just make you incredulous about what humanity is becoming. At No 1 was footage from MTV's Tyneside reality show Geordie Shore, which showed an unusually flatulent woman wetting herself.
You start fulminating about the collapse of civilisation. And then you stop. Because you realise that you have fallen under the spell of 2012. You have been brainwashed, you are speaking in tongues and the only language you can talk is fluent Outrage. You have become One of Them.
As we advance towards the End of Days, as surely we do, social media are replacing most normal, considered interaction with bombastic, instantaneous verbalised graffiti. »
