UK Politics / Rishi Sunak Found the Magic Money Tree
"After 2010 British politics was shaped by one idea above all others: austerity. We were told that there wasn't enough money to pay for EMA, university fees, council housing or even the existing range of benefits.

54 years ago, ST:TOS episode A Taste of Armageddon aired. In it, a culture has computer simulated war for 500 years and "casualties” tailed by the machine must report to euthanasia chambers. At the end, Kirk gives a speech.
Death, destruction, disease, horror... that's what war is all about, that's what makes it a thing to be avoided. You've made it so neat and painless you've had no reason to stop it.
