Quick thought on the Utopia TV show

I started to watch the first episode of Utopia, only to discover that it primarily consists of unpleasant people screaming at each other. I turned it off after half an hour.

But it occurs to me, unpleasant people screaming at each other is also a perfectly apt description of real politics. Only in real politics, when a bunch of obnoxious jerks band together to force their will on a different bunch of obnoxious jerks that are slightly fewer in number, it has an actual impact on our lives.

Just a thought.

(My apologies for this post being a week late. I’ve been too busy with that life stuff to blog.)
