Yeah! It's a party in the USA!

The photographs were taken at Tremanskärr on March 20th.

This morning I walked for two hours at Oittaa, visiting lake Sorlampi. It was rather cold for Easter, -4 °C.

Once again I'm a bit afraid to check what has happened in the USA. Poisoning the environment, destroying education, killing healthcare, dropping bombs... What next?

(Posting title is from the song Party In The USA by Miley Cyrus.)

Oh well, as soon as Pandora's box is open, there certainly is more, and even unthinkable things to come.

What is really bad in my eyes is the anti-science, anti-evidence indoctrination happening now. While a certain reservation and critical stance towards progress is necessary, what can be seen here is a generation thrown back to their gut instincts, and with it the resurgence of primitive, tribe based and often openly racist movements. Something that I had sincerely hoped to be a thing of the past, at least in Western-style democracies.

Markus, you are right, it seems that the primitive is in resurgence, and somehow everything we humans as a species have learned is no longer valued. It is just a big dumpster fire almost all over the world. And frighteningly many of those who are talking the loudest don't have any sense at all.
