Where have all the people gone?
Wow: nothing says a "new dawn" like a 78 year-old Crypt-Keeper clone presiding over a private wake for the American Imperium, don't you think?
Tired old man, tired old empire, disappointment and cringe so palpable they nearly have physical form. Obama-era divas looking and sounding as stale as Greta Van Fleet. Everyone looking awkward, deflated.

"Give people light and they will find a way." - Joe Biden
"The hermit goeth solitary, and giveth only of his light unto men." - Aleister Crowley
"Or we can choose a different path, and together, take this chance to heal, to be reborn, to unite. A path of hope and light." - Joe Biden
"Light illuminates the path of humanity: it is our own fault if we go over the brink." -Aleister Crowley
