Thanks Tobias Stone, I’m glad you liked it!
You are right to say that I am not just critical: I agree with a lot of what you wrote in your original article. It was a timely invitation to reflect on exactly where we’re going. No one, of course, ever thinks that they’re living the last days of Rome. Just getting people to realise that an earth-shattering war is a possible future is worthwhile: it jolts people into action.
I would be interested to hear where you disagree with my response!
