Home truth

Saw this article by the much disdained Mark Steyn and found myself nodding sadly along to every paragraph. 'Green' jobs, 'Rights' culture, Multiculturalism and various other modern day fairy stories.
The green jobs, the gay parades, the jihadist welfare queens, the Greek public sector unions, all have to be paid for by a shrinking base of contributing workers whose children and grandchildren will lead poorer and meaner lives because of the fecklessness of government. The social compact of the postwar era cannot hold. Across the developed world, a beleaguered middle class is beginning to understand that it’s no longer that rich. At some point, it will look at the sheer waste of government spending, the other shoe will drop, and it will decide that it no longer wishes to be that stupid.
Although I'm not holding my breath on the last sentence coming about in a hurry. If there's one thing many people dislike, it's having how very wrong you've been rubbed right in your face.

From Go on, read the whole thing. H/T Small Dead Animals.
