    I think I see what you did there. I have been struggling, especially lately, with anger & despair following all the political insanity going on in our own country, & all the disasters going on worldwide. It’s hard for some who deals with mood disorders & self-esteem on a good day, to watch all this go on, especially when you feel powerless to help. As someone who was once politically active, to have to just turn it off & focus on myself is heartbreaking, especially when people who don’t understand talk down to me like I don’t care & am just sitting back letting them roll over us. Every day I struggle with finding a reason not to end my life. That’s my fight these days. I don’t have the energy to worry about “the bigger picture” too.

    I admit I pretty much stopped following Czech political scene (and I have degree in International relations). Its pettiness drives me insane and our media focus on it too much. War in Lybia? Does not matter to them…. let’s focus on how politico no. 1 offended politico no. 2 by saying something about their bigamist lifestyle.

    I follow the world, partly because I have to, partly because it is my outlet, partly because I am a cosmopolitan… and politics make more sense to me than pop culture (though i have guilty pleasure in Eurovision). West Bank Blues sounds so much cooler than “I feel sad because… I don¨t know why” after all.
