Abstract

It started off as tense, but quickly became rather boring, like slowly watching the sun burn out and waiting for its inevitable impact. The pedestrian results of last week’s US Presidential election quickly lost their lustre, even if the vote seemed to be turning the way of integrity. As I write this, the signs are Joe Biden will be President, and despite his rhetoric of unity will probably oversee a further period of civil unrest and instability for America. Especially in those southern states which have always had an uncomfortable relationship with the Union and Capitol Hill.
