I have been generally fearful of the future, have expressed my views on Jeff Besos, but occasionally I read something that gives me hope.

for those who do not know Nick Clegg, he was once half of a prime minister in the UK.  It was a disaster for him, and he has been constantly ridiculed ever since.  He must be thick skinned, because he is still about.

Sometimes he can talk complete sense. This I find quite up lifting, as he is right, it does not have to end in doom and gloom.
