Oh Maya

Behold our “betters”:

Thousands of people in the Netherlands say they expect the world to end in 2012, and many say they are taking precautions to prepare for the apocalypse.
Which brings to mind other contemporary obsessions with the apocalypse, one where constantly staying off-kilter and never ending behaviour modification might might permit one to be slightly less guilt-laden. For now.
"You know, maybe it's really not that bad that the Netherlands will be destroyed," Petra Faile said. "I don't like it here anymore. Take immigration, for example. They keep letting people in. And then we have to build more houses, which makes the Netherlands even heavier. The country will sink even lower, which will make the flooding worse."
Besides, if the world is ending, why are they hoarding stuff and “preparing” for something?
