extreme make-over: a rant

Being young isn't easy, you know.

Wanna be in my gang? people ask.

And, well, why not join in? We ourselves don't have a clue what we're supposed to be doing, and these people seem so full of thrilling confidence.

The British Government is worried about young people taking up with terrorists and other idiots.

Personally, I think it'd be a help if the Prime Minister got rid of his Extremism Taskforce and ran an Anti-Extremism Taskforce, instead.

After all, if what we wanted was confusion and muddled-headedness then we could manage it quite adequately by ourselves.

Word To Use Today: extremism. This word comes from the Latin exterus, which means on the outside.
