Corporate Europe Observatory: *Europe’s two-faced authoritarian right: ‘anti-elite’ parties serving big business interests*

What nobody tells you about being a parent is that you'll know a whole new level of anxiety, unlikely anything you ever felt, and the kicker is, it will be there until the day you die, unless dementia kicks in first. My kid is the most amazing thing in the world for me, and I love him completely and unconditionally, but he will take me to an early grave, parenting with GAD is hardcore, thank you wife for being a normal person :)
