This may be the way that it was just before Rome fell. With barbarians cradling assault rifles at the gate, the commentariat wile away the time that is left to them by worrying themselves sick about Zwarte Piet-type problems. Zwarte Piet is Santa’s cool helper and is a harmless Christmas tradition for kids that dates back (probably) to a time before the average villager in the low countries (Holland and Belgium to you and me) ever saw an African. A Belgian government minister recently got attacked for continuing the tradition.
