There was a time where I thought that Europe was (a bit) sane compared to the US.
Then I saw this: https://chaos.social/@echo_pbreyer/106302457670480030 (and possibly a similar one earlier) where 'The Greens' were the only ones to vote against blanked mass surveillance.
While I already lost confidence in politics and therefor planned to NOT vote, I ended up voting for (the .nl part of) 'The Greens' ... as an act of rebellion.
But it's a sad and depressing state of affairs :-/
