The dignity of the Nobel Peace Prize should have been sunk when Henry Kissinger won it in 1973 whilst the US was engaged in carpet bombing North Vietnam. It must have invested big money in public relations to recover from that one.

It was Marx who said history repeats itself, first as tragedy, then as farce. Under neoliberalism, the barbaric phase of capitalism, tragedy has become indistinguishable from farce.
