Is this the "Eve of Destruction"? [YouTube]
No, that was at the beginning of 2010.
How about this New Year's resolution being just that: "Resolution", i.e. firmness of purpose; an "enough is enough" stance?
Looking back at how the last decade has been reported by government-approved media, it's pretty obvious one needs to look elsewhere for truth:

Caution: Items not exactly as described due to extenuating extenuations: (an attempt to represent an offence as less evil than it appears by presenting mitigating circumstances).
Here's a probable reason for doing that:
NatPost: Federal Funding for Media
Scroll to section titled: "WikiLeaks dump" Oct. 23, 2010
No mention of "Shock and Awe" [YouTube] despite GWB having drooled over those words constantly. No, the US just walked in to "free the Iraqi people" from Hussein and suddenly out came a horde of murderous criminals to take advantage of the well-meaning circumstances.
Now click over to this:
2011 Moammar Gadhafi killed
"Revolutionary Forces", eh? Hillary Clinton actually confirmed that it was the US whut dunnit:
Not exactly the Obama administration's finest hour. Obama was such a darling that he won the Nobel Peace Prize simply for saying he would bring the troops home from Iraq.
Julian Assange can hardly be faulted for corroborating Hillary's admitted role in the gruesome, grossly obscene murder of Gadhafi. Yet he languishes in Belmarsh hellhole for having dared to publish the truth [YouTube].

Sadly, the revelations about Hillary and the whole despicable Obama administration won Trump's election for him and that's how we now know for certain that the elected "leaders" no longer run the country, but are merely willing, narcissistic puppets for whom merely being seen as a leader is pleasure enough.
In Canada, if indeed George Soros is a "close friend" of our newly appointed Minister of Everything, she's there because she's good at taking direction, unlike Jodi Wilson Raybould who was and still is too knowledgeable and reputable to hold any government office (literally, because she's even been turfed out of her physical office) in the Trudeau stage play.
It's hardly incidental that Justin Trudeau was no sooner in power than he sent the Clinton Foundation $20M Canadian tax dollars, despite that it seems to be trying to reduce African populations under the guise of "helping the poor" while, at the same time, helping to enrich the pharmaceutical corporations. (See DuckDuckGo search results for George Soros and Clinton Foundation)
I'm reminded of a very well-made but depressing movie called The Constant Gardener (2005) in which a British couple take on a mission in Africa and "end up entangled in a pharmaceutical battle that has taken lives and, before the movie is over, will take many more".
It's also conceivable that the Clinton Foundation might function as a laundry, a conduit of sorts, judging from the list of donors:
Anyway ... good luck to all of us in this new decade because we need it. T.S. Eliot must have had these times in mind when he wrote the following:
Eliot also said this:
Some people feel even more authoritative than God. Just proximity to an important personage can make a sycophant feel important (like Freeland knowing Soros, for instance), or a tecky type knowing the now-deceased Steve Jobs (see image below).
No "please"; no "thank you"; just "do it"; even when speaking to God Hisself.
