I always hated daylight savings time and now that I live in a different country and it affects communication so much I hate it more. HATE with a capital HATE!
Switch to UTC.
"No religion is true, but some religion, any religion, is politically necessary. Law and morality are insufficient for the large majority of men. Obedience to the law and to the morals are insufficient for making men happy. […]Law and morality are therefore in need of being supplemented by divine rewards and punishments."

I have never truly understood the justification for DST, let alone the reason(s) for extending it. I think we should just leave the clocks at one setting all year long.
If someone needs daylight they should schedule their activity around the time the Sun is shining. Changing the time doesnt accomplish really anything, the Sun will rise when it rises, and it goes down when it goes down. It changes daily.
All that changing the time does is **** up everyone's sleeping schedules. No gained anymore daylight than they would have. Hell there are millions of people working the night shift anyways. ANd down here in sunny Southern New Mexico I do most of my outside work either early in the morning or at dusk/night, to avoid the sun.
Again, setting the clocks back in the winter was put in place for the rural areas and the kids in those areas who take a bus to school. Without setting the clocks back in the winter these kids would be standing in the pitch black on dark roads waiting for their bus.
It's a safety issue.
I guess an argument can be made to leave the clocks like that all year, but then in the summer it's getting light at 4am. Kind of a waste. IDK.

DST will stay.
Wait and see.
