“We have a word for everything except for what we really think and feel.”
– Saul Bellow
My words are inconsequential, but I just had to comment on today’s events in Washington, DC. Tonald Drump is a disgrace to this country and to its highest office. He acts like a petulant child who wants to break the toys that have been taken away.
As regular readers know, I am no fan of the policy and ideology of the Democratic Party. I think the Antifa protests are very dangerous and are just as disrespectful of this country’s processes and institutions as the protests/riots of today. HOWEVER, Antifa is not incited by the President Of The United States.
I am angry, dismayed, heartbroken and, right now, thinking that the dissolution of which I keep writing may indeed occur in my lifetime. Politics in this country have become nothing except about the demonization of those with whom you disagree. That is a manifestation of the “Me Me” culture, stoked by both sides in an effort to gain power.
Today’s events show the danger of blindly following any ideology, of being a part of any cult of personality. I sincerely fear that events like today’s will become more frequent.
