We are not an enlightened society we are more dense than learned. For the life of me I cannot fathom how anyone can go through life without being aware that how we treat ourselves is how we should treat others. It is a fundamental and core principle to treat others as we wish to be treated, yet even the supposed evangelical base in our country is more pharisee than christian. So on we go toward our own destruction by not facing reality with facts instead of talking point fiction. When we as a nation do hit that crossroads where death and realization fork, I wonder which road we will take? In my own mind I had never considered that we wouldn't do the tight thing but my mind's vision of an absolute is now in question.
Each time I see another republican voted into public office I cringe and feel the sting of another of the hundreds of paper cuts we Americans continue to inflict upon ourselves. What we are doing is performing a suicide by not allowing ourselves to behave with dignity and respect. We are killing ourselves and I wonder when any therapy will be enough to save us! All I can do is fight against the death tide that is about to sweep us away and hope that enough of us stop believing in the fear and despair that republicans are trying mightily to sell us. We are not confined to being dense. We have the choice to break out from the maniacal republicans who keep winning elections in order to keep our death knell intact.
