Last night was a tremendous victory for sanity and democracy in a system that is teetering on the edge of oblivion.
Starkly urgent and clear and present danger to our democracy. News of fentanyl in envelopes to harm or kill election officials. No one is allowed to feel safe. Voting is an act of courage. Election workers are certainly targets—and courageous in this time. Much appreciation to all of you in this conversation.
Great metaphor, Jim .... in addition to the icebergs that the fascists are dedicated to guiding our Titanic ship of state into, there are also the wildcards of increasingly frequent and devastating chaos as our climate continues collapsing ... wildcards that are potentially more devastating than Putin’s proximity to launching nukes and his madness quite capable of doing so. The great teachers I study, assure me that our hearts and minds are quite capable of processing the tsunami of threats we must be aware, without panic ... and I am grateful for your reminder, that we each can maintain equanimity, regardless of what happens in the world.
