In the long run, this is true. It’s living through the pissy times in between that isn’t fun.
I do believe that the times we are facing have had a positive effect. They have brought to light the magnitude of hatred in America I used to believe that it was only a few, rare people who feared and hated their fellow man so much. Now I know it’s at least a third of people.
It also proves what lack of leadership can do. In times of crisis, people tend to come together. The Covid-19 pandemic should have drawn us together. Instead, leadership is using it to drive us apart.
Valuable intelligence. We now know the enemy’s strengths and weaknesses.
