It’s my sad observation that, especially in an election year, so many people are prodded to be hair trigger ready to find everything wrong, and then blame “them”…the other party, the other candidate, their neighbor that disagrees, etc. Reason is replaced with rage. Tolerance is replaced with division. All of the wrong-making, much of it fictional (like the thousands of the president’s lies), is so intentionally destructive, and it reflects an underlying anger that dwells in people and is cultivated by politicians for their personal gain. Of course political campaigns are ALL about wrong-making, unrest and blaming the other side. Once an election is over, that’s when the winner is supposed to “heal the nation” from all the divisiveness they have just spent many months and billions of dollars creating. Such hypocrisy….except this president has no intention of healing the nation, instead he incites divisiveness, wrong-making, anger and chaos. He truly is a psychopath and danger to us, our democracy and our culture of reason & civility. May we be the ones who bring reason, responsibility and tolerance to bear. May we be thought-full…not just reactive.
