The World I Live In

I live in a country in which half of the people choose a president and party that promotes and then enacts policies that are overtly racists, cause harm to people, and enrich a few at the expense of many.

I know that half would argue they are trying to create conditions in which all could thrive and be successful (if they just work hard enough). But, that just isn’t what is happening. It’s not working.

Many peoples’ lives (not necessarily mine, I guess fortunately) are being made more difficult; more and more individuals are born in into life situations in which life will always be as struggle for survival. Consequently, more and more will grow up in frustration and foment increasing levels of anger. Then our leaders will stoke the fires of that anger and fear further enhancing the wealth of a few at the expense of many. I’m not talking about a redistribution of wealth as much as I’m talking about a redistribution of opportunity.

This is the world we choose to enact and create for ourselves. It makes me incredibly sad.

I don’t think I have anything else to say.
