I get that I’m a “hair brained liberal” by most people’s standards. But I don’t consider myself a liberal. I don’t consider myself all that political really.
But honestly lately, over the last few years talking about politics makes a lot of people sound cruel; even the left: with their anger and riots and over the top hatred of Trump…..but I have to say that the right seems to take the cake on it, not all but…..
And see….the thing is……I like people. I like talking to people and talking about politics sometimes just leaves me with a bad taste in my mouth.
Like why did we have to share that? I am all for transparency and disclosure and honesty, but it is also a big giant world that we have to share and cohabitate as pleasantly as possible.
Do I want to know your secret fears? Do I want to see your secret prejudices said out loud? Do I want to walk it all back and see how you got there? Because I really feel it takes that to understand where someone is truly coming from and not judge them harshly for the seemingly cruel things they say (on either political side). And that’s more energy and time that I want to take to talk about a subject that truly doesn’t even interest me to begin with. Like almost not at all.
I will if pressed talk about politics. I will. If it comes up and I can add to or correct anything. But no one likes the latter and who really needs the former?
I mean seriously. Isn’t anyone tired of talking about all the bullshit yet?
It isn’t going to change. Did those people storming the capital really think they are going to change the course of the election? Do they truly believe their voice will change anything?
Not trying to make anyone angry here. I’m just saying that the frustration they are feeling should be amplified 100 times and that’s what BLM is to many more people. But do you see them storming the Capital?
I’ve seen some interesting things come out of the BLM movement. I’m super proud of some government efforts. They are far superceding the private sector, to absolutely no one’s surprise.
Let people have a choice in whether they do the right thing or not and watch them do the wrong thing. That seems to be the way. “What can we get away with?”
But corporations are led by people.
So………maybe they should be more accountable.
We all need to be more accountable because none of this is happening under a rock and nothing is ever truly hidden.
I am starting to hate the digital age. But there doesn’t seem to be a going back in time. Does there? We are stuck moving forward into truly surreal territory. I’m sure it will be stranger and wilder than anything we ever imagined. Because it’s all so new.
I hope somehow we make it to a place of good stewardship for our planet and amicable and mutually beneficial cohabitation between all people’s.
Who knows which way it will all go. It’s all such a mystery. And all in all, with all that’s going on, I am surprised that I can still say I’m glad I’m here for the ride.
And hopefully you are to❣️🙏🏽
