where people aren’t happy unless someone takes the blame, even if it isn’t always logical sometimes, but rather emotional or symbolic even.
And with so many social reckonings many all being felled.
I suppose the games of war/greed as well as the steps of progression usually happen off of the backs of the marginalized and oppressed.
Except now it’s coming for rich, privileged and entitled people.
I am really having such a hard time with Critical Race Theory and of course even more trouble with its opposite.
Sorry. I know. No one likes to talk about this. Don’t mind me. I’m just having an existential crisis along with every other crisis in my life. Like I need that too right now? 😒😶🙄
It’s just hard to accept that this is reality and then on the same breath not have this underlying sense that you aren’t really wanted in your own country. In the place you were given birth. In the only place you really know. The only culture you understand except whatever choppy heritage you managed to learn from your family.
I’m absolutely not bitching about this or even racism existing. I’ve come to a place of peace with that decades ago.
I’m just becoming more aware of how subconscious bigotry in general is even for well meaning people. I really hope we can move away from an us vs them treatment of our fellow human beings. That is my biggest hope for humanity. And frankly…..it’s the only thing that I think will save us.
But you know what. And here is the thing. Americans really can pull themselves together and get past all these things when we need to. There will always be valiant heroes on all sides who are for real truth and honor.
We have some truly amazing people from all walks of life in this country. People willing to die for their belief in the spirit of our constitution and amendments. People willing to risk their lives for others to defend these.
We say we are the leaders of the planet. Let’s lead this country into the progressive place it needs to be and let’s build coalitions with other countries that benefit everyone and the planet.
We must become the party everyone wants to join again. This time not through manipulation. This time without thoughts of exploitation.
We need to become so progressive that we become the hub of innovation again, because innovative, genius, rich people will want to live here. People that bring revenue that we tax the heck out of to pay for our progressive ways. win/win.
It all makes perfect sense to me.
Then we lead the world to a basic sense of freedom for everyone on earth. Well……
I can most certainly dream about things like this.
I wish I had people here IRL to banter with about stuff like this. I’d love to belong to an artist’s salon of philosophers and dreamers, lovers and intellectuals, just like you all. 😉
That would be so awesome.
God bless us all❣️
