With this US election I’ve been thinking about what it is that has the biggest hold on us. That something that seems to overrun everything.
They are saying that the reason why so many people (who for sure are not going to get it any better) voted for T (just like with Voldemort, you don’t want to say the name), is that they don’t feel listened to.
Here comes someone who is saying the most vile things about, pretty much everyone who isn’t like him, and those people who feel the least important, close their ears to truth and decency, and follow along, thinking that they are being listened to.
Personally I don’t think he gives a rats ass about anyone but himself and looking at how he is choosing his people, it’s easy to get lost in fear.
What seems to also be happening though, is that many of us are turning this sense of despair into action. Maybe people are finally waking up and becoming more aware of the world around them and turning fear into care for each other.
