Anyone who has been online, turned on a radio or TV (or left their house) knows that US citizens are divided over the presidential election. Disunity and emotional reactions have become the typical responses. I’ve been finding myself reading social media posts, discussing current events over dinner, and yelling at the television. Lately, politics have interrupted way too many social events. My facebook feed is filled with pro-Trump and anti-Trump comments and memes.
Rather than spend inordinate amounts of time posting responses (and at the suggestion of several close friends), I’ve returned to blogging as a way to explain my positions. More importantly, I’m going to attempt to spread a bit of logic in the midst of political and social confusion and attempt to shine a light on the truth.
As Leonard Cohen said:
The birds they sang at the break of day
“Start again” I heard them say
Don’t dwell on what has passed away
or what is yet to be.
… There is a crack in everything
That’s how the light gets in.
– “Anthem” by Leonard Cohen
I plan to write about US society, politics, and civilization. I will offer sources (and yes, that means footnotes). Rants may ensue. You’ve been warned.
Thanks for reading. See you soon.
Walk in Beauty!
