Shooting black men who are no threat, mass murders of police, Brexit, Bloom, Trump v. Hillary, heroin is back and it’s angry. ISIS. Have we all gone crazy? Is this a low water mark in our modern civilization or is this just the 24 hour news cycle?
Is anyone really reading beyond the headlines? Are we really able to feel for all these remote people and events? Should we be living our individual lives differently? Are we all part of the problem, even when the problems seem horrible but so remote from our cosseted lives?
We all want an answer. We all want more peace. But don’t the bad actors also think that they are providing an answer and their own peace?
Humans are complicated. I think I’ll go teach the Pointer she can turn to the right.
