I’m rooting for rout, but a rout is difficult to find in the cards. The problem with half measures is that they can be, as we are watching now, too easily undone. There has to be a ever widening gap between them and us...and us needs to know not just the facts, but how to find them.
I’m with the kids, but I’m not letting them drive...yet. There is a great ignorance to step beyond...it’s difficult to straddle it patiently, but balance is required, at every step. They...the kids, are looking for flaws, and looking for shortcuts. Me, I’m looking for a rout. I’m looking to hear capitulation, and an admission of past ignorance, personally overcome.
I can forgive. But not forget...not the petty crimes, but the high crimes, and those that went along for the ride. I’ll never forget...the facts. I’m not angry, but emotional. I feel. It hurts to watch the ranking still, who have presided over this rightward shift, speaking as if they care, now.
I don’t blame the kids, the immigrants, the poor or even the great mass of deluded followers. I blame the power grabbers, the controller’s, the cold hearted dealers of destruction; those who cannot forgive.
A rout is difficult to watch, but I’ve mistakenly left the vanquished unsure of their defeat too often. I wish a good talking to would be enough. They didn’t hear...they don’t hear...or see reality. They don’t seek truth or facts. They hate, and teach hatred, they monger fear.
I remain fearlessly optimistic, balanced...on both sides of a gap that needs to widen. We need to be beyond this, yet again. On one side is truth and justice, on the other side is a past that needs to be remembered and taught. We need to widen that gap so much so that we can’t return to an America that was never just, or truthful about her past.
If it takes a rout, then so be it. It will be no more difficult to watch then the crap we are being fed by ignorant elite of both parties.
