It’s jarring, disorienting even to realize the meaning of all of the things that ate happening uh,b the country and in the world right now. We don’t notice nearly enough that it’s now acceptable to label a group of people as inherently dangerous and therefore less deserving of our respect. It’s okay to blatantly steal indigenous lands and imperil their health and well-being for the sake of oil and fracked gas that are themselves bringing us closer each day to the apocalypse. It’s okay to syrup women of the right to control their bodies and people of their right to love whomever they will. How is this okay now?

I see these politicians being appointed to positions of power and they seem only to want to sow discord, division and suffering. Am I wrong? Am I not seeing clearly? Please, someone, enlighten me.
