— and may conceal a beautiful next step.
I never thought there’d come a day when I’d sometimes pick up a Fox News broadcast. And I wonder how dear old Dad — who, in his 90s, watched the nasty back and forth on Fox News at high volume (he was deaf, and I wonder if his obsession drove Mom into dementia), hour after hour, day after day — would compute the transmogrifying “realities” in the America of 2017. Including the fact that even his dear old Fox News seems to be morphing, along with everything else.
Kucinich tells it like it is, soaring beyond the usual political divides. Hopefully, the absurdity has reached such an intensely convoluted end-state that the entire shebang will implode and leave us, rising from the graves of our passionate ideological “positions,” dusting ourselves off, and looking across the vast plain of destruction towards each other. No matter who we are. No matter what the mental crap that “they” try to cram into and through our brains hour after hour, constructing the great divides that keep us separate, lonely, and hungry for meaning.
