TRUMP, GLOBAL PANDEMIC, BLACK LIVES MATTER- Message to my Son 1-9
1. Maybe we all feel the entire earth is fracturing and want to grab something even if it cuts.

Like with political sides that act as cults I'm thinking there are fractions of factions each believing they have the Truth. I so agree everything is so crazy now and all at once like prisms scattering the unity of one light into a mess of unfathomable colors.

I've been on Twitter trying my hand at articulating my political views, learning about the spectrums of the current rage. The fuck trump cartoons are fun but not the sickening videos of law enforcement practicing enemy combat on by standers, Trump's fortressing off Lafayette Park, the "go-back where-you came-froms," Beevis and Butthead arsonists in antifa black, the blind loyalty for Trump's dementia

Biden comes out saying the police should continue to be funded, nothing about restructuring. No courage to stand up to the police unions. Same o. Nancy Pelosi and other dems exhibit the kneel at Lloyd's memorial - expropriating identical vests made of kinde cloth - clueless to the colonial implications.

Perhaps the only change will be to return less obvious ly brutal "normal" when Trump is gone. Flawed democracy is better than none, I figure.
