A Call to Reality

My first thought was he lied in every word, this orange-hued grifter devoid of soul. Like a poison spreading across the land, breaking apart what once was whole. Family turning against each other, friends dividing across party lines. A country torn apart by words, lies so abundant they become the norm.

Delusionality on television screens, in printed articles and media feeds. The illusion of our stability fading with each “breaking news” that chips away at our democracy. One narcissistic liar alone could not achieve such impact, but tho many could look at him and see the decency he lacked, there were enough who wanted to be fooled.

With his ever changing message wearing down logical discernment of the masses he sits in his room laughing at the destruction. Players who think they’ll profit from him do his bidding against sworn pledges. In regards to performing as a leader he lacks in basic functions, and spends time yelling in front of hedges.

How then do we defend these opinions claimed as facts, as we struggle to comprehend if it’s just common sense his believers lack. Can it simply be that they’re just fooled, or are they truly filled with hate, thinking this man is worthy to rule, never realizing their mistake.

The emperor who has no clothes and everyone is cheering as if he’s fully dressed but this is no story in a book. His words, his actions, impacting millions. This man with no shame who is a villain and crook. Yet I should not even call him a man, for he has no honor nor wisdom. He is but a spoiled child who never grew up, yet somehow now rules this kingdom.

For that is exactly what he wants this to be, a place he can rule without the checks of democracy. With him as the supreme ruler above common toils, making illegal deals to line his pockets. Instilling his family in positions of power and demanding they all stay loyal.

This dangerous path we tread will lead to darkness and ruin, if we can not find ways to defend against the alternate versions of “truth”. We must figure out how to unite the divide that’s amassed cross the world, or else we’ll lose more than our nation as the destruction unfurls.

 

 

Does It Break Your Heart?

Watching so many people blatantly disregard facts in lieu of stubborn denial breaks my heart.  The idea that there are countless individuals who have zero regard for common decency, zero interest in preserving our planet, and zero desire to assist anybody who is even the slightest bit different from them breaks my heart.

How do you wake up each morning, full of so much hate and be ok with that?

How do you fall asleep at night without realizing you’re a cancer on civilized society and this planet?

How can you remain so fucking oblivious to the hypocrisy and corruption you live and breath and defend each day?

How can you look at what is going on in America, hell across the planet, and not understand what side of the line you’re on, and if you do know that you’re on the side of bigotry, hatred, destruction, and corruption, how do you live with that?

I don’t want some deflecting, self-righteous, gaslighting response either. I challenge you to state your case using logic, truthful facts, and justifiable morality.

The idea that my country is playing chicken with an authoritarian agenda fucking BREAKS MY HEART.

The possibility that even after irrefutable proof has been obtained and presented that there are still numerous people who refuse to acknowledge it, and refuse to put the wellbeing of their country over their allegiance to an epitome of vileness BREAKS MY HEART.

If there continues to be a divide between reality and delusionality this democracy won’t survive.
